Life’s busy for most of us…
And guess what happens when we get busy?
Aside from maybe overlooking appointments, letting chores pile up and missing a few crucial hours of sleep, the most common thing we forgo is proper meals.
Any guesses on the most compromised meal of the day?
It’s your lunch.
Lunch is an integral meal of the day and one that shouldn’t be compromised, but despite knowing this, there are days when we resort to packing leftovers for work, ordering take-out, or worse, eating nothing at all – c’mon haven’t we all done it at some point in time?
The most common reason for this lazy approach to eating is again, time, and a lack of new ideas. If you are out of ideas or work with a tight schedule, cooking lunch may be the last thing on your mind, but that’s where we come in.
In this post, we are sharing with you to 7 quick and easy lunch box ideas using vegan, plant-based ingredients!
Let’s get going.
