The winter weather over here kinda put a wrench in my schedule this week so I was a little off my game in the lunch department. Not to worry though, I still have a few ideas for you!
But first, Teresa @ Vivacious Running Girl sent me a pic of her adorable embroidered lunch bag! Check it out:
And here’s the lunch bag I’m coveting this week:
In case you’re new to Lindsay’s Lunchbox, it’s a weekly feature on my blog where I post a few healthy lunch ideas. In addition, people send me pics of things they ate for lunch this week. I compile them all into these posts, thus providing everyone reading with a one-stop shop for lunchtime inspiration! Did you eat something great for lunch this week? Next time, snap a picture and email it to me at email@example.com!
Now for the food ideas:
I think if I let him, my hubby would eat everything I make wrapped in a tortilla. In fact, almost all leftovers get turned into a taco the next day day for lunch. This week I jumped on board and turned my leftover nacho toppings into a taco, because we all know how soggy and gross chips get if you put them in the fridge. Along the same lines, make sure you pack your taco filling and your tortilla separately in your lunchbox to avoid sogginess.
2. Pasta Salad
I love pasta salad because it’s a great way to get your veggies. Veggies always taste better to me if there are noodles to go along with them 🙂 Plus, most pasta salads taste just as good cold as they do warm, making them a perfect addition to my lunchbox. This week I brought leftover Orzo & Veggie pasta salad with me. In the warmer months, I’m sure I’ll whip up more than a few batches of this Chickpea Pasta Salad with Italian dressing.
3. Homemade soft pretzels
Who doesn’t love soft pretzels?! And do you know how easy it is to make them at home? This weekend I whipped up a batch of homemade pretzel bites and I enjoyed some in my lunch everyday until Tuesday when they were all gone…
Lindsey @ Lovin’ My Life sent me a pic of her go-to spinach salad!
