Growing up we were always told that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. As an adult, I truly believe it. If I skip breakfast, I feel sluggish all day and actually tend to make poor eating choices during the day. On the days when I do eat something in the morning, I eat a lighter lunch and seem to have more energy.
Charlie has never been a breakfast eater. As a goal for this year and to hopefully reduce his blood sugar, I am trying to get him to eat earlier and spread more food out during the day. This week when I packed his lunch, I packed less lunch type food and gave him something from breakfast and a snack.
Since I always try to pack something he can eat in a hurry, you may think that some of the lunches are the best choices but he likes to have something hot and something he can eat within a few minutes if work is demanding.
These were the lunches hot dogs with kraut, chicken quesadilla, chili, hot dogs with relish and onion and a chicken sandwich. While the snacks were simple but filled with protein. I gave him cheese with summer sausage, celery and peanut butter, turkey wrapped around pieces of swiss cheese, apples with peanut butter and a piece of bread with bacon and tomato. I know I should have taken pictures but my mind is going so fast in the mornings that I can rarely get things together enough to snap a picture of snacks.
