It’s an important one, because eating out multiple times a week isn’t good for anyone. It’s not good for your body (Hiya Sodium…) and it’s not good for you when your wife is adding up the lunch receipts.
I swear I’m not a nag. Just a bit of a nanny-goat at times.
When I got the chance to showcase some great on-the-go meals in a #CollectiveBias post- meals that Mr. Suburble would be happy to eat – I immediately thought about variety.
Mr. Suburble is not the type of guy who could eat a ham and cheese sandwich every day and still feel excited about his lunch. Let’s face it – not many of us could.
I went through this phase where I packed him cold cuts and crackers nearly every day. I thought I was in the running for an Awesomest Wife award. Look at how I’m cutting up these little sausage-thingies. And little slices of cheese! Isn’t this so cute? He must love these!
Nope. Even sausage-thingies get old. Especially after a week of non-stop garlic sausage and Ritz crackers.
What was I thinking?
I’ve learned that a bit of variety goes a long way in making a brown-bagged lunch more appealing than the take out.
The girls and I headed to Superstore to pick up some Blue Menu products; we got straight to work, whipping up some lunchy-loveliness.
First up: the Turkey Cranberry Roll-up.
- 1 pkg Blue Menu sliced turkey breast
- 1 pkg Blue Menu Whole Grain Tortillas
- Blue Menu Plain Cream Cheese
- Dried Sweetened Cranberries
- Spread cream cheese over a tortilla
- Cover tortilla with turkey slices
- Sprinkle cranberries over turkey
- Starting at one side, roll up tortilla very tightly until it is a cylinder
- Cut the roll into four or five pieces
- Put into lunch container and send off with love!
Mr. Suburble and I are both huge tzatziki fans. Tzatziki is probably my favourite dip because it’s low-calorie (less than hummus… which was my go-to for a long time), and you can dip so many things in it!
And sometimes, I like to take some time when preparing our on-the-go snacks.
Especially when I’m packing them for the kids.
And are my kids picky when it comes to food?
I know. I had to spell SOMETHING! The nerd in me needed to make pretzel-art.
You can find these bad boys in the chips and pretzel aisle of Superstore. Just look for the Blue Menu label.
And so does Mr. Suburble. This is actually HIS snack; it’s not for the kids.
I’m doing my best to keep things happenin’ in the lunch kit.
How do you jazz up your bagged lunch? I’d love to hear your ideas!
