How to Update Your Lunch
Think your lunch is boring? We update the meal that gets you over the midday hump.
Turn your go-to salad into a pasta
Toss your usual caesar, chef's or Greek salad with penne.
Give mayo the day off
Make tuna salad using mashed avocado and lemon juice, then serve as a sandwich on whole wheat bread with lettuce, tomatoes and red onions.
Nibble on assorted berries, roasted almonds, some cheese, and dried apricots and figs over the course of a few hours.
Make it the main meal of the day
Serve the heartiest meal for lunch (mmm, braised chicken in wine sauce with roasted veggies) and eat light at night. While you're at it, invite people over for a lunch party!
Make the world's fastest French onion soup
Simmer beef broth with caramelized onions; top with garlic croutons and Swiss cheese.
Turn a routine sandwich into a kebab
Thread lunch meat, cubes of cheese and chunks of raw veggies onto skewers and pack with ranch dressing for dipping.
Take a nostalgia trip
Pack a lunch of deviled eggs and gherkins, just like Mom used to make.
