Most days of the week, Mark’s Big-Ass Salad is the best lunch for his day. But not everyone would say the same, and that works, too. On days when you crave something different for lunch, the most convenient and money-saving solution is packing up leftovers from the night before. Pack as much or as little as you want, throw together some tasty Primal sides, and you’re good to go. To offer a little inspiration toward your midday meal prep, here are five dinners that make excellent lunches the next day. Be sure to share yours in the comment board as well!

Pulled pork + Primal Cornbread + Coleslaw
Pulled pork + Hard boiled eggs + Macadamia Balls

Every time you make soup, like this Aromatic Beef Soup with Mushrooms and Chard or a simple 10-Minute Seaweed Soup (pictured), ladle a single serving into a resealable plastic bag and freeze it. Pop that frozen bag into your lunchbox, and it will mostly be defrosted by lunch. Yes, a hot bowl of soup does require a microwave at the office. Or, pack up a refreshing cold soup.
