Lunch Idea 1: Protein Pasta Bento Box
The first nutritious lunch idea for work is the Protein Pasta Bento Box by @momnutritionist. This bento box is quick and easy to make, simply add pesto pasta to the bottom section of your bento box and in the divider above add brazil nuts, peach, cucumber and tomatoes. If this combination of fruits, nuts and veggies isn’t quite your taste then switch them out for your faves.
Lunch Idea 2: Hummus Veggie Sandwich
Another nutritious lunch idea by @momnutritionist is a delicious hummus veggie sandwich. This one really is what it says on the tin: bread, hummus and your salad of choice. Add some blackberries, pumpkin seeds and dark chocolate on the side and enjoy!
Lunch Idea 3: Curry and Rice
Again, another beauty by @momnutritionist but this time it’s the classic combo of curry and rice. Add your curry and rice of choice to the bottom of your bento box and in the dividers above try some strawberries, almonds and Greek yoghurt.
