I read a lot of good recipes

Similar to the idea below, I like to make burrito bowls (you can buy pre-made vegetarian refried beans- trader joe's has pretty good ones) and Asian-inspired bowls with peanut sauce and prepared baked tofu (this is a recent 'find' for me and I am on board! I prefer the nasoya brand to TJ personally, but see what you like!).

Sometimes I make a batch of falafel (which is pretty fast as long as you pre-soak the chick peas) and then pack with hummus and veg, with or without a pita.

Veggie loaded fresh rolls can be quick to prep if you have the veggies prepared- you just have to dip the rice paper into water and load up with veggies and any protein you choose to use. Just pack with a side of dipping sauce and you're good to go!

Nut butter + fruit sandwiches sometimes hit the spot :)

I'm a fan of quinoa bowls. Top quinoa with your favorite veggies for a good lunch.
Season the quinoa with chili powder, turmeric and cumin, and add black beans, corn, and tomatoes along with your favorite green veggie for a yummy dish.
Season with basil and oregano. Add tomatoes, a green if you'd like, chick peas and diced mozzarella for another good dish.
I add greens - spinach, kale or whatever to just about everything. Just my preference. I might use low sodium V8 as a sauce in one of these bowls.

Prep a pot of soup on the weekend. 1 pound of meat, 1 quart of broth (chicken, beef etc), a bunch of bags of pre-cut veggies (kale, cabbage slaw, diced cauliflower/broccoli, the onion-carrot-celery mix, etc) . Salt and pepper

Brown the meat (can be browned by baking in the oven. Toss all ingredients in a big pot. Bring to a simmer, put lid on, cook for 2 hours on low. Check if it needs more salt and pepper.

Toss in small can of diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil again, lower heat, and then simmer for 30 minutes.

Use no seasonings and rely on flavors or add spices you like. A sprinkle of chili peppers if you like.

For me, this usually makes about 8-10 servings of 1.5 cups. With all the veggies, it can be dense. The extra can be frozen in servings size and then microwaved for lunches.

Plain greek yogurt with 1 tablespoon of agave nectar to sweeten each 4 oz of yogurt, and fresh fruit. I like pineapple ring slices (1 per 4 oz of yogurt) or 1/4 peach per 4 oz of yogurt, or 1/2 plumb, or 2-3 strawberries per 4 oz of yogurt etc.

Chef salad - 1 cup of baby spinach/red leaf lettuce mix, 1 sliced hard boiled egg, 1 oz of raisins, 10 oz of shredded carrots, 1 oz of shredded colby jack cheese, 1-2 oz of ham (I dice up a ham steak). I buy the carrots shredded already, the hard boiled eggs already prepared at the store, the ham steaks that are already cooked. With an egg cutter, I can make this salad in minutes.

Home made pita chips www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/patrick-and-gi
, hummis from the store and a simple salad with 1 cup of red leaf lettuce/spinach mix and a raspberry vinigarette.

1 can of tuna fish with a little olive oil mayo, maybe a little pickle relish, or mustard, salt and pepper on an open face whole grain bread slice with some fruit.

1 cup Red leaf lettuce/spinach mix with 8 fresh raspberries, 1 oz of crumbled feta cheese, .5 oz of sliced almonds, 2-3 oz of diced grilled chicken breast with a raspberry vinaigrette.

1 slice of whole grain bread, 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter (just salt and peanuts peanut butter...not the mass marketed stuff with sugar and palm oil added), or a different nut butter, 1/2 of a banana on top, drizzled with a kiss of agave nectar with a glass of almond milk (and a bottle of water LOL).

Cut colby jack cheese sticks in half lengthwise. take a slice of deli lunch meat and add a mustard you like. Maybe a kiss of olive oil mayo too. Wrap that around the cheese, then wrap that in 2 leaf lettuce leafs. Have that with some fruit.

Sometimes, the quickest, fastest lunch is just something leftover from dinner the night before. Or cook enough at dinner one night, to leave you leftovers for several lunches.

I gave up meat a while back and am looking for quick and fast, and of course healthy options for lunch.

So far, I've been a fan of hummus and was going to make a wrap with spinach and tomatoes.... at least that's the plan for today's lunch.
