Savor The Flavor Tip # 12 - Banish Brown Bag Boredom

Whether it’s a lunch for work or school, prevent brown bag boredom with easy-to-fix, healthy lunch ideas. Try a whole-wheat pita pocket with veggies and hummus or a low sodium vegetable soup with whole grain crackers or a salad of mixed greens with low-fat dressing and a hard boiled egg.

There are many great new containers available to help you maintain the quality of your packed lunch.  Consider investing in a insulated bag if you do not have access to a refrigerator to keep your food safe.

If you like salad, layer one in a mason jar and then when ready to eat, add some dressing and shake to coat.

Plan for using leftovers in your lunch by preparing larger recipes and portioning into microwave safe lunch containers.

For kids look at option for dips and vegetables and sandwiches, or even a package of nuts for crunch, protein, and nutrition.

There are lots of great ideas on Pinterest.  Use MyPlate as a guide making sure that half of your lunch is fruit and vegetables.
