As a busy professional, you know how hard it can be to squeeze in a nutritious lunch break. With so many of us on the go, reaching for fast, pre-packaged options that are convenient but not necessarily good for our health can be tempting. But plenty of healthy and delicious lunch options can easily be taken on the go. Here are some ideas for creating healthy lunches you can take wherever your busy life leads you.
Mason Jar Salads
Mason jar salads are a great way to prep and prepare a healthy lunch when needed. All you need is a mason jar and some fresh ingredients. Start by packing your salad in layers—dressing at the bottom, followed by hardier vegetables such as carrots or broccoli florets, then add protein such as chicken or beans, followed by greens. When you're ready to eat it, turn the jar over into a bowl and enjoy.
Making your Boxes own protein boxes for lunch on the go is an easy and delicious way to ensure you get plenty of nutrition while out of the home. With a few simple ingredients, you can create a balanced meal full of protein to fuel you through the day. The sky's the limit regarding what type of food you want in your box - get creative and add various fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, hummus, or other nutritious items. Not only will these boxes taste great, but they can be prepared in advance, so all that's left to do is grab and go.
Start by choosing your favorite type of wrap. Then fill them with whatever ingredients you like—lean proteins such as turkey or grilled chicken breast slices; lots of veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers; and tasty cheeses like feta or goat cheese. You can also add hummus for extra flavor and texture.
Sushi bowls are another great option for people on the go who want something healthy but only have a little time to prepare meals. All you need is cooked sushi-grade fish (or tofu if preferred) cut into cubes or strips; cooked brown rice; some nori sheets cut into strips; avocado slices; edamame beans; sesame seeds; and soy sauce or tamari for added flavor. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy.
Eating healthy doesn't have to be complicated when you're always on the go. With these quick and easy options, you can quickly have a delicious lunch ready. Mason jar salads, wraps filled with nutritious ingredients, and sushi bowls are ways to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs even when your schedule won't allow ample meal prep time.
