Healthy Lunch Ideas To Take To Work

What is a healthy lunch?

I believe a healthy lunch is a meal that contains some grains, some veggies and some protein. I like to use leftovers from dinner as much as I can so if I cook a healthy dinner that means I can eat a healthy lunch the next day too.

Healthy lunch ideas

Here are some of my favourite healthy lunch ideas for you to try. You can prepare these recipes in advance or eat them on the go. Planning your meals in advance can help to ensure you eat something that not only satisfies you but also helps you to feel healthy and energised. Preparing meals ahead of time can also save time and money as well.

Mexican Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

This delicious Mexican salad is great to make in advance because it keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days.

If you have leftover chicken or turkey in the fridge then you can put this recipe together very quickly. It’s fresh and light but will also keep you feeling full throughout the day.

This recipe is cheap and cheerful and using pre cooked chickpeas makes it quick and easy to put together as well.

Super Salad with Goats Cheese & Lentils

Pre cooked lentils are great to add to salads because they are packed with protein which helps you to feel fuller for longer.

Summertime Salmon Quinoa

Quinoa makes a great healthy lunch because it is a complete protein and gluten free too. You can make this recipe for dinner and save leftovers for lunch the next day.

Italian Spelt Pasta Salad

A pasta salad packed with veggies. Serve with cooked chicken or lentils for a more complete meal.

Summer Roasted Veggie Quinoa

Roasted vegetables are a great way to get your 5 a day and serving them with quinoa makes a delicious and nutritious healthy lunch.
