When you bring your lunch to work, pack tasty, nutritious meals that give you a midday energy boost. Many people pack way too little food and beverages when they bring their lunch to work. Make it a solid meal with plenty of veggies, fruit, whole grains, and protein along with a healthy mid-afternoon snack that can tide you over until dinner.
To make sure your lunch is balanced, include lean protein like beans or chicken, along with a salad that includes 2-3 types of greens and veggies. Top it off with some nuts, avocado or low-fat cheese, and a light dressing. You will be more likely to stay motivated to pack a lunch if you choose foods that you look forward to eating. Here are some simple ways to add variety to your daily lunches.
