Actually, let me go ahead and add on to that post title,
"5 Cheap and Healthy Lunch Ideas for the Busy Girl that Can't Cook to Save Her Life but Wants to be Fit and Confident in a Bikini this Summer Without Spending A Small Fortune at the Gourmet Hipster Salad Shop Everyday on her Lunch Break."
Ok, I feel better now.
First, let's talk about drinking large amounts of calories throughout the day. It is just silliness to waste empty calories on sugary, high calorie drinks. Save those calories for a second helping of low-cal, sugar free ice cream later on in the day when you're watching biggest loser. Come on, don't lie, I know we all eat ice cream while watching the biggest loser. Eating ice cream is to biggest loser as Kayne is to Kayne. (Did I use that joke right?)
The drinks I have stocked in my fridge right now are these new ten calorie, full flavor soft drinks. I first found them when I grabbed a whole big case at Walmart to keep on hand in my hotel room during my 10 day trip to Miami. There are four different flavors including 7UP, Sunkist, A&W and Canada Dry. I wanted to be sure to have those within an arms-reach instead of a pointless, high cal drink from the vending machine. They are only 10 calories, but don't sacrifice any of that taste and full flavor we all love in our soft drinks.
I mean, which would you rather have, an attention-grabbing-for-all-the-right-reasons beach bod, or a bathing suit that could double as a parachute and flotation device? I am not going skydiving, and I already know how to swim, so I'll opt for the hot beach bod and the 10 cal beverage! With that said, now you know why I've paired the 7up Ten with each of my work week lunches!
So let's get started, I've listed out lunches that are healthy, easy (my dog could make these) and inexpensive. Way less than eating out for lunch each day! These aren't intended be life changing, I'm no chef, just a workin' girl trying to make every day a little easier!

So there you have it, 5 healthy lunch ideas that all use pretty much the exact same ingredients, just switched around. The more you can use the same ingredients for different purposes, obviously the cheaper your final bill will be!
Another way to get your final bill cheaper is to use a coupon, which I just so happen to have for you! Take $0.50 off of the purchase of TWO 2 Liter bottles or TWO 4-pack cans of 7UP TEN, A&W TEN, Canada Dry TEN, RC TEN or Sunkist TEN soda. Offer available while supplies last, from 3/27-4/17.
