Lunch might just be the trickiest meal of the day. Why? Because there’s no time for it. You’re at home for breakfast and you might go out for dinner, but you’re always away for lunch. And we don’t have to tell you have difficult that is when you’re trying to lose weight. Still, you needn’t worry because, as always, we’re jumping to your rescue with these four healthy lunch recipes for weight loss that will have you in top shape in no time.

1. Salmon on Kale Salad

How to do it

Mix a handful of kale with one chopped tomato, as much bell pepper and cucumber as you wish. You can drizzle it with some lemon dressing if you want. That’s just three parts olive oil and one part freshly squeezed lemon juice. On top, you can place a good chunk of grilled or baked salmon that has been drizzled with a bit of honey for taste and half a fresh avocado. You’re done!

2. Tuna Wraps

How to do it

This particular lunch is insanely easy to make and carry around with you. Take one packet or can of tuna and mix it with some freshly chopped tomatoes. Add your favorite pesto to taste and a handful of sweet corn. On your wrap, place one or two lettuce leaves and then spoon the tuna mixture onto it. Roll everything up as tightly as you can and be on your way.

3. The Veggie Burger

How to do it

In fact, to be honest, when it comes to healthy lunch recipes for weight loss, this is the veggie burger to end all veggie burgers. To make matters a whole lot easier for you and to save you some precious time, you can buy some ready-made veggie patties. Cook them up in a frying pan with a bit of extra virgin olive oil.

If you want to avoid adding oil to this recipe, you can always pop them in the oven. When they’re done, start assembling the burger. Place the patty on the bun. Top it with one slice of low-fat cheese, add a few grilled mushroom slices, tomatoes, and some onions. You can even add some eggplant slices in there for some more taste.

4. Fish Tacos

How to do it

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like tacos? Only, this time, instead of the classic version which is a bit fatty, to tell you the truth, we’re going to make the low-fat type of tacos. You will need some whole-wheat taco shells or tortillas. Fill them up with a portion of fish which has been previously sautéed and then shredded.

A portion of fish, in this case, means enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Then chop half an avocado and throw it in there, as well as some red cabbage and some onions. Your fish tacos are ready!
