Most of you are work late and are used to eating outside for dinner. Sometimes you bring the same food that is leftover for lunch. Or if you cook at home and if there is food left you bring that to work because it is easy. However if you are doing this often you need to stop and think if it is a good idea to eat leftovers every day.
It can save money to some extent when you pack the last night’s dinner in personalized lunch box for lunch the next day. There two things you won’t buy any lunch packs at work so that saves money. But if you buy too much food for dinner hoping to take the leftovers, it is really not saving much money. However even if you cook at home and if you cook little bit extra to take for next day, now that can save money, because you are not buying outside you are cooking at home. Restaurant food can be less expensive option. So it works both ways if you cook at home you save money but if you eat out regularly for dinner and order extra for the next day it is not saving any money.
Not very healthy
If you eat out constantly for dinner and keep eating the same greasy food for meal the next day this will not do any good for your health. Doing this once in a while will not cause any problems, but an everyday habit will result in obesity and other health issues. You need to balance the calories you intake and the food amounts. If you ate heavy cream pasta for dinner, dial it down and pack something with fewer calories like a salad or simply steamed vegetables in personalized lunch boxes for next day, you can also use them as kids gift ideas as kids love these kind of products. Same with homemade dinner, usually dinner time is when the kids and the whole family meets so you may usually cook something tasty like a pasta, a roast or even a lasagna. So if you eat the same food next day you are simply adding on more calories. If you are trying to watch your weight or lose weight this method will not be very helpful. Instead you can prepare your next day food in the night and keep.
This is of course very easy to simply cook or buy food once for two meals. You only need to pack it next day and take to work. However when you are thinking about the ease of doing this also consider the possibility of you eating the same food for two meals. Some of you may not like this but doing it because it is the easy way. You should enjoy your every meal. Even if you are trying to lose weight or on a diet you should be able to enjoy the food you eat. So don’t always think about the easy way.
