47 Practical, Quick, and Easy Lunch Ideas

Most days I totally disregard lunch until I’m hungry. At that point, I usually just look into the fridge to see what I can find… usually I don’t find much.

I’ve often thought that having a list of practical, quick, and easy lunches would be a great resource for me to look over when I’m stumped on what to make. As a result, I have compiled a list of 47 practical, quick, easy, and inexpensive lunches to choose from whenever I really don’t know what to have for lunch. Feel free to pin this, print it or just refer back to it when you are wondering what to make for lunch as well.

It was perfect that I created this list because today at Target while I was shopping for lunch items I noticed that they are having a huge sale on Kraft cheeses from 9/14/14-9/20/14!! Buy 5 select Kraft Cheese products for $10!

There are sooo many combinations, lunches, and meals that can be made with Kraft cheese (as you’ll see in my list below). So now is a great time to head over to Target and stock up!

Here is a link to the Target weekly circular/ad that shows the amazing Kraft deal they have going on. Stock up now so you can make the lunch ideas below!
