On-the-go meal ideas: Plan and Pack Smart!

It’s Sunday! So let me help you come up with some healthy lunch box ideas for you and your family. Work/school lunches shouldn’t be boring, and they most certainly don’t need to be bought. So often we buy our lunches or turn to the over-processed nutritionally empty packaged options because we are out of ideas. So please, let me do the thinking for you!

I know what some of you might be thinking – if it isn’t “I don’t know what to eat”, it’s that it requires a lot of time. It’s true, healthy living does require some preparation. But what can be more valuable than time spent toward good health? Your health is in your hands. Make better choices for better health!

I am so passionate about clean eating on-the-go. Food prep is my number one tip for a healthy week… Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. I believe nutritious food is more delicious than the processed junk, is clearly better for us, and what’s more, it really doesn’t need to be complicated. Make a big batch of something and dish it out throughout the week. Choose a few options and repeat!

Below are perfectly good meal options to include in your diet. Mix and swap vegetables as much as you can for nutrient variety and you are set for a week of vibrant energy! Whether it’s an on-the-go breakfast, a packed lunch for you or your children, a mid-morning or afternoon snack, I have you covered!

Anything at all. Please comment below or DM me!! I would love to hear from you!


IMG_0500Lunch options

  • Homemade sushi using brown rice or quinoa, veg, avocado, tempeh/tofu. I also like to add kim chi and tahini!
  • Mountain bread/gluten free wraps with salad, avocado/hummus/pesto & lentils/beans.
  • Lentil Bolognese with konjac/zucchini noodles.
  • Bean Burgers with salad and a tahini vinaigrette.
  • Super Salad – 2-3 cups leafy greens and salad veg with 1/2 cup beans, 1/4 avocado and optional 1/2 cup sweet potato or quinoa. Homemade salad dressings.
  • Tempeh/Tofu poke with green salad, or in a wrap.
  • Mung bean pasta with pesto, sautéed veg.
  • Quinoa, Black Bean, and Corn salad – keeps well!



  • Rosemary & Sea Salt Seed Crackers with 2-3 tbsp hummus, pesto or avocado.
  • Coconut yoghurt with stevia and cinnamon, small handful nuts and seeds, and 1/4 cup blueberries.
  • Shredded carrots drizzled with 1 tbsp tahini, 1 tsp maple syrup, cinnamon + 4-5 walnuts, crushed.
  • 2 x Bliss Balls
  • Chopped veg – raw zucchini, cucumber, capsicum, celery, carrot – with Cashew Coconut Pesto.
  • Raw trail mix – my favourite combo is raw almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, 1-2 chopped dates + tbsp goji berries.
  • Handful of homemade granola
  • 1 x Choc banana muffin
  • Sliced apple with cinnamon and nut butter of choice (or small handful nuts)
  • Kale Chips with Tahini Cumin Dipping Sauce
  • Nori sheets wrapped around vegetable sticks, avocado and tahini + Kim chi.

Nori wraps are my go-to savoury snack that also ensure a serving or two of veg These are a great alternative to large handfuls of nuts/dried fruit/bliss balls/bars which can be easy to default to. Sea vegetables (nori, dulse, arame etc) are low in calories but overflowing with nutrients, as they are exposed to the mineral-rich ocean Not just iodine calcium, iron, omega 3, vit C too! I prefer to get the #raw nori sheets from @sprout_market (not toasted) so they're in their purest, most nutritious form - and use them in soups, stir-fries, salads & of course sushi or nori rolls!!
