These are yummy and relatively good for you (great if you're in a hurry and can't cut up veggies in the morning). I like to have veggies along with my sandwiches for lunch- it makes me feel virtuous even if I had a less-than-virtuous breakfast.
You can put virtually anything in here. We like to do with with leftovers- steamed green beans from last night, some cherry tomatoes, a little feta cheese, maybe some grated carrots and a little salsa. Anything goes here and if you cook the couscous the night before, it takes only a minute to assemble.
Some cut-up veggies, yummy tortilla chips (we LOVE the Food Should Taste Good brand) and hummus (pictured here is Sabra Toasted Pine Nut hummus). It's yummy and nutritious. I like a handful of dried cranberries or a piece of fruit along side.
Oatmeal is one of those awesomely versatile (and cheap!!!) meal options that works for breakfast, lunch or dinner in a pinch. I like a spoonful of peanut butter, some cut up banana and some pecans in mine. This is, coincidentally, what I ate for lunch today!
Here's my full lunch: oatmeal, a Chobani Greek Yogurt and a handful of carrots. This lunch fills me up well into dinner time and I don't get that weird 2pm sugar crash like I would with a super carby lunch. Plus, it's super yummy.
What about you??? Do you have any easy, cheap and healthy lunch ideas to share?
