Cara Eisenpress, Big Girls Small KitchenI look forward to lunch. Everyday, whether I’m coming from class, catching lunch in the cafeteria at my internship, or going out (which I particularly anticipate). What I don’t enjoy is the money missing from my account and the way-too-full, time-to-nap sensation that occurs after I’ve devoured a hasty decision. Cara Eisenpress, Co-Founder of Big Girls, Small Kitchen and bonafide health foodie, explains the precursor to the comatose phenom: “When your stomach starts growling at noon, unhealthy cravings show up. It’s the worst way to start a meal, roaming the streets looking for a satisfactory lunch.”

Somewhere in the repressed section of my brain, I’ve always known brown-bagging it is a healthy and thrifty alternative, but visions of cold sandwiches and sad fruit cups kept me in denial. Not anymore. Here, Eisenpress offers the entire manual: packing tips coupled with the best tasting and easiest to construct healthy lunch recipes for full-on lunch nirvana.
 
GET PACKIN

Chances are that lunch hour will bring you face-to-face with fast food and comfort grub, whether you’re at the dining hall or downtown. Packing a meal allows you to “perfectly customize to your tastes, appetite, and dietary restrictions,” Eisenpress explains. Plan ahead, and you can count on a portion of satisfying fare that won’t bog you down.
