I usually put a big hunk of meat in the crockpot on the weekend--a couple whole chickens, or beef, bison, or pork, with seasonings. Then we eat the leftovers cold throughout the week for lunches. Add some veg and fruit to the lunch bag, or a salad, and you have a good meal.
When my son was a teen, an apple and a banana went into the lunch bag in addition to the rest. Larabars are also good for between-meal snacks for a growing boy!
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
