When I’m too Lazy to Cook My Work Meals

I love to cook. It’s one of my favorite activities. But, once-in-a-while, I just feel too lazy to pull it off. On occasion, I also find I just don’t have time. So, what do I do? Well, I cheat. I buy pre-made salads and fruit for my weekend work shifts. No preparation needed!

Last weekend was one such weekend where I didn’t feel like cooking and I didn’t have a lot of time for meal prep. I went to Wal-Mart and bought three prepared salads, some already cut watermelon, a banana, and two pears. That’s what I had for the three remaining shifts. (Note that the soda on the back is not mine, lol.)

I actually like salads and fruit, so it didn’t really bother me any to have these meals. To switch things up, I bought three different types of salads. Granted, the total cost for each meal was over $4.00, which was more than I would have wanted to spend. But it works in a pinch. And it was healthier (and cheaper) than ordering out.

What do you do when you don’t want to cook, or don’t have time, but need meals for work?
