Easy to Prepare, Healthy Lunches for Work

I’m not much of a cook.

I was just reading up on how the high amounts of sodium in lunch meat increases risk for stroke, heart attack and diabetes. This has been my go-to for a long time - a simple smoked turkey breast sandwich with lettuce and a cheese slice. I’m looking for suggestions.

Make a pot of lentil stew over the weekend and put into five single-serving containers. Very tasty and healthy.

You could buy a rotisserie chicken and make a big vat of chicken salad (with Duke's mayo of course).

Minestrone Curry Salad with Chicken

make tabouleh. they even have decent boxes of it nowadays - a jar of sauce and the couscous you just mix in, no cooking. ADD: extra lemon juice, splash of olive oil, fresh parsley - as much as you have or can afford, some fresh chopped tomatoes, mint, golden raisins, chick peas if you like them. I add frozen then microwaved mirepoix mix. Its MUCH cheaper than buying tabouleh in a sandwich shop and its a lot of fibre and good vitamins.

Smoked tofu is surprisingly tasty, nothing like regular tofu. You can make a sandwich with it...no cooking or prep required. Or cut it up and add to a salad as your protein. Chickpeas are really versatile as well.

If you can afford it, and you like meat, buy better quality meat. Real baked ham, uncured, low sodium no nitrate. Buy roast beef that you see sliced from a fresh roast. She often have this at good Italian delis. Make your own meatloaf and bring meat loaf sandwiches. Buy good pate and make sandwiches on crusty bread with cucumber, mustard, mayo, sweet onion. or get the pate en croute you can slice and eat it with a salad.
