Packing a lunch box to work requires efficient planning of groceries and what you plan to cook for the week.

But look at the brighter side, taking a lunch box not just saves your money, but also will help you in eating healthy, eating in the right portions and may be help in your weight loss efforts if you have one.
Taking a lunch to work is a great way to ensure that you get lots of healthy nutrients from your meals keeping you energized for the rest of the day.

Here are 4 reasons why taking a healthy Lunch Box To Work will make a difference.
1- Get Your Day's Nutrition
By cooking food at home and packing it piping hot into your lunch box, will take you back to your childhood, when your parents packed your school lunch in the three tier steel carriers. You will have a fresh meal that is nutrient-dense. You can pack your proteins, fruits, salad, roti and sabzi along with a bottle of buttermilk to ensure you get your day's nutrition.
2- Maintain Portion Control in Food
Binge eating happens when you order in or eat in a food court or office canteen. You tend to eat foods that are packed with fats and also tend to over eat. But if you pack food into lunch boxes, it will help you to eat in the right portion and avoid binge eating.

Eating out everyday in an office canteen, is not just unhealthy, but you also end up spending a lot of money on food you might not enjoy everyday. At home, as well you can save time and money by planning your weekly menus and shopping groceries for the entire week. This way there is minimal wastage of food and you also save time planning everyday on what to pack for lunch.
