12 Easy Healthy Lunch Ideas For Home

Working at home has its perks. For the most part, it’s pretty awesome, however there are a few potential negatives that also come with working from home. For me, one of the worst was my eating habits. I found myself eating far too many convenience foods instead of taking the time to prepare something healthy (and likely more delicious), so it was time to kick this bad habit to the curb and come up with some easy healthy lunch ideas for home.

Whether you work from home, are a stay at home mum or dad, or simply want some easy healthy lunch ideas for weekends or any day, these ideas are sure to have you covered. Incorporate them into your weekly meal plan to guarantee you are eating well while you work (or play) at home.

Salad Wraps

Wraps are a great easy healthy lunch idea, because like a sandwich, anything goes really for fillings, and they are a lighter option to bread. Have a mix of salad items and meat filling available for a quick and easy lunch wrap.

We like to pre-cook chicken schnitzels and cut them up into strips, but chicken breast or leftover roast dinner can work too. Actually, pretty much anything can work on a wrap.

Here are some filling ideas:

  • Tuna
  • Shredded chicken, beef or pork
  • Feta
  • Salmon
  • Greens (lettuce, spinach, etc)
  • Tomato

 Salmon & Soba Noodle Salad

Warm salad with plenty of high iron greens and a variety of flavours. Recipe

Roast Vegetable Frittata

A great way option to prep a few lunches in advance by making this veggie loaded frittata. You could even freeze it for another day. Recipe.

Simple Omelette

It doesn’t take long to mix up a quick omelette mix and throw it in the frying pan. Add whatever fillings you have in the house at the time. Find my simple omelette recipe here.

Fruit Salad

Fruit is a great healthy option for lunches, either in a mixed seasonal fruit salad or even on its own. If fruit alone is a little on the light side and not adequately filling you up, consider chopping up fresh fruit into a bowl of yogurt or muesli.

Sweet Chilli Tofu and Rice

Quick and meat free. Make up a big batch so you and the rest of the family can enjoy this easy healthy lunch idea. Recipe.

Zucchini Fritter

If you are looking for dairy free, this recipe is perfect by using yeast flakes although you can also substitute with parmesan if you want. Recipe.

Vegetable and Chickpea Soup

Soup is a great option for easy healthy lunch ideas, and in the colder months, also a perfect way to warm up too. Either way, soup is good all year round. Recipe.

Little Bit Asian Tuna and Chia Salad

Tuna is a great lean protein that is so diverse, and this easy healthy lunch idea is simple to make with some great flavours. Recipe

Sweet Potato Rosti With Fried Egg & Greens

What an awesome combination of flavours for this lunch idea. Something a little interesting for lunch (or breakfast), without slaving over the kitchen for hours. Recipe.

Chilli Black Bean Pizza

A bit of spice and some strong flavours combined with an easy favourite – pizza. Recipe.

Quick Mini Quiche

Not only do they fall into the easy healthy lunch ideas category, quiche is also a fabulous way to use up excess food from your fridge, such as meat, veggies, herbs etc. Recipe.

  1. I’m going to be working/studying from home and I was just wondering what I would eat for lunch now that it doesn’t have to be “packed” so this post is perfectly timed (and very delicious.) I think I might start with the soba noodle salad and work my way through the list! Thanks for linking up with the Ultimate Rabbit Hole.

    1. Glad to help. Stay tuned for part two later next month too :) such a great variety of recipes from fellow bloggers when I did a call out. Bloggers will always come through for our time of need ;) what will you be studying?

  2. Ooh yum!
    I am way too lazy to do anything other than a peanut butter or vegemite sandwich at lunch time!
    I do have cheese and tabouli toasted wrap if we have some leftover from the night before.
    When i was pregnant i had gestational diabetes and i used to have leftovers for lunch every day from the last nights dinner. I don’t know why I don’t still do that it was so easy!

    1. Working from home makes it so easy to fall into bad food habits. I was doing great but will admit I had brownie for lunch one day over the weekend ? so bad! Back on the healthy food habits.

      1. I so agree, Holly. I am so bad at catering for myself during the day. I have started packing myself a lunch box when I do the kids!

        Thanks for including my favourite go-to tuna salad in your suggestions. x
