Lunch Ideas

Let’s talk about lunch…

The meal that so many of us eat outside the home…whether it be at Wendy’s, Panera, McDonald’s, the local pub or cafe, school/work cafeteria, etc. Even ordering the healthiest option on the menu isn’t always the best option compared to what we could pack and bring from home! Take 5-10 minutes the night before to put a lunch together to bring with you to work the next day. If you’re stuck on what to pack, aim for a protein, carbohydrate, and vegetable (or fruit) source.

Here are some fun and easy options to get you started!
