Forget boring old ham and cheese sandwiches. These easy lunch ideas will perk up your midday meal!
What do you like to eat for lunch? I can’t tell you how many hundreds (thousands?) of frozen burritos I have eaten over the past ten years or so. I have plucked a burrito from the freezer, heated it, topped that baby with salsa and sour cream, and enjoyed it for lunch nearly every day of the week for months at a time. For some reason, I never ever get tired of it.
12 Easy Lunch Ideas to Make at Home in No Time
Cutting wheat from my diet has made it a little harder to keep up with my burrito habit. There are gluten-free versions, but they are either expensive or less than good. Plus, let’s face it: Eating fresh food is a lot healthier than a frozen, processed burrito even if it’s made from quality ingredients, right? When I don’t have leftovers available for lunch, I’m going to start branching out with some of these other quick and easy lunch ideas!

What a great roundup Andi! I am always looking for new lunch ideas and can’t wait to try some of these out! I really love your tuna lettuce wraps since I’ve been cutting down on the amount of gluten I eat too :) Pinning!
I need new ideas too! Good luck with cutting gluten. I don’t think it has been that bad at all if that makes you feel any better about it :)
