A busy daily schedule might mean that you don't have a lot of time to prepare lunch -- but you can make nutritious meals from unprocessed ingredients that are also easy to make. Many common lunch options, such as canned soup, deli meats and fast food sandwiches, are highly processed -- but other unprocessed foods offer convenient, appetizing lunch options. Keeping nutritious options in mind can enable you to plan a lunch that doesn't have as many preservatives and additives as you would find in more processed foods.
If the only meat that shows up in your lunch is processed, you may be decreasing the nutritional value of your meal. Replace processed meat with fresh meat and your lunch will be more nutritious, but just as tasty. Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Steak Salad, Turkey Noodle Soup, Barbecue Pork Sandwich, etc.
