Time to get the most from that precious lunchtime hour with yummy healthy dishes! When it comes to what you eat in that hour of need it can be easier to opt for that sandwich you made that morning or going out for lunch everyday.
Going out for lunch is always nice, but it should be a treat. As for those sandwiches, don’t get me wrong, it’s much easier than getting up at 5am and making yourself a full gourmet lunch. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
The key to a delicious, nutritious lunch is all prep. Making your lunch the night before work not only means you’ve got a yummy lunch waiting for you come 1pm, but it also gives you an extra 30 minutes in bed, saves you money AND it helps you carry on with the rest of your day.
A good combination of carbs (nice carbs), proteins and vitamins you can kick feeling sluggish, improve your energy and improve you diet all at the same time! You don’t need a complex array of various-shaped lunchboxes or go all Pinterest and gather Mason jars, just a simple lunchbox, ingredients and cooking stuff is all you need.
Starting any new diet can be a bit confusing right? We’ve all found ourselves wandering from aisle to aisle in search of a certain kind of vegetable we’ve never heard off. Attempting an all vegan, gluten-free, no sugar diet. Here at Meditation Relax Club we believe the best diet is full of healthy, yet attainable, dishes.
So let’s take it easy. Here’s ‘5 Healthy Lunch Ideas for the Working Week’. Enjoy!
Monday: Salmon, Baby Potatoes & Green Beans
Omega 3, slow-releasing energy and an abundance of vitamins. That’s what I see when I look at this plate. This dish will literally take 30 minutes to make the night before. You could even make twice the amount and eat one for dinner. Yummy and so good for you.
Tuesday: Sweet Potato Pomegranate Salad
It is me or sweet potato is the best vegetable to ever grace the planet? I love it. It’s not only super sweet, perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth, but it’s also jammed-packed full of goodness. It’s also a flu fight food that boosts your immune system. The pomegranate adds a certain BOOM factor and the cheese is just yummy.
Wednesday: Rainbow Peanut Bowl
This dish is perfect for anyone who only has five minutes to make lunch. It’s simple. It’s quick. Most importantly, it’s nutritious (and delicious, no doubt about that). I love the contrast of flavours between the noodles, peppers and nuts. I highly recommend this to anyone!
Thursday: Chorizo & Spinach Salad
Spice up your life… with chorizo. The spicier the better in my opinion! But you can find the spanish sausage in different flavours and spice levels. This dish is packed with greens which will keep you going, even through Thursday afternoon when Friday seems so close, yet so far away.
Friday: Sweet Potato burrito bowl with Black Bean & Avacado
Because Friday’s are as awesome as sweet potatoes! This dish you guys, it’s just amazing. It can be a little filling, but you can pretty much keep the leftovers for a snack later in the day!
