Healthy lunch ideas

Try something different for lunch.

  • Peanut butter and jelly. Try natural peanut butter, it's healthier.
  • Canned pop-top black bean dip or hummus with crackers
  • Individual cans of tuna
  • Fruit!
  • Protein bars (I like Titan Bars)
  •  Low-fat or fat-free yogurt
  • Whole grain cereal (great for a pre-practice snack later in the day)
  • Trail mix (not the kind with tons of sugary candy in it!)
  • Pita chips
  • Raw veggies with hummus or salsa
  • Salads (skip the fried wontons or any fried topping), try a variety of greens, shredded carrots, chopped bell peppers, tomatoes etc. The more colors the better.
  • Almost any kind of sandwich on 100% whole wheat bread or whole grain bread. Turkey breast, chicken breast and pork are lower in fat and healthy versions.
  • Low -fat cheese and crackers
