What’s For Lunch? 5 Healthy Recipes to Bring to Work

Is your lunch lagging in nutrients, lacking vital energy and that all-important yumminess factor? Check out our top tips and 5 healthy lunch recipes in this week’s Wellness Wednesday post.


A Healthy Lunch Keeps You Going All Day

It’s no surprise that nutrition plays a critical role in the way we feel throughout the day. Eating a nutrient-rich lunch provides us with the energy we need to raise blood sugar levels and renew our focus and concentration- especially during the mid-day slump.

Yet, when it comes to health in the workplace, nutrition continues to be one of the most underrated components of employee wellness and is often forgotten.  

It’s easy to skip lunch- we get it.  Maybe you’re trying to lose weight or you’re stuck in a meeting- sometimes life gets in the way. Unfortunately, skipping lunch often results in overeating or turning to foods with poor nutritional value.

So what’s the trick to ensure you get the nutrition you need to thrive during the day?
