Lunch is a red lentil soup with fire roasted diced tomatoes and lots of garlic. A container of French vanilla yogurt mixed with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts frozen from the freezer. A container of frozen blueberries and raspberries mixed together. A fresh peach and a cup of sesame sticks and almonds and a glass of hibiscus tea with local honey.

I love lettuce wraps instead of a bread sandwich. My favorite is turkey and avocado on red leaf lettuce! It is so crunchy and a great way to get more veggies in my meal.

1) Whole-grain crispbread crackers, spread with hummus, topped with thinly sliced cucumber and carrot, drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil, and sprinkled with salt and pepper. 2) Slices of fresh tomato and mozzarella, with strips of basil for garnish. 3) Fruit, sliced, to dip into almond butter.

Chicken or tuna salad, cheese slices, crackers, grapes, lemon infused water that is frozen in a bottle to keep the lunch chilled.

Steamed mixed greens tossed with your favorite hot sauce. Nestle that ontop of a bed of mixed whole grains that is topped with a puree of cannellini beans. The bean puree begins to mix with the grains and becomes risotto-like.In every bite you get texture and spice. Ciao, Bella!

My favorite lunch consists of lentils mixed with quinoa and amaranth, well seasoned with cayenne, cumin, and seaweed, along with a salad and a piece of fresh fruit for dessert. I do not like using microwaves, and this is something that I can eat cold. If I'm extra hungry, I add a piece of cheese or some nuts to round it out.

For lunch this week I'm making turkey avocado sandwiches. - two slices of white bread - 3 slices of deli turkey meat - 4 slices of avocado - 2 slices of tomato - ranch dressing (instead of mayo) I like to have grapes and a small salad of baby mixed greens dressed with balsalmic dressing. It's healthy and delicious :)

Packet of smoked salmon (eat out of packet with fork), whole red bell pepper (eat it like an apple!), kettle cooked potato chips, and a crisp apple. This is my favorite grab-and-go lunch that I will often take to mountain bike races. Requires zero preparation and survives the heat. :D

I'm taking leftover homemade vegetarian pinto beans and sauteing them up in a little olive oil to make re-fried beans. I'll also be making a chunky guacamole and salsa. These will be eaten with organic corn/soy/flaxseed tortilla chips. Mmmm, great way to satisfy those Tex-Mex cravings.

I fill my water bottle halfway with water and put it in the freezer the night before. Then whatever I'd like to drink with my lunch I pour on top in the morning. The huge ice cube keeps it cool all day long!

Some co-workers and I used to "share the burden". We would each take turns bringing in leftovers or planned-overs. We would eat lunch together, which lends to healthier, slow-paced eating, and we were often treated by new dishes and one anothers' specialties. I liked to try new dishes and cuisines and one of the ladies is from Afghanistan so the meals were always a delightful surprise. I got to try so many things that I may never have been exposed to.

I make a peanut butter and banana sandwich on whole wheat. I make 2 slits (for eyes and add 2 chocolate chips) for the mouth I slit it and place a small amount of jelly (for color effect for the smile). Its for my PICKY 6 yr old daughter. It makes her smile at school and she'll eat it all up! I also like to buy carrots with the green leafy tops because she likes to eat it like bugs bunny lol

I prefer packing lunch for the kids when I Know we will be on\ the go all day. I pack a lunch for me too - turkey and swiss rolled and tucked into a whole wheat pits with some crisp sliced cucumbers, add a couple of juicy, sweet clementines, a handful of almonds and maybe some sweet snap peas and I am good to go!

I pack my three daughters' lunch every day during the school year. Since I don't send them with processed foods, I have to be creative so their lunches are fun. I usually pack them a sandwich on Ezekiel bread (cheese or hummus) and then cut the sandwich into a holiday shape using a cookie cutter. I include either carrots or peppers in a bento container and make a fruit salad of strawberries, blueberries and grapes. Sometimes I make them a 'banana boat' which is a banana with a dollop of homemade whipping cream and some dark chocolate chips on top. Finally, I put in another bento container and fill it with some black or pinto beans. My girls never miss school and I attribute it to their healthy lunches!
