Healthy Cold Lunch Recipes
Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls
Damn Delicious’s Greek chicken meal prep bowls are a little time intensive on the prep side, but well worth the effort. As with all of the recipes here, the time you put in gets you lunch for the whole week. You’ll appreciate having flavorful Greek chicken topped with fresh cucumber salad and tzatziki sauce every day.
Spinach, Apple, Gorgonzola, and Candied Walnuts Salad
Like many people, I have no trouble eating salads everyday through the summer when there is a wealth of fresh ingredients readily available. I’m a little less inspired during the depths of winter. Inside the Rustic Kitchen’s spinach, apple, gorgonzola, and candied walnuts salad to the rescue. It’s well worth the effort of making a batch of candied walnuts for it.
Rainbow Hummus Wraps
Tasty Thin’s rainbow hummus wraps are another fantastic rainbow lunch dish bursting with flavor and color. Nikki has several variation ideas to keep this wrap recipe fresh and interesting for work lunches week after week.
The Best Egg Salad Ever
When you hard-boil eggs for the week ahead, How Sweet Eat’s egg salad is always a good work lunch recipe. You can make a big batch and switch up how you eat it. One day pack a couple of pieces of bread to make a sandwich. The day next have it over a small green salad. The following day scoop it up with tortilla or kettle chips (my favorite). You get the idea.
Lima Bean Salad
I know, lima beans make me want to cringe, too. Kitchen Confidante has completely modernized the concept of a lime bean salad with tons of fresh veggies and a tangy lemon mustard dressing. You won’t even think about the fact that you’re eating lima beans.
Caprese Cold Noodle Meal Prep
Meal Plan Addict’s Caprese cold noodle meal prep is another fantastic way to enjoy Caprese as an easy, filling work lunch. It’s no secret that Caprese is perfect with pasta, and I love that Steph has found a way to turn the pairing into a cold lunch.
Chicken Cobb Mason Jar Salad
I didn’t want to include too many mason jar salads in my quick healthy lunch ideas for work list because they’re a little overplayed these days. But after Jessica’s Greek orzo salad, A Sweet Pea Chef’s chicken Cobb is at the top of my list. It’s hard to go wrong with a good Cobb salad. Lacey takes it over the top with homemade Ranch dressing.
Vegan Quinoa Sushi Bowl
Even easier than making your own sushi, you can make Beauty Bite’s vegan quinoa sushi bowl, which comes together much more quickly and tastes just as good. You would never imagine that this recipe is vegan, and you won’t miss the meat at all. I would double it for meal prep to get a week’s worth of lunches out of a single prep session.
Bruschetta Pasta Salad
Lovely Little Kitchen’s bruschetta pasta salad has everything you love about bruschetta in a quick, tasty pasta salad. For a work lunch, I’d add chicken or even leftover grilled steak.
Turkey Ranch Wraps
Turkey ranch (or chicken ranch!) is a tried and true combination that works so well as a wrap. Garnish and Glaze’s turkey ranch wraps are filled with spinach, fresh veggies, feta, and a creamy Greek yogurt Ranch spread.
