Have you ever found yourself Googling ‘healthy lunch near me’ at 12:55pm on a weekday in the office?

There are many new healthy lunch options popping up, but the variety dwindles to only a couple of options when searching an area that falls within 5-minute walk from the office.  Prepping a decent packed lunch on a Sunday evening can also fall down low on the priority list.

In this post, we’ll consider what a varied healthy lunch looks like with a few healthy lunch examples that will keep your waistline in check!

 

What is a healthy lunch?

According to the World Health Organisation, a healthy lunch (or diet) consists of a combination of different ingredients. These include:

  • Staples such a potatoes, wheat and rice
  • Legumes (i.e. seeds) such as lentils, peas, and nuts
  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Meat and dairy products

A healthy lunch consists of a variation of the above; so a daily crisp sandwich just ain’t guna cut it!

 

Why is a healthy lunch Important?

We all know the obvious… a consistent healthy lunch (and diet in general) will improve your overall physical health and reduce your risks of ailments later in life. A number of studies, however, have suggested that eating well may tackle more typical problems that plague the minds of us, busy professionals. These include:

Improved memory
A 2015 study revealed that certain foods such as fish containing omega-3 and a range of vitamins that help tackle cognitive decline.

Happier mood
In 2016, researchers discovered that refined carbohydrates (those found in soft drinks, white bread and cake for example) can increase symptoms of depression and fatigue.

Better sleep
A number of factors can cause sleep apnea, many of which stem directly from an unhealthy diet.
