Packable Lunch Ideas

This past weekend was a busy one. On Saturday, I dropped off gluten-free cookies and brownies for the Bakesale for Japan at Akasha in Culver City. There were amazing baked goods there and I was told they raised $2,500.

On Sunday I helped out my MomsLA colleague Sarah Auerswald at the Green Booth at Mar Vista Farmers’ Market. We were talking about No-Waste Lunches and giving away lunch bags from Whole Foods. I wrote up a list of ideas for packable lunches. Here they are –

Monday farmers market
Almond butter and honey sandwich cut into fourths
Strawberries, fresh or frozen
Edamame, fresh or frozen

Cheese and whole grain crackers
2 peeled clementines
Frozen or freeze dried peas

Nitrate-free turkey on whole grain bread with honey mustard
Snap pea crisps
Mango slices

Cut up apples with peanut butter or other nut butter
Whole grain crackers
Yogurt smoothie

Plain yogurt mixed with 100 percent fruit spread
Blueberries or seasonal fruit cut up
Whole grain and low sugar fruit bar (Kashi has one, gluten-free try Glutino)
