What are some healthy lunches I can eat at college?

 

A healthy lunch should include: veggies, fruit, whole grains, and some lean protein. 

Take advantage of the dining hall salad bar and load up a plate with lettuce and tons of fresh veggies and fruit. Couple this with a sandwich made with whole grain bread and lean protein sources such as turkey, grilled chicken, and lean roast beef. This is a healthy lunch combination to fuel you until dinner.
