Back to School: Healthy Lunch Ideas (That are easy to pack!)

Today I have two healthy lunch options. Both are much tastier than a sandwich and better for you than fast food and both are easy to pack and take to school.



The first option is soup in a thermos. This is really nice when it starts getting cold outside and you just want to eat cozy food by a crackling fire (or is that just me?). It is a great way to use up leftovers or you can just make a pot of soup and eat it throughout the week. When I don’t have much time to cook I really like Bear Creek soups they have a lot of really delicious soup options that take harldy any time to make.


The second idea is salad in a jar. Put some greens (I really like spinach) in a mason jar, add all your favorite toppings in pretty layers and then add your dressing. You can put the dressing straight into the jar but I don’t like when my salad gets slimy so I like to put it in a smaller jar.



What is your favorite lunch to eat at school?

I won’t accept sponsorships from companies whose products I don’t use all the time and think are really great. However, links marked with an * are affiliate links. Should you click on the links and make a purchase, at no extra cost to you, I’ll go add to my growing stash of tea, or pay the fines on that library book that I couldn’t put down for a month.
