lunch ideas for work do not have to revolve around fast food restaurants. You can cook homemade meals for dinner. Place a food portion aside for your work lunch. When carrying your own lunch, make sure you keep any cold and hot food at safe temperatures where bacteria will not grow. One choice is placing food inside your office refrigerator.

Ham and Bean Soup

As a leftover lunch option, prepare a ham and bean soup. Use a slow cooker for the soup, which can take four hours on high heat. When using ham, choose between a leftover cooked ham and a purchased pre-cooked turkey ham. Soup ingredients should include vegetables, such as carrots and onions. Add any jar of beans, including black.

Ground Turkey Broccoli Salad

A salad offers a healthy lunch choice. Use ground turkey and broccoli for your salad. Prepare this dish the evening before work. Heat a pack of ground turkey in a skillet. As the turkey browns, add chopped broccoli and green peas for vegetables. Before work, place a pack of prepackaged salad in your lunch bag with the pre-made ground turkey dish.

Baked Turkey with Brown Rice

Enjoy a baked turkey for dinner and leave some for lunch. If you do not want to bake a whole turkey, you can make turkey legs. As your turkey bakes, prepare a pot of brown rice and add vegetables. Some vegetables include a bag of green peas or whole-kernel corn. Serve the baked turkey dish with a side salad.

Spinach Pesto Pasta

If you enjoy pasta, try a spinach pesto pasta recipe. The main vegetable of spinach can be combined with yellow corn and red peppers. Other ingredients involve a turkey broth, grated Parmesan cheese, fettuccine and white beans. Use a blender to combine all ingredients besides the fettuccine. Top the dish with more grated Parmesan cheese. Store inside your work refrigerator.

Zucchini Casserole

Prepare a zucchini casserole for your lunch. The casserole can be baked within 45 minutes the evening before lunch. Casserole ingredients include diced zucchini, yellow squash and red peppers. For a sauce, use a large can of stewed tomato sauce. Add meat to the dish. Choose from turkey, minced meat and chicken sausages. Otherwise, you can serve the dish meatless.
