It’s important to have a healthy lunch to remain energiged while you break your head at work. Lack of adequate nutrition and staying hungry will inevitably impact your productivity and make you feel sick and fatigued all day long. Additionally, if you skip meals under work pressure, you may feel stressed. So, it is important that you eat well while you are working so hard. The first resort is to eat at the office canteen or buy a small meal from nearby shops. Instead, why not carry a lunchbox?
Most of us often miss carrying lunch while leaving for the office as we feel it may take a lot of time to prepare the food. It may sound time-consuming, but carrying your own lunch is the right thing to remain healthy.
Here are a few quick and healthy recipes you can prepare for lunch even on a busy working day:
Roasted sweet potato and quinoa salad
This simple salad recipe is loaded with goodness. Mix roasted sweet potatoes with quinoa. Add some boiled broccoli and chickpeas along with spinach, red cabbage, and avocado. Mix it with tahini sauce and lemon juice. This is loaded with protein, carbs, fibre, and healthy fats and will keep you full for a long day at work. Boiling vegetables take very little time and you can keep sweet roasted potatoes ready in advance. The quinoa can be prepared earlier and stored for up to 3–4 days. In the morning, just mix everything together.
Chickpea and Paneer salad
Take a bowl of boiled chickpeas with tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, and some paneer cubes. Mix it with spices like jeera powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and some other flavouring of your choice.
