Celebrate National Nutrition Month with 31 Days of Healthy Lunches!
It's hard enough to stay awake some afternoons, and that fast food lunch definitely doesn't help. Celebrate National Nutrition Month by vowing to bring healthier lunches with you to work (it doesn't have to be January to start a new resolution!).
This dish provides you with healthy greens, healthy fats, and healthy grains! What more could a health-consious luncher want? Need extra protein? Keep it vegan with some added tofu, or mix in some chicken or steak. Make ahead and bring to work with you.
Not going to lie to you, if you want pasta, spaghetti squash won't always cut it. But it IS delicious. And healthy. And pretty easy to prepare. Try this recipe or develop your own.
Chinese buffet? No thank you. The quinoa in this recipe offers up some great texture, whole grains, and lots o' protein.
Pull out that thermos and bring this to work with you for some afternoon comfort. The broccoli and beans will fill you right up, and the pepper and parmesan provide a nice flavor. Best part? This will have a drastically lower sodium content than any soup you'd get out of a can or at a restaurant without sacrificing the flavor.
