Those of us who are employed at a steady 9-5 understand the struggle “what do I eat for lunch every day?”
Unfortunately, we are typically falling victim to the easy, ready-made meals that we can grab at Target, or a quick Italian sub from the deli down the road. We stick to whats around the office.
Well, it’s time to throw off the shackles of lunch time quick stops and embrace the life of healthy, meal prepped goodness.
Let’s take out all the trans-fats, preservatives, additives, GMO’s, empty calories, and high bad carb counts and replace it with fresh vegetables, good carbs, and high levels of protein and fiber.
Here is an easy lunchtime meal tat will leave you energized for the rest of the day.
TUNA AND EGG SALAD
Low-Sodium White Albacore Tuna
1 tbsp of Low-Fat Mayonnaise
Sriracha Hot Sauce (if you like spicy)
First, hard boil your eggs with our fool-proof method: Place your 2 eggs in a small boiling pot, fill it with water so that is JUST covers the eggs. Place on a burner uncovered and bring to a boil. As soon as the pot comes to a boil, remove from heat and cover for 10-12minutes. Scoop out eggs and place in a bowl of cold tap water. Drain and set aside to cool.
Open the can of tuna and drain the excess water. Chop up your celery into small pieces. In a bowl, place the tuna, celery bits, mayo, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Peel the hardboiled eggs and dice them. Add the eggs to the rest of the ingredients. Mix with a fork until properly incorporated. Place on your bread of choice or eat as is for a delicious meal. Enjoy!
This is a high protein and healthy-fats lunch that will fill you up. Make a bunch at once and save in portions to bring to work or to snack on during the weekend.
