You guys stop at fast food places when your out working all day or pack your lunches?

Me, i pack. Nothing like you own meal. Sometimes i dont bring enough just fruits then tempted to stop at wendys or something but i hold the fort and wait til I get home.
Save lots of money this way. Sometimes with drinks…..lemon flavored watered all day bany!

Yeah i had the same habit with vanilla flavored cappuccino every night at one time years ago. Haven't touched one of them in about a decade.

Always Pack. Filtered tap water in re usable containers. Went to zero store bought water. Besides the waste, it was another step of work. empties falling out of truck, caps, what a Pia. Finally after years and years I said I'm not taking another bottle again.

Usually have orange juice, yogurt, a hard boiled egg and a banana for breakfast. Will stop for fast for lunch most times. Usually a quarter pounder with cheese, no ketchup or mustard and a coffee. No fries.

You should try Kill Cliff drinks. They claim to be a cleaner energy drink. I order them online.

If I dont eat before I leave the house, I will occasionally stop at the gas station and get a salad, pizza, and a Diet Dew, then not eat until I get home. My wife is good about packing the drinking water.

breakfast is 2 glasses of water and 2 black coffees

2-3 litres of electrolyte water is my packed lunch

4pm "nicoise" salad

6:30pm evening meal
What electrolyte water do you get? I've use Liquid IV and Water Boy. Both are good, but Liquid IV has a lot of sugar, supposedly its for glucose.

Honestly we got the containers that you pour water into the top and it trickles through filter. I bought enough filters for at least a year. It was my one thing I loaded up on when everyone else was buying hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Luckily our city water is good enough to do this, which may not be the case for everyone. If that wasn't an option I would to the Ice Mountain.

90% of the trash in the ocean comes from the third world. Disposable sandwich bags, and straws for that matter, are not a real problem.

Since I don't work for a living, it isn't fair for me to compare my work lunch.

My hiking lunch is a protein bar and water. Anything more slows me down.

When I slung a wand in my teens, I skipped lunch most days, or ate what the sweet little old ladies gave me*

*they were probably in their 40s :biggrin:
