24 Easy Healthy Lunch Recipes

You'll look forward to lunch every day with these easy healthy recipes!

By: Molly Hall, Editor,

Sometimes eating the same sandwich or salad for lunch every day can get boring. That's where this collection of 24 Easy Healthy Lunch Recipes comes in handy! From meals made in a Mason jar to lightened-up favorites, you're sure to find a new go-to lunch recipe. These recipes are healthy and easy to make--some can even be prepared days ahead of time. There are so many benefits to bringing your lunch to work or school besides just eating healthy, too. You'll spend less money and you'll feel better about what you're eating. These healthy lunch recipes will easily become some of your favorites.

This collection of 24 Easy Healthy Lunch Recipes will shake up your lunchtime routine with fresh ideas. 

Mason Jar Meals

Layering a Mason jar with fresh vegetables and your favorite salad dressing is one of the easiest ways to pack a lunch. Even better, these Mason jar salads can be prepared in one large batch, so then each morning you just have to grab-and-go! Bringing a salad for lunch has never been easier! Each of these recipes can be adapted to your individual tastes, so feel free to experiment. 

Comfort Food

When you're trying to eat healthy, sometimes cravings for old comfort food arise. With these lightened-up Comfort Food recipes, you'll be able to enjoy some of your old favorites without the added calories. Now it's okay to eat some chicken fingers smothered in BBQ sauce or dig in to some creamy mac and cheese. These recipes may even taste better than the originals!

Pasta Salad

If you think pasta salad is just for dinner sides and potlucks, then you are in for an eye-opening experience. Taking pasta salad for lunch is a great way to get grains, vegetables, and proteins in one meal. Just like any other salad, you can customize these pasta salads to your favorite tastes. Try mixing them up with different shaped pasta or a new dressing. As with most pasta salads, these are best if you make them at least a day ahead of time to allow the flavors to marinate and come together. These recipes can be made and stored in one large container, or you can individually pack them for easy grab-and-go lunches! 


Although sandwiches have been a staple in lunches since we were children (PB&J, anybody?), these sandwiches are far from ordinary. These recipes are best made fresh, so if you have the opportunity to take your lunch break at home, try one of these easy healthy recipes. However, you could still make them the night before and reheat (or eat cold!) the next day if you wanted to. It's no surprise that sandwiches are a popular lunch item, but these recipes take you past the classic ham and cheese.
