A collection of lunch recipes that are healthy and tasty. Many of these lunch ideas can be batch-cooked in advance for the week ahead, and most are portable. For tested recipes for soups, salads, sandwiches and more, look no further.

Lunch is often the most overlooked meal of the day, eaten hastily between other tasks, maybe even zoned out at your desk at work, or perhaps even skipped altogether. Whether it be leftover dinner, a mediocre sandwich you threw together the night before or an overpriced salad from whole foods. You’ll find plenty of inspiration for lunches on the go that are easy to make, delicious and won’t put a serious dent in your bank account. Short on time? Don’t go hungry! Try the chicken caesar wrap that you can eat with one hand while you rush to your next destination. Or, if you’re eating lunch at home, treat yourself to something hearty like spice-roasted cauliflower, kale and chickpea salad or hot and sour Thai chicken noodle soup, sure to pump you full of energy to tackle the second half of the day.
