There are a few constants in life.

And the one big question that we’ll always ask ourselves with a mixture of excitement and bewilderment is: “What’s for lunch?” Every day, until the end of time.

Though we’re all motivated by different things, I know that if I’ve got a healthy and delicious lunch lined up, I’m sure to plow through my work a lot faster. I can stay focused and productive without worrying about rushing to get a meal together or ordering takeout between meetings when lunch hour hits.

Lettuce wraps are the underrated lunch you didn’t know you needed. I realize that the idea of lettuce may not excite you as much as let’s say – sourdough bread. But stick with me. Lettuce is the perfect blank canvas to let your main ingredients take center stage. It will enhance the flavor in whatever filling you choose, plus, lettuce wraps are one of the easiest meal prep ideas around. Just have your filling ready to go, put it together, and boom you’ve got a meal in under five minutes.

Not only is lettuce the most versatile canvas for your protein, taco fillings, or sautéed veggies, it also won’t weigh you down. We’ve rounded up some of our absolute favorite lettuce wrap recipes that will have your healthy lunches (and dinners!) covered. From juicy burgers to delicious fish “tacos” to some flavorful veg options – these are amazing dishes that will bring your WFH lunch to the next level. Just remember, when it comes to lettuce wraps, there are no rules. So get those creative juices flowing and top your greens with whatever sounds tasty!
