Tuesdays Tip: What's for Lunch?

Art teacher's have enough stuff to prep and a healthy lunch doesn't have to be one of them.

My favorite easy healthy lunch this week was Trader Joe's Soup (from the box not the can, I worry about BPB's) and whole grain bread that I toasted in the Teacher's Room.

I also like that I can put the rest in the teacher's fridge and heat it up the next day. Do you have ideas for a healthy hassle free lunch?

We don't have Trader Joe's around here :-(

Lunch is a struggle. Last night's bean and veggie soup gets boring after a couple of repeats (though it was good when I made it).

Our new cafeteria manager, who started last spring, has been making a good effort. Whole wheat pasta, fresh veggies, healthy muffins, whole wheat crust pizza. And yummy shepherd's pie. But there's too much fat for me, so I'm hoping someone will come up with some good alternatives. I like to cook but hate assembling lunch when I'm in a hurry in the morning.

I did a lot of Healthy Choice meals for a while but I think it might have too much sodium for me. Recently, I have started bringing in lunch meat, a little container of mayo, and Nature's Own Sandwich rounds (these are so yummy) and leaving them in the fridge. By leaving it all at school I don't have to worry about putting together something at home. It might get a little boring but I feel like I am controlling what I eat a little better. I did the soup thing for a little bit but in Florida it is just too hot.

I like greek yogurt, a good nice piece of fresh fruit, sometimes low-fat string cheese, and yogurt covered raisins or a handful of almonds. So good, and quick to eat and prep.

Mmmmm that's an awesome lunch! I am going grocery shopping now and I have some new things to put on my list! I was eating a lot of Healthy Choice last year, trying to upgrade from the sodium too!

You're lucky that your school is making efforts to make a lunch with real food! Real vegetables, whole grains sounds like your state is way ahead of us in so many ways. Somehow we pay crazy high taxes though. . . where's the suitcase?
