Quick Lunches or Suppers

Image from schweppeinc.com

I find the most difficult meal to organise is lunch. I do not always plan for this and I know I should as it means we either end up popping to a local shop or eating something not particularly healthy. I HATE standing looking into my fridge trying to invent something for lunch that is filling but not fattening. So often we end up having boiled eggs or maybe a bacon sandwich or a couple of fishfingers basically I don’t think it is good enough.

I’ve been searching online for healthy, quick lunch/supper ideas and it seems everyone wants you to whip up a culinary storm rather than eat a easy snack.

Can anyone inspire me? What do you eat for lunch?

    I have 5 Ryvitas – sometimes sesame, sometimes dark rye with loads of butter. I have one of those sealed boxes with salad in – almost any combination – protein is often cottage cheese or goats cheese or houmous or beans or sardines or tuna or egg. Then I throw in maybe beetroot (makes cottage cheese go pink), spring onions, maybe lettuce or watercress or cress or radishes, homemade coleslaw always some nice tomato or other, and then I sometimes squeeze on some lemon juice, add a dash of olive oil, turmeric (makes cottage cheese go yellow), capers, chopped fruit, raisins, or anything else tasty I can lay my hands on. When I’m really enthusiastic, I grow alfalfa in a jar – very superfoody – or have olives, fennel, herbs, grated carrot. Takes 5 minutes while my porridge is cooking.

    Forgot to say – add to list of protein – chicken or roast joint leftovers. (Forget the processed meats – though Ed eats them.)

    Yes, I have the same problem with what to do for lunch. Seem to do a rotation of fish fingers, eggy bread, cheese on toast, potato cakes and beans and peanut butter sandwiches. It is tricky and especially with a 2 and a half yo who is getting more fussy.

    Thanks for your list of lunches. I liked the idea you suggested sometime ago about cooking extra of your main meal, you could then freeze this in small portions and bring it out for lunch the following week.
