As many of us transition back into the office after working from home, portable lunches are becoming more of a necessity.
Who says lunchboxes are just for kids? These elevated adult lunchboxes require very little prep and can be made ahead of time to enjoy throughout the week. Preparing your own meals at home not only is more cost effective, it is typically more nutritious too since you control the ingredients.
Try these 6 elevated lunch boxes and be sure to tag me on Instagram if you make them!
1. Taco Box
Tacos – without the tortilla! This taco box is made with classic ingredients like beans, corn and tomato plus a keto-friendly twist. Instead of tortillas, I used Hilo Life Almond Flour Tortilla Style Chips which come in three “noshtalgic” chip flavors – nacho cheese, ranch and spicy salsa. They also offer crispy nut and cheese snack mixes with 4 grams or less of net carbs per snack available in bold flavors like Really Ranchy, Super Cheese and Piece-a-Pizza. All the Hilo Life snacks have 0 grams of added sugar and are keto-friendly. Find them at Costco in Northeast and Southeast (check out https://hilolife.com/pages/store-locator to find a location near you).

2. BLT Box
Try this lower carb take on a BLT that doesn’t skip on crunch. I simply filled lettuce cups with BLT fixings – bacon, tomato & a yogurt ranch.
3-5 Lettuce cups
2 slices bacon or turkey bacon
½ medium tomato, sliced
1 tbsp yogurt ranch
3. Greek Salad Box
This Greek salad is so easy to make and packed with delicious flavors from dill, red onion and creamy kalamata olives. Mix in the hummus before you are ready to eat for some creamy goodness.
4. Deli Skewers Box
If you recently made a trip to your deli, try these protein-packed skewers for a lunch option using your fresh meat, cheese and produce.

5. Bell Pepper Tuna Melt Box
Tuna melts are a classic comfort food. These elevated bell pepper melts embody that same nostalgic flavor but with added crunch and half the carbs.
1 medium bell pepper
Tuna salad – hummus, red onion, celery & cilantro
6. Yogurt Parfait Box
If you are craving sweet, try this yogurt parfait box. Topped with granola and mixed nuts for healthy crunch and fresh berries on the side for natural sweetness.
