Through the years of working 1-on-1 with nutrition clients, I have noticed that most struggle to find something healthy and quick to eat for lunch. In fact, lunch can be one of the most difficult meals of the day since this is the meal that most of us must eat while we’re at work. Time is usually limited to 30 minutes or an hour at most, so this usually limits choices to either (a) purchasing food available at the office cafeteria or vending machine, (b) frequenting a nearby fast-food restaurant, (c) eating a sack lunch from home, or (d) skipping lunch altogether and arriving home totally famished. The healthiest option is obviously option c, but this usually requires menu planning, food shopping, time, and some way to keep meals fresh overnight and into the morning. It can be a real chore when life gets hectic. Most people have better things to do than think about what they’re going to eat next week.
There are a few time-saving, healthy lunch “hacks” that you can do to always have healthy meals queued up for lunches during the workweek without going bonkers. Here’s what I recommend:
1. Batch Cooking: On Saturdays or Sundays, prepare 5 servings of proteins, 5 starches, and at least 10 servings of veggies. Divide portions into these meal prep containers and keep in the freezer until you need them.
2. Plant-based meal delivery: If you crave fresh, colorful salads and exotic menu items that change weekly so you never get bored, you should check out this plant-based meal delivery. All meals are free of gluten, grains, refined flours, GMOs, and pesticides too, of course.
3. Ambronite: For the hard-charging athlete or busy executive who needs to be “on” all day, with little time to deal with being hungry from not eating or sleepy from eating too much, you need Ambronite. This is basically a drinkable supermeal that is made with 18 superfoods from around the world and quenches hunger for 5 hours. It’s full of protein and fiber to keep you feeling satiated, and no added sugars so you won’t crash in the mid-afternoon. If you want more energy throughout the day, just try this stuff.
4. Paleo Meal Delivery: If homemade grain-free and gluten-free chicken pot pie, grass-fed beef chili, brussels sprouts with bacon, and spaghetti squash & meatballs are more your style, you must experience this paleo meal delivery. If you’re under age 65, this might be the best food you’ve ever eaten. It’s literally like having a great-grandmother in your kitchen, lovingly spending all morning in the kitchen cooking your lunch.
