20 Prepackaged Lunch Ideas

From Portable Protein Snacks to Biodegradable Origami Bowls

— October 9, 2014 — Lifestyle
When it comes to lunch ideas, it can be more than difficult to prepare a fresh meal on a consistent basis, which is where these prepackaged varieties come in to help make eating well easy. Everything from full meals to individual snacks can be found on the store shelves, which comes in handy for those who either don't find themselves able to sit still long enough to eat a full meal or who lack the time (or ability) to prepare something fresh beforehand.

What we're seeing in the prepackaged goods industry is a shift towards a total rebranding; instead of avoiding the middle aisles in the grocery store, we're seeing consumers flock to them for lunch ideas to effectively make eating something delicious and nutritious in a pinch a cinch.
