The Most Mouth-Watering BYO Lunch Ideas Ever

Roundup

Returning to the office this week has us all optimistic about things like riding to work (instead of driving) and making a nice lunch everyday (instead of spending $15 on takeaway).

Join us on the lunchbox bandwagon (!) with these Pinterest-worthy lunch ideas, from our recipe archives!

It’s now been a year without LMC (Lisa Marie Corso, duh) and, among oodles of other things, we dearly miss her endless food-spiration! Suss Lisa’s lunch ideas below… and you, too, can go to work every day with an extravagant homemade lunch, and eat it by 11.30am!

Chicken cotoletta (schnitzel) sandwich

Ricotta bruschetta two ways

Roast cauliflower salad

You can always count on a caterer to make inspired meals look effortless… did you catch our lunchbox series with our go-to caterer, Cassie Lucas of Firecracker Event?

Gluten, dairy and meat-free ‘Free Fairing Friend’ Lunchbox

Smoked salmon and goats cheese ‘Ladies Lunchbox’

Middle Eastern inspired ‘Flavour Punch Lunch’

Pastrami, pickle and sweet potato ‘Ploughman’s Lunch’

We often return to this inspired recipe series by Michelle Schoeps of Love & Bones Broth. In fact, this series was originally designed to inspire family weeknight dinners, but… why not double up with something that works for dinner then tomorrow’s lunch (winning!) like…

Zesty pork tacos using leftover slow cooked pork

or

Chicken Schnitzel with Raw Veg and Potato Chips

AND, don’t forget to throw in a couple of tasty, sweet treats too.. Like these choc-banana pops (who knew frozen fruit could actually taste just like ice cream – no, really!).
