Easy Lunch Options?

  • I'm good at coming up with quick/easy/healthy breakfasts and dinners, but lunch always stumps me. I've fallen back on good ol' pb & j because it's easy to make and keep around till lunchtime, but it's a little boring. Sometimes I end up at lunch not in the mood for what I've brought with me, and then that's just a waste. Any good ideas?

    I'll do about 3 cups of spinach, an ounce or two of feta cheese, then top it with one of those Starkist Zesty Lemon Tuna packs, or their salmon pack, and a low cal dressing. If I'm going out, I'll do Chick Fil A grilled chicken sandwich wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun.

    For a quick option, I'll do a smoothie.

    If you have a microwave you could always try a nice soup. Soup comes in lots of varieties. They can be quick easy and healthy.

      Good idea, but you have to watch out for high sodium content in canned soups.

    StarKist makes a tuna lunch that I get on sale for about a $1.25 they store well and come in different flavors. I am also a fan of dinner left overs. For me portion control is the key.

    My current lunch favorite are frozen burritos. Threre is a line from Evol Foods that are delicious and another brand I like is Annies. My grocery store keeps these in the organic frozen foods section. You just throw them in the microwave and lunch is done!
