You know, in Jr. High I would take a packed lunch and Mom (God love her) would always pack it. She would freeze the little cartons of yogert the night before and then wrap them in foil when she put them in the lunchbox. By lunch time they were partially thawed and I could stir them up. They had lots of little ice crystals through it -it was was so good, ha! I may have to try that again!
Like someone else mentioned, I do a lot of meat and cheese roll ups, with an apple and maybe some nuts.
I'll be honest (and this is probably OT), a lot of it is a mind game to me. I play mind games with myself. I used to think "everyone's staring at me, the fat chick on a diet, wondering how long till I start porking out on junk again." Now I spread it out like it's a picnic or imagine I'm on the left bank of Paris eating European style, or maybe at a winery in Northern California. I pretend it's all very natural people are staring because they wish they were having a picnic, too! lol! And you know what - in the end I found out the stares are mostly in my mind, hahaha! Am I paranoid or what?! lol!
Good topic - and thanks for the memory of my mom.
