Who Said Work Lunches Have to be Boring?!

Everyone looks forward to that part of the workday when the clock strikes lunchtime.

Even if you have to eat lunch at your desk because you’ve got so much work to do, these dishes will ensure your lunchbox is never accused of being boring even if you’re all work and no play.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Boil up some pasta the night before (penne or elbow macaroni work great with this) and add chopped veggies like baby tomatoes, cucumber, olives, and peppers.

Crumble in some feta and you’re good to go. You can also make a quick vinaigrette using olive oil vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper, or feel free to add your favorite dressing.

Hummus Veggie Wraps

Wraps are sandwiches’ cooler older brother. Spread your favorite store-bought wrap with a good helping of hummus and layer with whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. We particularly like putting in raw julienne carrots and slightly boiled broccoli to add some crunch!

Single-Jar Salad

Everyone loves lunch they can make the night before. For this salad — that is perfectly easy to store in the fridge overnight — start with the dressing as the first layer. Then add your chopped ingredients before finishing off with your greens. How about trying green apples, radishes, walnuts, and lettuce for something fresh with both tangy and spicy?
