We get it. Time is short, deadlines are looming and hunger has officially struck. If you don’t have time for a leisurely lunch during the day—but don’t want a boring brown bag (who does?)—try our easy and delicious seafood lunches that you can prep and pack in minutes.

Seafood for lunch? You bet. Not only is it an easy way to get in one of your 2-3 seafood meals each week, but seafood is loaded with healthy fats like omega-3s and protein. The omega-3s in seafood—DHA, and EPA—are important for many reasons, including boosting brain health and focus. Plus, seafood is a complete protein, to help keep your energy up throughout the day and prevent that post-lunch slump.

These lunches are packed with heart-healthy omega-3s and protein, which will help keep your energy up and prevent that post-lunch slump. In fact, these lunches are so delectable that you’ll be watching the clock all morning.

We are going to share an a-mazing Avocado Tuna Salad plus some other fun variations on seafood lunches.  These lunches are so delectable that you’ll be watching the clock all morning, eagerly awaiting your lunch break. Between the blend of flavors and fish options, you’ll never be bored with your brown bag lunch again. These dishes will also help you reach your goal of two seafood servings a week, to meet seafood recommendations.
