1. Fresh Rice Paper Rolls
Vietnamese rice paper rolls are packed with vegies, fresh herbs and a protein element such as prawns, or chicken. Skip dipping sauces, which are often high in salt and sugar.
Packed full of vegies 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.
3. Breakfast for lunch
You can’t go wrong with eggs on wholemeal toast – just hold the side of bacon and add 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.
5. Mexican burrito bowl
Note the all-important word ‘bowl’, which is a burrito minus the wrap. This is a protein-rich lunch, and if you go easy on the sour cream, cheese and guacamole, it will be a low-fat option.
6. 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.
