I recently joined a new place of work and wasn’t sure if they had a microwave at the office. Because your girl’s gotta eat, I started searching for no heat lunches I could carry with me as soon as I left work.

While you may be able to eat a hot lunch every day you are at work, knowing some cold lunch recipes that you can make will come in handy. Whether you have no microwave at work or have no energy to heat your food after a long day, having no reheat lunch recipes that taste good cold or at room temperature is needed.

There are meat, fish, and vegetable dishes that can work just as well at room temperature as they do when fresh out of the oven or off the cooker. And those are absolutely the perfect thing for you to bring for lunch.

These no-heat lunches will get you excited for lunch without sacrificing flavour or adding pre-lunch preparation. What’s not to like about that?
