9 Quick and easy 15-minute lunches

Published on

When you have a toddler who loves tantrums and a young baby who needs attention, or just any mom for that matter, 15 minute lunches are a life safer. Make them in the morning if you can while the kids are still sleeping. If you can't then it's easy to whip it up in the afternoon.

Turkey spinach pinweels

I've used the idea of these wraps but couldn't find turkey so I used sliced roast chicken and they turned out delicious.

Chickpea edamame salad

Everything in this salad comes together nicely. I love the dried cranberries and it's nice to eat less meat and rather eat healthy legumes. The edamame adds protein and interest to the salad.

Mason jar Quinoa salad

This is such a simple but impressive salad. I'd take it along when asked to bring a salad. The black beans and corn goes together nicely with the quinoa and if you have fresh avo that would be great.

Veggie pita sandwiches

This pita sandwiches have a creamy avo and chickpea hummus. If you don't have fresh avo you can use guacamole, bottled avo or avo and garlic dressing like I did.

Easy tuna wrap

Tuna is a nice option for lunch and this recipe adds lots of flavor and health boosters to the tuna while the bed of baby spinach keeps the wrap from getting too moist.
