easy lunch ideas: volume II

Easy Lunch Ideas Vol. II | The Pomegranate Bandit

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!
