How to Eat a Healthy Lunch at Work

How to Eat a Healthy Lunch at Work

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!

Utilizing Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut & Seed Butters is a great way to capture all these ideas, creating a healthy and unique lunch.  Here are some healthy lunch combinations using your favorite Betsy’s Best Gourmet Peanut Butter, Seed Butter, Almond Butter or Cashew Butter.

Three Ways To Eat A Healthy Lunch At Work:

Dip It– Fruit and even veggies go great with gourmet nut and seed butters.  This is a great way to increase your veggie and fruit intake while adding protein and fiber to each bite.  You could even make a fruit or hummus dip using Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters!

Spread It– Sure a PB&J is one way to spread your butter, but have you ever thought of spreading it on a rice cake, a whole grain wrap, or even a collard green leaf?

Dress it Up– Garnish a salad with a dressing made from Betsy’s Best!  Make is sweet with the Seed Butter, Peanut Butter or Almond Butter with cinnamon, or savory with the Cashew Cardamom Butter.  The spice adds a zing to those boring greens!

Take it easy the next time you’re trying to decide on your work lunch options. We don’t have a lot of time between variable obligations and often do not have a long lunch break either. Consider packing your healthy lunch with you to take to work so you can save money, save time, and have it all ready to eat for you at the workplace. Keep your options healthy with the help of Betsy’s Best, and you’re going to start loving your healthy lunches at work!
