Lunch Recipes Index

If lunches are eaten at home, their preparation and serving should present few problems. These days, however, many people are away from home at lunchtime. This can make meal preparation more difficult.

If you take your lunch in a restaurant or works’ canteen, it is safest to choose meat, fish or cheese salads. Eat the lettuce, tomatoes, coleslaw, et cetera, but go easy on the potato salad.

You could also have a hot meal of, say, roast beef, green vegetables and a little mashed potato, but decline the Yorkshire pudding and go easy on the puddings: finish with cheese rather than a sweet.

If you eat in a pub, and normally have a drink, bear in mind the carbohydrate content of the alcohol. Have, say, a whisky highball with soda, a vodka martini or a glass of dry wine – and restrict yourself to just the one.

If you normally take a packed lunch of sandwiches, however, it is not so easy. The ideas for lunches in this section, therefore, concentrate on meals to be eaten in an office or building site.

Sandwiches Although you might think that sandwiches are out, they needn't be.

Salads Sandwiches aren't the only foods you can pack. Here are some other ideas.
