Back again with more lunch ideas! Here is volume 1, in case you missed it. Since then I’ve been photographing my lunches and built up enough for another post, and I figured What I Ate Wednesday would be a perfect day for it! I’m also linking up with Elle over at Nutritionella for today’s Elf for Health challenge which is to share my expertise-my expertise is homemade lunches!

A true emergency lunch: Starkist Tuna Creations (buy the ready to eat kind, not this one! It needed mayo), a bun, and an apple.

NOTE: Some of these lunches are only showing what I ate for lunch, and not what I ate the rest of the day. I always bring greek yogurt with fruit for my morning snack, and I always have an apple or other healthy snack around 3pm. The trick is to bring enough healthy food so you don’t end up venturing to the vending machine!
