In debating what to blog about today, I realized that I’ve never addressed any lunch recipes or ideas. I’m not sure why that is exactly … maybe because I usually just throw something together or eat dinner leftovers. Also, lunch is my least favorite meal of the day. Don’t get me wrong, I love to eat and definitely enjoy lunch, but of my three meals each day, lunch is number three (breakfast is number one and dinner is number two). I generally don’t eat snacks because my body doesn’t need it, and eating high-quality protein and fats in each meal helps carry me over to the next.
Below you’ll see a few of my typical lunches. Sometimes, I’ll have a small dish of homemade 24-hour whole milk yogurt and a piece of fruit with my lunch as well. It just depends on what my lunch is and how I feel. Following my photos, you’ll find a few great sounding and looking lunch ideas.
In case you’re curious about my beet dip recipe, check out this blog post from a while back. You’ll see a carrot dip recipe, which is exactly the same as the beet dip — just sub beets for carrots (about 2 cups worth).
Now, here are some lunch recipes that look worthy of trying. I’ve pinned all of them to my Pinterest boards and encourage you to come follow me! To find these recipes, just click on each photo.
