As an over-scheduled working stiff, like you, food often takes a backseat to other priorities. If I’m up against a deadline and forget to pack a lunch for work, I either skip lunch or grab whatever is fast and close-by. Neither option serves me when my body craves nutrients from whole, fresh food, and I get caught in an afternoon brain fog. What a difference it makes when I prepare a fresh lunch from home ahead of time! Livestrong.com recommendsa mid-day meal packed with nutrient-dense, low fat and low in calories food. Below are five healthier lunch ideas that are easy to make and pack for work – but also equally as delicious if you enjoy your meal at home;
Mason Jar Salads. I love mason jars because they are cute and functional, especially when it comes to packing a lunch. You can prep several salads for the week at once in under 20 minutes. Add the dressing at the bottom of the jar, followed by salad toppings (preferably home grown or organic locally grown) and then lettuce on top. Select produce in a variety of colors to consume more essential nutrients. Take a look at Green Plate Rule’s salad combinations.
Leftovers. After barbequing, I’ll throw the leftover meat and grilled veggies into serving sized containers so I can grab and go in the morning. Sometimes I add spinach and leftover become a salad. Voila!
