Best Lunches to Bring to the Office
- Good Eats (And Drinks)
It can be challenging to balance a full-time job and all of the responsibilities of managing a household. There just aren't enough hours in the day to devote to giving your best effort at work and then somehow fitting in exercise and parental duties.
With all of these responsibilities, meal preparation sometimes falls through the cracks, and you might find yourself buying lunch every day. Not only can this affect your wallet, but it can also lead to poor food choices. After all, when you're hungry and in a rush, you might opt for what's fastest, and not necessarily healthiest.
Don't let your busy schedule ruin your diet. With Crock-Pot® Cuisine, you can reap the benefits of a home-cooked meal in just a few simple steps. You can pack these all-natural meals into your Crock-Pot® Lunch Crock® Food Warmer and have a great tasting, savory lunch that only takes minutes of prep work on your part. Here are some of the many great tasting, filling lunches you could be bringing to work:
Sesame Ginger Chicken
Why stick to a standard dish of chicken and vegetables when you can pack it with tasty spices and noodles in the same amount of prep time? The sesame ginger chicken dish from Crock-Pot® Cuisine features white meat chicken and a colorful array of vegetables tossed in a zesty sauce. It includes a small portion of noodles for an authentic Asian meal without the excessive calories, making it the perfect dish for a midday lunch. You'll feel full and satisfied but not weighed down.
Sage Garlic Chicken and White Bean
Sage and garlic are a great pair. The herb and spice complement each other nicely and taste great on chicken. Pack this meal for lunch and refuel for the day without sacrificing taste or time. The dish includes tender chicken, roasted potatoes and beans for a large dose of protein to keep you energized. It's also packed with spinach and tomatoes for even more flavor and nutrition.
Lemon Herb Chicken
For an especially light meal that's tasty and satisfying, choose the lemon herb chicken dish. It's packed with nutritional ingredients, like chicken, green beans and onions.
