Sometimes, eating healthy lunches is really hard to do when you’re running around doing errands or if you are at work (especially if your co-workers love going out to eat every day!). But if you are looking for ways to eat healthier while on the go, no matter what life throws at you, check out these helpful tips.
Get Healthy Foods Delivered to You
You can’t always be expected to pack or remember a lunch, so find five good, local places that do deliver healthy lunches. These will be your “in a pinch” lunch places that can make sure you have a healthy lunch at your desk when you need it. You can also get a few menus from other restaurants you frequent and have the healthy options already mapped out, in case you find yourself at a place last minute. Planning ahead will cut down on the temptation to grab that really fattening lunch.
Make Freezer Meals
One of the latest trends in food is the freezer meal. These are also great for lunch! Take some time on Sunday and make some freezer meals for the week. Grab them on your way out the door and allow them to thaw slowly in your lunchbox. Heat them as needed and enjoy a meal that you know is healthy, fresh and delicious.
Make Cold Lunches
One of the hardest parts about eating healthy is that food you pack may need to be heated. Pack foods that can be eaten cold, too, so that you don’t ever have to worry about not having a way to heat the foods. Yogurts, cheeses, some pasta dishes, fruits, and vegetables can all be diced, cut, peeled, and packed in different containers to make them easy to devour while running from place to place.
