It’s hard to believe that another school year is just around the corner. Getting back into the swing of things is tricky after weeks of freedom, but I always find that I’m ready for routine by the end of July. Part of that routine is getting back to packing lunches at night, so I’m not stressing in the morning! I’m always looking for new lunch ideas and thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites with you!
Cold veggie pizza is one of my favorite lunch foods! I love that I can make it once and eat it for an entire week! I love the combination of the ranch sauce and the vegetables. I also included trail mix, clementines, and an energy bar for after school. Can you tell that I love finger foods?!
The gel-lined walls keep my lunch cool for hours!
Next up, is tuna fish and more finger foods!
If I’m being completely honest, I could eat tuna fish every, single day. My mom says that it has too much mercury, (insert eye roll) so I try to limit myself to once or twice a week. I love these customizable bento containers because the dividers keep all the foods from touching. The snack container is perfect for separating my veggies and ranch dip!
Salads are another great option for a healthy lunch. I love that I can make the dressing, wash up some veggies/fruit, and have another meal that I can eat over multiple days.
The lunch bento is the perfect size for a salad and dressing. A salad is never quite enough to get me through the day, so hard boiled eggs and almonds are a must!
Another simple idea is a turkey wrap, chips and salsa, cheese, and fruit.
I love that I can fit a number of different food options into two containers! In the past, I used plastic baggies and would throw them away after each use. What a waste! These bento containers are eco-friendly and dishwasher safe!
Another easy lunch is a chicken salad wrap. To add a little variety, sometimes I change out the chicken salad for egg salad, tuna salad, or turkey salad!
I hope this post gave you some fresh new ideas for Back to School lunches! Tell us your favorite lunch ideas in the comments!
