Healthy Lunches to Go

Health conditions, food allergies, and food sensitivities require many people to watch what they eat. Diligence is one thing at home, but finding something quick and easy to take to work is a completely different animal. We know that eating healthy food is important, but many times lunch proves to be the most difficult meal to meet dietary restrictions. Sometimes we’re unprepared. Sometimes we’re too busy. Sometimes we just don’t want to prepare healthy lunches. Skipping meals or choosing bad-for-you options like fast food are very real possibilities. Rather than succumb to unhealthy temptations, we’ve put together a list of tasty, easy and good-for-you recipes to take to work.fresh  tortilla wraps with vegetables on the plate

Not a Bad Wrap

Wraps are some of the easiest and delicious recipes we know. You can make them in minutes and the possibilities for different ingredients or flavors are seemingly endless. You can pair your favorite wrap with some fresh fruit and veggies for a healthy, delicious lunch to fuel your body for the rest of your work day.

Turkey Avocado Wrap

In a whole wheat wrap — or gluten-free wrap depending on your food allergies — spread a small amount of mayonnaise, wrap up some sliced roasted turkey, avocado, tomato, cucumber and lettuce. You can jazz the recipe up with a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper and a squeeze of lime juice. Tired of turkey? Not a problem. You can use chicken or shrimp to give the wrap some variety.

Cobb Salad Wrap

Using the wrap of your choice, use sliced chicken and ham with lettuce, tomato, hard-boiled egg and some fat free ranch dressing. If you want to make it really special, throw in some sliced avocado and turkey bacon for a delicious and nutritious meal.

Make It Work for You

If you know what your body’s needs are, you can tailor your diet to maximize your health and wellness. Knowing what foods you can and can’t have is key to an optimal diet for you. ARCpoint labs offers allergy testing, vitamins and minerals deficiency testing, and cholesterol testing so you can know what you should eat to get healthier and feel better.
