Fresh rice paper rolls
Vietnamese rice paper rolls are packed with veggies, fresh herbs and protein such as prawns, or chicken. Skip dipping sauces, which are often high in salt and sugar.
Packed full of veggies and meat, a souvlaki can be a healthy option. Choose chicken over pork, ask for it without the large pita wrap and don’t forget to swap the side of chips for a Greek salad.
Breakfast for lunch
You can’t go wrong with eggs on wholemeal toast – swap the bacon with avocado for good monounsaturated fatty acids.
Probably one of the best options available in the food court, this lunch is full of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
Mexican burrito bowl
Note the all-important word ‘bowl’, which is a burrito minus the wrap. Keep the fat low in this protein-rich lunch by taking it light on the sour cream, guacamole, and sauces.
Grilled fish and salad
This is a much better option than its beer-battered friend. You could even choose grilled calamari or prawns for a low-kilojoule, protein-packed lunch.
