If your home is anything like ours, it’s really busy and chaotic on school and work mornings. One of the biggest stressors used to be… what’s for lunch or what can I have for lunch or I don’t have any money in my lunch account.
Remove that stress from your mornings by making plant-based lunch boxes for everyone ahead of time!
So if you’ve got chaotic mornings or a field trip or a road trip, save yourself some stress, opt for plant-based lunch on the go. Pack one of these lunch boxes or even better create one of your own. Check out my Lunch Box Guide Here.
Obviously you’re going to want to stay away from processed foods and meat or dairy but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a little fun with it. Like a fiesta lunch with build your own bean burrito and salsa.
You can also make the burrito ahead of time if making it would be too troublesome, or use chips instead. My kids love eating beans and chips! We use this oil-free refried bean recipe in the Instant Pot! Here is the regular version.
This plant-based lunch box is perfect for a day trip lunch! Carrot and cucumber sticks, cut long for easy dipping, are perfect for packing. This lunch has a Mediterranean flare, including veggie wraps with oil-free hummus. You could use your favorite fresh veggies and add olives on the side. We opt for popcorn since our whole family loves it.
You could also try a good old fashioned peanut butter and banana sandwich with mixed veggies and mixed fruit with pretzels. This one may be my favorite. I’ve been on a peanut butter kick!
Use your favorite bread or even a tortilla to mix it up a bit. We use whichever fruit and veggies we have and everyone can pick their own.
Having fresh fruit as an accompaniment is always a winning choice! We all love apples dipped in peanut butter. We’ll often grab a granola bar or baked oatmeal to add to this.
When you’re all done designing and building your vegan lunch box, then they’ll stack wonderfully in the fridge as well. We love Easy Lunch Boxes and have used them for 6 years. They are easy to open, durable, and inexpensive. If you like stress free, you’ll love these!
