10 Easy Low Carb Lunch Options
When it comes to a packed lunch, the lower the carb the better I feel. Don’t get me wrong I love a big bowl of comforting pasta or a thick sandwich, but if I have a lot to get done in the afternoon I need energy that doesn’t make me want to crawl under my desk for a little nap.
Here I have compiled 10 of my favorite low carb lunch options. Some are from my blogs and others are from blogs that I love to follow. All of them take very little time to throw together and can be made ahead for a school or work lunch box or made on the spot for a quick lunch at home. Recipes can all be found by clicking linked recipe name.
The best part of this recipe is that its not really even a recipe. its more like an assembly of ingredients which means that you could make it with any ingredients that you would normally put on a sandwich!
