4 Healthy Lunch Ideas to Keep Your Day Going


We already talked about the importance of breakfast and we went over some healthy breakfast ideas, but now it’s time to talk lunch. With our days getting busier and busier, we sometimes skip out on lunch. If you’re one of those people skipping out on lunch, we’re here to tell you that eating lunch has several benefits.

Eating lunch re-energizes your body and can help you feel refreshed so you’re better able to continue with your day without feeling sluggish. Skipping lunch can cause hunger, low blood sugar, and irritability. On top of that, saving all of your caloric intake for dinner can even cause unwanted weight gain.

One of the main reasons people skip lunch is the lack of time and busy schedules. 3Natives has some great healthy lunch ideas, which you can enjoy at all our locations! These food options are both quick and healthy so that you don’t need to sacrifice anything come lunchtime.

Acai Bowls

Acai bowls have gained popularity because of how refreshing they are and because of their numerous health benefits. These bowls are made with acai berries, which are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats. Acai bowls are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help boost your immune system and give you energy for the rest of your day. Because of all of the good nutrients you get from acai bowls, we recommend them as a quick and delicious lunch option.

Acai bowls are often topped with a variety of fruits and other toppings to provide essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Some delicious and healthy toppings include fresh fruits, granola, honey, and seeds. 3Natives offers eight different acai bowls, with The Calypso being an option that has all kinds of different toppings such as berries and chia seeds. You can also modify our bowls to your liking!


Sandwiches are a classic lunch option that allows for endless creativity and versatility. One of the keys to making this a healthy lunch idea is to use multigrain or whole-grain bread.

You’ll also want to choose a healthy protein as the main element of your sandwich. Tuna, hard-boiled eggs, chicken, or turkey are all great options. Sandwiches offer a balanced combo of carbohydrates from bread, protein from meats or other sources, and fiber from vegetables.

Your sandwich should be colorful. Include vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, cucumbers, and bell peppers for added fiber and vitamins. You can also consider using spreads or dressings such as hummus, avocado, or mustard instead of mayonnaise.

3Natives offers two delicious hot sandwiches that are full of nutrients. Our Tuna Sandwich is on multigrain bread and includes tuna salad, spinach, tomato, and cheese, and our sandwich The Estrada also uses multigrain bread and features hard-boiled egg and avocado ranch dressing.

Healthy Salads

As simple as it may sound, salads are an excellent choice for a filling and nutritious lunch. Salads can be packed with a variety of fresh vegetables, providing all sorts of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that you need during the day.

The vegetables and leafy greens in a salad are high in fiber and can help you with digestion and make you feel full. One of the most important parts of lunch is that you want whatever you’re eating to properly satisfy your hunger. Feeling satisfied and gaining energy will help make the rest of your day a success!

Add a variety of colorful vegetables such as carrots, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and cabbage to your salad. To help make your salad more filling, nutritious, and protein-packed, we recommend eating one that has grilled chicken, hummus, or boiled eggs in it.

Our 3Natives locations offer ten different salad options that make for healthy lunch ideas. Some of our offerings include Thai Chicken, Greek, and Buffalo Chicken salads.


Wraps are a convenient and portable lunch option that is just as delicious as a sandwich but is made with a convenient tortilla instead of bread. They can be made with whole grain, spinach, or gluten-free tortillas, giving you a much healthier alternative to white bread. Those tortilla options provide more nutrients.

What makes wraps such a great option is that they are as healthy as whatever you put in them. We recommend including your favorite healthy protein, such as chicken breast, tuna salad, turkey, or black beans. To accompany the protein, you should have a wrap filled with veggies like lettuce, spinach, carrots, cucumbers, cabbage, and sprouts. Top it off with some dressing or cheese to add extra flavor!

3Natives offers 15 delicious wraps (some of them are hot and pressed!). With offerings like a Chicken Caeser wrap and a Southwest wrap, there is a wrap for everybody’s taste buds. We also offer all of our wraps with a gluten-free tortilla if requested.
