How do you choose healthy meals when you are out to lunch that won’t break the bank? One way to is to choose a restaurant that has lunch specials. Restaurants know that you are on your lunch break and you need something quickly, healthy and low cost. Also, choose half portions when going out to eat, to keep the calories under control. Lastly, always incorporate a vegetable in your lunch meal.
If going out to lunch is not an option for you, and you bring a lunch to work; is it better to do your own meal prep or someone to do it for you? Meal prepping is a great way to stay healthy and save money. Additionally, it gives you full control of accomplishing your nutrition goals. Planning your meals for the week is a vital part of meeting your health goals.
In order to meal prep, several hours are needed on a weekend day to pre-cook all ingredients, such as chicken, turkey, vegetables, brown rice, and pasta. A great way to store your meals for the week is in plastic compartment bento lunch trays. Then you are good to go, every morning you grab your meal for the day. Planning ahead helps you achieve a healthy balance on your menu choices. This saves you time, money, and stress.
However, the only drawback is that meal prep can be time consuming. Not everyone has that kind of time on the weekend. So instead of spending your precious time on the weekend planning and cooking, you only have to spend a short time online ordering your next week’s meals.
