Beyond Sandwiches: 10 Delicious and Portable Lunch Recipes

published Mar 12, 2012

Sandwiches are an obvious go-to lunch choice. They’re usually simple to put together, quick and portable. But there’s only so much weekday PB&J’s one can eat, so we thought we’d pull together some ideas to help you move beyond the common sandwich.

The important thing for so many of us is that lunch be quick and portable. Jetting off to work or school doesn’t often afford us the chance to sit down and have a home-cooked, fully balanced mid-day meal. Thankfully, we have spring rolls, frozen burritos you can take out of the freezer the night before, and turkey salad wraps. You won’t find any slices of bread, but you will find a few new lunch ideas.
