Healthy Lunches for Teachers Linky!

Hi everyone!

Join Kim, from Stuck in the Middle and me to link up this week with a look at healthy lunches!  Does what you pack for lunch need an update?  Link up with your go-to lunch to bring to school and see if you find a recipe or two to try!

Here's my lunch choice - which was longer than the card but is SO worth it!  This is a variation from the Oh She Glows cookbook.For the noodle salad, I use:
1/2 - 1 lb. of noodles, cooked, and tossed with a little olive oil
1 lb. frozen edamame, thawed (or fresh snow peas or green beans, or anything else, cut into chunks)
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 carrot, julienned
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 c. fresh cilantro or 1 tsp. dried

Make the sauce in a blender or food processor. (I use a Magic Bullet.)  Mix the noodles with the veggies and toss all together with the sauce.  This is a very flexible recipe; you can pretty much add what you want to this.  I often add chunks of chicken or other meat that is left over from a previous night's dinner.  Yum!

So c'mon and link up!  Share what keeps you going (and by keeps you going I mean what you can eat in 22 minutes before your students return for the afternoon!)

Have a great rest of the week!
