14 Healthy Ideas For Meals on the Go!

foods-to-go

We all know what it’s like when we’re busy and hungry – we tend to make bad choices! And then, we just end up feeling annoyed with ourselves! It’s crazy. We need a good plan.  That’s why I put together this list of quick meals for on the go. This is for all of us who want a healthy meal on the ready, to help us keep up the energy and feeling good!

1. Frozen Soup – freeze a big batch of soup in muffin trays. Great for the office, pack  a portion in a container – it will defrost throughout the day and just heat it up for a healthy lunch!

2. Quinoa Cold Salad – You could easily make a few jars of this. It keeps well in the fridge and you’re set for the next couple of days to grab-and-go!

3. Fruit on the bottom yogurt cups: This is my kid’s new favorite… and I’m not complaining!

4. Get set up – buy a bento box: If you don’t have a bento box yet – go get one! When you have the right equipment, it makes packing healthy lunches much easier! PS – here’s my recipe for a 10 minute Spanish Omelette

5. Celery and Peanut butter: then again, packing a snack can be this easy too! :)

7. Wrap it up! Wraps make an easy and portable meal for on the go!

8. Salad in a jar! Not only is anything in a jar completely adorable, but it’s really practical too! Keep your wet and dry layers separate until you’re ready to toss it all in a bowl (or just eat straight from the jar!)

9. Chili and Cornbread: You prep ahead (the chili and cornbread dough) and then just bake the whole thing in a jar! I bet that you can freeze them unbaked… defrost it in the fridge over-night… pop it in the oven first thing in the morning – and  win the prize for best lunch in the afternoon!

10. Pasta in  Jar – It’s too easy! Cook, jar, eat! Here’s my recipe for a super easy tomato sauce!

11. Snack Attack – Roasted Chickpeas and “Cheesy” Kale Chips. Be prepared for the munchies! These are my two absolute favourite zero-guilt snacks!

12. Plan ahead! When I get super organized – everything runs smoother. This idea for day-of-the-week snacks is great. Sure, your fridge may look like a crazy person’s – but you’ll be smiling!  :) But, do try to create no-waste packing solutions!

13. Keep it Light. Sometimes you just need a boost of energy – give this green juice a go!

    I love all of these ideas, but one little concern – about the cornbread and chili. If the jars are refrigerated over night, they really should come to room temperature before going in the over. A dramatic temperature change is risk and could cause the jar to break. There are some containers that can go directly from fridge to oven, but I don’t know that canning jars fit this category…? Or, just make sure you use a container that is safe to go fridge-to-oven without coming to room temp first.

    Thanks for this Militza! I’m always looking for quick meals to pack for work. I make overnight oatmeal for breakfast, which tastes great and is super easy to make – I mix oatmeal, milk, honey and dried cranberries in jar and let it sit in the fridge till I leave the next morning. It’s delicious! :)

    Yum! That sounds delicious! Thanks for the great idea!

    Great ideas. One tip on reducing the amount of plastic used is rather than sealing in plastic bags, try wrapping in butcher’s brown paper – I get mine at the local Shen Siong. Cheap, relatively wetproof and sustainable!

    So you just convinced me to get a dehydrator! I’ve wanted one for ages, but I’m always confused which one to get. I just bit the bullet and got one. :) Thanks! Can’t wait to make cheesy kale chips!

    Hi Christina! Hurray! Good for you – please let me know how you get on with your kale chips :))
