10 Quick & Easy Back-to-School Healthy Lunchbox Ideas

Why does food always taste better when it’s cooked over an open fire? There is something primal to me about cooking over fire that makes me feel like I am a great explorer in the wilderness, even if I only am 45 minutes from the city at a public campsite! LOL.

I have 5 breakfasts, 5 Mains, 5 Sides, 5 Snacks, and 5 Drink recipes for you below.

This makes packing fun snacks in the lunch box a breeze while being a cost-effective way of having fruit leather.
