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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
