Do you meal prep?
After a little Pinterest inspo, I set myself up to finally meal prep a few grab and go lunches on the weekend. I stuck to a pretty simple recipe and this is great starting off point for beginners. Here’s what made it:
Roasted Sweet Potatoes – I cut up a sweet potato into cubes and roasted them in the oven with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and a bit of dried thyme.
Hard Boiled Eggs – While they sweet potatoes were baking, I made a couple hard boiled eggs. In the end, I ended up making more because just one egg wasn’t filling enough for me. I like to cut mine in half, sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
Steamed Broccoli – Lastly, I steamed up a bag of pre-cut organic broccoli and added them to my meal prep bowl. (more…)
In my quest to find more healthy lunch ideas, I have rounded-up a few of my favourites that you can whip up quickly or travels well if you are looking for lunch ideas for work.
A great trick is to double the recipe and make two days worth – as long you don’t mind repeats. It saves you a lot of thinking and stress of having to pack a lunch every single night.
Here are 7 Healthy Lunch Ideas:
Roasted Carrot + Spinach Quinoa Bowl – I could eat this hot or cold. Just roast up a huge batch of vegetables at the start of the week and divide into containers. Add a piece of grilled or rotisserie chicken on top for added protein for a filling and healthy lunch idea.
Vegetable Quiche + Salad – I make 2 quiches at a time. One to eat during the week and one for the freezer for future use. It’s great for breakfast or lunch, just re-heat in the microwave at work and pack a side green salad. (more…)
