This spring after successfully completing a Whole 30, I totally fell off the wagon. Now that school's back in session and I have a routine to follow, it's been easier for me to eat better. However, it also takes planning. Last weekend I cooked up my lunches and breakfasts for the week. A co-worker and I split things up so if she brings breakfast one day, I will bring lunch.
Here are two of my new favorites:
Sweet Potato Zucchini Pancakes - I altered this recipe a bit for my own benefit. I'm not eating white potatoes right now, and am substituting almond flour for the whole wheat flour the recipe calls for. Both swaps just make this recipe even healthier than it already is. The recipe did include sour cream dipping sauce, but I'm not a fan of sour cream anyway, and it certainly isn't healthy.
Another great lunch has been Mason jar salads. I like that I can make these up ahead of time and they are still fresh. Pinterest has tons of recipes for them, but I've pretty much just followed the formula of putting the dressing at the bottom, and lettuce at the top and mine have seemed to work fine.
I'm on the lookout for more healthy lunch ideas, so if you have any winners, send them my way.
