Healthy Lunch Ideas

Lunches Lately

Back in September, I wrote a quick little post that showed off a few of the lunches I’d been packing for myself lately. That little post has quickly become one of the most popular posts on my blog. Apparently people really like healthy lunch ideas! I had plans to share my lunches regularly, and I’m finally back with another installment!

You are probably thinking, “Um, but you work from home, why in the world do you pack lunches?” Well, I find that by packing my lunch and being more intentional with my food choices, I can stay on track with my healthy diet. In other words, when I don’t pack my lunch for work days, I end up eating a lunch of tortilla chips while I answer client emails. Lunch packing works for me!

The Tools

LunchBots

Before we get started, let me link you to my lunch containers and lunch-packing supplies. I like to pack bento-style lunches using stainless steel containers from LunchBots. I use these everyday and love them. Here are the standards I use each week:

  • LunchBots Cinco—This is my main, five-compartment lunch box. It isn’t completely water-tight, so I wouldn’t recommend it for tossing soup in a backpack, but it works beautifully for drier foods like what you see here. I love it!
  • LunchBots Dips—These little stainless steel dip containers are water-tight, and are perfect for storing dips, dressings, and sauces.
  • LunchBots Uno, Duo, and Trio—These containers are smaller than the Cinco (about half the size), and work perfectly to store lunches where you want a little more quantity than the smaller Cinco spaces provide.
  • Freshware Silicone Baking Cups—I use these to divide the sections in my Cinco. I use both the mini rectangles and the medium squares.

 The Lunches

  • Cheese and salsa quesadilla on whole wheat tortilla (eaten cold) with sour cream and cilantro
