7 Easy Lunches You Can Pack for Work

It’s hard enough figuring out what to eat when you’re out with friends, but eating at the office poses even more challenges. Bringing the same sandwich day after day gets boring, and heating up last night’s seafood leftovers leads to some serious side-eye from your coworkers. There’s also the option of ordering your lunch each day, but of course, that gets pricey. With these challenges in mind, we did some digging and found seven easy lunches you can pack for work.

1. Feta, Avocado & Hummus Quesadillas

This vegetarian option is ridiculously quick to make. Plus, if you’re more of a meat lover, there’s no reason why you can’t quickly add in some grilled chicken! This site includes a super quick and simple recipe for a homemade hummus, but you can always opt for a store-bought version to shave off even more time.

2. Chicken & Avocado Wrap

This recipe only requires 15 minutes of your time. Of course, you can always cut down that time even more by using pre-cooked chicken. Either way, this is a perfect filling lunch for your workday.

3. Cucumber Quinoa Salad

It’s vegetarian. It’s gluten-free. And it’s a total step up from your typical salad. We recommend packing the dressing in its own container until you’re ready to dig in.

4. Vegan Burrito Bowl

A packable lunch you can whip up in just 7 minutes? Count us in! This recipe includes instructions for making your own guac (yum!), but – once again – you can opt for premade guac on an extra busy morning.

5. BLT Salad

Salads are pretty classic office lunches, and we totally get why. They’re quick, easy, and can definitely be filling just as long as they have the right ingredients. We love this salad’s play on a BLT sandwich, and for an added layer, why not add some cooked turkey?

6. Greek Pasta Salad

Pasta dishes are always a favorite, but it’s not always easy calling dibs on the office microwave when lunchtime rolls around. That’s why we love the idea of bringing a cold pasta salad instead.

7. Turkey Roll-Ups

There’s nothing wrong with bringing a turkey sandwich for lunch, but we think these turkey roll-ups are next-level. They’re easy to make and a totally mess-free option for if you’re eating right at your desk.
