In my ever-lasting quest for lunches that are: easy, tasty, satisfying and totally healthy last week I decided on a Roasted Vegetable Salad with hummus. I just feel like I haven’t gotten the “packing lunch” thing down. I always spend way too much time and effort and then if something is just so-so I’m dissapointed in the whole thing. I can’t bring myself to make a sandwich…although I might try next week. Oh and someone ;) always eats the leftovers so we rarely have those.  Having access to only a microwave doesn’t make it any easier either. So help. Please :)  Do you pack your lunch? What do you pack?

This lunch was actually very good, it might even qualify to repeat (despite the fact that the veggies were WAY over done and close to mush-status). It included Herb Salad mix, cucumber, peppers, hummus and the roasted veggies: brussels, asparagus, squash, red onion and zucchini.

    i LOVE the idea of a roasted veggie salad! i’ve had the same issue with brussel sprouts…they turn kinda mushy if you don’t eat them right away. i am all about leftovers for lunch, canned amy’s soup, yog messes and small meals (aka periodic snacks throughout the day).

    hope you are well girl! love to you :)

    I love the blend of veggies in that salad. All of my favorites sharing the same plate. As for good “at work” lunches, I do have to say that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are tops for convenience and simple tastiness. If sandwiches aren’t your fancy, then I agree with Holly: yogurt messes, soups, grazing. Good luck on finding a lunch that suits your fancy! :)
