3 Healthy Lunch Ideas (That are easy to take to school/work!)

Hello!

Today I am sharing with you my top three lunches. All three are super healthy and simple to make. There is one meat option, one vegan option, and one that would be easy to make either way based on your preference.

Lunch #1 Hummus

I really like Sabra hummus. It tastes good and there are a lot of flavors. My favorite way to eat hummus is with carrots but its not very filling so I also pack some pita chips to eat with it too. You can buy the individual packs of hummus or a big tub and portion them out.

Lunch #2 Barbecue Chicken Salad

This is one of the tastiest salads I have ever eaten. I like to prep the chicken on Saturday or Sunday so that it is easy to throw together on the days that I want it. I cook a few chicken breasts or tenders in the oven with some barbecue sauce (my favorite is the Stubb’s Spicy) until they are just done and not dry. Then I cut them up into bite-size pieces and they are easy to throw onto a salad. For the salad I mix romaine and spinach or whatever my family has on hand with some carrots, coleslaw mix, and whatever other veggies are in the fridge. I top it with the chicken and then drizzle some barbecue sauce and ranch dressing over everything.

Lunch #3 Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chicken salad is so tasy. You can find a recipe just about anywhere. My favorite has craisins and granny smith apples in it. I like to eat it with crackers or tortilla chips, or on a sandwich. I prefer to toast my bread for this so when I pack this lunch I keep the bread and the chicken salad separate until I am ready to eat. Sometimes I like to add some romaine lettuce to add crunch.

I hope you found some inspiration for your own lunches from these ideas!

Have a great day!
