Planning a healthy lunch doesn't have to be a chore. Make a healthy lunch an easy choice!

Set yourself up for success and avoid the packaged food cravings this week by preparing nutritious lunches ahead of time. Our Registered Dietitian, Carol Bell, has helped pull together three healthy lunches that can be prepared in less than 5 minutes and for less than $5 and they are packed full of all the good calories that will help you and/or your kids stay full, energized and focused as you finish out the day.

From protein-packed to vegetarian-friendly, these three recipes are designed to keep it easy, nutritious, and yummy too.

BONUS: Both the Pasta Salad and Brown Rice salad are actually a great way to make use of last night's leftovers!
