DIY Healthy Lunchables

Who doesn’t love a good lunchable every now and then?

The Lunchables brand is the perfect alternative for the on the go guy or gal! What I don’t love is the lack of nutrition in each package. Looking at the sodium totals alone will skyrocket your blood pressure to Jupiter and back again!

Instead of spending money on the processed version, buy your own ingredients and put a healthier spin on this classic lunchtime favorite.

  • Cruise by your local Deli and pick out your own meats: smoked turkey, chicken breast, honey glazed ham, etc. (you can also raid your refrigerator and use last night’s dinner leftovers.
  • Purchase an amazing gourmet cheese.
  • Add crackers/pita chips, chopped veggies, fruit, and finish it off with a feel good snack like granola, Greek yogurt, or half of a delicious pastry.
