Protein-Packed Lunch

Protein-Packed Lunch Box Recipe:


  • Cheese slices (cheddar, Swiss, or your preferred type)
  • Hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved
  • Almonds or your choice of nuts
  • Chicken breast, cooked and cubed (or substitute with lunch meat, jerky, salami, etc.)
  • Cucumber, sliced
  • Clementines (optional)


  1. Prepare the Protein Elements:
    • Cook the chicken breast if not already cooked. Season it with your favorite spices for added flavor.
    • Peel and halve the hard-boiled eggs.
  2. Assemble the Lunch Boxes:
    • Start by arranging the cheese slices in one compartment of your lunch box. You can fold or stack them neatly.
    • Place the hard-boiled egg halves in another compartment. Ensure they’re not crowded to prevent sticking.
    • Add a handful of almonds or your preferred nuts to a separate compartment. Make sure it’s sealed to avoid spillage.
    • In another compartment, place the cubed chicken breast or your chosen meat option. If using lunch meat or salami, roll or fold them neatly.
    • Fill another compartment with sliced cucumbers. These will provide a refreshing crunch.
    • Optionally, add clementines to the lunch box or pack them separately.
  3. Pack and Store:
    • Once assembled, securely close the lunch box to keep everything fresh.
    • If you’re packing these boxes for multiple days, store them in the refrigerator. However, if you’re preparing them for the same day, you can keep them at room temperature until lunchtime.
  4. Enjoy:
    • When it’s time to eat, simply open your lunch box and enjoy the protein-packed goodness! Pair it with the clementines for a balanced and satisfying meal.


  • Feel free to customize the ingredients according to your preferences and dietary restrictions. You can switch out the cheese, nuts, meat, and fruits based on what you enjoy or have available.
  • Ensure proper food safety practices when preparing and storing the ingredients, especially if packing for consumption later in the day or on subsequent days.
  • These homemade protein boxes are not only delicious but also convenient for busy weekdays or on-the-go lunches. Enjoy!
