When you think food porn, you probably think of Instagram. There are multitudes of foodies that document their meals for the rest of us to drool over. Sometimes, they are totally out of reach as you’d have to travel to a different country to find them. In many cases, however, Instagrammers create meals you can copy at home so that lunch is never the same boring bologna sandwich again. Find yourself some accounts to follow, but in the meantime, try these tasty meals.
Chicken and veggies are great choices for lunchtime because they contain a good mix of fiber and protein, which satisfy your appetite and give you the energy you need to tackle your afternoon.

If you love sushi for lunch, you are going to adore this meal. It’s all your favorite sushi combined into one handheld pocket.

Get ready for envious stares from all your co-workers when you whip this out of your lunchbox.
Can’t give up your favorite lunchtime sandwich? You don’t have to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every single day though. Whipping up a quick grilled cheese is super fast and easy and adding tomato and avocado is simple and boosts the flavor and appetite suppressing qualities of the sandwich. Have some fruit on the side and you’re all set.

Not only does this taste really good, but it’s fast and easy to throw together so you won’t have to worry about running out of time to eat.
The great thing about cheese for lunch is that it contains protein and small amount of health fats for satiety and energy.

Pair it with a grilled chicken breast or salmon fillet to round things out.
There’s nothing easier than an antipasto platter for lunch. Simply choose your favorite meats and cheeses and pile them on your chosen crackers. You can pair them with fruit, olives or nuts.
