Grilled chicken tenders, sliced, sautéed onion, red, yellow and green peppers in a pinch of olive oil. Spread on bread, hummus and mustard, on whole grain foccassia bread. Serve with one serving of organic grapes and a refreshing glass of lime (pure) water (lime slices in pure water). It is absolutely delicious and a family favorite when we picnic as well. ENJOY!!!

Grill 2 filets from Whole Foods, frozen wild sockeye salmon. Cool and mash up (like tuna fish in a can) in a container - for a week's worth of sammiches :). Toast 2 slices rye or whole grain bread, spread light chive & onion cream cheese on both slices then add about 1/2c or enough to make a small sandwich. Side of baby carrots and handful of unsalted almonds or walnuts and plenty of water or green tea. Lunch!

Start off with a small mixed green salad, throw in some dried cranberries, feta cheese, and a scoop of walnuts. Take a side of light raspberry vinagrette to add just before you are ready to eat. Next, a classic PB&J sandwich on seven grain bread. Spread the slices with freshly ground peanut butter (or almond butter!) from Whole Foods as a great source of protein and then a layer of real strawberry preserves. For a sweet finish to lunch, mash a banana in a microwave safe cup or bowl, heat for 20-30 seconds. Sprinkle with cinnamon and a little sugar for a serving of fruit and a tasty treat! Delicious!

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 sometimes make my husband fish sandwiches for lunch and he loves them! I use whole wheat toast, hummus, a fish fillet (usually leftover from dinner), tomato, onion, and lettuce. I also pack him granola bars, an apple or banana, and celery with peanut butter. Everyone at work always says how lucky he is that his wife packs his lunch. :)

Quinoa salad with chickpeas and an array of veggies in it (blanched green beans, cubed yellow squash, diced tomato, diced cucumber, and other veggies you have on hand) dressed with a smoked paprika and basil lime dressing. Finish that off with a piece of fruit, like the gorgeous plums that are in stores now - YUM!

My whole family LOVES sardines or canned tuna, crackers, and cheese. This is a great meal I can grab (mostly!)from the cupboard, packs well, and requires minimum refrigeration, so its perfect for boating or picnics. I start with the Back to Nature Chedder Flax cracker, then a smear of avocado and a bit of fish for my children, ages 2 and 4. Depending on their mood, I may add additional veggies. My husband and I will usually top our crackers with of a bit of fish, thin shaved red onion, and a thinly sliced cherry tomato. We then sprinkle a little cheese, maybe A St. Agur or Humboldt Fog goat's milk...a little goes a long way so we can afford to splurge. We complete our meal with carrots, celery, and seasonal fruit. Mmmmm....yum!

I pack for my husband and I'm a SAHM, so it's usually homemade goodies! A homemade granola bar and orange juice to eat on the way to work, a fresh chopped salad, dressing on the side. Either grilled chicken to throw over the top or half a tuna sandwich. A yummy, freshly made fruit salad, yogurt or homemade fruit leather for snacking. Once in a while if he's feeling adventureous I'll throw in some snickerdoodles or chocolate chip cookies. He hasn't complained yet!

As I don't have a way to heat up food I love to make a big batch of healthy eggrolls that can be eaten cold from my brown bag. I saute garlic, onions, pine nuts, shredded carrots and cabbage with olive oil. Add some ginger or lemongrass. The I take that mixture and roll up into wonton wrappers and instead of deep frying I put in a skillet with a little oil and keep turning on each side until they are brown and crispy. The eggrolls keep for several days in the frig at home. (My husband loves them as a snack when he gets off 2nd shift) This is a great way to get veggies and protein from the pine nuts. Plus they are very portable. I usually pair with brown rice and a salad to round out the meal.

Today my lunch was a conglomeration of leftovers: romaine lettuce, bell peppers, carrots, cucumber, almonds and dried cranberries; sauteed lightly seasoned tofu; and quinoa with oranges and pistachios. All served mixed up, cold and in one tupperware. YUM!

Nitrate-free turkey and salami, and Havarti cheese, with mayo, fresh ground pepper, lettuce, and tomato. On multigrain bread, with cantaloupe and blueberries on the side. Yum!

I love this wrap: A whole-wheat tortilla (Ezekiel brand) Roasted red-pepper hummus as a light spread Mixed herbs/salad greens Sliced cherry tomatoes, green &/or black olives, bell peppers Shredded carrots and cabbage (like from a slaw mix) Some nuts or seeds for texture A little tuna (or sliced chicken or turkey if I have it) It's basically a salad in a wrap, with a little hummus to hold it together. It tastes so fresh, and it's easy to transport. I usually take it with a side of an apple or a bag of green grapes for a fresh, cool lunch.

Today I'll be feasting on Nature's Path organic Maple Nut hot oatmeal mixed with a handful of crushed organic raw walnuts. My oatmeal will be washed down with my daily Green Smoothie which consists of organic spinach/kale/chard, fresh ginger, organic lemon juice, organic apple, organic banana, organic celery, ground flax seeds and filtered water.

I had my husband grill some eggplant, zuchinni, yellow squash and corn - I let it cool and chopped them up, mixed in some lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. This morning I made some brown rice, mixed it with some of the veggies and topped with a dab of parmesan cheese. One minute in the microwave and I was all set. Plus I have lunch for all week and I can change the taste by adding different cheese or seasonings all week.

I love putting hummus on a whole wheat wrap and adding roasted red peppers and avocado. For a treat I have celery sticks dipped into almond butter.

Made from as many organic items as I can find: whole grain wrap with homeade hummus and tabbouli, glass of milk and a bannana. Yum.
