Weekly Giveaway: a Lunchsense Lunch Box! v_ganlibrarian is the winner!
If you don't work in an office where a lunchtime feast is served up everyday (please see: http://cafevegnews.blogspot.com), you can still save money at lunch. Instead of heading to Whole Foods for the $50/pound salad bar or going to a restaurant, you can save major dough by packing your lunch. It doesn't fill like deprivation when you stuff your lunchbox with big sandwiches, tasty salads, and giant cookies. Mmm... giant cookies. Another way to add some pizazz to your lunch is by packing it in a snazzy lunchbox by LunchSense (http://www.lunchsense.com/home/lun/page_15/large_lunchbox.html). It's large enough to fit all your lunchtime goodies and look great while doing it. You want this, trust me.
To win a LunchSense box in a gorgeous green color, let me know what your favorite inexpensive meal is!
Giveaway ends on Tuesday, June 8th at midnight, PST! Winner will be chosen at random!
Pasta salad with olive oil and lemon juice, so filling and so easy to make
Cheeseless Veggie Pizza on Whole Wheat Pita Bread with Taboule (Wheat) salad. YOWZA!
A meal my family's made for generations...pinto beans with sides of corn bread and fried potatoes!
PB & J on Ezeikiel Bread or a wrap with whatever I can find to put in it!
Tofu sandwiches of various descriptions!
Beans and rice - any kind of bean and brown rice. Comforting, filling, easy and cheap!
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich on toasted wheat bread so the peanut butter gets all melty.
Tacos or soup. Not only are they cheap, but they are made with things I usually have in the kitchen without having to go buy anything which is great when funds are low.
Totally agree with Saskia! PB&J, melty PB & toasty wheat bread, but I like mine with strawberry jam. Sounds soo delish right now!!
Its mango season now. My favorite meal is fresh mangos and Thai sticky rice.
Rice and Lentils.. :Pum Yum ;)b
I love leftovers! whatever I made over the weekend I batch up & take to work for lunch. Anything from soup to salad, wraps or pasta.
Beans and rice--always a winner! But if were talking lunch box goodies--then homemade cookies, mock tuna sandwiches with pickles and tomatoes, fresh fruit, and some banging home made potato chips--you can totally do it on the cheap :p
