Non-Sandwich Lunch Ideas

Lunchbox food is important.  Whether it is for a little person at school or someone bigger at work, it helps with the ability to concentrate.  It should be packed with the good stuff that fuels up the brain for the afternoon, sadly most processed packaged foods just don’t hit that goal.

I am a big fan of prep for the week ahead, maybe bake a few extras for lunches?

Why not sandwiches?  Honestly there are some great sandwiches, but they are not all created equal. A vegemite on wonder white combo does not really cut it against chicken & salad on grainy bread combo.  I’m totally down for routine, but the same lunch everyday gets pretty dud, pretty quick.  Spice up the variety – you may see less coming home (or binned).

Some options I love:

💡 LOs (leftovers) from last night’s dinner = todays lunch

💡 Mini quiches

💡 Mini meatballs

💡 Homemade baked beans

💡 Good quality sausages or chicken drumsticks

💡 Homemade pizza

💡 Savoury muffins

💡 Sushi or rice paper rolls

Lunches here tend to be a mix of prepared on the weekend (& frozen) & LOs.  Sometimes its room temp, sometimes it is in a thermos (hot/cold).

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.
