Healthy Lunch Recipes For One

Preparing meals for one can sometimes be difficult considering that “standard” recipes typically serve four. And unless you love algebra and fractions, who wants to start recalculating ingredient quantities for everything you make? Not to mention figuring out the best way to quarter an egg (Whisk it, weigh it, divide it by 4).

That’s why we’ve pulled together this collection of single-serving lunch recipes. Whether you’re a household of one or just making a lunch separate from the others in your home, we’ve got a little bit of everything, from your basic—but delicious—soups, salads, and sandwiches, to a little bit fancier—but simple—pastas, grain bowls, and pizzas. There’s more than a month’s worth of recipes to choose from, so say goodbye to lunchtime boredom.
