Lunch Ideas

container pictured here is by Ziploc

Here's a little visual-guide for helping you create a balanced lunch-to-go!  Get creative using leftovers from dinner (super-simple with you pack lunch during dinner clean-up!).  Got finicky eaters?  Let the kids pack their own lunch (or portions of it) by following the criteria you set using a simple visual aid like the one pictured here.  When you consider that the average American household throws away approximately 25% of all food purchased, it makes sense that you could save money (AND get healthier) by recycling those leftovers and cast-off foods into simple lunches (almost like getting lunch for FREE!).

  1. I love this! I have these containers. I run endless errands. What an easy way to know what to pack to have with me. Thanks!
