4 Must Have Low Cal Lunches

It’s lunchtime and you need to exit out of that take-out app you have pulled up on your phone because cooking your own low-calorie lunches at home has never been easier. Who wants to feel sluggish after a heavy midday meal? Not you! So consider meal-prepping the following dishes for the busy week ahead.

Veggie Burger Lettuce Wrap


As you can probably tell by now, we’re big fans of lettuce wraps and this veggie burger lettuce wrap is no different. Add some fun to this lunch by throwing your favorite salsa on the veggie patty.

Black Bean Skillet


Turn up the heat and flavor with this black bean skillet. You’ll be shocked at how filing this dish is without any bread or meat. You can kiss your midday bloating farewell!  

Bean Burrito


How delicious do these burritos look? Your coworkers will be begging for your to share the recipe because this lunch will be the new office chat. Watch their jaws drop when you tell them it’s homemade and healthy!

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad


Chickpeas, bell peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, oh my! This mediterranean chickpea salad is overflowing with ingredients and flavor. It’s a nice alternative to a high calorie caesar salad (because we all know that dressing is dangerous territory).
