How-To-Pack-A-Paleo-Lunch1-1

When I didn’t work from home, my coworkers would constantly ask how I managed to pack a healthy lunch every single day. It really doesn’t need to be complicated: a protein, a starch (read about why white rice is healthier than brown and is a paleo approved starch HERE), a veggie, a snack.

Packing a healthy, paleo lunch is the easiest thing ever. AND IT SAVES A TON OF MONEY. Generally speaking, buying lunch everyday costs around $10, but packing your own 100% organic lunch is less than $5!

The big problem with buying lunch is that you never really know the ingredients. When I didn’t work from home, occasionally I bought food from my favorite local lunch spot or from the cafeteria at work. I know the meat and vegetables were not organic, but even more than that, they likely used cheap, rancid vegetable oils, MSG, soy and wheat.

When you pack your own, you know exactly what you’re getting.

I definitely recommend investing in good tupperware and lunch boxes. I always store food in tupperware, but it’s equally as easy to store leftovers in tupperware and pull ’em out of the fridge for a quick lunch the next day. I love these glass ones (no BPA!):
