You could do various cucumber wraps for a packed lunch, or pack hummus + carrots and celery, pb&j, salads, pita chips and veggie dips, salsa and chips, vegetable soup (if you have a thermos), vegan pasta salad, fruit cups, apple sauce, fruit salad, umm maybe some kind of smoothie, I've brought a full avocado and then used a butter knife to cut it open to eat during lunch with seasonings.

😍 You an MVP for this.

This is an extensive lift of groceries and I definitely don’t have all of this in my kitchen at once. Mostly bc I cook for myself and the food would go bad before I could eat it all. But you can definitely work from this list.

Can you recommend some clean meals? Breakfast / lunch / dinner?

ya sure. i usually eat the same things all the time, you can see what’s normally on my grocery list here. i try to make 5/6 meals a day with those things, but here’s a few ideas for b + l + d.

breakfast; 1. i usually have shakeology (it’s a protein powder from beachbody which is the company that distributes insanity/p90x etc.) i’ve been drinking it for about three years and it’s definitely had a big hand in my weightloss/nutrition. most days i’ll put a banana + berries + a loooot of ice to give it the consistency of ice cream that way it feels like i’m eating more than just a drink. i put a tbsp of almond butter on a spoon and eat it like that, keeps me super full unlike any other protein shake/meal replacement drink i’ve ever tried. if you don’t want to use shakeology, just juicing fruit/making your own smoothie is a good bet. Garden of Vegan has a shit ton of delicious smoothie recipes/food in general by meal. 2. egg whites! if i have more time in the morning i make a lil egg white omelet with tons of veggies (broccoli/green peppers/onions/spinach) + one slice of whole wheat ezekial bread + fruit (kiwi/strawberries/pineapple.) 3. steel cut oats/ hemp granola/ flax seed are also stuff i keep lying around if i don’t have time to make the latter.

lunch; 1. tilapia + 3 cups carrots and broccoli (i often eat this for dinner also.) 2. almond butter + apple sandwich on whole grain bread + an orange 3. lemon tuna over a mixed greens + apples and celery 4. lil salad: spinach and baby lettuces, sliced cucumber, grape tomatoes, sliced almonds, sesame seeds, + guilt free trader joe’s tortilla chips, and roasted garlic hummus. 5. seasoned brown rice, black bean, and kale “burrito” wrapped in iceberg lettuce with tomato + lime. grapes + almonds on the side.

dinner; 1. tilapia + 3 cups carrots and broccoli (sometimes i’ll add brown rice or quinoa) 2. brown rice + black beans 3. steamed broccoli, and tri-colour quinoa + sriracha. 4. salmon + sweet potato + steamed broccoli 5. gardenburger’s black bean chipotle veggie burger (actually heaven) with avo/tomato/lettuce on a whole wheat english muffin + veggies 

these are just what i tend to eat, even though most of the time i’ll eat the same exact things for a week. regardless, hope this helps :*
