Easy On-the-Go Lunch

Since my race is only a handful of days away, I am trying to fuel my body with nutritious food that will help ensure that I have the stamina to complete 13.1 miles. Basically, I am focusing on eating lots of fruits and veggies, lean meat, and brown rice and/or whole wheat pasta.

Which, now that I think about it, this is how I should be eating all of the time. Hopefully this will be the jump start I need to get my booty in gear! 


Here's what my lunch has consisted of the past 2 days:
  • Sliced peppers, snap peas, & broccoli from the salad bar at the grocery store
  • 2 turkey sausage sticks
  • 1 Mini Babybel Cheddar round
  • Handful of pretzels
Yesterday, I went to the grocery store and picked up a styrofoam container full of veggies, grabbed a 4-pack of the turkey sausage sticks, and a bag of the cheddar Babybels. The veggies and turkey sausage sticks were perfect for two lunches, and I still have pretzels and cheese left. It was really yummy and super easy!

Is it the best lunch option out there? Maybe not, but it is a heck of a lot better than grabbing fast food. For me, the best part about this meal is that it was balanced: a good dose of veggies and protein plus healthier amounts of fat and carbs. AND, I also have a new found love of snap peas! YAY!
