Create Your Own Adult Lunchable!

Who doesn’t love to snack? Snacking is so much fun! ⁣

The 𝘪𝘴𝘴𝘶𝘦 with snacks is that they are typically super processed foods that taste WAY TOO GOOD and don’t provide us much in the way of nutrients. It’s nearly impossible to eat 1 serving of most processed snack foods, am I right?

Chips for example…every weigh out one serving? Sad. I’d rather just skip them. 🙅‍♀️⁣ ⁣

That being said, what if you turned a MEAL into snacks? I’ve run into a lot of clients over the years that just aren’t into a proper “lunch” meal per se and would prefer to have snacky foods for their meals. That, or sometimes they are just burned out on salads or whatever…enter the adult lunchable! ⁣ ⁣ Remember lunchables? I never got on board with the gross meat in those things but I would CRUSH a pizza lunchable. Anyway, lunchables were FUN. They had a variety of different snacky things, and they were convenient. ⁣ ⁣ Today I’m providing you with a template and component ideas to create your own healthy lunchable! When creating your lunchable you want to make sure you’ve got a nutritional balance to help keep your energy stable and get in some protein! That means: protein, carb, fat, and veggie! ⁣ ⁣
