5 Lunch Recipes You'll Wish You Knew Sooner
By LAURA WILLIAMS BUSTOS, MSED AND KHYATI DAND
Egg Salad with Avocado
The eggs deliver the protein, the avocado delivers healthy fats, and you can choose from an array of carbohydrate options to balance out the meal. The recipe takes only 25 minutes to make and offers a flavor that sits somewhere between traditional egg salad and guacamole.
Cobb Salad
While this recipe takes 35 minutes to make, if you familiarize yourself with your grocery store deli's prepared foods, you might be able to assemble the salad in minutes. Just pick up a rotisserie chicken, pre-packaged hard-boiled eggs, and real bacon crumbles to pull it off.
Lettuce Wraps
This simple lettuce wrap, which can be made with parts of your leftovers, is the perfect way to keep your tastebuds and your wallet happy. Take a little meat and some veggies, add a little dressing, and scoop them into a lettuce leaf to enjoy for lunch.
Basic Tuna Salad
You can use this tuna salad recipe to add protein to a salad, eat with your favorite veggies, or even in a hollowed-out apple. You only need 10 minutes to make the salad, which yields four servings, and you can mix up your recipes to try different ideas.
Easy Egg Salad
For this one, aside from pre-boiled eggs that you can purchase at the grocery store, you just need mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and the bread of your choice. You can pair this egg salad with veggies and a piece of fruit and serve it up in five minutes.
