Inspiration for your lunchbox

Pin It Now!
I have been stuck in a rut lately, packing the same turkey sandwich all week. I did manage to drag out the cutters and make dinosaur-shaped turkey sandwiches one day. My son got giggly when I asked him if he noticed. Nice! At least most of the sandwiches have been eaten, so I will have to give myself a break. I continue to be amazed by what other people are managing, and have found some great photo galleries and images that I thought I would share. My goal will be to try to make a healthy version of those ham and cheese pockets from Pretty Providence and see how they freeze and re-heat. I will keep you posted!

Now for a dose of inspiration:

I have several of the easylunchboxes and they are great. They are very sturdy with one large, one medium and one small compartment for dividing foods.

Personal blogs

I never thought about it, but my kids would love jerky as a snack!

This collection of sandwich-less lunch ideas is filled with ideas that you can make in advance.

Some of the ideas could use some healthy makeovers, so I would recommend using whole wheat dough and nitrate-free meat products.
