I love giant bags.

Regular laptop bags don’t do it for me.

I need a bag large enough for the contents of my life.

So for What I Ate Wednesday,

I’m going to admit that I cram a ridiculous amount of crap necessary items in my bag.

What you’ll find in my bag:

  • Laptop
  • Power cord
  • Notebook
  • Pens/Pencils
  • T-shirt, shorts, sports bra (I keep shoes in my gym locker)
  • Ipod/headphones
  • Blackberry, iphone (yes, both)
  • Water bottle
  • Food (see below)


Lately, this has been Kelloggs Fiber Plus Cinnamon Oat cereal. 110 calories, and a whoooole lotta fiber. Keeps me full until lunch time!

Crystal Light

Yeah, yeah, yeah, aspartame & artificial sweeteners are the devil and I’m going to die. But I’m trying to ween myself off my daily diet coke habit. So it’s the lesser of two evils. Now get off your high horse and keep reading.

Hummus + Whole Wheat Wraps

It’s still cheaper to get my greens from the cafeteria… but I’ve been bringing my own wraps and hummus to work with me. Yes, I assemble my wraps at my desk. So what? (That cucumber is from my garden!)

And no, I don’t waste money on those travel size packs of hummus. I bring the whole tub of hummus to work.


Apple, pear, peach, banana… something. If I don’t have a snack in the afternoon, I will raid the pantry when I get home. (Not pretty.) Sure, I could probably just eat a larger lunch and stay full… but I like looking forward to my daily dose of Vitamin C.

Truvia (Stevia)

Sometimes, I want a little sweet-ness in my coffee (or my greek yogurt) so I like to keep these on hand, just in case!

Do you pack your lunch? What’s the strangest thing you carry in your bag?
