Clean Eating Lunch Prep

Weekends are the right time for getting next week's Clean Eating lunch routine in order. Remember - it takes a little bit of preparedness to eat unprocessed foods. Making them convenient is a snap! Here are a few tips if ( like me ), you work outside the home in an office where having something Clean to turn to will prevent you from straying off path at lunch time!

Every weekend, take some time to grill up ( on the grill outside, on the George Foreman, wherever! ) some chicken breasts, salmon or turkey burgers, or some vegetables are all excellent on the grill, and are perfect to freeze / refrigerate in individual "grab & go"lunch portions.

Take some time to boil a dozen eggs, and package an egg with a few strips of bell pepper, or carrots,  and maybe a handful of raisins and almonds for another quick "grab and go" mini meal you can easily munch at your desk or while in the car.

While at the grocery store, keep your eye towards Clean Eating portion options - yogurts, string cheese         ( keep it organic, please! ), canned tuna, marinated artichoke hearts, hummus - all are great options to pack for lunch.

The ingredients for an easy, filling, Clean pasta salad couldn't be easier - chopped leftover grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, artichoke hearts, and whole wheat pasta. Toss together with whatever CE dressing floats your boat, and you've got an easy portion of Clean to take to work!
