What’s In Your Lunchbox?

Sure the classic peanut butter & jelly sandwich is a quick & easy staple but is it nutritious?  Lunchables are another easy lunch item but what nutritional value do they have?  This may leave you wondering – how can I pack lunches that are quick, tasty AND nutritious?

My suggestion to you is to think about what you want to eat and plan ahead!  Packing is a lot easier when you plan it out.  Whether you’re going back to school or work, we have some great quick meals that can be lifesavers.  And yes I recommend buying a lunchbox with a freezer pack.  They make them pretty stylish these days so no embarrassing moments.  Here are some of my favorites:

While you’re out buying your lunchbox, don’t forget to pick up some Rubbermaid containers for after school or mid-day work snacks.  Here are some to try:

  •  Fresh fruit – grapes, banana, pre-peeled oranges or even an apple with 1 tbsp of peanut butter
  • Low-fat string cheese
  • Light hummus with whole wheat pita baked chips
  • Pita or baked tortilla chips with fresh salsa
  • 1 ounce of walnuts, pistachios or almonds  (be careful of allergies when sending with your little ones)

The key to planning your meals for the day is to cross utilize!  Think about how you can turn last night’s entrée into a simple sandwich.  Whatever you do – make sure you plan first, then prep and assemble.

What are some of your favorite lunch ideas?
