15 Easy-to-Make Lunches Under 400 Calories

I’m a snacker. I’d much rather eat a few snacks throughout the day and have a lighter lunch instead of one huge meal. I find it helps me stay more energized and keeps my calorie count in control. Planning out healthy lunches for the entire week is a great way to stay on a calorie budget and it makes lunch preparation less of a hassle!
