Healthy Lunches Your Family Will Enjoy

Eating a healthy lunch in the middle of the day is an important way to avoid the temptation presented by the unhealthy snacks found in school and office vending machines. And yet, it can be a challenge since lunches must travel with family members to wherever their day takes them.

Here are a few general suggestions for lunch menus:
  • Raw vegetables of choice
  • Salads
  • Vegetable pita pockets, collard wraps, or organic low-sodium vegetable or wheat wraps filled with a variety of vegetables, hummus, and greens
  • Hummus with vegetables, such as broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, celery, and cauliflower
  • Nut butters
  • A cooked dish, such as a vegetable soup, lentils/beans, or leftovers from a previous dinner

A tasty salad dressing is a great way to enhance the flavor of many of these choices. Get the recipe for Kristen Stoll’s favorite healthy salad dressing/dip here. Or try the Quinoa and Avocado Salad here.
