Be Ready for Anything with these 6 Make-Ahead Lunch Ideas - Joy of Kosher

One of the secrets to healthier eating is having substantial, satisfying meals ready & prepped. (You can find more secrets at our Fresh Families headquarters.) This ensures that even when you are mad-hungry, are mega-busy, or out of solid ingredients...you will have something healthy to grab and go. 

The ideal make-ahead meal is packed with a variety of textures and flavors; making every bite enjoyable and something to look forward to.

Nori, as well as all seaweed, is very high in vitamins and minerals and low in calories. It also wraps well and you can put anything inside. We used smoked turkey, but feel free to adapt based upon your taste and what you have available.
