These 14 Energy-Boosting Lunches Are Better Than Coffee
No matter how much coffee we drink in the morning, we inevitably feel the dreaded 4 o’clock slump every afternoon. That was until we got ahead of the problem, with lunches designed to boost our midday energy and leave us ready to tackle the rest of the day with a smile on our face.
Southwestern Veggie Hummus Wraps
So easy, so delicious, so many vitamin-packed veggies.
Green Goddess Sandwiches
It’s OK to stack a sandwich this high when everything on it’s so healthy.
Avocado Toast with Eggs, Spinach and Tomato
Regular avo toast is great, but this is just so next-level. (And packed with protein.)
Avocado Chicken Salad
Creamy without being heavy.
Chickpea and Spinach Salad
Salads don’t need a million ingredients to be delicious.
Southwest Pasta Salad with Chipotle-Lime Greek Yogurt Dressing
You can have pasta for lunch when it’s made from red lentils and quinoa and loaded with veggies.
Sweet Potato Noodle Pad Thai
We’re swooning over swoodles (sweet potato noodles, that is).
Grilled Salmon Cobb Salad
This one’s Whole30-friendly too.
Slow-Cooker Tomato, Kale and Quinoa Soup
Make a batch of this on Sunday and you’ll have energy-boosting lunches for a week.
