You don't just have to be meatless on Monday. I mean, whether you want to eat seasonally, sustainably, or just straight-up healthily, spending a day sans meat is a great start to the week. What’s not so great is the mess my grain bowls, salads, or soups make. They aren’t that easy to pack (anyone else spilled dressing in their bag??) and leave stray grains and splashes at my desk.

No, it’s the handheld, travel-ready, self-contained sandwiches that are true lunchtime heroes. They might leave behind some crumbs, but won't burden you with oily, bulky containers or utensils to clean and carry. Eat them desk-side, park-side, in 10 minutes or leisurely hour-long lunch break. Plus, cutting out meat doesn't limit how delicious sandwiches can be—go ahead and experiment with breads, fillings, spreads, heat, or height. The next time you want a satisfying, low-mess meatless meal, make one of these 11 sandwiches. It doesn't even have to be Monday.
