A friend of mind posted on Facebook the other day asking for healthy lunch suggestions. I too am usually wracking my brain with what to make for lunch, because I can never figure out what I want. So, this inspired me to come up with a list of healthy and easy lunch options you can take with you on the go. I’ve scoured my favorite food websites for healthy, quick, and mostly cheap lunches that will hopefully make your life much easier, and tastier.
Here it is…
Pasta, Tuna (or chicken), and Roasted Pepper Salad
Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque
Curried Red Lentil Soup
Turkey, Corn, and Sun-Dried Tomato Wrap
Couscous Salad With Chickpeas and Tomatoes
Little Italy Chicken Pitas With Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette
Peanut Chicken Soba Noodle Salad
And finally, a few tips:
- When making dinner, cook a little extra to take with you the next day.
- Always have healthy staples on hand, such as fresh veggies, cut up fruit, whole-grain bread, turkey slices, light cheeses, and a variety of condiments. This way you won’t find yourself in a bind in the morning.
- Decide the night before what you’re going to make for lunch the next day, so that you don’t end up in a last-minute rush. Prep ahead if you can.
- Bring healthy snacks with you as well for the inevitable 4:00 slump.
