What's Hap-pinning Wednesday: Lunch Ideas

I go through phases with Pinterest - sometimes I am constantly looking at things, while other times I barely even open the app!  Lately it has been one of those "on" times, where I have been all about Pinterest.

One of my favorite things to look at are recipes.  I have been on the lookout for some new lunch ideas.  With the weather getting warmer, lighter, healthier lunches have been catching my eye.   Bonus points if the lunch can be prepped on the weekend.  Below are a few that I have found recently.

Orzo Salad with Chickpeas, Cucumbers, Lemon, Dill, & Feta Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com Love these fresh flavors!:

  1. I was just saying yesterday to my friend about how I need to start packing my lunch the night before. I love these pins because you can pack some of them on Sunday and have them for the whole week. I might try that this weekend and see how it goes!

  4. All of these look soooo delicious!! I always go to my in-laws' house for lunch because they live really close to where I work. But these would also work for quick dinner ideas!

  6. I'm usually pretty good about packing my lunch for work but I feel like I've been in a bit of a rut lately so I've also been turning to Pinterest for some inspiration...definitely looking forward to some lighter spring salads now that the weather is nicer!

  12. I'm the same way with Pinterest, I use the app in spurts. I've been loving it lately as a great time suck ;)! I want to be better at prepping my lunches for the week with healthier options, but can't execute...I need to work on this and use Pinterest to find new recipes!

  13. Lord all of these look so yummy! I use to always pack chicken/tuna salad with crackers and salad! Add a hard boiled egg to either to stay full longer (other than that I fell into the fast food trap out of laziness haha)

  14. I'm so bad about bringing lunch lately: every night, I say I'm too tired and will make something in the morning. Every morning, I'm running late and fail miserably. So I go out and grab lunch every day. I need to get better about this!

  15. I'll take all of these for lunch, thank you!

  16. I am exactly the same with Pinterest. It's like an all or nothing thing for me! Thanks for the lunch inspiration...I was just searching some healthy, easy lunch ideas for work.

  17. All of those lunches look so good! I'm definitely all about easy for lunch too and prefer something that I can just grab and go, which is normally just leftovers.

  18. That first salad is one of my favorites-- it's so light & refreshing! The second pin looks really good too- meal prepping is such a struggle for me.

  19. I'm back and forth with Pinterest too... I love salads for lunch! I make a curry chicken... shredded chicken, diced celery, dried cranberries, some mayo and curry powder. It's soo good!!!

  20. All of my co-workers make fun of me because I eat almost the same thing every single day for lunch - romaine lettuce topped with chick peas, cherry tomatoes, and feta cheese, in a homemade citrus dressing. Some days I add meat or other vegetables or fruits to it, but most days it's pretty basic. On the days it doesn't fill me up, I'll have a Greek yogurt on the side for the extra protein. I've been needing to get some new ideas but I don't have much time to browse Pinterest, so thanks for providing these! Maybe I can finally get out of my rut!

  21. I've been on a Pinterest kick lately too- and mostly with food as well! ;) I've been looking at lots of new freezer meal ideas and prepping a big list to make before the baby gets here. I love prepping lunches on the weekend- these are some good ideas!

  22. i go through phases with pinterest as well. sometimes i feel like the food on pinterest is so fancy and i just want something simple. but these all look fairly easy and yummy! right now i am having tomato soup and toast for lunch. lol. not very healthy or nutritious and getting a bit boring so i'll have to think of some new things!

  25. I totally get what you mean by going through Pinterest phases ha. I made a lunch board recently but called it "Light Meal Recipes" because I'm a freak and don't like the word lunch. Anyway, you might like some ideas I pinned on there =) I'm going to pin some of yours for sure!

  26. These all look so yummy! I'm with you on going through phases with Pinterest. Sometimes I hardly look at it at all and then other times (especially if I'm looking for something in particular), I can spend a couple of hours on it!

  27. These are some great ideas! Packing lunch for work is SO difficult. I will have to check these recipes up to mix in with my usual routine. Thanks for sharing!

  28. Great ideas! I always get overzealous with my pinning and then get overwhelmed on what meals to actually make! Lately I've been pinning crockpot meals since they usually make enough for the week.

  29. I LOVE the idea of prepping lunches like that - or even dinners!!! We've been prepping a lot of grilled meats, but actually putting it into containers with a side is a great idea ...

  30. Pinterest is the best when I get in a meal-planning rut!

  31. I need to change my lunch routine up; I am in a rut! I like to have the SAME thing for lunch 5 days in a row and then switch, because it makes prepping (and grabbing and go) so easy! From your pins,I realize that I definitely need to add more veggies in to my bag! Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture
