Grown-Up Lunches!

A lot of times we tend to only focus on what the kids are having for lunch. Why? Because that's what parents do. They pack the kids a super cute, super healthy lunch and forget about themselves. We end up having a candy bar and soft drink for lunch. Now I don't know about you, but this is totally me. So today I am sharing a few lunches that the adults in my house had last week. These lunches are sure to help us stay on track. All are packed in EasyLunchboxes.

This is a take on the restaurant style bistro box. This is lunch for my mom. She has summer sausage, fresh peppered mozzarella, a boiled egg, grapes, carrots, a cheddar cheese stick, and bagel chips.

This is a lunch I made for myself. I have ribbon noodles with a simple garlic butter sauce I made myself, parmesan cheese, sugar snap peas, peppers, cucumbers, and carrots.

This one was my favorite and the easiest lunches to pull together. The night before I had made crockpot chicken fajitas. They were so tasty and we had quite a bit of leftovers. I have chicken, sautéed peppers and onions, cheddar cheese, and a clementine. This lunch is perfect for the office. To heat just remove the orange and cheese cup, pop in the microwave for about a minute, then put your fajitas together and enjoy!

Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

2-3 lbs. of boneless chicken breast
1 1/2-2 packs of McCormick fajita seasoning  (depending on your taste)
1 cup of water

Put everything in the crock pot and cook on low 6-8 hrs. When fully cooked shred chicken and serve on flour tortillas. I also use this chicken to make chicken nachos. We also stir fry onions and peppers for our fajitas.

All of todays grown up lunches were super easy to make and have a nice variety. Much better than that soft drink and candy bar! Remember that YOU deserve a good healthy lunch also.
