For lunch next week I'll be packing Indian food! I made Chana Masala (chickpeas swimming in a spiced tomato sauce) and cumin-scented roasted cauliflower, which I'm eating with some whole wheat flat bread and whole wheat cauliflower roti.

Lunch for my boys at school: Whole wheat pasta with parmasean cheese and olive oil in a thermos. Small salad in a reusable container with an individual serving of salad dressing in another small container (small enough to fit into the same container as the salad---better protection from spills.) Carrot sticks and watermelon chunks.

I love to pack my own lunch for school! It's healthy and cheaper than paying for the processed meals my school offers. One of my favorite lunches to bring would be a spice rubbed grilled chicken pita topped with fresh spinach and a little bit of seasoned greek yogurt using the same seasoning mixture from the chicken (salt, pepper, paprika, cinnamon, and a little cumin normally does the trick). Then I serve it with a reusable container filled with leftover spaghetti squash from the night before toped with my favorite all-natural corn and black bean salsa. A fresh apple makes for a nice burst of freshness and sweetness to finish off the meal. As for a beverage I normally take a reusable water bottle yet, sometimes I'll make my own iced green tea and pack that in an old jar for transport:).

One of my favorite lunches! Peanut butter and jam on whole grain bread....I sprinkle a tablespoon of ground flax seed over the peanut butter for extra goodness. Several kiwis sliced in a container, an apple and carrot sticks. Got to have milk with the p & j, so I usually include a container of Horizon milk.

Leftover chickpea and quinoa salad with salsa, cucumber, celery over a bed of spinach greens. Topped with a handful a raisins and sunflower seeds. A nice ripe peach and a bottle of home brewed mixed teas. For a treat a homemade chocolate cherry cookie that's made with almond butter for lower fat (only 2 Tbsp in a whole batch). Super yummy and healthy too.

Leftover salad. I always keep a bag or head of lettuce. My lunches on days that I work include the salad mix and whatever leftovers are in my fridge. My favorites are rice, peas, chicken or any other meat, and any random veggie that has been leftover from previous meals. ADD dressing and a fork. YUM!

I love doing one of two lunches for lunch: 1. Kale Wraps. Basil sweet potatoes and brown lentils and quinoa wrapped with kale. 2. Yummy-itas. Chopped red pepper, quinoa, black beans, seaweed, lime juice, feta cheese and tomatos stuffed in a whole grain pita.

I'm a vegetarian and Weight Watcher, and cannot heat up my food at work. My standard bag consists of whole wheat bread sandwich filled with different vegies (red boston lettuce, olives, sliced tomatoes, and cheese, a bag of usually 2 vegies, like orange pepper and cukecumber or black olives, and fruit. My later snack is usually pretzels with raisins or similar combination. I also use the vegie meats I buy at Whole foods for sandwiches Thanks for all the ideas.

My go-to lunch is a big homemade salad, because it keeps me going! A huge pile of greens (I use the organic romaine hearts and add in whatever greens came in my CSA), shredded carrots, 1/4 to a 1/2 of an avocado diced, 1/2 can of tuna packed in oil (sustainable of course!), homemade honey mustard dressing, and whatever veggies came in my CSA or were local and on special at Whole Foods. This week, that means Armenian cucumbers and green onions! I alternative the tuna and dressing with roasted chicken breast and a homemade Asian maple-peanut dressing.

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.

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.
