20 Ways to Pack Some Protein Into Your Lunchbox

20 Ways to Pack Protein Into Your Lunch
When I was in college, it wasn’t uncommon for me to grab a granola bar or a bag of chips from a vending machine and call it lunch. Being older and wiser, I now know: a granola bar is not lunch! But when you’re in a rush, don’t have access to a microwave, or don’t have the money to buy a decent restaurant meal, your options are a little bit limited.

These 20 recipes are all lunchbox-friendly salads, sandwiches and wraps–meaning you can bring them to work or school and eat straight out of your lunchbox, without needing to reheat anything. And because lunch should keep you full and satisfied until dinner, every recipe in this slideshow has at least 10 grams of protein too. Good-bye granola bars, hello satisfying lunch!
