Looking for a lunch that boosts both energy while also complementing your current diet and workouts? You need a good mix of carbs, protein, and fats. Here’s 4 simple, yet healthy, lunch ideas to work into your lunch routine.
Lunch #1: Burrito Power!
Grab two whole wheat tortillas. Add some black beans and some ground turkey. Top with chopped tomato, a slice of avocado, and some shredded lettuce.
Lunch #2: Protein Packed Sandwich
Rather than loading up on bread, instead, grab a whole wheat pita. Stuff it with baby greens, sliced turkey, a slice of avocado, and some Dijon mustard.
Lunch #3: High Protein Salad
Mix two cups of greens (like baby greens or baby spinach), 1 ½ cups of garbanzo beans, ¼ cup of chopped walnuts, and a sliced apple in a container. Drizzle with red wine vinegar.
Lunch #4: Tuna and Flatbread
Drain a can of white tuna, add sliced cucumber, chopped tomato, celery, and bell pepper – and mix into the tuna. Spread over whole grain flatbread.
