Weekend Vs. Weekday Eating

Do you know notice that your eating habits on the weekend are different than during the work week?  I certainly do.  I seem to eat a lot healthier when I’m at work rather than at home.  Not to say that I’m filling up on junk food or anything, I just seem to eat more fruits and vegetables during the week.

It must be that the weekdays are more structured. 
 For breakfast, I only have time to eat one bowl of cereal and milk; on the weekends I usually have two.   During the week I prepare my lunch the night before, loading my bag with pre-cut fruits and vegetables to snack on all day.  On the weekend I am so busy running around with the kids and tending to household chores, that I barely have time to eat lunch!  

How can I make sure to eat a more balanced diet on the weekends too?   I might try adding salad to the menu either as a main dish or a side dish.  Also, I’m going to prepare some cut fruits and veggies beforehand just like I do on the weekdays.  A little effort goes a long way.

How does your weekend eating differ from your weekday eating?
