Healthy Food Ideas For Lunch At Work

Have you ever had those moments where you are running out the door and suddenly you realize you forgot to pack a lunch… again!

Let me paint a picture for you, and you can tell me if it sounds familiar or not.

8:45: Oops… forgot to make breakfast! You grab a granola bar and head out.

10:00 You feel a crash coming on. Time for a coffee!

3:00 You lost track of time. You are STARVING! You gorge yourself on the nearest fast food joint you can find. The day begins to trickle by again. You snag a few more coffees, sodas, and a couple candy bars to hold you over as your energy begins to crash and stress takes over.

8:00- Feeling ravenous again!! You gorge yourself on Pizza. A well-deserved treat.

12:00- The hunger begins to strike again. You try to muster up the willpower to keep you from running to the fridge.

Look, if that scenario at all hit home, then you are not in good company. Working as a fitness professional has really taught me quite a few things: one of them being just how bent our modern culture is towards an unhealthy lifestyle. Convenience is key in our society.
