Hi, everyone! It’s Kat from Crunchy Kat! I create simple recipes and offer lots of tips and tricks for how to stay healthy in the midst of a busy life. I also love talking about healthier products to swap in for some of your favorite items, including beauty products!

I’m really glad I could be here today with Em, and with you, sharing some quick lunch ideas for when you’re on the go.

Perhaps you’ve seen some of our #mealsnmunchies posts on Instagram. Em and I have been sharing lunch and snack ideas all week long! You can see more on our Instagram accounts, @getwellwithem and @crunchy.kat.

When it comes to a quick lunch, my first tip is to make extra food for dinner the night before and pack it up to take with you the next day. I mean, how easy is that?!

But, if that doesn’t work for you, here are some other quick lunch ideas:

  1. Egg/tuna/chicken salad. I use my favorite mayo and add in some protein. Add salt to taste and some other spices if you’re feeling adventurous!quick lunch ideas
  2. Hardboiled eggs with salt and pepper
  3. Lettuce wraps with any of the above! Or chopped veggies
  4. Roasted vegetable bowl with sweet potatoes, zucchini, asparagus, and carrots, topped with a tahini sauce or hummusquick lunch
  5. A salad with an assortment of veggies (like this one I posted on Monday)
  6. A smoothie or smoothie bowl (like this one Em posted this week)
  7. Collard wraps with meat or chopped veggies (try using hummus as your “sauce”)
  8. Rice bowl with shredded chicken or pork and avocado, topped with salsa.quick lunch  
  9. Greek pasta salad with chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, olive oil, and a touch of red wine vinegarquick lunch
  10. Apple sandwiches with almond butter and granola
  11. (BONUS!) A quinoa bowl with a lemon dressing and roasted chicken

These are just a few ideas to get you started! I also almost always take some fruit and an energy bar with me each day as well. I never want to be hungry!
