Healthy School Lunches for Teachers

Anybody else get stuck in a rut of making the same school lunches over and over? Well here are a few ideas to help you to add more variety to your day! For some of these, you might need to go easy on the dressings to make them healthier!

Snacks:

Fruit
Raw veg
Yogurt
Cereal bars
Rice cakes with peanut butter
Rye bread with hummus
Rye bread with guacamole
Oven-roasted chickpeas
Trail mix

Salads:
Feta, olives, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, rocket
Caprese salad with grilled peppers
Gorgonzola, pear, walnuts, cucumber, rocket (don't knock it til you've tried it!)
Beetroot, chickpea, spinach
Sweet potato, lentil and feta
Three bean salad
Roasted broccoli, chickpea and rocket
Cucumber, quinoa salad
Mandarin orange spinach salad with chicken and lemon honey ginger dressing
Blueberry, feta, spinach salad
Lebanese lenil salad

Avocado, mango, tomato
Mediterranean lentil salad
Sticky lime chicken salad (marinate the chicken overnight in the juice of 2 limes, a tablespoon of honey, a tablespoon of olive oil and two teaspoons of thyme . then bake in a preheated oven for 30 mins) You can use the chicken for dinner and then chop some up to make a salad. For the salad I normally add iceberg lettuce, sweetcorn and cherry tomatoes.

Dinner (eat the night before and bring a portion to school the next day):
Slimming World's bacon and brocolli pasta salad
Thai peanut wraps
The Happy Pear 5 Min dahl (with pittas or naan bread) 
The Happy Pear veggie paella
Tex Mex pasta salad
Avocado pasta salad
Caprese pesto pasta salad
Brown rice salad
Curried rice with raisins, cilantro and chickpeas
Peanut, lime and riced cauliflower salad
Roasted squash with spiced lentils, feta and pine nuts
