5 Days of Brown Bag Lunches

#1 Hummus on a whole grain pita with shredded carrots; Trail mix of popcorn, dried cranberries and almonds

#2 Turkey and Provolone cheese on whole grain bread lightly spread with pesto; pretzels and orange slices

#3 Refried beans (fat-free) & shredded Colby Jack cheese on whole wheat tortilla with side of salsa, baked chips, apple

#4 Honey whole wheat bagel with nut butter (almond, peanut, soy) & honey, grapes, 4oz yogurt cup

#5 Hardboiled egg with whole grain crackers (Triscuits, Wheat Thins), sugar snap peas with light ranch dressing, low fat mozzarella cheese stick

Let’s approach our brown bag eating with the wisdom of Amos Bronson Alcott, (1799-1888)-American teacher, philosopher, writer, reformer- “The less routine, the more life”.  This rings true for eating because a greater variety in our diet affords us the opportunity to glean nutritional benefits from more foods.  Thanks, Amos!
