10 Ideas for Your Lunch

When the work day calls for hard hats and heavy lifting, nothing satisfies the construction crew’s grumbling bellies more than hearty meals ready to fuel them up. From donut runs in between concrete pouring to PB&Js that come along on hammering missions – convenience is key! Whatever they choose from their lunchbox will give these men (and women!) of industry enough strength & sustenance so that when quitting time arrives, no jobsite remains unfinished.

At lunchtime, the hardworking construction crew knows they need fuel to power through ’til quitting time. Portable and convenient noms provide that much-needed pick-me-up without slowing them down with elaborate table settings or access to a microwave – just grab and go grub!

Option #1: Thick Loaf Sarnie

Sandwiches are one of the best lunch ideas for construction workers because they are convenient and portable. However, sandwiches can get soggy when they are prepared a few hours in advance. To make a sandwich that is fit to be eaten on a construction site, prepare it with thick slices of wholemeal bread.

Whether you like mayonnaise in your sandwiches, or another type of dressing, don’t put too much of it if you don’t want to eat a soggy sandwich.

Option #2: A wrap or a sub

For a mouthwatering meal that won’t leave you soggy, tortilla wraps are the way to go! Perfect for those who want their lunch on-the-go with all of their favorite fillings included. If your palate desires something portable and ready when you are, why not try subs which deliver big flavor without needing any sort of prepping?

Option #3: Meat pies or pasties

If you’re looking for a delicious, easy-to-eat lunch on the go – meat pies or pasties are your ticket! Not only do they taste great cold straight from the fridge, but heat them up in the microwave and it’s like having your own portable make n’ bake. With beef, potatoes and veggies all wrapped up into one tasty treat – guaranteed to keep hunger at bay ’til clock out time.

Option #4: Jerky or smoked sausages

If you’re a construction worker and want to construct the perfect lunch box, beef jerky or pork are your go-to! Not needing any refrigeration is such an advantage – meaning it’ll always be fresh when hungry tummies demand. And if that’s not enough protein for ya, spice things up with some smoked sausages accompanied by cheese and veggies. There you have yourself one delicious meal packed full of energy ready to fuel those hardworking days onsite!

Option #5: Roasted chicken

Who knew that yesterday’s roast chicken could be even tastier the next day? We’ve heard rumors of tantalizing cold-roasted flavor, and it seems like there are some out there who think leftovers can actually make for a more flavorful experience.

Take your leftover roast chicken to the next level with a delicious construction site lunch wrap! Have it tucked into either a tortilla or leafy salad for an easy-to-eat, handheld meal. Perfect for keeping you fueled throughout those long workdays!

Option #6: Potatoes in sour cream

Enjoy a delicious and creative lunch of creamy potatoes – perfect for any meal on-the-go! Just make sure to keep it cold – you don’t want your sour cream turning into something else completely. The only utensil you’ll need is a fork, so grab one before hitting the road. Bon Appetite!

Option #7: Mac and cheese

Construction workers, it’s time to go old-school and enjoy a classic lunch: mac ‘n’ cheese. Heat up the meal for best results, but don’t worry – even cold out of the fridge
it makes for one delicious lunch break! Don’t forget your fork either; cheesy fingers are great in their own way – just not suitable when you’re back onsite afterwards…

Option #8: A bowl of rice or couscous

If you’re a member of the hardworking construction crew and need something light for lunch, put your fork in gear and try out some rice or couscous! With just a few additions – such as meat, beans veggies, spices etc. you can create an exciting flavourful meal to enjoy on site every day. Now that’s working up an appetite we all want!

Option #9: Nuts and fresh fruits or vegetables

When that midday hunger strikes, don’t let it ruin your lunch break! Stash a bag of nuts – peanuts, almonds, cashews or Brazil nuts – for the perfect on-the-go snack. Or if you prefer something fresher and more colorful to bite into? Cut up some crunchy raw vegetables and juicy fruits: they’ll make mealtime feel like less of an inedible task.

Option #10: Easy Pasta Salad

Who said eating healthy had to be hard? With this greek pasta salad, you can have an easy and delicious meal without breaking a sweat. Just think of it as a healthy version of the classic macaroni salad. All you need is some cooked penne pasta, feta cheese, kalamata olives, a few tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables you might like. To finish things off, sprinkle on some oregano and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the perfect salty-tangy combo everyone loves. Serve up this yummy dish at your next family BBQ! Trust me, they’ll love it.
