Here are my top four favourite lunches to pack Abi because they're easy to make and... delicious! Just add some colourful sides to each and Voila! Lunch is served :)
Check out my time-saving prep tips for each lunch below:
🍝🥗 Pasta Salad
I always have cooked pasta noodles in my fridge. When I want to send them to school for lunch, I add my kids favourite veggies and toss in olive oil, grated parmesan, salt & pepper.
🍲💪 Lentil Soup
This is a lunchtime favourite especially during the cooler months. It's also the one meal I can make for dinner AND serve as leftovers for lunch the next day.
Because the lentils will continue to absorb the liquids overnight, I suggest separating them from the broth before storing. Simply combine them back together the next day, reheat and pack in a thermos for lunch!
🥐🍳 Fried Egg Croissant
I store croissants in the freezer to keep them fresh. When I’m ready to use one I remove it from the freezer and make the sandwich on the frozen croissant. It will defrost by lunch AND keep lunch cool throughout the day.
🍞🍯 French Toast
I love packing French toast for lunch because I can make it the night before and send it to school cold the next day. I cut the toast into sticks so the kids can eat with their hands and easily dip the toast into their honey or maple syrup (a must).
