Forget the food court! Pack a nutritious lunch fast w/ ‘planned extra’ leftovers. #nutritionmonth click to tweet Twitter

Pack nutritious food fast with “planned extra” leftovers for lunch.

Try these tasty ideas:

  • Cook extra chicken for dinner. For lunch, wrap chicken in soft tacos, with crunchy cabbage and shredded carrots, a sprinkle of feta and big squeeze of juicy lime or any other fillings you like. 
  • Roast extra root veggies. Layer them on crusty whole grain bread with hummus and baby spinach for a scrumptious sandwich.
  • Toss extra cooked whole-wheat pasta, couscous or barley with pesto, cherry tomatoes, lentils and small cheese chunks for a protein-packed salad.
Be sure to check our 1 Ingredient, 3 Easy-to-Make Meals ideas too.
