Why National Pack Your Lunch Day?
Lunch time is that precious moment of the day about which all of us can get excited. It’s a moment in the middle of the busy day when we treat ourselves a delicious bite of energy from our lunch boxes that were enclosed with healthy dishes along with a lot of our mother’s love.
Just keep your mind still and remind yourself of the good old days when your mother used to pack your lunch during your schooling days that I guess you may have traded with your friends and classmates for their dishes, which might have eventually resulted in building some great friendships. National Pack Your Lunch Day is a day that allows you to revisit the great golden days by packing a delicious lunch for yourself just as your mother would have done for you in your childhood.
In my view, lunch, even after being the most crucial meal, doesn’t get that much importance in our daily lives. If you don’t agree, just think of it on your own that. Have you ever told someone that I need to take lunch right now as it’s a pretty important meal or introduced lunch as a meal for anyone? I bet that you won’t be able to remember such moments, which proves my statement.
It’s quite obvious that an empty stomach is a great obstacle in producing higher work efficiency. When an individual keeps working the whole day, he needs to have a dosage of energy in the form of lunch to make him stay agile and focused on work.
Lunch is an abbreviated form of luncheon, which means the food eaten at any time of the day or night whose meaning gradually changed to a small or mid-sized meal taken during mid the day. Lunch servings vary according to the various cultures, traditions, and eating habits around different parts of the world.
With the changing times, everyone had forgotten the health benefits of lunch as they keep continuously pacing towards fast foods such as burgers, pizza, noodles, etc., which may give them instantaneous pleasure but damages their health in the long run. This day gives us a chance to get rid of these fast foods.
Packed lunch has several advantages. It is cheap compared to other fast food options. It is healthy because you would have surely customized it according to your diet plan, and it is free of unknown ingredients that can come to you in fast foods without your choice.
