I have a hard time getting myself to eat lunch. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that I usually forget to because I’m so preoccupied with work. Once I get into that writing flow, there’s no prying me away from my computer for very long. Which means if a lunch needs more than 10 minutes to make, then I’m probably not going to make it.
I can usually count on a sandwich as something I can throw together quickly, but sometimes even they get overly complicated. Not five-ingredient sandwiches, though. With just bread, veggies, protein, and maybe a spread, they’re as simple as it gets, and they never take longer than 10 or 15 minutes to prepare. Another plus: They’re so easy to pack! So if you know you don’t have time or space to whip up lunch in the middle of the day, you can prep a sandwich at night or in the morning, so that it’s ready to go when hunger strikes.
These 19 easy recipes are packed with protein, fiber, and healthy carbs, so they’ll keep you satisfied. Most are perfect for a packed lunch, but there are some breakfast sandwiches included, too! And while they may be simple, they definitely aren’t boring.
