6 Awesome Work Lunch Ideas
Grabbing a quick snack or a healthy lunch while working might seem like a hard thing to do especially when you may need to find foods that are good and healthy and quick to make. Staying healthy while working is a key element to a happier and more productive life for women who work in their own businesses or those that work long hours away from home. With these great snack and lunch ideas, you’ll be able to eat smarter, pack lighter and enjoy lunch and snack time a lot more throughout the work day.

6 Awesome Work Lunch Ideas

1. Mason Jar Salads

This is such a cute idea. Package your salad in a mason jar, the size of your choice, with a light dressing on the side in a small container. You can then tie the fork right to the side and slip it in your lunch bag with a drink and sides. You have a salad that was easy to prepare, put together and simple to transport without going bad before you have a chance to eat while at the office.

2. Yogurt on the Go

Yogurt is great for the body and you want to make sure you get your fill of it. This can be done by packaging yogurt with fruit on top. If you would like to add a little more flavor to it, make sure to add a baggy of granola to the mix. You can place your spoon with it and take it with you on the go. Healthy and easy!

3. Veggies for the Win

Cut up and baggy, or put in mason jars, a few different veggies of your choice. Carrot sticks, celery, and broccoli go great together. Prepare them for the week and stick them in the fridge. Eat them as a side with your lunch or choose to nibble on them throughout the work day. Veggies are not only healthy for you, but they are also a great way to keep your body fit and to help keep your skin looking great. This is also perfect for a boost of energy and to keep you full until lunch time rolls around. Consider a small side of ranch for dipping!

4. Chicken Caesar Wraps

These are delicious and healthy and go great whether you are eating at the office or just looking for a great meal to have after a great workout after work. You can purchase the tortilla shells, add Caesar dressing, lettuce, tomato, chicken, and cheese together. Roll it up, cut it in half and package it up. Pair with some of your favorite sides. Not only is this refreshing, but it is super simple to throw together and enjoy the next day.

5. Smoothies for Snacks

Prepare smoothie mix and refrigerate it. This will last you a few days. You can place the smoothies in jars and sip at your leisure at work. It is a great way to boost your performance since you will not be so sluggish from not having anything in your system. You can also add a scoop or two of protein powder for an added boost! Don’t forget the chia seeds!

6. Leftovers for Lunch

If you made a delicious dinner the night before, think about packing it for the next day’s lunch. You can then enjoy something not so “lunch” like but flare it up by adding different sides or making it into something different. If you had roast chicken, make a sandwich. If you had fish, make it into a salad. Chicken and rice is always great to reheat at lunchtime and you can even toss in some steamed broccoli to make it even healthier. You can choose from endless possibilities and still enjoy dinner the next day for your lunch. Not to mention it’s a much healthier option than going out and hitting up that fast food place.
