If you struggle and wonder how to eat a healthy lunch at work, you are not alone. Finding healthy lunch options from a local restaurant during a half hour lunch break can be nearly impossible. One thing many people are now trying to do is pack a healthy lunch themselves to save money, time and unnecessary congested decision making each day.

A healthy lunch option for work needs to accomplish at least three things.  First it should to be  easily packed, easily stored, and ready to eat after little to no prep work while at the office – aka quick and easy!  Second, it should consist of healthy choices to satisfy the afternoon hunger and give you the healthy boost and balance of energy you need in order to be at your best for the rest of the day.  Third and most important, it needs to be delicious and something you look forward to eating!
