Saturday Morning Roundup – Healthy Lunches!

Are you stuck in a lunch rut?

Lunch is probably the hardest meal for me. I tend to go out for lunch most days when I am running errands with the kids. But that is going to change. In my new small home-town there are 3 restaurants.

Yeah, just three. 

With the new year and my resolutions to be healthier, I am going to stick around the house to eat lunch and I plan on eating several of these tasty and healthy lunches I’m going to share with you today! Ok, so I might still go out once in a while… I’m not perfect!

Food, Wine, Thyme shares a delicious looking Chickpea & Roasted Red Pepper Salad as well as several tips on making healthy lunches!

If you know me, you know I am a Greek fanatic. So these Greek Veggie Wraps from Feed Me, Seymour are seriously calling my name. Plus I totally love the name of her blog!

I’m on a total soup kick right now, and any brothy soup has got healthy written all over it. This Italian Wedding Soup from Sweet Potato Chronicles looks like just what I need to feed my lunch/soup cravings.

If you’re into pizza, then you have to try this Skinny Calzone from The Fit Housewife. It’s full of veggies in a whole wheat crust.

If you’re cutting carbs, then try subbing pasta for zucchini noodles. This Zucchini Pasta from A House In The Hills looks just like my favorite veggie pasta from The Pasta factory. Love it!

I have a huge weakness for a creamy broccoli salad, and creamy usually = not healthy. So this Asian Broccoli Salad from Anja’s Food 4 Thought, with it’s non-creamy dressing looks right up my ally.

Grilled sandwiches totally rock. Aioli’s totally rock too. So I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that this Grilled Turkey Sandwich with Basil Aioli from Sea Salt With Food will totally rock your world.

Who doesn’t love a good pasta salad? Atta Girl Says made this delectable Artichoke & Olive Pasta Salad with kalamata olives in a light lemon dressing. You could even use whole wheat pasta to up the health factor.

Now that I am in the far faaaaar Northwest, I will be preparing tons of salmon. I am stoked to try out these Seared Salmon Tacos with Honey Lime Slaw & Sriracha Ranch from Peas and Crayons. I’ll probably eat these daily.

All Day I Dream About Food guest posted on my site last year with this Goddess Chicken Satay. Not only are they kid friendly, but super friendly on the hips as well!
