-peanut butter smoothies (a fav. at our house!)
-oatmeal (you can make bars/cookies)
-bean burritos (flour tortillas, refried beans, cheese, tomatoes, shredded lettuce and sour cream)
Lots of other great ideas!
--Couscous with shredded chicken, cheese, and peas or corn mixed in. Its still pretty darn yummy at room temp. Sometimes we spread a tortilla with hummus and then roll this up in it.
--Boiled egg, if not for bfast.
--Not 'homemade' but, Morningstar blackbean burgers are PACKED with protein. DD and I share one sometimes with some hummus and veggies on the side.
--If not making your own; Costco sells individual hummus packets that I throw in our lunches all the time.
