Lunches can get repetitive and a spark of inspiration for some new, healthy meals to take to work next week is what’s on the menu today.
Planning your lunches is imperative to staying on track — you’ll save a ton of money, eat better quality food bringing it from home, and not have to rush out for lunch and back before your lunch hour ends. It’s a win-win-win.
One great option is hummus and a variety of veggies, chickpea salad, and a piece of pita bread (or skip the bread), but it is filling and delicious. Chickpea salad is a great alternative to chicken salad and is made by merely mashing chickpeas with a fork and combining with guacamole.
Another option is creating your own Chinese food. A yummy chicken teriyaki, broccoli, bell pepper, and brown rice bowl will conquer that craving for Chinese food while being healthy and keeping you full through the day. For a meat-free option, just saute up your favorite veggies in the teriyaki sauce!
One great lunch you can prep for the week is mason jar meals. Salad jars are so simple to create with tons of variations, easy to transport, and so very good for you.
