Egg salad lettuce wraps

We love the retro vibe of these egg salad wraps. Iceberg lettuce makes a perfect low-carb swap with bread to serve egg salad.

This cucumber and tomato sandwich is fresh and refreshing, making the most of the wine’s bounty. Chives add a subtle onion flavor to the cream cheese, but dill or basil can be used instead.

This black bean and quinoa bowl has many of the usual hallmarks of a taco salad, minus the fried bowl. We’ve loaded it with pico de gallo, fresh cilantro and avocado plus a light hummus dip to top it off.

This caprese sandwich is fresh from the basil and hearty from the thick, crusty ciabatta. Sun-dried tomatoes deepen the taste. Topping the bread with a layer of basil leaves and using toast helps keep the sandwich from getting soggy if you have to make it hours ahead.

Roasted red pepper leeks and lettuce wrapped in tahini sauce

A delicious, nutty tahini sauce brings together no-cook ingredients like canned chickpeas and roasted red peppers for these easy meal prep lettuce wraps. Make these wraps ahead of time for a quick lunch or dinner. A few slices of warm pita finish off the meal perfectly.

Fruit & Cheese Bistro Lunch Box

This fruit, cheese and cookie box inspired by Starbucks bistro boxes is a fun and healthy alternative to your standard sandwich. It’s the perfect personal-sized cheese plate to pack for a business lunch or a picnic in the park.

Bagel with black beans and slaw

Ted & Chelsea Cavanaugh

This easy open-faced sandwich recipe uses a jalapeño-cheddar bagel, but a plain bagel would work just as well. Top each half bagel with black beans and fresh slaw for a satisfying bite.

We took all the flavors you know and love from Buffalo wings and used them in this plant-based chickpea salad. The celery adds a satisfying crunch, while the blue cheese provides a cooling element to balance the spicy sauce. Serve over leafy greens or use as a sandwich filling.

This vegan chickpea salad sandwich is lemony, bright and delicious. It has all the flavors of a classic sandwich tuna salad, lemon and some garlic, but with chickpeas instead to add a vegan source of protein and a healthy boost of fiber. Celery adds a nice crunch.

PB&J Bistro Lunch Box

Inspired by Starbucks bistro boxes, this peanut butter and jelly lunch will be loved by kids and adults alike. Paired with sandwich sides, including a yogurt parfait, fruit, vegetables and popcorn, this healthy packed lunch will help keep you full until dinner.

Chopped Salad with Sriracha Tofu and Peanut Dressing

Make four days of high-protein vegan lunches using just four simple ingredients from your local specialty grocery store, including a vegetable salad mix as a base. Because this salad mix is ​​hearty, you can dress these bowls up to 24 hours before serving to allow the flavors in this healthy chopped salad to marry. If you can’t find a hearty mix, go with broccoli slaw or shredded Brussels sprouts.

Chickpea Quinoa Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Dressing

This hearty vegan salad is packed with powerful plant-based ingredients: chickpeas, quinoa, and hummus. We love the crunch of sunflower seeds and the unexpected aroma of roasted peppers.
