Remember when lunch used to be a peanut butter sandwich practically every day? T’was a simpler time, wasn’t it? These days I’m looking for something a liiiiiiitle more sophisticated in the sandwich department, and it occurred to me that maybe you are as well.
I’m a firm believer that breakfast isn’t the most important meal of the day, lunch is! Lunch keeps you fuelled at a time of day when you need energy to keep you going. And if you’re going to be packing your lunches instead of spending money on lunch out each day, your lunch had better be tasty!
Last week we went over my top 10 Lunch Packing Tips for tasty, healthy, and budget friendly lunches. And we’ve got 20 Vegetarian Lunch Ideas in the form of meal bowls, so today we’re rounding out the lunch packing series with 22 Vegetarian Sandwich Ideas.
