9 Protein-Packed Lunch Ideas

Rectangle 58

Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

Fit + Fueled

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

Lunches can get SO boring! Who’s with me? The same old salad and grilled chicken (or let’s be honest, rice cakes + almond butter or anything you can grab on the go) sometimes just doesn’t cut it. I get weekly requests from many of my readers and clients for delicious and nutritious lunch ideas. I thought it would be fun to share 9 of my favorite protein-packed meals that are perfect for spicing up lunch!

Many of these recipes can be made ahead of time – easy to bring to work or eat at home. And, they are all perfect for summertime – light, refreshing, and so very filling! Which one are you going to try first?
