Brown bag lunch combos that'll make everyone at your table jealous


Tired of the same old turkey sandwich or icky drinkable yogurt? Revamp your brown bag lunches with these fresh ideas. Whether you’d rather be at a Mexican restaurant or enjoying English Tea, there’s a fresh new option for everyone at the table.

 

Tea Party

Fix up bite-size cucumber sandwiches with your favorite vegetable spread, perfect for teatime. Then package tiny sugar cookies, ladyfingers and scones of your choice, since you’ll be craving something sweet. An iced green tea will be the perfect accompaniment to refresh your mind before next period.

Mexicana

Pour Gazpacho into a thermos. No microwave required here- you eat this yummy vegetable soup cold. Bring chips and salsa, and unless you buy churros on the regular, add a slice of cinnamon bread for dessert.

 

Shape Shifting

Make you usual lunch more fun by changing up the shape. Take a cookie cutter to your sandwich and fruit. Melon holds up well in different shapes. Press star-shaped cantaloupe, heart-shaped watermelon and honeydew diamonds into a reusable container. This fruit salad-sandwich combo will be too cute to eat, and this lunch is perfect for the picky eater who’s looking for something a little sweeter.

 

Picnic Basket

Bring the backyard picnic to the cafeteria. Pack pasta salad- a combo of your fave noodles, feta cheese, vinaigrette and veggies. Then add a bag of potato chips and watermelon slices to the brown bag. Who says you can’t have a picnic indoors? All that’s missing is the apple pie.

 

Smooth Sailing

At home, blend Greek yogurt, banana, milk, ice and a handful of blueberries for a yummy smoothie. Pour into a thermos to enjoy at lunch. With your fruit and calcium all packed in, bring along a revamped peanut butter sandwich for added protein power. Combine peanut butter, slices of banana, drizzled honey and- surprise- granola between whole wheat bread for a deliciously sweet (and healthy) sandwich with a crunch that’ll totally compliment the purple smoothie.
