Go-to lunch recipes

My schedule is usually pretty crazy, so one way I keep on track with nutrition is making my lunches ahead of time.  Here are two of my favorite ones and they are super easy.

I call this one Chicken Slaw.  It’s kind of a cole-slaw but not really a chicken salad.  I got this one off of a paleo recipe site (that I now can’t find, but will update if I do).

4 diced chicken breasts

1 jar sun dried tomatoes

1 diced apple

1/2 bag of sliced almonds

1/2 head of shredded green or purple cabbage

olive oil, black pepper, and white balsamic vinegar to taste

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy.

Anna’s update: I use a rotisserie chicken from Sam’s club (can get them for $4) and just shred up the meat.  I also use broccoli slaw instead of cabbage.  I buy a box at Kroger and throw in the entire container.  

Grown up egg salad

This is one recipe that I made up based on foods I like.

1 avocado, cubed

1 hard boiled egg, sliced

2 cups baby spinach

1 tomato, cubed (or used smaller cherry tomatoes)

1 juice of a lemon

2-3 TBl mayonnaise

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy.  I mix this up minus the spinach in the morning before work and it transports well.  Something else I do is bring all the ingredients with me to work and quickly throw it together at lunch so it’s really fresh.

 

I really like my food to be colorful and tasty so that I want to eat healthy and good for me food.

I find if I pack plenty of options that are good for me then I want to make good choices.  So happy eating to you all!!
