I’m extremely excited about todays blogpost not only because I am featuring not 1 but 3 quick and healthy lunch recipes but I’m collaborating with the fabulous Olga over at Fablunch. Olga is the expert on healthy lunches and she is sharing her top 3 go to healthy lunch recipes that are perfect for those lazy days. Don’t be scared by the pretty food photos, I promise these are super quick to whip up and taste so fresh and delicious which are perfect for the Summer months. There’s basically a lunch to satisfy any lunch craving. Whether you’re a soup, sandwich or salad lover, we’ve got you covered. We had so much fun creating these recipes in the Fablunch kitchen and I just know you’re going to love them!
For Olga’s channel I shared my go to 3 healthy breakfast recipes that I make when Im either lazy or am running out the door. You can check out that video HERE!
First runner up is this Spicy Salsa Soup which is best enjoyed chilled like a gazpacho. Who says you can’t eat soup on a hot day? This vegan friendly lunch recipe will satisfy your tastebuds and keep your belly full.
The combination of the blended soup and the chunky toppings are AH-MAZING! Its like guacamole meets salsa when you top it with the diced avocado.. soo good!
Next up is a scrumptious Kale Hummus Salad. You might not have thought to mix the two together before but trust us this is a match made in heaven. Using hummus as a dressing is a great way to save time and add protein to your salad. It makes for a creamy non dairy dressing that your kale will soak up and love.
For this Kale Hummus salad we used Olga’s Fablunch containers to store them in. These containers are perfect to bring to school or work because they are actually collapsable. I love mine and have been using them for months now to pack my lunches 🙂
Last but not least a Chickpea Salad Sandwich which is the perfect substitute for any tuna or egg salad. This sandwich is plant-based and full of fibre and protein to keep you full. The best part is that you can make this recipe a regular or lettuce wrap if you want as well. In the same time it takes you to make a tuna salad you could easily mix up one of these tasty sandwiches.
There’s something about a sandwich that is nostalgic and makes me feel like a kid again. I’m not going to lie this was probably my favourite recipe out of the 3 although it was a very..VERY tough call! I love the addition of the fresh herbs in this recipe and how it just brightens up the flavours in the sandwich.
Below I have all 3 healthy lunch recipes laid out for you so you can print them out and stick them onto your fridge for your Sunday meal prep. I hope you try all 3 recipes out and let Olga and I know what you thought of them in the comments below or over on social media.
