You guys asked for it, so here you go! Healthy lunch recipes you can bring to work and school. This is possibly the most requested type of meal on my FlavCity YouTube channel, so I have quite a few now. Make sure to also check out my easy lunch recipe for chicken salad and keto cloudbread along with roast curry chicken salad with Brazilian cheese rolls.
Easy Lunch Recipes
My goal with lunch time is to take some classic deli items, make them healthy and flavorful, and pair them with a side that does not need to be warmed up. So this roast cauliflower and broccoli salad is my riff on a macaroni salad, but way healthier!
Healthy Lunch Recipes
There is a lot of junk food out there, and it;s so easy to grab something on the go for lunch, but it;s going to make you feel bad and ruin your diet. My lunch recipes are healthy, full of flavor, and since they are meal prep, you can enjoy it all 5 days of the work week.
This is something I am really proud of, it’s not easy to make healthy lunch recipes that are tasty, creative, and can be eaten cold. I don’t want t bring you guys boring recipes, I want to make you excited for a healthy lunch, which is why this roasted veggie salad with fennel spiced chicken thighs is something your co-workers will get jealous of!
If you think you don’t like cauliflower and broccoli, please try roasting them at a high temperature like 450 F. Something magical happens and the flavor is way better than your mama’s boiled veggies that she made you eat when you were a kid.
The broccoli and cauliflower get nice a roasty on the outside and creamy on the inside when roasted, they are good enough t eat like this, but once tossed in my tangy avocado mayo dressing they are irresistible.
Chicken thighs are the bomb, especially boneless and skinless thighs, they have way more flavor than breasts, and only a little more fat. Get this, they are even cheaper than breasts, just shows the law of supply and demand, so keep buying those bland breasts America, I thank you!
The chicken thighs are coated in a signature FlavCity spice rub, I mean, have I ever met a piece of cicken I have’nt rubbed before 😉 Fennel powder is fantastic, it tastes like black licorice and is a classic Italian ingredient.
Just make sure to allow the rub to sit on the chicken for 20-30 minutes. This will allow the marinade to go to work and the chicken to come to room temperature, because we never put cold meat in a hot pan!
