Simple Healthy School Lunch Ideas

One of the most requested videos recently is for school lunch ideas.  I decided to oblige even though you all know I’m not in school.  These ideas are quick to put together (tried and true), work great for bringing your lunch to work and are pretty cheap.  Most importantly they are healthy and use mostly* non-processed foods.  The reason there are no salads on here is that I think they are a pain to make to bring to work.  You know they are healthy and you know you can bring one.  These ideas are suppose to be things you might not have thought to make on your own even though they are ridiculously simple.

Here are my four complete lunch ideas:

Lunch #1 - Meat and Dairy (Nix the cheese if you don’t do dairy)

Turkey Sandwich on Ezekial Bread with Sprouts, The Laughing Cow Blue Cheese Wedge and Mustard.

Apple

Almonds (about 15)

Lunch #2 - Vegetarian

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich on Ezekial Bread.

Single serving Greek Yogurt

Celery Sticks

Lunch #3 - Peanut Allergy/Vegetarian

Hummus, Swiss, Sprouts on Ezekial Bread

Greek Yogurt

Carrots

Lunch #4 - Eat Clean, lower carb

Turkey and Sprouts roll up with Mustard

1/2 sweet potato

Almonds (about 15)

Grocery List:

  • Ezekial Bread
  • Organic Peanut Butter
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Almonds
  • Turkey
  • Sprouts
  • Mustard
  • The Laughing Cow Blue Cheese Wedges
  • Yogurt (Preferably Greek Yogurt)
  • Sweet Potato
  • Celery or Carrots

Lastly, watch the video!  Stay tuned for more vegetarian lunch ideas.
