6 Healthy & Quick Non-Sandwich Lunch Ideas


Are you tired of left overs, fast food and sandwiches for lunch? Look no more! Here are 6 Lunch ideas you are going to love! From simple a 'chuck it together' fruit plate to a hearty 'make the night before' sriracha rice.

Ramen On-The-Go: Fo' sure my favourite lunch at the moment. Place shredded carrot, sweetcorn, chopped coriander, chopped spring onions and glass noodles, with 1 tsp sriracha and soy sauce in a jar. Add a cup of boiling dissolved chicken stock cube, shake and leave for covered for 5 minutes. Bobs your uncle.

Fruit Bowl: A simple but goodie, a selection of fresh fruit laid out on a plate for you to dig into! Shop in season for super sweet and delicious fruit and add a little zing to the afternoon.

Rainbow Wraps: Spinach wraps filled with colourful goodness of shredded carrot and red cabbage, sweetcorn, tomato, coriander and hummus. Simply place all ingredients in the wraps and fold. The great thing about this lunch is you can use petty much whatever vegetable is in the fridge, why not try a bell pepper? 

Sriracha Rice: Get a bit spicy at lunch with sriracha rice. Cook the rice and add in shredded carrot, 1 fried red onion and peas with a splash of sriracha and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Place in a frying pan to keep it warm and mix well.

Super Sushi: Just roll with lunch with this super easy and healthy sushi. Cook yourself up some rice, place it on a roasted seaweed sheet along with spinach, cucumber and avocado and roll it all up. If you don't have a sushi roller you a non fluffy tea towel - tutorials can be found on YouTube.

Quac on Toast with a Poached Egg: Avocado mashed with salt, pepper, garlic and lemon juice placed on wholemeal seeded bread with a poached egg. This lunch just screams 'I am healthier than you'.

Lentil Burger With Sweet Potato Fries: Time to get mashing again with this lentil burger, mix the the mashed lentils with a range of spices such as cumin, curry powder and paprika, throw in a chopped cooked red onion and fresh coriander, fry and serve with home made sweet potato fries with a side of sriracha mayo.
