This week it's a sandwich on wheat bread - Smart Deli's "ham" slices with Monterey Jack cheese and a little mayo, Washington Cherries, and a cucumber/yogurt/dill salad. It's 10:30 right now, and I can't wait until noon!

When we have leftovers from our weekly BBQs I make a salad for work made of organic wheat pasta, my marinated (leftover) grilled veggies (zucchini, red bell peppers, eggplant, red onions), some fresh basil, fresh tomato pieces and skim mozarella pieces and a marinade of Olive oil and Aceto Balsamico. Sooo good!

Organic Horseradish Egg Salad sandwich. All ingredients are organic :) A dash of mustard; chopped celery, onion, and tomato; a tablespoon of Horseradish, and a few teaspoons of plain yogurt (much healthier than mayo) with 2 sliced boiled eggs, served on a pita bread. I usually eat this with an apple.

Just because is packed, doesn't mean it has to be boring! Since I try to eat every 3 hours. I would start with a cup of Quinoa, 6 boiled eggs. LUNCH: Whole wheat wrap, herb chicken cut into pieces, blue cheese, crusted pecans, chopped tomatoes, avocado, and fat free shredded cheese. with a side of RAW almonds from whole foods (THE BEST) ! MAybe a bottle of ZICO coconut water :) yay! The whole deal about having packed lunch, is to feel hommie. My husband always tells me he has better days at work when he brings his packed lunch from home, wheter buying something out! It's like he carries a little piece of home with him. So whether, it's your kids or husband MAKE IT FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've been brown baggin' it for almost 5 years now. Well, more like 'reusable baggin' it. 3 of my 4 children are allergic to dairy and 2 are also allergic to gluten. This has proven to be a challenge when it comes to convenience. Their typical lunch and required morning snack usually consists of: apple slices and sunbutter (snack), and tofu salad on gluten free bread, air popped popcorn with olive oil, nutritional yeast, and Bragg Aminos, and carrot sticks (lunch). They drink water or herbal tea sweetened with stevia in a BPA-free reusable water bottle.

A nice hearty lunch. The night before sautee up some fresh veggies-zuks,onion,shrooms,green & red peppers, with sprinkle of ground ginger, little salt for flavor, cracked black pepper, fresh lemon juice, with sauteed chicken strips. Thicken it up with arrowroot mixed with a little milk. Place all this on top of some couscous. Somtimes we might put curry in it with some coconut milk.

A thermos full of cold organic cottage cheese with fresh pineapple cut up on top. A large tortilla with organic low fat cream cheese, baby spinach, roasted chicken lunchmeat, and a small drizzle of red french dressing rolled up and cut into pinwheels. Sweet potato chips on the side with vitamin water to drink. It covers all the food groups and flavors!

My all-time favorite take-along lunch is a sandwich on organic, sprouted bread. I load it up with arugula and tomatoes from my garden, organic sliced turkey, smooshed avocado (instead of mayo) red onion, and homemade mustard that is a combo of honey mustard and brown mustard.

I would pack a sprouted wheat tortilla wrap filled with a white fish (tilapia or sea bass) and topped with a mango type salsa that includes chopped mango, white onion, black beans, cilantro, corn and sliced cherry tomatoes all of which have been marinated in light salt and pepper, white vinegar and a hint of lime juice. Add some light spinach in the wrap underneath the fish with the salsa mixture on top. A small cucumber, tomato, kalamata olive and feta cheese salad on the side (seasoned with salt and pepper, and a tad bit of balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil). To satisfy that sweet tooth; a sliced strawberry, blackberry and blueberry salad topped with a bit of light agave nectar. Down it all with some fresh squeezed carrot juice or just water and a lemon wedge. For vegetarians: substitute the fish with a meatless microprotein naked chicken cutlet (did not mention the brand since I'm not sure if that violates the posting guidelines). For vegans: eliminate the fish altogether and add extra black beans if you wish. You may also add walnuts to the cucumber salad. For gluten intolerant folks: substitute the wheat tortilla for sprouted corn tortilla. Bon appetit!

I bring a packed lunch to work everyday to save money and to ensure I'm getting essential nutrients! My favorite meal to bring on the go is a whole wheat pita stuffed with hummus, cucumbers, sprouts, tomatoes, olives, pepperoncinis and roasted red peppers. I also pack a banana paired with two tablespoons of natural chunky peanut butter and greek yogurt with fresh mixed berries. YUM. I usually pack this all the night before and have it ready to go. If I'm planning on working out or going for a run I'll also drink a protein shake a few hours after lunch! Bon APPETIT!

I am a high school student that packs my lunch everyday due to the less-than-satisfactory choices at my school's cafeteria. One of the quickest and tastiest options to make is oven-roasted turkey on a whole wheat sandwich roll with lettuce, tomato, and whole-grain mustard. I add carrot sticks with hummus dip and an unsweetened applesauce, with a bottle of iced tea.

My son loves Bento style lunches. Whenever I make sushi for dinner, I make enough to send leftovers with him for lunch (usually California rolls). On the side, I send baby carrots and dip, grapes, and a handful of cashews. Reuseable water bottle. Lunch from the cafeteria will never be eaten by my kids.
