High-Protein Lunch Ideas

1. Salmon Patties

I combine seven simple ingredients for this recipe for salmon patties.

When I was a young girl growing up on a farm, my mother frequently prepared these when we were late to the field.

2. Tuna Cheese-Waffle 

I adore cheddar crepes (or chaffles) as well as tuna salad sandwiches.

Combining them creates an excellent midday sandwich. The dill cucumbers lend crunch and flavor to both the waffles and salad. 

3. Zucchini Noodles

I adore fast and colorful dishes like this one-pan marvel.

If you tasted it, you'd think it took much more time to prepare, but it's ready in thirty minutes. 

4. Greek Chicken Pasta

This substantial main dish has a flavor profile reminiscent of the Mediterranean. 

5. Chicken Salad

My husband and I ordered and relished this salad three times from Applebee's before eventually requesting the dressing ingredients.

She graciously shared the recipe with us, and I now frequently prepare the salad with its piquant dressing. 

6. Lettuce Wraps

This simple slow cooker recipe is a Sunday afternoon favorite. It is comforting and light for both lunch and supper.

Ours are served with oven-baked sweet potato fritters and roasted green asparagus.
