25 Packable Healthy Vegan Lunches for Work

Lunch. It’s definitely the meal that gets the least amount of time and love put into it.

Don’t get me wrong – I love lunch. But I really enjoy cooking a hearty breakfast and preparing a comforting dinner at the end of the day, so I don’t always feel like putting that much effort into packing my lunches. 99 percent of the time, my lunches are leftovers or some random things I threw into a container and ate together. Anyone else?

My search for packable, healthy vegan lunch ideas began out of serious HANGER. One day I forgot to pack my lunch on a particularly long day and I didn’t have time to pick something up from a drive-through, so I had no choice but to wait and wait and WAIT for dinner when I got home.

Let me remind you (if you can’t tell), I’m not one of those people that “forgets to eat.” What?! Who are you? I’m already thinking about the next meal when I’m eating the current one. Needless to say, I couldn’t take not eating for that long. So, I made a plan to pack my lunch from then on!

I found some super awesome healthy vegan lunches that are perfect for packing for work or school. Most of them you can meal prep on Sunday and enjoy for the rest of the week. All you need are some portable lunch containers and you’re good to go! I love these glass containers for my vegan meal prep. And if you’re looking for a divided container, Planetbox is the best!

I can’t wait to start making these meals to take to class with me. Enjoy these delicious healthy vegan lunches for work or school – I know you’ll find at least one you love!
