so I'm starting school again next week and realized I have no idea what to bring for lunch. last year I would rely on the salad bar for lunch but this year I'd like to try to bring my own healthy non-cafeteria-lame-excuse-for-lettuce salads. Any sandwich ideas (I like pretty much everything in my sandwiches but tomatos )? or anything else that has easy morning prep?
I bring lunch to school and work all the time. I usually chop up a bunch of raw verggies like bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, etc. and put it in a sectioned plastic container with hummus in one of the sections. Then I just dip and eat. Some vegetables like carrot sticks and pea pods don't need any prep. Then in another section of the container I usually throw in some dry cereal or trail mix, and I stick a piece of fruit in my purse. If you like sandwiches you could put a pita pocket and knife in the container and assemble the sandwich at lunch.
Otherwise, I make brown rice or lentils or whatever the night before and just stick it in a container to take with me. But I like the sectioned container lunch because it's quick and delicious and doesn't require any cooking or utensils or anything.
