These Easy Cold Lunch Ideas are perfect for work – they can all be made ahead and you don't need to worry about reheating them!
Wanna Learn How To Meal Prep?
My meal planning service, Dinner Prep Pro, removes the guesswork and helps you get dinner on the table in 15-20 minutes each night. My meal prep checklists only take 1 hour each week!
When it comes to lunchtime, meal prep can be a life saver – you don’t want to be worried about cooking something in the middle of the workday. If you don’t have access to a microwave or you’re eating on the go, there are still plenty of lunches you can meal prep that don’t require any reheating.
I rounded up some of my favourite cold lunch ideas that are super easy and so delicious! Just pull them out of the fridge and dig in.
Boxes and Bowls
These bento boxes and meal prep bowls make excellent lunches! There are even some simple no-cook options like the Healthy Bento Boxes that come together in just mere minutes.
Wraps don't need to be boring! Try making these wraps in tortillas, on lettuce, or even rolled up in collard greens. The shrimp salad is also super delicious on a brioche roll!
It wouldn't be a true cold lunch post if we didn't mention salads. You can meal prep them in mason jars, use grains like quinoa to bulk them up, and play around with different dressings to make something delicious!
