Preparing food takes a long time, especially if it’s healthy, right? Not necessarily! Here are some of our favorite healthy recipes that you can take to work for lunch to save you time and the headache of trying to decide what to make.
Burritos are some of the most versatile lunches you can make! You can put just about anything in them or take out any ingredient that you don’t want. We love to make a bunch of them and then freeze them. Then, when you are leaving for work and realize that you forgot to pack a lunch, just grab a burrito out of the freezer and you are good to go!

3. Chicken Avocado Salad in a Pita
First of all, this picture with the bento box is so cute! Definitely grab some of those if you don’t have any for lunches. But also, this recipe is a great way to mix up your usual sandwich. Feel free to add in some cucumbers if you want an extra crunch. You’ll be looking forward to lunch all morning if you bring this with you to lunch.
