How to Fill that Vegan Lunch Box

Make Great Vegan Lunches for Every Member of the Family!
So it's that time of year when a young person's fancy turns to - well - how to fill that lunch box!


Whether your kids go to "far away school" (as we call it here),  or your homeschool co-op is starting up again, or if the grown-ups in the family have resolved once again to live more frugal & healthy lives - that lunch box needs filling!


Here are a bunch of great ideas. Many of them can be stored in the freezer for quick access. Others are Quick and Easy - they can be started with frozen ingredients such as cooked beans or grains. So, most of them can be pretty convenient. Because packing a lunch just isn't going to happen for most families if it turns out to be a two hour ordeal every day!


So, without further ado:


Freezer-Friendly Lunchbox Fillers




Dips with Veggies, Breads, or Chips for Dipping - or as part of a Sandwich:

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
