Lunch is the most important part of the day. It is the only meal that you can have without anyone else’s permission. If you are a working person, you have to eat lunch at a certain time. If you are a student, you have to eat lunch at a certain time. You may have other obligations or deadlines but no one will force you to eat your lunch. Now, the question is “What should be your lunch menu?” Let’s discuss Healthy food recipes for lunch in detail!
- Salmon is a great source of protein, so use it for this salad.
- Make sure your salmon is fresh. If you buy it at the grocery store and don’t know how long it’s been sitting there, check out how thickly coated with slime fish oil is on its surface—that means it’s been sitting around for quite some time (and probably not in pristine condition).
- Use a variety of vegetables in your salad: cucumber slices, radishes, celery stalks, and even sprouts can be added to give this dish some more crunch while adding more vitamins and minerals into the mix! The dressing should compliment the taste of each ingredient so that they aren’t overwhelmed by other tastes or flavors—if possible try using different oils instead like olive oil instead of vinegar which will add flavor without adding any extra calories/fatty acids such as cholesterol.”
Pesto chicken salad wrap
- One chicken breast, sliced
- Two tablespoons pesto (any variety you like)
- Two cups spinach leaves and/or lettuce (I used baby spinach)
- One tomato chopped up into small pieces
- Two cucumbers seeded and diced into tiny pieces
- How to prepare: Put all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix them together well with your hands until everything is evenly distributed throughout the mixture. This may take some time if you’re using fresh ingredients like lettuce or spinach, but once you get everything incorporated into one big mass, it should be easy enough!
Avocado tuna salad
If you want to enjoy a healthy snack, you can make a tuna salad. If you aren’t fond of tuna, then try it with chicken instead. When making your sandwiches or salads, try putting avocado instead of mayonnaise. This adds lots of healthy fat to your diet. You should try adding celery and red onions to tuna salad for more flavor. You can also add different vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, and pickles. Try not to make your tuna salad too spicy. Tuna salad should have a mild flavor. You can eat this tuna salad as a sandwich or as a salad.
You can use a lot of the leftover ingredients for other meals. Here are some suggestions.
Avocado tuna salad can be made into a sandwich by using lettuce instead of bread. This makes it easy to eat and even easier to transport. You can put some peanut butter and jelly between two slices of bread to make it more delicious.
You can make a tuna salad wrap by using a tortilla. Spread some mayonnaise on one side of the tortilla and lay the salad on the other. Top it with lettuce. You can also use mustard or salsa as a dressing.
You can make a sandwich without any bread if you use avocado as your bread. This is very nutritious and delicious. You can also use lettuce in place of bread. You can spread mayonnaise on it and top it with your salad. For tuna salad, you can use tuna, mayonnaise, celery, and onions. To make it even better, you can sprinkle it with celery salt.
If you like peanut butter and jelly, you can put some on one side of a tortilla and put your salad on the other side. Put some mustard on it or you can put some salsa on top. Another way to make a tuna sandwich is to wrap a lettuce leaf around two slices of bread. Top the lettuce with tuna, mayonnaise, celery, and onion.

Easy egg salad
1 boiled egg (about the size of a marble)

Chives or dill for garnish (optional)
Celery, red onion, or tomato for garnish (optional)

Watermelon and feta Greek salad
Watermelon, mint, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar are the perfect combination for this healthy lunch. The watermelon adds a delicious sweetness while the feta cheese provides a savory bite to contrast with it. The mint adds freshness and flavor to the salad while being able to be eaten right out of your hand! (Or spoon into your mouth.) This recipe makes 4 servings so you can share it with friends or family members as well! It takes about 10 minutes from start to finish including prep time which only takes 10 minutes total!
Chicken caesar wrap with almonds
This is a great lunch option that’s easy to make. You can use any whole-grain tortilla you like, but I prefer whole wheat because it has more fiber and protein than white flour tortillas.
To add extra flavor, I like to add croutons (a good quality cheese—I like goat or cheddar) and sliced almonds on top of my wrap before eating. This will help fill me up in between meals so that I don’t have to snack all day!
