Feat

Brown Bagger

Remember emptying the contents of your lunch bag to discover a hand-writen note from Mom tucked tightly between your turkey sandwich and pretzel sticks? Or the way the american cheese and mayo oozed through the white bread after spending five hours too many stuffed in a locker? Well, it's time to revisit the good old days!

To accomplish this feat, you must bring your lunch to work at least 10 days. (Melting cheese, love notes, and lockers not included). You'll save money, eat better, and have a reason to tote around a new uber cool accessory. Brown bags are the new black, after all. Try out some of these great meal ideas to get you started. Or throw some peanut butter between two slices of multi-grain and call it a day.  All the cool kids are doing it.

sorry, i have to be the annoying tree-hugging one here: reusable bags!!!

urbansherpa's picture

I can do this one. :)

snowhite197's picture

is this 10 days in a row? or just 10 days throughout October?

superkk's picture

Do we hit feat accompli for each day that we bring our lunch? I did today, Day 1, so I'm going to hit the button.

Laurelie's picture

Be sure to use glass containers when bringing in food to heat up. Plastic in the microwave is a BIG no no!

potluckorchard's picture

I was wondering that too...I just hit accomplish for today but not sure if that was right! I guess I need to be good for 9 more days then!

andrealc23's picture

Easy! I bring my lunch 4 out of 5 days a week!

michlny's picture

i dig bringing my lunch to work every day. not only do i brown bag lunch, i brown bag breakfast, snacks, dinner if i'm working late, and coffee of course. in fact, i spend quite a bit of time organizing, preparing and enjoying packing it all up the nite before. totally satisfying. and happily healthy and green.

bg's picture

I'm with bg. I spend a lot of time cooking and packing up my breakfast, lunch and snacks at work... and if I'm going to be late, dinner as well. Sometimes I feel like all I do it cook and wash dishes!

kornflowers's picture

Completed. I made a spiced stew on Sunday that lasted 3 days.
Mung beans
Celery
Onion
Garlic
Thai Curry mix
On Wednesday I cooked some red quinoa for the SW-e-AT challenge. The next two days i took it into work and ate it with Jaipur vegetables on Thursday and Punjab Choley on Friday.

@HereNow's picture

in agreement about resuable bags!

Brooke's picture

Between trying to save money and trying to eat in this new Paleo way, I've actually been brownbagging some breakfasts (If I work out too early at eat at home) all snacks and lunch to work for about 3 weeks now.

ADRIANA's picture

..and instead of the brown bag gotta go with the reusable tote from whole foods.  nothing like avoiding the burgers, fries and milkshakes at work with some yummy wholesome food!

ALKings10's picture

I have easily done this over the last three weeks as i bring my lunch in my reuseable lunch box (4 days each week).
