How often do you look forward to eating what is in your lunch box?

If you are bored with your lunch box choices and are looking for some ideas that are tasty and nutritious, then we have some great lunch box ideas for you.

Perhaps you are not making your lunch at the moment and feel you are spending too much money each and every day on lunch. Lunch that may not be highly nutritious or fresh. It is also difficult to know what exact ingredients are in a bought lunch. So if you are after some great lunch box ideas we have five great for you  in this video.

When you make your own lunch, you know exactly what ingredients going into it. You have the choice of adding the best ingredients, that are locally and ethically sourced. Saving food miles and reducing the amount of plastic waste that might otherwise go into circulation is a great benefit too.

These lunch box ideas that we share with you are quick and easy. Plan ahead at the beginning of the week and do a shop that with your menu in mind. This way you are reducing the number of trips to the shops, time that you can use to prepare lunches. In the video Dr. Lisa suggests to make lunch for the following day as you are preparing dinner. If your children are old enough, then they can help with the preparation. This is a wonderful opportunity to get them off devices and chat about what has been going on in their day.

The ingredients in these dishes are organic which helps to  limit the amount of chemicals in the food. Reducing the toxic load in foods helps us to make better quality cells and tissues from that food. Our food makes our cells and tissues, so the better the quality of what we put into our bodies, the better our health will be.

We go through some suggestions for salt and oil brands. Using spices and herbs in our lunch box ideas are a great way to make veggies or meat more interesting.
