Do you find yourself cooking the same recipes every week? Or maybe you find yourself in a restaurant more nights than not? I get it. Figuring out what to cook is hard. Finding recipes that your family will like is a struggle as well. On-the-go sandwiches are one way I make packing lunch for work easier.
I often find myself cooking the same meals every week. That is okay for a while but it tends to get boring after a while. How many weeks can we eat tacos in a row? Can we really eat the same lunch every day without getting bored? I get it. I need new and inspiring recipes to help me find meals my family will love and switch it up in the kitchen.
Meal planning can save you money and time if done correctly. Shopping the weekly sales ad is a good start to saving money in the kitchen. However, if you do not have a plan for what you buy you’ll find yourself struggling to get food on the table for your family. By menu planning, you know exactly what you are going to cook for the week and can shop accordingly. You’ll save yourself time, money, and a bit of sanity.
I am teaming up with other bloggers from around the internet to share recipes with you that will inspire you to switch up your menu and create something new. I challenge you to grab one of these recipes and add it to your weekly menu plan. You’ll find new recipes to love and help your family try different foods.
10 On-the-Go Sandwiches to Make for Lunch
Today, I am going to share on-the-go sandwiches with you to make lunchtime easier. Lunch is one of those areas that I struggle with. I find myself grabbing cold cuts from the deli and making a sandwich most days. It’s okay for a while but I like to switch it up as well. When I decided to put together a lunch post I knew I wanted easy recipes that could be brought to work for lunch or even on the go. Lunch is that one hour when we want to relax for a few minutes and just grab a bite to eat. We often don’t have to cook so finding recipes that could be made ahead and packed to go was key for me.
I love quick recipes and 5 minutes is definitely something that I can pull off to get my lunch together. This turkey club ranch wrap is a quick addition to your lunch ..and is definitely one of my favorite on-the-go sandwiches.
Kelly shares how easy it is to make the classic chicken salad. Enjoy this recipe on a croissant or as a little tea sandwich. You could even put it in a lettuce wrap if you want!

If you are looking for a healthy lunch idea this is perfect. These pinwheels are all veggie and look delicious especially on a hot summer day (of course you could enjoy them year round!)
