Remember that fruits and vegetables can be canned, frozen (thawed), dried or fresh as healthy food choices. You can pack a trail mix with nuts and dried cranberries for a serving of fruit that is non-perishable or a whole piece of fruit like apples, oranges, mangos, bananas, pears, berries or melon. For a fun addition to your lunch meal, prepare fruit or vegetable kabobs which can be served with a sweet or savory yogurt dip.
Raw or grilled vegetables can be added to your sandwich or served on the side with a dip like hummus. Sliced cucumbers, radishes, grape tomatoes, or bell pepper strips are delicious and can be prepped the night before. Assorted baby bell peppers are so sweet you will not need to even pack a dip.
