It’s time for the kids to go back to school and for some adults, summer holiday’s are over too and we’re headed back to our busy work-lives. Instead of going out for lunch every day or eating unhealthy prepared food, here’s a great lunch you can make that’s healthy.
- Start your morning off with a banana with your morning coffee when you get into the office.
- Late-morning stop for a water break and snack on an apple – you’re more-likely to eat it if you pre-cut it.
- For lunch:
- mixed raw vegetables – carrots, celery, cucumber, tomatoes, green beans, snap peas… the options are endless! Just pre-cut them into bite-sized pieces.
- Hand-full of raw almonds
- For an afternoon pick-me-up, a low-fat granola bar and another glass of water.
This is a great lunch for busy people because everything is bite-size, portable and fast. So if you’re in your car, running between meetings, or on transit, you can still snack the day away.
Another great feature is that this lunch does not need to be refrigerated if you keep it in a theromo lunch bag. Bring along a stainless steel water bottle – perfectly acceptable to take to meetings to keep you hydrated.
Save even more-time during the week by pre-cutting all vegetables and fruit on Sunday evenings and store in air-tight containers in the fridge.
