Most days of the week I don’t have the luxury of enjoying lunch at home. I’m usually at work, but occasionally I’ll have to eat lunch at work. Instead of eating out everyday, I opt to pack my lunch – often using up leftovers, but mostly ensuring that what I’m eating is healthy and as little processed as possible.
Gather your ingredients: bread with hummus and mustard, fresh basil, sliced red onion, cucumber slices, turkey, some grapes, a hunk of brie and some butternut squash soup.
Assemble and pack up. I like to make sure I’ve got plenty of fruits, veggies and water, and to balance it out throw in protein (such as turkey, quinoa, edamame, tofu, etc.), some carbs (crackers or bread usually), and some fat (salad dressing, cheese, nuts, etc.).
Don’t forget dessert! A hunk of dark chocolate does the trick.
Do you prefer to pack your lunch or eat out?
