Cheap Healthy Lunch Ideas for Work (Slide 1)

COMMENTS POSTEDsort icon

Terrible article. I eat healthy lunches for work but none of these fit the bill. These should be called "healthy lunch ideas for the stay at home mom". Too much time to prep AND not able to keep things fresh for a long period of time.

Healthy lunch suggestions for workers :)
- Don't fry it
- Don't eat deli meat (its full of salts and other garbage)
- Don't eat tons of dressing
- Don't eat too much salad (it'll give you gas and your co-workers won't like you)
- Don't eat things that smell funky (Again, you co-workers won't like you)
- Buy chicken breast and slice the meat or pull it into a a BBQ style meat. place this on a fresh salad or the bread of your choice. Top with a fresh squeezed lemon and a dash of black pepper and your off to the races
- Stock Clementines at your desk. If you ever get the urge for something sweet around 3:00 (like most people) eat a clementine and not a candy bar
- avoid sugary drinks and DIET SODA
- drink lots of water , water can actually make you lose your hunger feeling. Most people who overeat don't drink enough water.

And that's just a few tips. For more information on how to eat healthy my way please visit common sense = ) .

For all of you bringing up the amount of time that it takes to prepare them, the article never claims to have SPEEDY recipes it merely says CHEAP and HEALTHY. About half of these recipes are meant to be eaten cold and are some sort of salad. If you don't like soups don't complain about them, just don't eat them.

Where do you work where you can sip wine at lunch? I think I am in the wrong line of work!
