Simple Make-Ahead Lunches
The following are some of my super simple make-ahead lunches that I can quickly grab from the fridge before heading off to work. Tyson Grilled and Ready® Chicken is a great source of protein that can be added to so many of my favorite meals along with difference seasonings and spices to allow for simple variations. Typically I will just change the base of my bowl from things like spinach salad, quinoa, brown rice, or roasted sweet potatoes before adding in some more veggies and protein.
At some point during the week, I’ll throw some fresh and pre-chopped veggies I grabbed in bulk from Sam’s Club for the best value onto a large baking sheet with simple seasonings to have on hand for lunch prep and even dinner. Tyson Grilled and Ready® Chicken is already pre-grilled which saves on prep-time. To mix things up, I will occasionally grab a Jimmy Dean Delights® English Muffin from the freezer to have at lunch time. Using egg whites and turkey sausage it’s already a better option than hitting up a fast-food joint on my lunch break and will still satisfy the craving.
