Want to take it a step ahead – Make a box lunch using a bento box or a tiffin carrier. There are some amazing bento tiffin boxes available which i use often.
With a main meal put some mozzarella and tomato with basil, some baby carrots and hummus dip. Wrap a whole wheat roti or tortilla around some left over grilled chicken or turkey with lettue and avacado (my favorite). Dont forget some fresh fruit to finish the meal and make it a filling yet healthy lunch.
