Healthy food doesn't make its way into the workplace very often. It is so easy for you to simply pick up a burger and soda during your lunch break and try to forget about all the junk you are ingesting. This might be okay every once in a while. But if you get in the habit of eating fast food every single day, you are bound to regret it later. On the other hand, if you commit to eating healthy food on a daily basis, you will begin to reap the benefits immediately. Here are ten great ideas for healthy lunches that you can bring to work.
1. Apple Walnut Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. You can never go wrong with salad. Especially a salad that will satisfy your stomach while keeping you trim and energetic! You may have a bias against salads, be we would definitely encourage you to try this one out.
2. Greek Chicken Bowl. It's time to add some yum into healthy food! Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring. You can let your food take you all around the world! This recipe is definitely a keeper.
3. Mediterranean Pasta Salad. Talk about adventurous foods! This is one dish that is super easy to throw together (and keeps well in the fridge), but is absolutely delicious. Feel free experimenting with the recipe to come up with a combination that is all your own.
4. Turkey and Tomato Panini. Add a touch of class to your work lunches with a panini every now and then. This is a very satisfying and yet healthy option. And the best part is that it is guilt free!
