Brown paper bag: week 2

by Khushboo on August 25, 2011

Another week gone by, another Thursday is upon us which means YOU get a look into MY lunchbox….or as we established last week,  my ‘reused plastic bag’ :lol:.  I’d like to think of this lunch as a perfect example of making the most of leftovers:

Enough small chat, here are the goods:

  • A rainbow Mixed Salad

topped with…

  • Mexican Bean Dip
Pinto chili by night, bean dip by day.  Rather than heat up leftovers from the night before, I mixed it with Greek yogurt and BAM- a whole new meal. I swear it tasted WAY better than it looks….and made for an excellent salad topper:
  • Melba toast for a crunch

  • A Mini Toblerone to round things off

Gotta love multipacks of chocolate sold in Duty Free 😉

**For those who missed my tips for packing lunches, you can take a look at them here**

What was the best thing you ate for lunch this week?

Hello from just across the water in Saudi! I love your meals, they all look incredible. But that bean dip, seriously, I need some in my life.

I had a delicious brisket salad with peppers, corn salsa and a delicious vinagerette at Lucille’s BBQ on Tuesday and it was amazing!

Oh yay I’m getting lots of good lunchbox ideas for when I go back to teaching in uni! Love your outlook – healthy living rocks! Best lunch – grilled egg,apple and strawberry jam wrap I think!

Thanks so much, and welcome! I love the sound of wrap but it’s begging for a lil cheese action ;)!
