Super Quick Vegetarian Lunches

Easy and quick on-the-go lunches.

Tired of trying to find something yummy and delicious for lunch? Need to pack for your kids and they don’t want to see another pb and j sandwich? Well, stick that 10 bucks back in your wallet ( lunch prices are crazy aren’t’ they?), and get busy pulling these SUPER EASY lunches together ( I did say they were quick and easy…they are!).

Here’s the list of ingredients you need for each of these. Mix and match what you want.

Mason Jar Salad:
2 tbs of your favorite salad dressing (I used Balsamic Vinegar)
1/4 of a chopped cucumber
1 handful of shaved carrots
2 chopped beets
1/4 cup chopped crimini mushrooms
A few slivers of a red onion
1/2 cup halved cherry tomatos
1/2 cup cooked red quinoa (Feel free to sub for whatever protein)
Fill the rest with your favorite greens! (I used kale, chard & spinach)

Corn & Bean Salad
1/2 cup rinsed and drained black beans
1/2 cup rinsed and drained garbanzo beans
1 cup of cooked organic corn (look for GMO free!)
1 hand-full of diced red pepper
1 hand-full of diced red onion
1 hand-full of halved cherry tomatoes
Cilantro to taste (I obviously like a lot haha)
Juice of 1/2 of a lime
& a drizzle of balsamic vinegar!

Greek Hummus Wrap
1 Wrap of your choice (tortilla, pita, whole wheat, rice, coconut, etc.)
2 tbs of Hummus (I like Trader Joe’s organic original)
1 hand-full of chopped romaine lettuce
1 hand-full of halved cherry tomatoes
Some thinly sliced red onion
& a few halved kalamata olives!

It’s all about putting in what you like and what your kids like, not what I might like or anyone else.

Get creative with these and have fun.

Happy Lunching!

P.S. In the comments under the video, it was recommended that you dump out the mason jar salad onto a plate. That way the dressing coats your salad and you can start munching.
