If you love scrambled eggs, you will love this sandwich. Many of us grew up with Western Sandwiches but you don't see them much anymore! This is the perfect breakfast, lunch or supper sandwich.
Another old favorite but with a twist. Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches - but with an egg on top. You won't regret trying this one! This is another recipe I sometimes make for dinner, not just lunch!
Love Asparagus? This recipe is my copycat of an appetizer asparagus salad from an Italian restaurant I loved to go to. Now, when asparagus is in season, it is lunch. There is nothing better than this salad if you are an asparagus and feta lover!
Shrimp Sandwich Roll
How about a delicious shrimp sandwich roll? Personally, this would be a treat-for-me and that special person in my life weekend lunch.
Spinach Ricotta Pita Bread Pizza
Looking for a vegetarian lunch? Love spinach? Here is a fabulous lunch idea for you! I love the cheese for just enough protein.
Classic Tuna Egg Salad
Love egg sandwiches? Love tuna sandwiches? Put them together. Here is a delicious tuna and egg salad sandwich that is divine!
Easy Veggie Flatbread Pizza
is another vegetarian lunch idea. This flatbread pizza is delicious and quick and easy to make. The bonus is it's vegetarian!
Lemon Parmesan Zucchini Noodles
Got zucchini? Too many in the garden or bought some and don't know what to do? Here is a simple vegetarian zucchini noodle dish that you will make over and over again. This is also a great dinner idea!
Bruschetta Salad with Grilled Chicken
I love tomatoes! And sometimes I have too many tomatoes because in my garden they seem to get ripe at the same time. Or, in the winter, I buy too many. Here is a fantastic lunch or dinner option that you will love! You know of course that turkey can easily be substituted for chicken!
Love pizza but trying to go low carb.? This one is for you! Yes, a low carb pizza frittata, just for you!
Easy Italian Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza Frittata
Five Low Carb Cauliflower Salads in a Jar
Feel like a low carb salad? You know cauliflower is so popular right now. Delicious, inexpensive and so very portable. Try one of these low carb cauliflower salads in a jar. I personally use up a lot of cucumbers in my jarred salads. Such an easy lunch idea! Less lettuce, more other yummy veggies.
Dilly Tuna Salad
Tuna salad is always great on a sandwich. But, why not be all fancy and serve it on crackers? Perfect lunch, snack or as an appetizer! I prefer this over chicken salad any day!
Healthy Mug Soup
A great to-go lunch made by my friend for her husband to take to work. A fresh and easy-to-make hot lunch by just adding hot water. I think I'm going to make some for my lunches for the next few days! Love healthy food lunches!
Lunchbox Perfect Apple Salad
Apple salad? Yes, this is a great adult lunch that is a refreshing change. Guessing the kids will want some too!
Broccoli Korean BBQ Dipping Sauce
Korean BBQ sauce to dip your broccoli in? Yup, I'd eat more broccoli that way! I suspect this is a special family recipe that you will love! A little rice and it's a vegetarian meal! Or, if you are looking for a fun side to serve with beef, this is it!
Grilled Zucchini and Pesto Pizza
Because we just can't get enough pizza ideas! Ummmmm, grilled zucchini with pesto pizza will hit the spot.
Cobb Salad Sub Recipe
I love cobb salads. Never thought of making a sub though! All those delicious foods in a sub. Need to use up some avocados? This is the recipe!
Shrimp Po' Boy with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli
I would make this for dinner and then take the leftovers for lunch! Because I LOVE leftovers for lunch. Who doesn't?
Naan Shrimp Wraps with Creamy Cajun Dressing
If you are a shrimp lover, here is a delicious wrap with just a bit of zing. When you are tired of the same old thing, this recipe is for you!
Tomato and Kielbasa Salad
I love tomatoes! This is my go-to lunch in the summer. Especially when tomatoes are in the garden or in season at the farmer's market or grocery store.
These can certainly also be used as family lunch ideas at home! However, we just wanted to share lunch for adults. As you know meals are often centered around what the kids eat or like.
Hope these have been helpful!
