With early mornings and long days, there’s not a lot of time to make well-thought-out lunches. Schools may have made their lunch menus more healthy, but they can quickly get old and don’t always fill your stomach.
So what do you do?
Here is one great idea to help lunch making be easier and faster each morning:
Start by getting two containers, one for the fridge and one for the pantry. In the fridge container, fill it with a week’s worth of lunch sides. Some good ideas include yogurt, string cheese, veggies (i.e. carrots), fruits (i.e. apples, grapes, etc.), etc. With the pantry container, fill it with a week’s worth of lunch snacks. Some good snacks include small bags of chips, granola bars, fruit snacks, crackers, cookies, etc.
For your main dish, sandwiches can be made the night before or in the morning. Leftovers also make great lunches.
