Ask any survival expert, “How do I stay alive in the wilderness?”

The inevitable answer: “Step 1: Be prepared.”

The same goes with your lunch.

If you want to eat right, you always need to be one step ahead of Taco Bell.

Whether you’re flying, road-tripping, going to school, or just getting ready for work, packing your lunch is for winners.

Want to be lean, healthy and happy for the rest of your life? Don’t get stuck eating from truck stops, corner stores, airports, or – even worse – hospitals.

When we’re traveling, we often pack breakfast, lunch and dinner.

It might look something like this: Fatty Coffee in the morning, green smoothie for lunch and a satisfying Wild salad or meat and veggie entree for dinner.

On our recent trip to Arizona and LA, here’s what we packed up:

  • Green Smoothies in 2 quart-size mason jars: Green smoothies are great because they’re convenient and provide  a variety of nutrients. This one had celery, kale, soaked chia seeds, superfood greens powder, vitamin c, collagen, goat whey protein, parsley, and olive oil.
  • Chopped Salad with baby kale, cherry tomatoes, nitrite-free/organic ham, hard boiled eggs, cucumber, red onion, parmesan cheese, and sunflower seeds with a side jar of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  • Collard Greens Wrap with leftover steak, grilled onions, bacon, goat cheese, hot sauce, and thin slices of zucchini wrapped up in collard green leaves.
  • Snacks include, celery sticks and a small jar of nut butter, 2 avocados (to be chopped up and eaten with salt or added to the salads and wraps), 2 cucumbers, a container with sauerkraut, and homemade mixed nuts.

So want to pack a Wild lunch for work, school, travel, or a picnic with your family?

Here are 9 satisfying Wild, fat-burning, packable meals to keep you fit as a fiddle.


Hipsters will love this one. Pack diced veggies, leftover meats (or unprocessed deli meats), grass-fed cheese, eggs, and greens into a large mason jar. This one is an Italian Antipasto Salad—but any salad will do.

Bring a small jar of your favorite Wild dressing (or just olive oil and vinegar), pour it over the salad, put the lid on and shake. Pour it out onto a plate. Alternately, pack your salad in a glass container with tightly fitted lid, or reuse that plastic container your greens came in from the store.

Make double batches of your dinners so you can pop a portion into a container for lunch tomorrow. It’s that easy.

This is leftover Bacon and Brussels Hash with boiled eggs on top—and it’s just as good cold as it is hot.

Use big collard green leaves as a wrap for your favorite Wild fillings (steamed or raw).

Try leftover meatballs or burgers, bacon and turkey, taco meat with avocado and salsa, shredded chicken with buffalo sauce, even canned salmon or tuna. The possibilities are endless. Just remember to remove the large fibrous stem from the collard green for easier rolling.

Directions for Rolling:

  • First, lay collard green leaves on large rectangle piece of foil (big enough to wrap around a burrito), and add a scoop of cooked meat or other toppings into the middle. Top with anything you like… avocado, hot sauce, chopped tomato, cilantro, fried egg, etc.
  • Next, fold the sides of the collard green leaf in so they nearly touch, then use your thumbs to bring up the bottom of the leaf and roll it up like a burrito. Wrap the foil around the burrito by folding in the sides, and then folding up the bottom and rolling it up around the collard green burrito.
  • Store in the refrigerator as a grab-and-go lunch.

Invest in a great wide-mouth soup thermos. Make a big pot of soup or chili, heat it on the stove in the morning and pour it into your thermos. Voila—lunch is served. (You can find the recipe for this soup on page 222 of The Wild Diet, or in the Wild Kitchen App.)

If you don’t have leftovers or much time, you can still throw together a healthy lunch. Just wash and cut raw veggies, mash an avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice (to make quick guacamole), and sprinkle two boiled eggs with salt and smoked paprika.

Wrap up leftover meats or smoked salmon in a roasted seaweed wrapper with goat cheese or avocado and thinly sliced veggies. No need to cut it into typical sushi rolls—just eat it like a wrap!

Cold chicken is the ultimate lunch box food.

Roast a big batch of chicken legs or double-up the recipe on wing night. Pack a couple drumsticks or a half dozen hot wings in your cooler lunch box. Serve with cut veggies or a quick salad with oil and vinegar.

Grab a can of wild caught tuna or salmon and you’ll always have a ready-to-rock lunch. Just cut up some celery, open the can, and fill your celery boats with tuna.

(Due to the unique aromatic characteristics of fish, we don’t recommend this recipe for plane rides… or roller coasters.)

Whip up a super low-carb green smoothie in the morning and pack it in a thermos or large mason jar. High-powered Vitamix and Blentec blenders make the best smoothies, but even the inexpensive blenders will do the trick.

Green smoothies will last up to 24 hours in the refrigerators. Just give it a good shake before drinking.

  1. Ellen H Saul says:

    When I went traveling for several days and wouldn’t have a blender, I blended my fruit & veggies with coconut oil, cinnamon, lemon juice and froze it in baggies in serving sizes. In other baggies I put a serving size of protein powder and powdered greens. A couple of hours before I needed the smoothie, I set out the frozen baggie to thaw (or ran it under warm water if I forgot). A wide-mouth bottle works better than a small mouth bottle! I sure enjoyed having the food I wanted each day!

  2. Thank you for the helpful information. It is always nice to know that there are alternatives available. I appreciate the effort that you and your wife put into the lives of others on a daily basis.

  3. This post is just what I have been needing for a long time now. I work on the run with a day job and a business after hours. I get some great exercise on my bike ride to and from work everyday because I don’t have a car. When I am not on the bike I am walking. As you can imagine the hardest thing for me to do is prepare healthy wild meals. I prepare food both at home and at work since we have a full kitchen. Most of my meal preparation is done at work. I am going to take your ideas and see what I can do with them to make extra from my meals to take with me on the run. I typically eat all three meals at work since I simply stop working my day job and take off my day job hat and put on my after hours business hat and keep moving until I climb on my bike and come back home usually after 8:00 at night. Thanks Abel, I really appreciate this post.

  4. Incredible! I pray one day I’ll be half this organized when it comes to our on the go meals. Tomorrow I’ll start by taking a salad in a mason jar to the pool! Thanks for the inspiration. Also, how do I find the free meal planning app you talked about on your podcast? Thanks!

  5. What a nice post.. I forget about stuff like this. I usually (almost always) just pack leftovers 😀 I will be trying nori wraps though…….

  6. I see breakfast is interchangeable with bone broth/smoothie/fatty coffee. Question, the joint/energy benefits from bone broth, can we have a cup daily of broth in edition to our smoothie? Several hours apart. Thank you, Tammie
