Spring Lunch Ideas

Having inspiration for different lunches is something I really struggle with. I don't eat sandwiches or a lot of bread so I've been creative with finding alternatives. Spring is a great time of year to experiment with new flavours and combinations so I hope you enjoy some of my spring lunch ideas...

Healthy On The Go
This would be great for a packed lunch for work or school as it's not messy or time consuming. I sliced some baby plum tomatoes and cucumber and ate them with some chia seed bread (made with cabbage) and some Spanish spiced chicken thigh.


Easy Leftovers Salad
This is a salad that I make quite a lot when there are leftovers in the fridge. I lightly fry some sliced new potatoes with shallots and garlic and serve with mixed salad and top with some shredded chicken breast. 

Lunch With Friends
This is a Mediterranean inspired salad which works really well in the warmer months as a lunch or you could also serve it as an accompaniment at parties or barbecues. I mix tomatoes, green olives and rocket with some buffalo mozzarella and drizzle some olive oil or balsamic vinegar on the top. 



 Filling & Tasty
I love this dish for all times of year, (if I'm feeling healthier I make this with brown rice) and I've got it down to about 15 minutes cooking time. I boil the rice for ten minutes, then add peas for the remaining five. I microwave a piece of salmon and mix them all together and top with a boiled egg.

Thanks for reading :)

Do you have any spring lunch ideas?

  20. I liked the "Lunch with friends", cause I love mozzarella! To the point that I moved abroad and where I live there's no cow's milk mozzarella and I now have to produce my own! That lunch seems to be so tasty!

  25. Great ideas, everything looks so yummy! My lunches are usually very light, simply because I can't be bothered to cook something complicated twice a day. Leftovers, a quick salad or a small plate of pasta is typically what I eat!
