So I'm assuming you need lunch and snacks that travel well? My best advice would be to plan and prep your meals on Sunday or the night before.

Foods that are easy to prepare and travel very well are bean, grain, and pasta salads; sandwiches/pitas/wraps, veggie/bean burgers, salads, canned tuna or salmon and whole-grain crackers, hummus and veggies and/or pita, avocado, nuts and seeds, fruits, and if you have access to a refrigerator, or even a cooler, hard-boiled eggs, Greek yogurt and cottage cheese are great.
Protein bars are okay in an emergency, but you want to stick to whole food as much as possible.

Good food advice above. What is your lunch situation? Can you put things in a fridge? heat things up? When do you plan to workout?

I like to prepare my meals the week before- so a lot of the prep as its easier to make quick meals during the week. I have about an hr commute to work.

What made you decide to do Insanity? Goals? One of the best things to stay on track is to have a group for accountability. I just started a support thread and would love for you to join us! Support Thread

Happy to help with any questions!

Cheers,
Christina

Protein bars are typically pretty high in sugar and heavily processed, which can stall weight loss. Whole, unprocessed foods are always best.
