17 Dinner Recipes That Make Great Leftover Lunches!! Perfect for those of us who want to grab something and head to work in the morning without any (or very little) prep work!
Whenever I buy something expensive I justify it to myself by saying "ok so if it's 500 bucks but I use it every single day for years and years and year, then really it's only a few cents a day." Makes sense right? So when I spend 20, 30, 40 minutes in the kitchen, I get really pumped when I can use the same meal and turn it into lunch the following day. Anyone else?? So in honor of that - here are 17 of my favorite dinner recipes that you can turn into lunch the following day!
Easy Mexican Shredded Chicken! Throw it into a wrap, burrito, or quinoa salad and you're set.

Southwestern Sweetpotato Bowls - spoon up a serving and you're set.
Yogurt Marinated Chicken Kebabs - put them on top of a salad and voila!
