Are you forced to eat unhealthy lunches because you don’t have time to cook? Do you eat the same thing every day? Here’s a recipe for quick and healthy lunches that you can mix and match!
Step 1. Cook a batch of Grains or Veggies (if paleo) for the week. Examples: sweet potatoes russet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, squash, brown rice, quinoa, basmati rice, brown rice pasta, or bulgur. Soak and cook your grains of choice.
Step 2. Make or even buy (gasp, don’t worry buying sauce is okay if it is natural, preferably organic and doesn’t contain sugar!) pesto, buffalo sauce, cilantro lime dressing, tomato basil sauce, olive oil lemon vinaigrette or peanut Thai dressing
Step 3. Cook proteins (organic when possible): Chicken, lamb, beef, bison, shrimp or tempeh.
Step 4. Store your food in glass mason jars or glass Tupperware. Either mix your food together in jars, layer them or store them separately for the week and just mix and match every morning!
