On A Time Crunch? These Easy And Healthy Lunches Will Keep You Full Without Weighing Down On Your Schedule
If you’ve spent up to $30 for a small piece of roasted chicken during your office lunch break, you know the pain. But what else can you do? You are always on a time crunch, and preparing lunch for yourself is never on your to-do-list. But wait, this blog will change the lunchtime for you.
Ahead, we have rounded up some easy-to-make lunch recipes that are simpler, healthier, and a lot more delicious than a restaurant’s meal.
Zucchini and Red Pepper Frittata
This veggie-based recipe is not extremely easy to make, but it’s also very healthy. It’s tangy, yet flavorsome filling makes it a wholesome lunch that you’d want to have every day. All you need to do is whisk some eggs together like you’d for an omelet. Add your choice of cheese, cream, and sautéed vegetables in the egg mixture and sprinkle some salt and spices as per your taste buds. Slide the skillet into your oven and let it bake until it’s cooked at the center. If you don’t have time to chop the veggies, toss in leftover meat and vegetables from last night in the eggs, and you’re good to go!
