Almost every day, you can whip up a healthy breakfast and a nutritious dinner, even if you have a slow cooker going all day you can make your evening meal a hearty one. So how can you ensure your lunches are the case? And what are your options? You can batch cook and bring your own lunches as standard - it’s the best option if you want to ensure that you are eating really well! Whether you are whipping up Vietnamese pho from Nourished Kitchen or you are putting on a large portion of chili ready to be frozen, your lunches should make you feel full and nourished all at once. Below, we’ve got some quick and healthy lunch ideas that’ll ensure you are well fed while you’re at work.

  1. Embrace veggies. You don't have to be a vegetarian to really enjoy your veggies, and vegetables don't have to be boring, either. You can enjoy vegetables in a myriad of ways, from a quinoa veggie bowl with a tahini dressing to a delicious vegetable soup. While you’re working, you want to be able to think straight and a big part of that will be in what you eat to get you through the day. If you’re eating foods that make you feel sluggish, you’re going to find it much harder to concentrate. 

  2. Bake a batch of muffins. While the muffins at the coffee shops are delicious, we’re talking savory muffins over sweet. Veggie muffins or mini frittatas are the perfect option for work as they’re easy to grab and can be eaten with a hearty side salad. You can even bring that veggie soup you made and use the soup as a dip! Your muffin making skills will show off a little of what you can do and you’ll feel fuller for longer in the office as a result. 

  3. Try out loaded potatoes. Slicing up pre baked sweet potatoes and loading them up with your choice of toppings is a good way to go if you want something healthy and filling. Adding fresh salsa, refried beans and greens will ensure that you get the fulfilling meal that you’re looking for - and not a burger in sight!

  4. Explore your wrap options. Wraps don't have to be all carb-y and boring. You can do so much with wraps and you can use large green lettuce leaves if you want something more fulfilling than a regular wrap. Veggies with fish or eggs, meats in strips with cheeses and even meatball wraps all work for you.
