Want to make healthier lunches, but never have the time for it? Here’s 7 super easy things you can add to your lunch boxes, to super-charge your meals!
Broccoli contains heaps of antioxidants and key minerals like magnesium, without much in the calorie department. Black them quickly in boiling water if you have the fresh stuff, or just microwave frozen broccoli if you’re strapped for time!
- Chicken breast
Packed with protein and pretty low on calories, you can add chicken breast to just about anything! Have it with a power-packed salad, or serve it with some wholegrain bread or brown rice.
- Coriander Leaves
Coriander helps with digestion, and is packed with antioxidants and Vitamin A, making it a great addition to any meal or salad. Plus, it’s full of flavour – turning your bland meal into a fab meal.
- Baby spinach
If it’s good enough for Popeye, then it’s good enough for me! Spinach is packed with protein and zinc, as well as fibre to keep you full on those long shifts. It’s great fresh, with some cherry tomatoes or cucumber slices, with just a hint of olive oil.
Trade your tomato sauce or Sriracha for this spicy Middle Eastern sauce! The capsaicin in harissa aids digestion and helps you lose weight. Plus it’s got less calories than most sauces, giving you that essential flavour hit without the extra inches on the waistline!
