Power Up Lunch

Maintain your energy throughout the afternoon by packing yourself a vibrant midday meal.


These recipes will help you create healthy and tasty lunches that won’t cause an afternoon meltdown. Prepare the dishes up to two days ahead and store in the refrigerator. If required, you can heat them up in a microwave, and they will be ready to eat in minutes. Add fresh fruits or veggies, nuts or cheese, and a sensible beverage, and you’ll stay productive throughout the workday.
