6 Awesome Lunch Box Ideas for Everyone(2019)

Are you a mom struggling every day to decide what to put in your kid’s lunch box? Or are you one of those working people, eating junk for lunch every other day or picking food from your colleagues’ lunch boxes just because packing a lunch box is a tedious task for you?

Don’t worry, I have got you covered with easy-peasy and interesting 6 lunch box ideas for everyone, be it adult or a kid, so that preparing a lunch box becomes the next best hobby for you. 

Firstly, being a lazy person myself I know how massive a task it is to wake up early in the morning and go to the office, preparing a lunch box was nowhere in my mind until I came across these amazingly simple lunch box ideas.

Also, you can prepare your lunchbox a night before or at least do some preparations for the morning, because why not? 

Your daily lunch box:

Now, let me just clear that packing a lunch box is not just about stuffing leftovers in a box, it’s more about eating with a healthy perspective.

Yes, leftovers can be a part of it but there are also other things that should be inside a lunch box like, fruits and vegetables.

Make sure that all the food you pack is rich in essential nutrients because this food is going to help you stay stuffed and working throughout the day, it is a fact that if you have a satisfying meal for lunch you tend to crave less for an unnecessary snack.

Add food with enough proteins to your lunchbox, as proteins help in feeling full for a longer time, at least till the time you get back home and make a warm homecooked meal for yourself. 

Tips for Healthy Lunch Box Ideas:

  • Decide beforehand 

Obviously, your time is precious and nobody likes a ranting boss when you reach the office late.

Decide what are you going to prepare for the lunch box tomorrow, the night before, it saves time the other day and also you don’t have to rush things now because you did not waste a lot of time thinking what you wanted to make. 

  • Make health a priority 

There is a lunchbox that has a few potato chips dripping in refined oil and some cake with an icing that screams of calories, then there is a lunch box with fruits, veggies, celery and a little treat like homemade peanut butter and a cracker.

Which one looks better to you? For me, it’s the second one because not only is it healthy but also Instagram worthy.

Give yourself the health you deserve, and packing a healthy lunch box is a good step towards the journey of a healthy life.

Add foods with fibers, carbohydrates, proteins, good fats and say a big no to processed food and refined carbs. 

  • Simplicity is the key

Go for simple lunch box ideas, don’t invest too much time into preparing a lunch box because there are 100 other things waiting for you in the morning. Keep it simple but healthy.

Yes, if you are extraordinaire and cook super fast, you can go fancy!

  • Cook a few meals in advance 

It is always a good idea to cook and store a few meals in advance if you have some extra time.

If this Sunday, you get into the mood of cooking, you can cook meals for the next five working days and store them in the freezer.

Next morning, microwave the thing and carry it with you. Just keep in mind to choose such foods that stay fresh even after storing for a few days and don’t go all stale.
