Updated 04/24/19

To help you reach your health and fitness goals, we tapped Karena and Katrina from Tone It Up for their advice. Here, they'll let you in on all their wellness secrets, as well as a few tips and tricks along the way.

Keeping it lean, clean, and green is the main philosophy for the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan. This means filling your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with lean protein, leafy green veggies, and healthy fats. Sometimes prepping a healthy lunch can be a bit tricky when you're short on time, so we love whipping together lunches that take minutes to make or double as dinner. Lunch prepping doesn't have to take up your entire Sunday—and these easy work lunches prove it. There's a variety of options here too, whether you're looking to go meat-free or avoid gluten—we have it all.

K + Kale Salad

A kale salad is our go-to for lunch. We love how light and satiating it is! Kale is abundant with calcium and potassium, which can help decrease muscle soreness after a workout. We marinate our K + Kale salad overnight to break down the fibers and pack in the flavor.

Buddha Bowl
