I know how hard it is to stay motivated packing lunch boxes every day.
Sometimes, I feel like I’m on a roll and other times it feels like I have no idea what to pack.
Ironically, it’s usually on those hard days that I come up with new ideas or remember good ones that that I’d forgotten about.
I try to use leftovers from dinner, but it’s not always possible.
Either way, I try to focus on packing a decent amount of protein as well as a nice variety of other options. Then, I always include a treat.
Today, I’m sharing 5 lunches that I’ve packed for my son over the past few weeks.
As always, I pack familiar, comforting foods for lunch and save new foods to introduce dinnertime or on the weekends when we all eat together.
Scrambled egg sandwich (held together with a toothpick), blood oranges, edamame, granola bars and dried cherries.
Chickenless Orange Nuggets, apples, chocolate waffle with Earth Balance, yogurt pretzels and pumpkin seeds.
Black bean and cheese taquitos, sautéed carrots, pretzels, pineapple, candy corn.
Baked potato, peas, baked tofu, pumpkin seeds and chocolate chip cookies.
Scrambled eggs with carrots, mix of pumpkin seeds and golden raisins, apples, honey pretzels and candy corn.
