Healthy Lunch Recipes

A healthy lunch can give you the right fuel to keep up your energy and mood for the rest of the day. The most difficult part of eating healthy may be choosing varied meals that don't leave you bored. That's where our best healthy lunch recipes come to the rescue. We've got tons of tasty lunch meals like crunchy fresh salads, layered-with-goodness sandwiches, and even picnic recipes to take with you to the ballpark or on a picnic. Sandwiches are a great healthy lunch choice—they're quick, delicious, and portable. A few simple swaps to your usual sandwich fixings can help you save hundreds of calories without skimping on taste. We walk you through how to make a lighter, more flavorful sandwich with low-calorie and low-fat swaps, as well as an explanation of the four basic elements of a sandwich. Americans also love salads for lunch recipes, which is a fantastic way to get multiple servings of vegetables and fruits. But salads can hide lots of hidden calories and fat sources. We walk you through healthy salad selections that are quick to make, nutritious to eat for lunch or dinner, and keep your body fueled.
