3 super easy lunchtime swaps

 
 
We all know toting your own lunch it is the way to go – you save money, conserve environmental resources and you get to choose what you’ll be chowing down on. But bringing PB&J day after day gets boring fast. Here are three easy-to-make, healthy and yummy lunches to start the year off right.

Mini subs
Push aside the sliced bread and use a hot dog bun to create an adorable sub sandwich – load up your favorite toppings, like grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, cheese, dressing, etc. Bonus if you make one that’s all veggies.

That’s a wrap
Sick of sandwiches? Try a wrap-a-roo. Put together a Tex-Mex option with chicken, beans, rice, salsa, cheese and salsa in a tortilla for some South-of-the-Border fun. Looking for vegetarian fare? Pick your favorite greens, add a little salad dressing and voilà! A fresh lunch option that you can switch up a little every day.

Slurpin’ some soup
Grab a thermos and fill it up the night before with an easy to make soup recipe, like this one. Super quick to make – and perf to grab and go in the morning!
