When you’re working from home and lunchtime rolls around, it can be easy to fall into a rut of the same old uninspired sandwiches and bland salads.
Lucky for you, we’ve got some lunch recipes that will help you whip up something equal parts healthy, easy, and delicious that will power you through that notorious mid-afternoon slump!
What follows are some of our very favourite easy lunch ideas. Or, if you haven’t had breakfast yet, here are some ideas to try out.
Ask anyone to name some healthy lunch ideas and salads are going to run away with the top spot pretty much every time. And with good reason, because what could be healthier than a big plate of greens? But because of their high marks for healthy, salads have a bad reputation for being boring and bland.
Lucky for you, we have a few pointers for styling up your salads:
This not only ensures a wide variety of nutrients in your daily diet but also guarantees you won’t get stuck in that salad rut. And as an added bonus, you’ll have some colourful content to post on your Instagram at lunchtime!
The good news is that you can make a delicious, healthy vinaigrette with just three or four ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen.
Just mix your favourite olive oil with freshly-squeezed lemon juice or balsamic vinegar. From there, just let your creativity and taste buds take over!
Whether you call them goddess bowls, buddha bowls, poke bowls or even burrito bowls, there’s no denying the fact that this humble kitchen serving vessel has experienced a major glow-up over the past few years.
We’ve covered just a few of the trendy names that fall under the umbrella of this culinary phenomenon, but before you get overwhelmed, the idea is very simple!
It’s a lunch option that tastes as vibrant as it looks! Best of all, you can prep a whole batch of different ingredients at the beginning of the week so you can just assemble and enjoy when lunchtime rolls around.
Sandwiches have long been a lunchtime staple due to their easy portability and the fact you don’t need any eating utensils — just a hand and a mouth.
The thing with sandwiches is that while delicious and versatile in many respects, the more traditional versions aren’t always that healthy. So, if you grew up with processed deli meat and cheese crammed between two mayonnaise-slathered slices of white bread, it may be time to rethink your sandwich game.
A healthy, whole-wheat wrap can be a great alternative to sliced bread. Wraps are also fantastically versatile and it’s easy and fun to come up with new ingredient pairings.
Vietnamese spring rolls are another easy lunch idea that comes with a fantastic opportunity to incorporate a pile of fresh veggies into your diet in a way that’s undeniably delicious. And if you’re trying to cut down on the carbs, lettuce wraps are all the rage as a carb-free vehicle for your favourite lunch recipes like tuna, chicken, or even seafood salad.
