Healthy Packed Lunch Ideas



I don't know about you, but at my school there is a huge range of options for lunch. You can have grease on its own, greasy cardboard, greasy rubber and occasionally a few limp peas just for the health. However, sometimes you have to have something different. Here some options, if that's what you feel like. I'm going to post when I've done these, and show the results.

I really want to try these, although I don't think I said - my parents have kind of banned me from internet recipes. No idea why - there have been successes in the past. Well, a success. Probably.

And bam, you join in the casual boasting on how healthy your lunch is, except instead of giving pointed stares at your half carrot sick feast, you can smugly tuck in to a tasty meal, and mention in passing how it has under 200 calories. Oh yes.
