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.
