Many people tend to pack leftovers or something unhealthy and quick as an office lunch. It’s understandable considering you may be busy in the morning but always remember your health comes first. So why not prepare something hearty and exciting so you’ll always have something to look forward to at work. Here are some healthy ingredients that’ll make your office lunches way more exciting:
Eggs can be cooked in many different ways and added to almost any dish to make it more interesting. Not only is it an excellent source of protein, but it can make every dish taste better. You can prepare eggs at the beginning of the week by boiling a few to add to your lunch as a side dish or fry some to add to a sandwich.
Rice can be very filling and is great with vegetables or even last night’s leftovers. You can quickly make yourself some fried rice or make plain white rice with a side dish.
Canned chickpeas are always great to have in your kitchen. You can blend them to make hummus or make a quick chickpea and egg salad.
If you don’t have time in the morning and want to add some flavor to last night’s leftovers, add soy sauce! You can add it to almost anything to make it more flavorful.
Not only is olive oil great for cooking, it’s also amazing when you add it to salads or even when you mix it with greek yogurt for a dip.
Greek Yogurt can be eaten with honey and granola for a quick breakfast or even as a savory snack with chickpeas or olive oil. It can also be used as a healthy mayonnaise alternative and mixed with many other ingredients to add more flavor.
