When everyone else at your job is spending lots of money on unhealthy take-out at lunch, you can be the one who's doing it right by bringing your lunch from home. It's healthy, it's easy, it's fast, and it's inexpensive. It's perfect!
Now, the challenge is just to figure out what to bring! Fortunately, we've got you covered.
We recommend fixing your work lunch the night before because it makes mornings much easier. Here are healthy ideas you can make the night before for a scrumptious lunch the following day.
Tuna Salad Sandwich
Perhaps the people you share the kitchen with at work won't appreciate this, but your body sure well! Tuna is super healthy, full of protein, and delicious for a satisfying lunch. We recommend mixing tuna in water (rinsed) with relish, chopped onions, chopped celery, and chopped bell peppers of various colors. You can even add some freshly chopped radish for some kick. Throw in a bit of salt and pepper along with some mayonnaise, and slap that salad onto two pieces of bread for a delicious sandwich you'll be looking forward to all day.
Grilled Chicken Wraps
You always want to pack some protein into your daily lunch. It will keep you going through the afternoon when you would otherwise be relying on caffeine. One of the best forms of animal protein is chicken breast because it’s lean, delicious, and extremely versatile. You can cook up three chicken breasts at a time and use the meat for your lunch, dinner, and even for a snack.
For your grilled chicken wrap lunch, you’ll want to take a flour tortilla, add some strips of cooked chicken breast and some vegetables (romaine lettuce, peppers, red onions, cucumbers, tomato), put in a sauce of some kind (hummus, ranch dip, guacamole, mustard, spicy mayo), and finish everything off with a few slices of your favorite cheese (cheddar, provolone, pepper Jack).
