Healthy Lunch Box Ideas

I know its not healthy, but I eat at my desk…. with 4 jobs to juggle and all my content from the internet I love eating at my desk and I honestly hate buying lunch.

So I always bring my food from home…I have an excellent mother in law who concocts the most delicious dinners which helps with leftovers the next day but here are a few tips to upgrade your lunch the healthy way.

Fill out your lunchbox with the following:

  • Fruit – include fruit such as apples, grapes, plums and berries. Chopped fruit, fruit salad or dried fruit such as apricots, raisins and dates can be easily handled and eaten by children. A fruit smoothie is also a healthy option.
  • Vegetables – chopped vegetables such as carrot, celery and cucumber can be included with dips such as hummus to provide a nutritious snack. Cherry tomatoes, sliced peppers, baby corn and sugar snap peas are great for adding colour and are easy for young children to eat.
  • Desserts – fruit can be added to low-sugar jelly, or mixed in with natural yoghurt for a tasty dessert. Yoghurt drinks or small pots of custard or rice pudding can top up calcium intake and provide an alternative to more sugary or fatty options. If you like cakes and biscuits, try varieties such as hot-cross buns, scones and malt loaf. Include your favourite cake once in a while, but keep the portion small.
  • Variety is key to keeping lunchboxes appetising and appealing. Sandwich fillings can be packed with salad to add colour and nutrients, and accompanied by low-fat nutritious options such as lean meat, fish, egg and low-fat cheese.
  • Adding a treat every now and then is fine – try fun-size chocolate bars, snack-sized packets of biscuits and sweets to keep portions small and the calorie, fat and sugar content low.
  • Fruit and cereal bars are great for breakfast at the desk…
  • i mix a selection of pistachios, almonds and walnuts- my fave nuts- in a ziplock bag and snack on them throughout the day as Storebought mixes are expensive and odnt have the nuts i like
  • A colleague at work- Kamal Kaur- also makes her own dry fruit and nuts mixededition which helps her beat sugar lows…
  • or drink cups of green tea whenever you can…it increases your metabolism and burns fat

Have a happy healthy week….
