Chances are you’ve shown up for school or work only to be disappointed with what’s found inside your lunchbox. The feeling doesn’t go away when you leave grade school for university and the working world. There’s just nothing more disappointing than a boring, soggy and flavorless lunch.
The good news is that there are many ways to prepare cheap and healthy meals for your brown bag lunch. Taking a healthy lunch to work won’t just prevent disappointment, it will stop you from skipping out for a high-calorie lunch at the local burger joint…
1. Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
Ever heard of Elvis Presley’s favourite snack? It consisted of peanut butter, banana, and bacon, all fried inside two slices of bread. Eventually dubbed “The Elvis”, this high-calorie heart-stopping treat helps explain why the King of Rock died so young.
But you can prepare a healthier Elvis by skipping one item, bacon, and the frying. Just slap some sliced banana on whole grain bread, layer some peanut butter, and close it up tight. You’ve got potassium, protein, and healthy fats without all the salt, calories, and saturated fat of The Elvis.
