So you’ve vowed to only eat clean, whole and unprocessed foods this month. (You’re amazing.) But when you’re late and frazzled and running out the door, it’s all too easy to reach for the PB&J…or order takeout for lunch. We’re making it easy: Here are 30 clean-eating lunches to whip up this month.

How Mindful Eating Could Change Your Whole Damn Life

Greek Goddess Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Might want to get extra napkins for these guys.

Avocado Chickpea Salad Sandwich

At this performance, avocado will be playing the role of mayo and chickpeas will be playing the role of tuna.

Cheese in moderation is allowed on a typical clean eating diet—so go easy on the mozz, OK?

Way better than salad (but just as healthy).

Spring Roll Bowls

Chopsticks mandatory.

Just like Grandma used to make (but a million times lighter).
