Eating out can be a quick and easy lunchtime solution during busy workdays, but that convenience comes as a cost. Many fast food options are low in nutrients and high in empty calories. Luckily, a little planning goes a long way, and you don’t need to spend a lot of extra time planning and packing healthy lunches for work.
A salad or sandwich can be prepared in just a few minutes the night before. When preparing a salad, be sure to pack the dressing separately so the lettuce doesn’t get soggy! To make a healthy and filling sandwich, use hearty whole grain bread, and focus on combining a variety of vegetables with lean protein. And don’t forget to bring a snack, such as an apple, in case you become hungry later.
