Lunch ideas

I enjoy lunch so much because I take my own and try to make it extraordinarily good. Oftentimes, it’s leftovers from a terrific dinner, but other times it’s a great sandwich or salad. Here are some ideas for lunches for those weeks when you’re looking for something different:

Sandwiches:

  • Egg salad
  • Chicken salad
  • Chicken curry
  • Scrambled egg with crumbled bacon
  • BLT
  • Roast beef, provolone and tomato
  • Ham and swiss on a croissant

Salads:

  • Spinach and red grapes
  • Leafy greens mix, cheese, tomatoes, crackers
  • Make your own simple dressings
  • Make your own croutons

Pizza

Tacos

Burritos

Chili

Stir fry and rice

Sweet Italian sausage with grilled onions

Casserole leftovers

Depending upon the appliances available at your work, you may have to get more creative. But lots of offices have refrigerators, microwaves and mini ovens available for use. If you cook at home and then bring items to reheat at work, you can save a ton of money and still have a great lunch. Remember to also bring energy snacks for the afternoon so you aren’t tempted by vending machines or snack bars.
