It can be tough finding a healthy food option in a pinch when you work downtown. You need to refuel, but when your choices are limited — that’s when the fast food starts calling. …Then cue the 2pm feeling, slumped over and sleepy at your desk. Sound familiar?

When it comes to choosing our mid-day meals, most of us go for convenience over quality. We need a nutrition-packed meal that’s going to energize us, not slow us down — but when you only have 45 minutes for lunch, where do you go?

When you work out like us, re-fueling is key. Whether you squeeze in an early-morning class or plan on an after-work ride, that mid-day meal is crucial for your energy levels.

Many people mistakenly believe that you can eat a greasy meal so long as your counteract it with a heavy workout, but this is not the case. Eating a 300-calorie donut does not provide the same nourishing satisfaction nor energy levels as eating a 300-calorie salad with whole chicken.

High-sugar foods like donuts go through your body quickly, making you hungrier sooner. By having high-protein, well-rounded meals, you can keep your focus strong and steady throughout the day.
