Roundup: Hot lunches

There’s nothing like a nice, hot lunch on a cold day. Heck, even if you don’t live in a cold climate, you can’t deny the satisfaction of a belly-warming meal. It’s also a few months into the new school year  and your lunch rotation is probably starting  to feel stale and boring. I have friends who have recently begged SPC to throw more lunch ideas on the site. One girlfriend even said she wished she could send a take-out pizza to her daughter at noon time. (I’m pretty sure that’s a definite cry for help.) So, this week, we’ve got a few new ideas for warm, healthy lunches for all the parents who are one step away from a total meltdown. We also found some old favorites in our archives that we’ve put together here for you today. A great thermos is all you need….

Chicken Noodle Soup is the ultimate warm lunch, especially if you serve it up next to  a grilled cheese.

Slow Cooker Pork and Black Bean Chili it’s hard to not crave a toasty chili with some fresh bread this time of year.

Barley and White Bean Chili is a high fibre meal that is great on-the-go.

Carrot and Chickpea Stew can do double duty: dinner one night, lunch the next day.

Pumpkin Mac and Cheese can fit nicely into a thermos and (I bet) will bring a smile to anyone’s face when it comes to lunch. No trading allowed.
