The 5 Minute Lunch Box

The 5 Minute Lunch Box

Life is busy {cray cray busy} and while I TRY to make the kids lunches the night before, I usually end up making them in the morning in-between breakfast and “get your shoes on, we’re going to be late!” To survive the morning I've learned to make a lunch or two pretty fast.

Here are 5 fast tips on how to speed up the lunch making process:

1. Store a variety of bread in the freezer {ie. english muffin, croissant} to keep fresh & assemble your sandwich while the bread is still frozen. It will defrost during the day and help keep the rest of the lunchbox cool.

2. Fry 1/2 dozen eggs individually ahead of time and store in the fridge for 2-3 days for fast sandwiches or even breakfast! I like to use a small frying pan or an egg cup will work in any size pan.

3. Pre-wash & pre-cut fruits and veggies * This simple step will help you save time with every meal and snack you make

4. Keep an assortment of healthy snacks on-hand ie. raisins, pretzels, cereals, crackers and combine together to create your own snack-mix

5. Leftovers count as lunch! Simply re-heat and serve in a thermos along with some fresh fruit and/or veggies and a snack.
