Healthy Meal-Prep Packed Lunch Recipes

Sep 27 2023
We all rely on store-bought frozen entrées or a good ol’ PB&J from time to time… but if you want to add NEW healthy packed lunch recipes to your rotation, check out this list and get your meal prep on!

Meals in a Jar

Grab a set of quart-sized mason jars! Load ‘em up with protein-topped salads and veggie-loaded soups, and you’ll be the envy of the break room…

Sandwiches, Wraps & More

No microwave? No problem! Just store one of these with a cold pack in your insulated bag ‘til lunch. HG Tip: For that first recipe, pack the chicken salad & veggies separately from the bread; then put ‘em together before you eat for an optimally fresh sandwich.

Heat & Eat Dishes

We love a make-ahead recipe. It keeps us from stressing about what’s for lunch the rest of the week! Baking-pan casseroles and slow-cooker recipes are clutch…

Easy Single-Serving Meals

Cook & pack your meal the night before OR make a few servings at once, and load them into individual containers! Either way, you win.

Target Find of the Day!

Pyrex FreshLock Glass Storage Set

Time to upgrade your beat-up food storage containers with missing lids. This affordably priced set from a trusted brand features durable glass that resists stains and won’t absorb food smells or flavors. Plus, they’re microwave safe, dishwasher safe, and freezer ready! The containers and lids nest and stack for space-saving convenience. And the airtight lids keep food fresher than fresh. Choose from Pickup, Delivery, and Shipping, before they sell out…

Chew on this:

Today, September 27th, is National Crush A Can Day. Not sure what that’s all about, but we’ll crush a few cans of Black Cherry Waterloo Sparkling Water for sure…
