|Saw this online and it made me laugh. Don't ask me about lunch packing in May. Ha!|
Things I like to Have on hand for lunch packing:
-100 cal packs of nuts
-Lean Cuisines for those crazy weeks when I just cannot. Haha
-100 calorie popcorn
Things I like to prep for lunch packing:
-Black Bean Veggie Skillet: I toss 2 cans of black beans with 1 packet microwave brown rice, and add garlic sauteed grape tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, peppers, and a bit of taco seasoning
-Chicken Salad: grilled chicken, crushed almonds, kidney beans, carrots, over greens. I've yet to find the perfect salad dressing container so I usually put dressing in a little glad container with a baggie on it.
-Adult Lunchable: deli meat, string cheese, pita chips or crackers, apple sauce, 100 cal nut pack, dark chocolate pieces or a ready to go Hilshire Farms one
-Oatmeal Cup: oats and cinnamon with mix-ins like nuts, raisins, banana, berries etc.
-Leftovers: I love getting Papa Murphy's pizza and then packing a slice or two for lunch the next day.
-Veggie Fajitas: peppers and onions sauteed with salsa and served with tortilla and avocado slices
Ideas I want to try:
-A whole wheat tortilla with peanut butter, berries, and granola
|This lunch box from Hippie Food Mom is major goals|
Lots of Wrap Ideas
-This website has tons of great lunch box inspiration
|Taco Salad to go from Damn Delicious|
Here's to easy lunch packing and if you're a teacher like me, I wish you a lunch break with time to use the bathroom, check your mailbox, socialize with colleagues, check your email, and sit down and enjoy that yummy lunch you packed yourself!
Savor Your Sparkle,
