1. Hard Boiled Eggs (HBEs). I eat about 8 eggs a day, for both breakfasts & "in betweeners." HBEs are a fast & easy way to get a dose of protein. Another thing I love about HBEs are transportability & lightness on the stomach. I suffer IBS, so I only feel top notch when I'm eating foods that don't weigh heavily in the belly. And no, I don't eat yolks. I eat way too many eggs & that would kill my cholesterol...also, I've never liked HBE yolk. Gross.

3. Storage. I lovelovelove the fact we can now by super-cheap "tupperware" at the grocery store. You never have to worry about losing lids, it's completely dishwasher safe, & when it gets gross, throw it out & buy more! On any given Sunday, my fridge is completely full of containers. And Mr. X hates it because he hates trying to fit them all in the dishwasher & putting them away in an organized fashion. For me, they're a lifesaver.
Side note: also good are sandwich-sized baggies of the Ziploc variety. Small enough to fit snacks & not over-indulge if you put treats in them.

Now go buy some storage!
