Nothing against sandwiches per se, but if you pack one for lunch week in and out, palate fatigue can set in. The next time you're looking to mix things up, try one of these alternative brown-bag lunches — we've included recipes for everything from hearty salads to chili to Summer rolls.
Low-Fat Chicken Salad Buy a prepared chicken breast at your local grocery, or cook your own the night before. Shred or cube the chicken and add up to 2 tablespoons of light mayonnaise, some chopped celery, and salt and pepper to taste. Pair with two FiberRich Plus crackers, and you’ll have a healthy take on a simple lunch.
Don’t fall into a school lunch rut! Try new sandwich combos like ham and pineapple, chocolate hazelnut spread and raspberries, cucumbers and cream cheese, avocado and mozzarella, or hummus and chopped peppers. Great sandwich inspiration from Ziploc®. And not just for the kids. They make great brown bag lunches for work, too.
