Healthy Lunch Options for Busy Moms

Healthy Lunch Options for Busy Moms

Out of all of the meals and snacks throughout the day, lunch is the one I struggle with the most. I get bored having the same thing day after day, and I often hate to break up the middle of my day with an elaborate meal. This is a serious problem for me, which I battle constantly. I hit the fast food restaurants all too often, which isn’t easy on the bank account, or my waistline. That’s where my idea for healthy lunch options comes in, and you won’t believe where you can snag them!

In the past, one wouldn’t think of a convenience store for healthy convenient foods, for busy moms on-the-go. Things are changing my friends, and 7-Eleven has us covered!

I can tell you from first-hand experience that the Fresh To Go food options are delicious and so much better for you than many of the fast food options. At first I was worried about the freshness of these foods, because they likely aren’t prepared at 7-Eleven. However, I was pleased with how fresh everything looked AND tasted! Then I learned that 7Eleven’s fresh foods are prepared in local kitchens and delivered to stores daily, to ensure freshness. 

7-Eleven's Fresh To Go Simply Chicken Salad Sandwich

This past weekend, I knew I would need a quick and easy lunch option for my business road trip to come on Monday. I had a 4-hour drive to get to a press trip, and because I am trying to eat more balanced, fast food wasn’t an option that day. After scoping out the Fresh To Go options at 7-Eleven, I settled on a Simply Chicken Salad Sandwich. I have to say that I made the right choice! The sandwich wasn’t messy, which made for easy on-the-go eating, but most of all, the sandwich tasted so fresh and yummy! No joke – this was one of the best chicken salad sandwiches I have had. And it’s from 7-Eleven! So happy to know I can pick one up just about no matter where my travels take me.

7-Eleven's Fresh To Go Mediterranean Style Pasta Salad

I knew hubby had a busy work day while I headed out of town, so I picked up the Mediterranean Style Pasta Salad for him. He was even kind enough to snap a photo for me. I am a big fan of feta cheese, and the hubs said the combination of spinach, cheese, tomatoes and kalamata olives, with a light and creamy dressing over pasta was just what he needed. All too often he grabs a burger or a burrito for lunch when he works outdoors, but a refreshing pasta salad was just right. The ingredients were all so fresh, and that cheese was oh so creamy. 

No matter where your day takes you, have peace of mind knowing 7-Eleven has your back with several Fresh To Go options. What have you tried? Visit the 7-Eleven Facebook page to see what else they are cooking up.
