Lunchcover

Do you get tired of having the same lunches over and over again? I know I do, and I sometimes even decide to skip lunch when I’m too lazy to make anything…NOT A HEALTHY HABIT! I am constantly in search of healthy lunch ideas that’ll give me the motivation to make lunch and eat healthily. 

Lately, I’ve been loving these three recipes that I seem to repeat throughout the week. These recipes are super quick and easy to incorporate into your routine. They also don’t require a lot of preparation so if you have limited time for lunch, these will work! All recipes are pescatarian based meals. That means no chicken, beef, pork, lamb, etc. Only tuna and eggs since those are my go-to protein sources for lunch. 

Now let’s get to the recipes!

Blueberry & Avocado Salad

Lunchsalad

This salad has been the newest addition to my lunches. It’s a spinach based salad and includes blueberries, avocado, walnuts, and hard-boiled eggs. For the dressing, I will combine a caesar and balsamic vinaigrette since I’m not always a fan of plain caesar dressing. Of course, the dressing is your preference and you can choose whatever you want! I’m really loving this salad because it’s so simple yet screams summer. It reminds me of the apple walnut or strawberry salads that I love to have whenever I go out for lunch. This salad is full of healthy fats and protein while also being a light meal. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups spinach

  • Handful of blueberries

  • Half of an avocado

  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts

  • 2 boiled eggs

  • 1 tbsp caesar dressing

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette

Instructions:

  1. Add spinach, blueberries, and walnuts into a bowl.
  2. Slice the avocado and hard boiled eggs, and then add to the bowl.
  3. Dress the salad with the caesar and balsamic dressing and enjoy!

Greek Salad with Tuna

Tunalunch

This salad is an oldie but a goodie and a great way to eat your vegetables! I feel like I’m always struggling to eat enough vegetables, but this lunch helps a lot and puts me back on track. With tomatoes, cucumber, and feta, it’s super fresh yet very filling. I add tuna as a protein source so I can make this salad more into a meal. However, it can always be a refreshing afternoon snack or appetizer for dinner if you decide not to add protein. For the dressing, I use balsamic vinaigrette. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of chopped grape tomatoes

  • 1 cup of chopped cucumber

  • 1/4 cup feta 

  • 4 oz drained tuna w/ tbsp of mayo

  • 1 tbsp of balsamic vinaigrette

Instructions:

  1. Chop up tomatoes, cucumber, and.
  2. Combine chopped ingredients into a bowl, add feta and tuna.
  3. Dress the salad with the balsamic vinaigrette and mix.

Tuna Melt

Lunchtuna

Love, love, love this lunch. It’s always been my go-to, however, mine isn’t your basic tuna melt. I’d have to say it’s a mix between a tuna melt and avocado toast. It fulfills all of my cravings when it comes to bread, cheese, and avocado. I also add red pepper flakes since I’m always adding some sort of spice to my meals. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 slice of bread (I use ezekiel bread)

  • Half of an avocado

  • 4 oz drained tuna w/ tbsp of mayo

  • 1 slice on munster cheese

  • Some red pepper flakes

Instructions:

  1. Slightly toast your bread.

  2.  Mash up the avocado and spread it on your toast.

  3. Top the toast with tuna and then cheese.

  4. Toast until cheese is melted.

  5. Sprinkle red pepper flakes and enjoy!   

I hope you can enjoy all of the these recipes I’ve been loving!

See ya later!
