Do You Have ‘Lunch Pride’?

Lunch at the office a little bland? It’s time to broaden your food horizons. We’ve come up with five tasty, nutritious, and easy-to-prepare options. Plus they’re totally customisable. There’s only one rule: keep it healthy.

  • Hard boiled eggs. This one is a no-brainer. You can get as creative as you like with boiled eggs as a base. Boil them at home while you’re getting ready for work or uni. You could also fry up some bacon for a sandwich, wrap, or salad.
  • Salad in a jar. Buy a few mason jars and get creative. You can keep things simple or go all-out, it’s up to you. Just remember to keep it healthy. Grilled chicken, cheese or fish. Green beans and peas. Rice, noodles, pulses, quinoa, couscous. Try different variations. Tip: Start with the dressing at the bottom of the jar, or, if you prefer, keep it separate and dress the salad right before you eat. This is also a great way to meal prep for the week.
  • Lettuce wrap. Yup. You can still enjoy wraps minus the carbs. Choose lettuce leaves that will be able to hold a fair amount of filling without falling apart or getting messy. Butter lettuce is a good option. You can keep things as simple as you like. Chicken, tuna, salmon, ham, quinoa, lentils, eggs, you name it. Find something you love. That’s the main thing.
  • Tuna or chicken stuffed peppers. Simple. Mix tuna or chicken with celery, sweetcorn, cheese, and whatever else you like – as long as it’s healthy – and divide the mixture into hollowed-out bell pepper halves. Bake them for a few minutes and you’re good to go.
  • Leftovers. Cooking quick dinners that make great lunches the next day is the way to go. Steak for dinner? How about creating a delicious steak salad the next day? Just buy your greens and you’re done. Remember, the point is to keep things simple and stress-free.

If you have to get takeout, make sure you order BEFORE you get hungry. That’ll make it easier to choose the healthy, portion-controlled option.
