Even if you love to cook, packing lunch can be tricky since it requires coming up with meals that will pack, travel, reheat well — and, of course, you’ll look forward to. However, with some consistent practice, nailing that weekly lunch prep can become second nature.
To whip your lunch game into shape — and to hold you accountable — we’ve put together a two-week packed lunch plan that’s flexible enough to fit your tastes, schedule and food preferences, but structured enough that there’s no excuse to quit. Even more, our goal is to help you establish the lunch-packing habit beyond two weeks.
Whether it’s a sandwich or grain bowl, the formula is going to be roughly the same. Choose from a serving of macros then pile on as many veggies as you want. To keep things interesting and to keep you looking forward to your lunch, remember to change the ingredients as much as you can — and try to keep discovering new grains and vegetables, too.
