Eating on the go can be hard as there aren’t always the best options around. So packing yourself one of these nutritious lunches will fuel you for your day and also save you money too. These are 3 of my favs that I have been loving lately and each are packed with so much flavour.
For all my meals I try to include protein, healthy fats and fiber. This combo not only allows your blood sugar to stay stable and prevent you from getting hangry but it also nourishes your gut and helps maintain or achieve a healthy weight.
Lemon Mint Mediterranean Bowl
- 1 1/2 cups butter lettuce
- 1/4 cup cucumber
- 1/4 cup grape tomatoes
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 lemon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 oz protein (I used turkey meatballs)
Combine everything except the olive oil into a glass container.
Use a small glass bottle, I love reusing ginger shot bottle, to carry the olive oil.
When ready to eat squeeze the lemon on top and add the olive oil.
Egg Roll In A Bowl
This egg roll in a bowl is the perfect quick meal that you can prep in advance. It is loaded with veggies and because it is sauteed it doesn’t wilt. You can customize the protein to any you like and even add some of your extra favorite veggies!

Add in slaw mix, coconut aminos and protein of choice and saute until warm and slaw is tender.
