Stuck for Lunchbox Ideas?

Usually I try for a recipe in the first post of the month, however school is back in for 2020 & you may be looking for some lunchbox inspo.  Remember, these are also ideal for big people lunchboxes too!

✏️ Leftover meatballs, boiled eggs, chicken drumsticks.  Any of these proteins with some salad.

📚 Pasta salad – easy peasey.  Wholemeal pasta, feta, olives, halved cherry tomatoes & tuna.

✂️ Vegie quiches.  Make a scrambled egg mix add some grated zucchini, spring onion, carrot.  Grease a muffin tins – pour in the mix & top with some grated cheese.  Alternatively make same type of mix into fritters.  Both of these can be made in batches & stashed in the freezer, so great to prep in advance.

📋 Pumpkin seeds roasted in tamari (similar to soy sauce, available at Coles/Woolies) or whatever spices are a good choices for your house.  THINK rosemary & parmesan cheese, taco spices, chai spices, or garlic & parmesan cheese.

✏️ Try for a wholemeal or seeded bread as this has more fibre than white, which makes it more filling.  As well beneficial for digestive health.

✂️ Trail mix.  Craisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, choc drops, dried blueberries, coconut flakes & nuts (if they are OK at your school).  Whatever combo works for you & yours.

📚 Vegie dippers.  Carrot sticks, mini cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, & snow peas with some hummus to dip them in.

📋 Fruit (1-2 pieces).  Bananas are great (& have their own packaging – win), grapes are easy even try freezing them if the weather is hot, or of course apples.

Lot of colour, sign me up!

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
