1. Bring your own morning coffee in a travel mug; thatís good for the environment, your wallet, and will keep things warm.
2. Bring leftovers for lunch.
3. If you do splurge on eating take out with everyone else, have a healthy high fiber snack at least 15 minutes before hand so you donít eat as much.

Great list!

I've gotten into the habit of buying a whole chicken on Sundays, which is incredibly cheap. I lather it in herbs, stuff it with an onion and some carrots and bake it at 350. The breasts stretch into 2 meals, the thighs and everything else are baked into DH's lunch casserole and I make stock out of what's left on the bones for my veggies soups. It ends up being very economical and healthier (especially with the stock and how much sodium I end up saving myself).
