Four unexpected lunchbox ideas
Say sayonara to sandwiches
Monday is PB&J, Tuesday is ham and cheese, Wednesday is egg salad…you get the picture. While we love a good sandwich (especially on homemade bread), when you’re eating them day in and day out, it can get a little repetitive and boring.
To keep things interesting, we’ve collected some our favourite sandwich-free lunches to try. And the best part is, they’re just as easy to make as spreading some peanut butter on whole wheat bread. Here’s four unexpected lunchbox ideas to try this fall, whether the kids will be enjoying lunch at home or at school.
Popular with kids and adults alike, these whole wheat black bean and cheddar cheese quesadillas are easy to prep and even easier to eat. Serve with pre-packaged guacamole, carrot sticks and rice pudding for dessert.
It’s like having breakfast for dinner…but a few hours earlier. Make a few extra of your favourite pancakes on Sunday morning to enjoy for lunch on Monday. Serve with hardboiled eggs, cut up strawberries and yogurt.
There are few dishes that taste better after chilling in the fridge for a few hours (or days), but luckily for us, pasta salad is one of them. All five of these recipes are kid friendly lunchbox hits. Serve with snap peas, a clementine and chocolate covered raisins.
Trust us, there will be no lunch swapping when it comes to these pizza rolls. These homemade rolls taste just like the ones you get at the store, but are filled with veggies and protein. Make these rolls on the weekend to enjoy throughout the week. Serve with veggies and dip, apple sauce and a granola bar.
