With work, family, chores – and all other things going on in our lives, it can be hard to put “packing a healthy lunch” at the top of the priority list. But having the same frozen meal or canned soup every day can get boring—and going out to eat quickly becomes unhealthy and expensive. However, making a healthy and tasty lunch doesn’t have to take up much time.
One trick is making multiple lunches at a time or making something in large quantities at the beginning of the week. For instance, instead of making a side salad every morning before work, make 5 on Sunday. If chopped celery or carrots are a daily staple, cut up 5 days’ worth at the beginning of the week as well. Below are 5 tasty, healthy, and easy lunch ideas that can be prepared on Sunday and eaten all week:
Lasagna and Veggies
Lasagna, if made right, can be a tasty and healthy lunch. This is also something that can be made at the beginning of the week and eaten throughout the week. Minor substitutes like using chicken instead of ground beef, and adding veggies can make this a healthier meal. Cut up carrots, celery, olives, cucumbers – or whatever veggies you like with ranch or hummus. Check out this Spinach Lasagna Rolls recipe.
Avocado and Edamame Salad
This salad can be made at the beginning of the week as long as the dressing is added separately, and will last a few days. This salad is packed with flavor, veggies and protein. Check out the recipe here.

Egg Salad and a Side Salad
Egg salad can easily be made in large quantities and eaten throughout the week. To make it even healthier, choose healthy whole wheat bread or eat it on top of some leafy greens. Adding a side salad will add in the extra veggies you need. Check out this tomato basil egg salad recipe.
Chicken and Hummus Wrap
Wraps are a great low-carb alternative to sandwiches. This chicken and hummus wrap is easy to make, healthy, and packed with protein. Try paring it with fruit, such as apples or grapes.
Soup is another option that can be made in large quantities at the beginning of the week. Minestrone soup is packed full of veggies, pasta, and flavor. Check out the recipe here. Try pairing the soup with fruit or crackers.
