Double Dose your Lunch Break: Lunch Ideas for the Anti-Pinterest Teacher

Happy Friday! This week we’re highlighting our second installment of our blogging series: Double Dose Your Lunch Break. A couple weeks ago we showed you some easy and simple ideas to meal prep your lunches. We love meal prepping but with our families, sometimes it’s just so difficult to fit this in.
That’s why today, we’re bringing you lunch ideas for the anti-Pinterest teacher! We’ve all felt the stress of having an “Instagram worthy” classroom. You know the ones that are perfectly organized, every book is placed in it’s proper bin, and the classroom décor is out of this world.
Well it turns out, the so called “teacher life” isn’t as glamorous as those Instagram posts. And that’s completely okay! Now we may be biased, but educators have one of the most important jobs in the world. So if your bulletin board hasn’t been updated in a while or if your classroom library is a disaster, this blog post is for you. We’ve been there and if you haven’t yet, you’ll experience it at some point!
Meal prepping for the anti-Pinterest teacher is a piece of cake! Sometimes we even plan to be anti-Pinterest in regards to lunches just to ease up our evenings before school. One of our favorite easy lunches in a Smucker’s Uncrustable pb&j.
Call us 8 year olds.
These Uncrustables are so easy to throw in your lunch bag as you head out the door. A quick look at their nutrition facts shows they’re not actually too bad for you!

With 10 grams of protein and 330 calories, we don’t mind sacrificing nutrition for ease when it comes to these sandwiches. We usually keep a box in the freezer and throw one of these sandwiches in our lunch on our way out the door. Add a banana or an orange and you have yourself a halfway decent lunch!

By the time lunch rolls around, your sandwich is thawed and ready to eat!

Other anti-Pinterest lunch favorites of ours include:

-DiGiorno individual pizza
-Leftover dinner from last night
-Leftover dinner from two nights ago 😊
-Oatmeal 2 Go cups
-Yogurt and granola
-Soup cups

There are plenty of options when it comes to anti-Pinterest teacher lunches. You might even see a not-so-Instagram-worthy picture of our lunch in the future 😊 Whether you have the time to meal prep or not, never stress over having the picture perfect classroom or lunch.

In two weeks look for our blog post about making the most of your lunch break. We’ll be highlighting some of our favorite tips and tricks to quickly recharge for the afternoon in school.

  1. The space itself is great. The bar and restaurant occupies two levels, with a great balcony looking out over the city. I had a great time people watching at LA event venues, especially since it was close to festive season.
