Lunch doesn't exactly have a reputation for being the most important meal of the day, or even anyone's favorite meal of the day. Sixty-five percent of Americans either eat lunch at their computer or don't take a break at all, and because of this, we all know (and hate) the sad desk lunch.
In an effort to stop overlooking our midday meals, we've asked nine nutritionists to describe their lunchtime orders and we found some commonalities among them. Most of the lunches are light (perhaps to prevent post-meal sleepiness or "food coma" in the afternoon), some of them can be eaten in one hand, like wraps and pita sandwiches, and all of them are loaded with nutritious vegetables and healthy fats.
People are generally only interested in whether or not their lunch can be eaten on the go or stored well enough to still be edible by noon. But hopefully with the help of these nine nutritionists, we can remember that lunch can be healthy and delicious, too.
