Healthy Lunch Ideas

For me, my ability to stay healthy during the week is directly proportional to putting in effort to prepare myself for the week. This usually happens on Sundays – Sunday Preparation – But sometimes it’s Monday after work or even Saturday. And it doesn’t have to mean taking tons of time and spending a fortune at Whole Foods, it just means doing a little planning.

Over the years I’ve adjusted my diet, tried different ways of eating, and shifted my time tables, all with the goal of finding a way of eating that works best for me. That gives me energy, makes my body feel good, and results in better sleeping patterns.

A key part of those habits are having a healthy lunch that’s nutritious and filing, without leaving me lethargic. Lunch is my largest meal of the deal and I always try to cram as much nutrient-dense, vitamin-packed produce into it as possible. Here are a few of my favorite healthy lunches for long days at the office:

Crackling Cauliflower Vegan Gluten-Free Paleo San Francisco Fashion Food Fitness Lifestyle Travel Blogger Recipe

Protein Smoothies – Spinach or kale, raw, vegan, gluten-free protein powder, lemon, ginger, sweet potato, and cinnamon is my go-to combination.

Stir Fry – A veggie & protein filled stir fry over brown rice, quinoa, or even veggie pasta is a filling, but light and delicious choice.

Crackling Cauliflower – I’m a HUGE fan of cauliflower and this is one of my favorite dishes to make over and over again.

Energy Bites – These little gems are great for a number of reasons. Not only are they the perfect portable snack/dessert, they’re also easy to make & versatile. Just add whatever ingredients you have on hand!

Bonus – All of these are low-maintenance, easy to throw together meals. You can make them in advance and reheat or prep the smoothie and stick it in the freezer!

Do YOU have a favorite healthy lunch for busy days?
