Affordable, Good for You Lunch Ideas

It’s important that we keep lunch options available that are easy to prepare as well as healthy to consume. Lunch is the perfect time to pack some more nutrition into your diet, particularly if you don’t snack. The ideas below are per person.

  • 1 nut butter and banana sandwich.

  • 1 nut butter and pickle sandwich (my best friend loves these with peanut butter, but nuts are a legume so I try not to eat them often!).

  • 1 salad of lettuce, shredded cabbage and carrots, and diced tomato with a homemade vinaigrette. This can be topped with ¼ cup diced chicken, turkey, or ham, or a hard boiled egg.

  • 1 bowl of watermelon (when on sale) mixed with ½ cup of coconut yogurt or coconut cream.

  • 1 homemade paleo tortilla topped with leftover chicken or turkey, shredded cabbage, and diced tomato. Warm and enjoy.
