5 Power Packed Healthy Lunch Ideas for your Brown Bag
Power Veggie Sandwich
“Sandwiches get a bad rap sometimes, but they can make a healthy comeback with upgraded versions like this vegan stack. Using whole-grain bread gives you killer taste and texture, and this veggie-stuffed recipe clocks in at 44 grams of whole grains and 10 grams of protein. Hummus, avocado, and fresh veggies offer a healthy dose of nutrition that fill you up without filling you out.”
Cobb Salad Wrap
“Wraps are what happens when a salad meets a sandwich, making this perfect for protein lovers who are watching their carb intake. It uses a ProteinUP Flatout wrap, which packs more than 12 grams of protein and only 8 grams of carbs. Plus, wrapping bacon with fresh greens is always a tasty choice.”
Trail Mix Energy Cookies
“Cookies can have their rightful place in a balanced, protein-packed lunch. Especially when the cookies feature whole grains, seeds, and delicious fruit. These Trail Mix Energy Cookies are the perfect way to satisfy any midafternoon cravings while delivering a hefty dose of nutrition, too.”
Whole grain cookies are made with oats, fruit, nuts and dark chocolate to give you a wholesome, energizing snack completely free of refined sugar. Pack them up for school, work or a day of errands for healthy, convenient snacking!
Raw Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bars
“No time for breakfast but need something to hold you over until lunch? A protein bar is a great idea to keep on hand for occasions like this, and making a batch a home allows you to control the ingredients and sugars.”
I have to admit I crave these little bites of flavor! They’re natural, protein-packed, plant-based gems.
