Quick and Easy…

Well, as you can probably tell from the lack of blog entries in the past few days things have been pretty chaotic around here.  This is easily the busiest time of year for me with my job so finding a quiet time to blog here on This Lunch Rox gets a little challenging.  I know a lot of you can relate  so I’ve made an effort to photograph the lunches I’ve thrown together over the past few days for anyone who needs some quick and easy ideas for those busy mornings.  Before we get to the lunches, I thought I’d share a few helpful hints for pulling together lunches in a pinch:

  • Rinse & pre-cut fruits and veggies when you bring them home from the farmer’s market or grocery store
  • Keep a variety of sandwich staples on hand (pita pockets, lavash roll-ups, bread, etc…)
  • Put leftovers in a thermos for lunch
  • Make ahead deserts or treats, store them in the freezer and pull them out as needed
The lunch below includes:  peanut butter roll-up on lavash bread (you might consider Sunbutter if peanut allergies are a concern), string cheese, carrots, grapes, almonds, watermelon, chocolate chip cookie
This lunch includes: nitrite-free turkey sandwich, pineapple, cheese, carrots, homemade fruit roll up
This lunch includes:  peanut butter roll-up, cucumbers, almonds, strawberries and blueberries, chewy chocolate granola bar
Stay tuned…I have some fun themed lunches coming soon!

  1. Love the sandwich roll-ups on lavash bread….wonder if my daughter would go for that?

    Have you ever found gluten-free lavash bread? I can’t find gluten free tortillas that are soft enough to roll (without heating) and that will taste good. Would love some tips for brands if you have any. Thanks!

  3. Where are you getting your Ghirardelli unsweetened chocolate chips these days? I can’t find them on amazon any more.

  4. Christine says:

    What kinds of almonds do you get? I have seen these and the chocolate ones in your lunches and would love to know what kind.
    Thanks for all your great ideas!!!

    Can you tell me about the last lunch box – the metal one? I didn’t see it in your store. Do you know the name and where to get it?

    • Lana says:

      I don’t recall the name of the lunch box, but I recall reading from another of her posts that she got the metal lunch box from Pottery Barn Kids.
