    Healthy lunches for Work:

    Cooking and packing up a quality healthy lunch is a good idea for so many reasons. Whether or not you're trying to lose weight, bringing your own lunch to work keeps you in charge of the ingredients that fuel your body and helps you perform at your best both at work and in the gym. Regardless of your dietary limitations and preferences, (at least!) one of these healthy recipes will fit the bill and make its way into your lunchtime rotation. 1 Avocado Shell Salad No need for the oven for this refreshing lunch: avocado shell salad. It has 60 percent of your recommended fiber for the day, aids in digestion, and may even diminish belly fat. 2 Veggie and Hummus Sandwich If you're tired of a vegan-friendly sandwich that doesn't satisfy, prepare to build the best veggie sandwich ever. Hummus and avocado provide the fiber and protein you need to stay fueled, and layers of tasty veggies offer crunch, flavor, and important nutrients your body needs. 3 Roasted Sweet Potato and Quinoa Salad Make your lunch really fiber-licious and filling with this sweet potato and quinoa salad. Beyond being loaded with fiber to help move things along, those roasted sweet potatoes can help regulate your blood sugar and help you lose weight! 4 Sweet Potato, Chickpea, and Quinoa Burger This sweet potato, chickpea, and quinoa veggie burger is perfectly spiced and completely satisfying. At 202 calories per patty, you can add a 120-calorie whole-wheat bun and lettuce, tomato, and ketchup (34 calories) and still come in at well under 500 calories. Make multiple patties in advance to enjoy as a sandwich or on top of greens for the week. 5 Eggless Kale Caesar Salad For just the same addictive taste as the original with an added bonus — vitamin-A-rich superfood kale — opt for this lighter Caesar salad dressing instead. This recipe omits the egg yolk and a lot of the cheese for a lower-calorie dressing that tastes exactly like the classic. Using kale instead of romaine lettuce increases the nutrients, adds texture and flavor, and allows the salad to keep in your fridge without going limp. 6 Spicy Chicken Chili Substituting ground chicken for beef in this spicy chili recipe brings the same traditional flavors and textures of the classic you crave — just lightened up for your healthy diet. Make a pot on Sunday night, and pack up a hearty serving for lunch. 7 Vegan Bean Salad After a hard midday workout, this vegan bean salad is the perfect, protein-packed refreshing meal. It has more than 13 grams of fiber and nearly 17 grams of protein to fill you up and help your muscles recover. 8 Chickpea and Kale Stew If you tend to steer away from hot and spicy dishes, this vegan chickpea and kale stew will change your mind. Delicious straight from the pot, it's even better the next day as leftovers. 9 Rainbow Quinoa Salad This beautiful veggie-packed quinoa salad is under 350 calories, offering 13 grams of protein and seven grams of fiber. Any vegetarians or vegans looking for a protein-rich recipe to support weight loss will fall hard for this salad. 10 Baby Kale Sesame Salad Kale may be a nutritious powerhouse, but its flavor is anything but timid. If you're tired of making soups, smoothies, and salads from the dark-green roughage, baby kale makes an excellent alternative. The little leaves are tender, are mild in flavor, and don't require the prep (chopping and massaging) necessary for their more mature counterparts, but they still contain the disease-fighting nutrients you need. Baby kale, baby spinach, and chard make a perfect delicate combo for this sesame chicken salad. 11 Santa Fe Vegetable Soup This Paleo-friendly vegetable soup simmers nicely in your slow cooker overnight for lunch the next day. While this recipe uses shredded chicken and chicken stock, you can substitute them with more beans and vegetable stock for a vegetarian dish that still packs in the protein you need to fight fat. 12 Loaded Baked Potato Soup Versatile cauliflower stands in for the majority of the starch, which dramatically slashes the carb count without sacrificing the texture or flavor of this loaded baked potato soup. Top it off with your favorite classic baked potato garnishes, and prepare to be wowed. 13 Healthy Chicken Salad Traditional chicken salad clocks in at 500 calories, but this healthy chicken salad is 139 calories per serving. The secret? A simple swap of Greek yogurt for mayo. Serve with one or two slices of bread (like wheat bread, 220 calories for two slices). THANKS FOR WATCHING VIDEO.........
