Whether you want to eat healthier or save money, bringing your lunch is one of the easiest ways to accomplish both. The only problem is that bringing your lunch can get incredibly boring if you pack the same turkey and swiss or PB&J day in and day out. So today, we have a bunch of new healthy lunch recipes for you to try out.

18 Delicious & Wallet-Friendly Lunches

Plus, our friends over at Big Girls Small Kitchen and Small Kitchen College are hosting a brown bag week of their own. Here are the 3 ways you can get involved:

2. Check out their Brown Bag Lunch Pinterest board for all kinds of recipes. (We’ll be sharing recipes there too!)

3. Join the #brownbag Twitter chat on Wednesday, July 13th from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. EST. @RealSimpleFood will be chatting as well.
