    School lunch help!

    Advertisements
    Help me think of lunch items to take to school with me! I would usually buy something, but I can't really anymore because of my new found allergies.

    Basically nothing with bread or crackers or rice or oats, anything of that nature.
    For tomorrow I made: Tuna salad, potato chips, two puddings, yogurt, and a vitamin water.

    TIA!

    Just some thoughts dried fruits apricots, cranberries, cherries, banana chips and so on. Sting cheese or cheese piece with gluten free crackers maybe?
    Fresh Fruit Salads, green salads. Egg salad, chicken salads.
    Cottage cheese? Applesauce, fresh cut up veggies with a dip.
    You could use eggplant slices as bread for sandwiches instead maybe.
    Quinoa dishes that you could make the night before and reheat.

    Ok thats all I can think of at the moment.

    Its about 110-115 degrees out right now. But soup will be good for when it starts to cool down!

    I guess I could try some fruit. I really need to broaden my food choices Because everything you listed I never eat. I was thinking about maybe some salad, which I could also buy if I don't have time to pack. I should get some veggies and dip too! Thanks for the ideas!

    It sucks because I already ate everything I brought, and I'm still starving, and there are still 4 more hours of school left!

    Yea it sounds like you might have to start branching out with your diet with needing to stay away from gluten products.

    Just a few more ideas.

    Hard Boiled eggs, jello, Pudding, Baked Potatoes or Baked sweet potatoes. Could you make your own trail mix to take with you? Could you do Corn tortillas? If you can then you could make wraps, or enchiladas to re heat. Snack bag of popcorn? Lettuce wrapped sandwiches perhaps.

    I'm allergic to corn too!

    I want to make my own trail mix, I just have to think of me-friendly things first. I was thinking sunflower seeds, chocolate chips, peanuts, ummm ummm... I can't think of any more fillers.

    I'm a big fruits girl. I'd say grapefruit to help curve your appetite 30 minutes before lunch. And as cliched and boring as it sounds, you can experiment with salads by adding different kinds of protein/cheeses and even the kind of leafy greens you use...

    well you could add dried fruit into it like raisins, yogurt covered raisins. Mabe chocolate covered coffee beans. toss in a bunch of different nuts. You could also do pumpkin seeds. Add do mini marshmallows maybe. Or peanut butter chips. You could put in shredded coconut.

    just some more ideas to add to the mix. Hope some of this is helpful.
