We don’t always have enough time to eat meals at home, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t eat healthy, even when we’re at work. These healthy and portable meals are good because:
They are full of vitamins.
They have plenty of protein.
You will feel full after eating them — meaning you’ll crave less food.
So if you’re one of us busy folks, make sure to try some of these healthy and portable meals. Pack them in tupperware or in mason jars and take them on the go. You won’t regret it.
1. Start your morning right with bacon and eggs
Bacon and eggs is a meal that’s easy to love. It’s easy to make, and you can pack it and bring with you to eat it on the go. It has plenty of protein, which you need to get through the long day at work. On top of it all, after eating it, your tummy will stop craving food for a while. If you need to keep your bacon and eggs fresh for a longer period of time, you can use a mason jar.
2. Olive bread: it’s healthier than you think!
Olive bread is amazing if you’re a fan of salty food. It consists of spinach, cheese, roasted peppers, and, of course, olives. If you want to lead a healthy lifestyle even through you’re constantly on the go, remember to pack some olive bread with you.
3. Looking for portable pizza? Try roasted cheese and tomato calzones
This type of calzone is easy to make and it has an amazing taste. At the same time, it is still very healthy and portable. The ingredients you’ll need are tomato sauce, cheese, and a simple dough. Roll the dough like pizza and put tomato sauce and cheese on one half. Fold the dough over the sauce and cheese and close the ends with your fingers. Bake it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes (or more, depending on the size) and you’re good to go.
4. Waffles: a winning breakfast
Waffles are one of those meals that are quickly made and are really tasty. They can actually be quite healthy if you eat them with fruit. You’ll need to warm a waffle iron before you begin. Then, in one bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In the other bowl, you should beat together milk and a few eggs. Mix the both bowls together. Spoon the mixture onto the greased waffle iron and cook until it reaches a golden brown color.
5. Quick and easy breakfast cereal
If you really want to lead a healthy lifestyle, you can try some healthy cereals with milk. If you want to eat your meal on the go, just put your cereal and milk in separate mason jars and bring a bowl and spoon so you can combine and eat them when you’re ready.
6. Our Japanese favorite: Sushi
Sushi is high in nutrients and easy to eat on the go. First, roll fish, rice, and sliced carrots (or veggies of your choice) in nori. Then, slice the roll and put the pieces in a mason jar with some soy sauce. Now, you’re ready to bring them with you.
7. Looking for a healthy dessert? Try choco-bananas
Bananas are full of vitamin B and minerals, making them an ideal food for your healthy lifestyle. Try putting two sliced bananas, honey, and chocolate powder in a mason jar and you will be able to enjoy this sweet food on the go.
8. Tasty Asian Thai noodle salad
Asian food tends to be nutritious and healthy, and it’s only natural that it’s the same case here. Edamame alone has enough protein to get you through the day. You can bring this salad with you in tupperware or a mason jar. First, add noodles, then peanuts, edamame, and those crunchy vegetables for the best taste. Toss in some oil or a dressing of your choice.
9. Get in your greens with a tuna salad
There are plenty of vegetables in this salad, which means that there are also plenty of vitamins in it, and tuna is packed with protein. You will only need a little sliced onion, cabbage, some mayonnaise, olive oil, and tuna. First, put tuna in the jar, then sliced onion, chopped cabbage, and a little mayonnaise. Throw in a few drops of olive oil for taste.
10. Need energy for a long day? Try this chicken spring salad
Chicken spring salad is another great meal to take on the go. Cut the chicken into smaller pieces and cook it in the oil. Then, leave it to cool. Cut the cucumbers, cabbage, and onions into a small bowl and mix them with some olive oil. Place your chicken into the mason jar first, and then add the rest of your prepared ingredients. This meal is great since it has plenty of protein and vitamins, while also giving you enough energy to get through a long day.
