25 Healthy Make-Ahead Vegetarian Lunches
Can I get a TGIF?! We made it, you guys! Phew!
I know the last thing you’re probably thinking about on a Friday is packing lunch, but Sunday is only a few days away and that happens to be a great time to prep healthy food for the week. :) <that’s my please don’t hate me for being so annoying smile
Often times Brandon and I eat leftovers for lunch but there are always a few days here and there that I like to have something prepped and ready to go. Otherwise I end-up in the frozen section stocking up on a bunch of Amy’s burritos. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE me some Amy’s burritos but I always feel so much better when I have some fresh produce in my diet.
With that in mind, I put together a collection of recipes that are perfect to make ahead of time and pack for lunch. There are lots of bright and colorful salads, veggie burgers (which are great to make for dinner and have leftovers for lunch), sandwiches, and quinoa recipes to choose from. I’ve made almost half of them and I can vouch that they are all delicious and keep well in the fridge for several days.
I hope you find something that inspires you to pass up the microwaveable meals! Happy weekend, friends!
