While breakfast has always been considered the most important meal of the day, remember that lunch is also essential! The quality of your lunch can make or break your productivity at work. Making the time and effort to prepare healthy, protein-filled lunches can keep energy levels high and help you stay focused, so you don’t experience the midday slump!
Check out these three energy-packed lunch options that will keep you healthy and productive all week:
Egg Salad and Veggie Box
If you want to get your protein and veggies all in one meal, this is the lunch for you! For this lunch, you can choose as many of your favorite raw veggies as you’d like, such as carrots, broccoli, celery, peppers and radishes. You can then pair your raw veggies with a small portion of egg salad which provides just the right amount of protein, along with some whole grain crackers for dipping. And, if you have a sweet tooth, don’t worry! Dried fruits and a piece of dark chocolate make for the perfect small treat to accompany this nutritious lunch.
Avocado Chicken Salad Bento
Are you someone who enjoys a lot of variety in your lunch? If so, this option may become your favorite go-to lunch. Avocado with a helping of chicken salad is a great way to get both your protein and healthy fats. You can pair this lunch with almost any side, such as raw veggies or a piece of fruit. If you like to crunch on something, throw in a handful of walnuts or almonds which are great at combatting stress levels!
There’s nothing quite like the deliciousness of Mediterranean flavors to give your afternoon a lift! A Mediterranean bowl filled with whole grain pita with hummus, olives, feta, cucumbers and tomatoes will give you the protein and fiber you need to power through the rest of your day. And, if you’re really into spices, consider including a side of tahini sauce or chili garlic sauce!
There you have it – three tasty, yet healthy energy-packed lunches for your workweek. The only thing left to do is start meal prepping!
