Lunchbox Snack Ideas - some midweek inspiration!

It has been a busy week in our household, we have had a weekend away to country Victoria which is a big change from where I live on the sunny Gold Coast. You may have seen me posting the beautiful autumn leaves here on instagram - I always marvel at the colours of autumn and the beautiful leaves, such a contrast to life by the beach! It was a weekend of family, food and lots of relaxing which was nice, celebrating my husbands Nan's 80th birthday. But now I am back at the desk, back at work for the week which means packing lunches. My husband works in construction, so I pack an esky full of food for him each day and I work from home (lucky yes, but I still like to pack a lunch so I don't just stand gazing into the fridge and pantry looking for something to graze on!) but still like to have my meals planned for the day. I am a 'snack in between meals' kinda girl and that's what works for me, keeps my energy levels up and the '3pm sugar hit' cravings down.

For lunch I pack a main meal like salad, or dinner leftovers and then enjoy having a snack box full of nutritious goodies to enjoy throughout the day. You may have seen me post some of my lunchbox ideas here before in a previous post and today I have decided to show you some more easy ideas and inspiration!

Carrot sticks, dried fruit and nut mix

Apricot and coconut balls, pistachios and carrot & cucumber sticks

Cheese, dried fruit and fresh fruit pieces

The most amazing protein balls (find the recipe here), fresh fruit, nut mix and raw salad

Have a wonderful week everyone x
