So for this week’s recipes, we’ve got five insanely easy and healthy foil-packet dinners that will leave you with very little to clean up. Enjoy!

You know the saying, “Abs are made in the kitchen”? Well, we took it to heart and asked five Philly fitness pros (who all have stellar abs, if I do say so myself) what they pack for lunch. And, man, did they give us some serious brown-bag-lunch inspiration: From sesame-crusted salmon to turkey roll-ups to taco salads, these personal trainers and fitness instructors are eating well.

If you’re looking to replicate their healthy eats, the takeaway that I gathered from them is this: Pretty much all of them said they like for their lunches to be high in protein and healthy fats, most of them paired protein with a side of veggies or fruit. Spinach popped up on a few of their plates, and you’ll note that not a single sandwich made the cut—or any starches really, aside from a sweet potato. Check out their photos and more details about their lunch routines below, and watch the brown-bag-lunch inspiration flow in.
