How can I make healthier choices at lunch?

We asked Sarah, ConnectiCare’s certified health education specialist, how to make lunches healthy and tasty.

She recommends thinking beyond the sandwich. “Make enough dinner to set aside a serving for your lunch the next day,” she said. Another great option: “Use your crock pot to cook up a large batch of food, like pulled chicken or turkey chili, and freeze portions in individual containers. All the convenience of a meal from the grocery freezer, but better!”

Die-hard sandwich or salad fan? Sarah suggests skipping the mayo and trying mashed avocado or hummus as your condiment. And for salads, reach for the salsa instead of dressing – yum!
