I’m not the most creative when it comes to making lunches for the kids (and for me!). But I do get bored making and eating the same old lunches over and over again.

So, I’m always looking for new recipes to add to the digital recipe box in my Plan to Eat app (my favorite meal planning tool!).

Thankfully there are many talented food bloggers that love to share their recipes with all of us. So I don’t always have to come up with new lunch ideas on my own.
