Pro Tip: This is How to Have a Happy Lunch All Week Long
Let’s face it—office lunches aren’t glamorous. Whether you order take out religiously or are accustomed to staring at the sad, slow rotation of the microwave plate heating that week’s fourth Lean Cuisine, it’s time for something better.
Eating at work is a fact of adult life, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious as well as convenient. What if I told you there was an easy way to eat well (and healthy) all week long? Well, there is! And it starts with your grill.
If you’re already familiar with the idea of meal prepping for the week the weekend before, then this idea will be an easy one to latch onto: simply fire up the grill on a Saturday or Sunday, throw a few choice proteins on (we know a good place), and get grilling. When you’re done, add some veggies or whatever side you prefer, and voilà! You’ve got five lunches ready to reheat for the whole week.
If you’re hesitant to take the meal prep plunge, here are a few reasons why you should dive in—and use your grill as the heat source:
- It’s healthier—and cheaper. Put down the sandwich shop menu—everyone knows it’s healthier on you and your wallet to bring your lunch to work, especially if you buy and prepare your meat in bulk. We can help with that!
- Believe it or not, it can be tastier, too. When you bring in your own food for lunch, you control the menu—and that’s where you can get creative. By using your grill to cook your preferred proteins, you’re guaranteeing a better cook, and better prolonged flavor when you go to reheat your lunch.
- It doesn’t have to be overwhelming. By prepping a whole week’s worth of lunches at once, you’re saving time, you’re saving money, and you’re saving stress. Sure, a little planning goes into the day you’re prepping, but after that, you won’t have to worry about a thing. We can make it easier on you, too—because our meats are individually packaged and vacuum-sealed, you can prepare as many as you like at once, and freeze the rest for later.
This summer, you’re already ready to grill at the drop of a hat. So why not meal prep in style? Grill your lunch!
