Hummus + Veggies

Slice up your favorite vegetables like cucumber, celery, carrots and bell peppers. Then pair with a homemade hummus dip for a nutrition-packed meal. 

Hard-boiled Egg + Fruit

A hard-boiled egg is a great protein source, and the fruit makes a nice pairing. Apple slices, grapes, and berries are all great choices. 


Chopped Chicken Salad

Greens, chopped chicken, and veggies make this salad easy! You can throw in any veggies you find in your refrigerator. Top with seeds or your favorite spices and olive oil. 


Cottage Cheese + Fruit

This dish is a little sweet and a little savory. Put some cottage cheese in a container and top with fresh blueberries and strawberries. 


Yogurt + Granola

Greek yogurt is healthy and packs some protein. Add some granola and fresh berries. Pack some veggies on the side. 


Turkey + Cream Cheese Tortilla Pinwheels

Spread cream cheese on a tortilla and layer turkey on top. Then roll up the tortilla and slice into small bite-sized sections. Pair with some cherry tomatoes. 


Tuna Fish + Crackers + Cheese Cubes

Prepare tuna fish the way you enjoy it, and pair with crackers and cubes of cheese.
