21 Healthy Lunch Ideas for Weight loss on a budget

healthy lunch ideas for weightloss on a budget

 

Ohh my gosh this week has been B-A-N-A-N-A-S. I am just getting over a nasty sickness that made me cough so much that I couldn’t sleep. Now my baby girl has it and I feel terrible! I swear I disinfected the whole house TWICE. Oh well, life happens, and now I get extra cuddles while she is feeling down.

I am unbelievably grateful for my meal plan creator, because even throughout my illness and taking care of a sick babygirl I managed to eat home made meals every day! Budget Win!

I will tell you what, I am getting pretty sick of my lunch though. Thanks to lack of creativity for healthy lunch ideas I have been eating the same turkey bacon chopped salad for like 2 weeks. AHHHH It is time to freshen up my list of Healthy Lunch Ideas, so I made a new one!

I think the key to eating a healthy lunch is variety of healthy lunch ideas and meal prep-ability. I like to meal prep a few days of healthy lunches at a time, so I can just grab and go on the busy weekdays. Here are some of my favorite products for lunch on the go!:

              

 

  1. I gotta have my water bottle any time I leave the house. I like this Brita Water Bottle, because if I am in a pinch I can refill anywhere and I can fliter my water. Plus it tastes so much better!
  2. What is more motivating than a cute Lunch Bag and matching accessories to make eating a healthy lunch fun!
  3. I love these Collapsible Food Storage Containers. They keep my pantry well organized and do not overcrowd!
  4. I like to have a Insulated Thermos for yummy soups and hot meals on the go. It’s leak-proof and keeps food hot for up to 5 hours!

Having your meal prepping materials like the one’s above, can help in making healthy lunches every week a breeze.

I like to have lots of veggies with my lunch, so salads tend to be my go to. I have found some really fun alternatives to salads too! These healthy lunch ideas are packed with lots of nutrients, veggies, and healthy foods.

I organized this list of healthy lunch ideas by 3 categories: Sandwiches & Wraps, Healthy Bowls, & Salads. They all sounds so delicious I can’t wait to try them out!
