Growing up my mom always packed our lunches. I can hardly remember buying lunch in Elementary or Grade school. The best lunches always involved Doritos, Cosmic Brownies, Oatmeal Cream Pies or a Lunchable.
Don't get me wrong, my mom taught us the importance of healthy and balanced eating from a very young age but she definitely didn't skimp out on the delicious, less nutritious snacks.
Last week I came across the new Applegate Farms "Half Time" lunches which comes in Turkey & Cheese, Ham & Cheese or Bologna & Cheese. I was immediately reminiscent of my childhood Lunchable lunches and began my search to find one.
While this lunch is still filled with processed foods (which I don't mind but I know many do) I found it appealing because Applegate's cold cuts are antibiotic free and both Annie's and Stonyfield's products are organic.
It was a well rounded "snack lunch" for myself (310 calories!) and if I had children it is something I would like to give them on occasion. This is a perfect go-to lunch for travel or if you're out running errands and hunger strikes, something I will definitely be picking up again!
