Chicken Hummus Salad – Boost your simple lunchbox!
This is one of my favorite lunches and super duper simple! A lunch I can easily put together in minutes while I have to make everyone else’s lunches. I will be totally honest, I’m usually great at making lunches for my kids and hubby but when it comes to myself, I’m burnout out of making lunches and would rather just find a grab/grazing lunch/snack….Aka, look in the frig and see what looks good. Could be a cheese stick and an energy bites along with whatever my daughter doesn’t eat. Maybe not the most nutritionally balanced but I need to keep telling myself if I just takes 5 minutes or less for myself I will eat much better for the day, sigh.
What’s in my lunchbox?
- Chicken salad: 1/2 cup cooked chicken + 2 tbsp hummus + 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1 square Zoet 70% dark chocolate + 5 whole cashews
- 1/2 orange
- Jicama and cucumer sticks (feel free to swap with mini sweet peppers)
- 7 Crunchmastet mult-grain 5-seed crackers
Here are the nutrition facts from My Fitness Pal app.
I tend to make two servings at a time with 12.5 ounces of pre-cooked chicken and one single-serving size of original organic hummus.
I love these crackers! I bought this box at Sam’s for $7.62. One serving is 14 crackers (Make note in my lunchbox, I use a half serving) 140 calories; 5 g fat; 110 mg sodium; 20 g carbohydrates; 2 g fiber; 0 g sugar; 3 g fiber; 6% calcium; 8% iron.
The lunchbox is what I used for my kids lunches but every once and awhile I use them for myself. I bought them on Amazon: Snug Kids Bento Lunch Box with Leak Proof Liquid Section for Children and Adults.
This lunch is wholesome, filling, nutritious and satisfies every sweet/salty/savory/crunchy-tooth. I hope this inspires you to eat better for a healthier you!😘 Plus, it is delicious! Enjoy!
