School lunch doesn't have to be the most boring meal of the day. Light up your lunchtime by trying these five fresh, crunchy, creamy, yummy lunches. You'll need some help from an adult with the cutting, heating, and use of a food processor. But you can do many of the steps, so get cooking!
Got leftover chicken or turkey? This Garden Chicken Wrap is perfect for you. Add the meat to your favorite greens and veggies. Then top with a little dressing for extra yum.
What's quinoa? Quinoa (say: keen-wah) is an alternative to pasta and rice. It has a lot of protein, a hearty texture, and a nutty flavor. It can be eaten hot or cold, as in this quick dish, Confetti Quinoa. This recipe calls for frozen veggies, but feel free to use fresh if you prefer. Just saute them until tender crisp and add to cooked quinoa.
