Tips for Healthy, Energy Boosting Lunches
Healthy lunches are important for maintaining your overall health, and can also help you get through the rest of the day by giving you an extra boost of energy. Jane Clauss talks to Kendra Peterson from Drizzle Kitchen about tips for meal planning healthy lunches for the work week.
1- Healthy Lunches
In the age of working from home, it can be easy to just grab a bag of chips or whatever is in the fridge for lunch. A healthy lunch will be more nourishing and will help both physical and mental health. It will give you the energy boost that is needed to get through the rest of the workday.
Meal planning is a great way to plan out healthy meals for the week. Plan your meals out before your trip to the grocery to eliminate more trips to the store throughout the week. Pick out foods that can be used in different ways, like getting the base of a salad but picking both chicken and salmon to switch out. This will prevent getting bored of eating the same meal every day.
3-Grab and go lunch options
Kendra shows a great grab and go meal option for lunches by making mason jar avocado chicken salad. This meal gives a great afternoon energy boost! It has a healthy fat, protein, and fiber to sustain energy. Mason jar salads are easy to make multiple of in a short amount of time making meal prep easy.
These tips are great to follow in order to boost energy throughout the workday. Whether you are working from home or at the office, it can sometimes be easier to just grab a bag of chips for lunch. These healthier options will help boost your energy throughout the day.
