3 Simple Lunch Ideas for Busy Moms
This post is sponsored by Boar’s Head, however, all opinions are my own.
As a mom of two who works from home, it can get pretty chaotic around lunch time in our house. Between fixing the kids what they want, them deciding they want something else, then begging them to eat just one thing – it can be hard to craft a great meal for myself. But, it’s not just stay at home moms who struggle with a complex lunch time, all moms do! I know when I was still working out of the home, I barely had a few minutes in the morning to throw something together for myself. And, the entire time, I had a crying baby on my hip who wanted my full attention. Let’s face it, it can just be plain hard and you only have a few minutes to make lunch for YOU. So, to combat the lunch time blues, I came up with 3 Simple Lunch Ideas for Busy Moms featuring Boar’s Head Simplicity line of products.
I love that their lineup is called “simplicity” because I am constantly trying to keep “mom life” simple. The Boar’s Head Simplicity line is comprised of organic and all-natural options with the same taste and quality of its core products. They currently have 6 different Deli-Fresh products in their services case model that offer a customized approach to deli meats. You can order these freshly sliced meats to the exact thickness and quantity you need! They also offer other deli fresh items pre-packaged like cheeses, meats, bacon, beef frankfurters and hummus. For the sake of “simple” and because they are straight delicious, each of these lunch ideas are crafted from Boar’s Head Simplicity lineup.
Mason Jar Salad
Mason Jar Salads were a big time go-to for me when I worked out of the house, because they are so simple to grab and go. You can easily prep them the night before or even on the weekend and have them fully ready so no prep time is required that morning. I layered mine with fresh lettuce, tomato, Boar’s Head Simplicity All Natural* tuscan brand roasted turkey breast, and Boar’s Head Simplicity All Natural* Mild Cheddar Cheese. If you have time, you could even add in Boar’s Head Simplicity All Natural Smoked* Uncured Bacon.
Turkey Avocado Roll Up
Another great option is a Turkey Avocado Roll Up. Simply lay out a tortilla, add in your choice of Boar’s Head Simplicity meat and cheese, then add extras like lettuce, avocado or tomatoes. You can even get creative with your sauce option and add ranch or hummus. To me, what really stands out in the roll up is the quality of the meat. The taste is so delicious and premium feeling. Plus, I love that I can get it cut in thin slices just like I like it.
Ham & Frankfurt Lettuce Wraps
Now, lettuce wraps are a great option if you are wanting to ditch the bread. But, if I’m ditching the bread, I like to mix it up a little beat with double meat. The Boar’s Head Simplicity All Natural* uncured beef frankfurters are a great option to pair with Boar’s Head Simplicity All Natural Uncured Ham or better yet, the Simplicity All Natural Uncured Genoa Salame. The Salame is my favorite, but I wanted to try out Ham this week too.
I hope these three Simple Lunch Ideas for Busy Moms help give you ideas for your lunch time blues. I highly suggest starting with a great product from the Boar’s Head Simplicity line. They are seriously the best tasting, most premium offering available in the all- natural organic deli segment. Many deli brands offer all-natural alternatives, but they really do not compete with the quality of Boar’s Head Simplicity. But, don’t take my word for it, check them out for yourself at your local grocery store! What is your go to lunch time favorite?
