Work From Home Lunch Ideas to Try This Week
The flexibility of working at home can enhance your life—and even better, you have access to your kitchen. That means no more last-minute peanut butter sandwiches as you race out the door every morning.
But even the novelty of your kitchen can wear a bit thin, and you might find yourself searching for new work-from-home lunch ideas. We know that planning meals can be tedious, so we’ve done the hard work for you. Our delicious lunch ideas can be customized to please your palate and keep things exciting. Check out the list that we’ve crafted, which includes easy, better-for-you WFH lunch ideas.
Most people agree they need to include more veggie-rich meals in their diet. These meals can be as simple as creating a salad and piling up a mountain of sautéed bell peppers, onion, zucchini, and tomatoes with Mexican spices in a soft flour tortilla…YUM! Drizzle it with spicy chipotle sauce for some extra vibrancy.
One of our team’s favorites is a salmon and veggie bowl, which combines the richness of freshly broiled salmon and veggies with sesame seeds, all drizzled with a creamy miso glaze dressing. Add our Organic Himalayan Salt Crackers for extra crunch and texture.
Sweet potato chili can be cooked the night before, and it will reheat beautifully for a Meatless Monday lunch. Add a dollop of sour cream, a handful of chopped green onions, and a side of our Gluten Free Crackers to scoop it up. You can even make up a large batch and freeze it into individual servings to last for a month.
Tacos are versatile—there’s no strict rule about what you stuff into a taco, so start experimenting with all your favorite meats and veggies.
Our gluten free breaded shrimp tacos make the perfect WFH lunch. Think crispy, spicy, breaded shrimp packed into a tortilla with lime and shredded purple cabbage…Oh yeah.
Chicken wings are another quick and delicious working-from-home lunch idea because they’re easy to put together and are a great snack. For a quick lunch, pop a tray of frozen chicken wings in the oven and serve them with cut-up vegetables and ranch.
If you’re looking for a vegetarian option, we’ve got you covered— frozen cauliflower buffalo wings come in various flavors, including buffalo and barbecue. Serve them with a dipping sauce, carrot and celery sticks, or make a gorgeous salad and toss your cauliflower wings in.
If you love to cook and have the time, you can prep the cauliflower beforehand and bake them before your lunch break. Here is a simple six-ingredient cauliflower wing recipe that can be adapted to suit your dietary preferences for the ideal WFH lunch.
Turkey Burger Thursday
Turkey burgers are quick to prepare, cook, and assemble, so they are an ideal work-from-home lunch idea. But they’re even quicker to eat! You can purchase turkey patties ready made or prepare them in bulk beforehand and keep them individually wrapped in your freezer for later.
Top a juicy turkey patty with salad vegetables and a side of our Gluten Free Fire Roasted Vegetable Crackers. The fusion of flavors will surprise you and have you looking forward to Turkey Burger Thursdays every week.
