For the Meat-Eaters:
Not all sandwiches are for lunches! This is a great sandwich for families or for meal prepping. It seems like it would take a lot of time, but this can be made within 30 minutes. We recommend using shredding claws to make the shredding process a breeze. See our favorite kitchen gadgets post for our favorite claws.

Despite not having cheese, this sandwich has a great creaminess from the avocado and egg salad- then mixed with the savory, salty bacon and crunchy bread… Mmm!

Bagel sandwiches work great for packed lunches. They don’t get as soggy and squished as regular bread. For a lighter meal- cut this in half and pair with a fresh salad.

Avocado, goat cheese and spinach make the perfect combination in this one. Creamy and nutritious, green and fresh, and some lean protein from the turkey. This should be a new regular.

No time in the morning to make breakfast before heading out the door? These are for you. Just take from the freezer, heat up in a microwave or toaster oven and you’re good to go. It tastes just as fresh as if you woke up early to make them.

For the Plant-Eaters:
Grilling optional. This one you can make at work- no smushed sandwich or browning bananas. At the beginning of the week bring some bread and a jar of peanut butter to work and hide it away in the office kitchen. Then just bring a banana to work with you everyday (to make sure co-workers aren’t making off with your bananas..). Takes only a couple minutes and a knife to prepare!

For the vegetarians out there this sandwich is your perfect mix of protein and healthy fats. Pro tip: the avocado egg salad also makes a great spread for other sandwiches too!

This sandwich is pretty light and low-calorie, but full of nutrients and fiber. Some days we just need a lighter sandwich option. Add tofu or tempeh for a boost of protein and a slightly heartier option.

Roasted eggplants are a great option for vegetarian sandwiches, as they help to give a more savory, deeper depth of flavor. For extra protein, add some tempeh. The crumbly texture with the soft eggplant is magic.

For the Low-Carb Eaters:
This 4 ingredient sandwich is simple but tastes so fresh and earthy, yet savory and a tad salty. Bacon makes every low-carb sandwich taste a bit more endulgent.

Who’s going to miss bread when bacon is your bread?! Need we say more?
