20 Paleo Lunch Recipes | A Girl Worth Saving

Lunch is often the hardest meal for me to plan.  Until recently, I would often just have a breve and “skip it” but that’s not working anymore.  It’s taken me almost 2 years to be OK eating salads again (hang on aversion from pregnancy) and mama, the salads I found for this round-up just look amazing.    There are more recipe ideas here though since seriously who wants to eat only salad for lunch? Not me.

Anyhow, I didn’t “get” lunch until I realized that lunch can just be a smaller dinner.   Meatballs are my favorite lunch with rolled cold cuts filled with avocado, homemade mayo and cucumbers come in second.

Here are 20 paleo lunch recipes to inspire you for the next couple of weeks.

    Lunch is actually my fave meal of the day. The light is good & my daughter is at school, so it is when I make recipes for the blog… then eat them 😀

    Everything looks/sounds yummy! I often pack my husband the previous night’s leftovers for his lunch the next day. I’m terrible at planning his lunches.

    Lunchtime can be so difficult that I usually end up eating a salad every day (not that I don’t love it but I do like variety). With summer on the way, I’ll be home with the kids more and able to make “real” lunches. Thanks for these recipes!

    The dirty rice sounds fabulous, and I’m with you. Lunch is kind of a challenge for some reason!
