These low-calorie sandwich recipes, low-calorie salad recipes and more quick low-calorie lunch options are perfect to pack for the office. So if you are a busy guy wishing for a healthier lifestyle, let’s get started now with the guidance here!

 

  1. Tuscan-Style Tuna Salad

This streamlined version of a northern Italian idea is perfect for a summer evening: no-fuss, no-cook and big taste. You can even make it ahead and store it, covered, in the refrigerator for several days. If you do, use it as a wrap filling for the next day’s lunch. Recipe

 

  1. BLT Salad

Here’s a salad version of America’s favorite sandwich. We use shredded tomato as a base for the creamy tomato-and-chive dressing—adding great tang and flavor along with extra vitamin C. Recipe

 

  1. Salmon Salad Sandwich

Salmon salad served on tangy pumpernickel bread makes for an easy dinner—a double batch will give you lunch the next day. Recipe

 

  1. Chicken & White Bean Salad

 

Zucchini and celery give this chicken-and-bean salad a nice crunch. We like serving it over a bed of slightly bitter escarole and radicchio, but any type of salad greens will work. Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell. Recipe

 

  1. Pizza Roll-Up Bento Lunch

This easy pizza-inspired roll-up is a kid-pleaser. Make crunchy vegetables more appealing by selecting colorful varieties like orange and purple cauliflower—and don’t forget the dip! Keep ’em smiling with watermelon cut into fun shapes with cookie cutters. Recipe

 

  1. Shrimp Cobb Salad

Cooked peeled shrimp is perfect for quick and healthy meals—here we use it in place of chicken in our simplified Cobb Salad. Recipe

 

  1. BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Toss leftover cooked chicken with barbecue sauce and crunchy carrots for a quick and healthy lunch. Recipe

 

  1. Peanut Tofu Wrap

Baked tofu tossed with store-bought Thai peanut sauce makes a quick and healthy sandwich filling. Finish the sandwich with your favorite crunchy vegetables for added nutrients and fiber. Recipe

 

  1. Smoked Trout Salad

The fast of Yom Kippur is often broken with smoked fish as in this trout salad. This easy dinner, which can be made ahead, is great for any night, holiday or not. Serve it on a bed of greens to dress it up and add a whole-grain bagel to make it a substantial meal. Recipe

 

  1. Italian Vegetable Hoagies

This delightfully easy, and somewhat messy, sandwich packs a punch with sweet balsamic vinegar, artichoke hearts, red onion, provolone cheese and zesty pepperoncini. We love it for dinner as well as lunch. If you’re packing the hoagies to take along, remember to keep the ingredients separate and assemble right before eating to avoid soggy bread. Serve with tomato and cucumber salad. Recipe
