Lunch Box Boredom Busters {healthy lunches part 2}

Healthy lunch boxes can be more challenging to pack than they may seem! It is not that hard to come up with some ideas, but what is a bit more challenging is creating something new each day and not falling into the rut of packing the same lunch over and over. Bless my son’s heart, he probably ate PB&J with carrots sticks and some kind of fruit for 90% of his first grade career and he never even complained! Here are a some luncbox ideas to try to spice things up and keep your lunchbox from falling into a rut:

 

Entree Ideas Wraps: tortillas can be filled with leftover beans, chopped up meat or chicken and cheese for a yummy wrap to turn those left overs into something new Nut Butter sandwich- pair nut butter (coconut PB is yummy for coconut lovers) paired with jelly, raw honey or even apple slices. I usually use homemade sourdough for bread Hard boiled eggs Kabobs- mix up cubes of meats, cheeses and berries or cubed fruit and stick them on toothpicks for another great way to use up leftovers Grilled cheese Egg Salad, tuna fish Meat and cheese roll ups- thin slices of meat and cheese rolled up and stuck in a muffin liner or held together with a toothpick Cut up hotdogs without fillers/nasty stuff added (we love Applegate Farms) Breakfast for lunch- leftover breakfast meats such as sausages or bacon, with leftover pancakes, waffles or toast spread with plenty of butter or cream cheese Snacks and Sides Fruits: strawberries, blueberries, balled melons, apples, peaches, pears, plums, cuties, grapes, sliced kiwi etc… Veggies: sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas, ants on a stick (celery filled with peanut butter and topped with raisins or chocolate chips), mini peppers or colorful pepper slices, baby carrots etc… Cheese cubes Popcorn with butter sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan or a bit of salt or even a tiny sprinkling of salt and sugar for a salty and sweet treat Yogurt with berries, vanilla or honey Coconut Chips Trail mix: make your own with nuts, dried fruit, coconut chips and maybe throw in just a few chocolate chips once in a while as a treat

 

Sweet Treats Homemade popsicles- I’ve had my eye on these silicone molds for a while to make homemade ”Go-gurt” type yogurts or freeze as a popsicle treat Cookies Fruit and nut bars such as homemade Lara bars 5 Minute Candied nuts Fruit Roll ups (you can easily make your own! or find nice ones at a natural foods store) Coconut Macaroons Cookies, bars or muffins (lots of recipes)

What are your favorite items to pack in the lunch box? Please share them in the comments below!
