19 Easy-To-Pack Lunches Under 400 Calories

    No more sad brown-bag sandwich.

    If you want to be mindful about the health of your packed lunches, you totally can be without making the same boring thing every day.

    Each of the meals listed here are tasty, healthy, and under 400 calories. Obviously calories aren't the be-all, end-all of health, and depending on your personal goals you might want to eat more than 400 calories for lunch — do what makes the most sense for you. Also worth mentioning: We also looked for meals that were low in sugar (under 20 grams) and had a decent amount of protein (at least 10 grams, but usually a lot more). There are also some vegetarian options, if that's what you're looking for. To figure out nutrition info when it wasn't listed, we used this recipe analyzer.
