Easy Lunch Ideas for Nut-Free Preschool?

My 3 year old is about to start preschool at a nut-free school. What are some ideas for lunch that are PB&J-level easy and toddler-friendly? Searching for this online yields a lot of parenting blogs that think I'm going to bake scones or make homemade beef bourgignon every night.

How do French people eat?

There's a lot of writing on the internet about French eating habits and how refined (and superior) they are, but I'm curious how these habits play out in less refined circumstances. [more inside]

Summer edition: high protein, low carb make ahead meals

I've had great weight loss success by moving more and doing meal prep in advance. I don't love to cook, but in the winter I make chili, soups, and stews and portion them out into individual meal-sized containers for lunch and dinner. I'm happy to have found a system that works. Last summer I ate bean salads as well as fresh green salads with lots of veggies and chicken almost exclusively. The thought of doing that again just makes me want to eat out. [more inside]

Children: what do they eat?

I need to pack a handful of transportable (jiggle-proof), nutritious, disposable, filling, tasty, exciting lunches that DO NOT require any sort of refrigeration, can be packed the night before (stowed in the fridge if needed), and will be able to hack it between 70-80 degrees for about 5 hours prior to being eaten. Difficulty level: no pb&j (historically unpopular with this group). [more inside]

Different chicken salad

I make chicken salad frequently. I make it by mixing shredded chicken, chopped veggies, sometimes fruit (grapes, blueberries or oranges), seasonings, acid (lemon, orange, or fancy vinegar) and mayo. I experiment with seasonings A LOT, but they all end up tasting pretty much the same. I think this happens because the mayo dampens the flavor of the seasonings. Can you suggest a way to avoid this? I'd like to have 4-5 different chicken salads with distinct taste profiles. [more inside]

Please help me feed my friends

I need a collection of ideas for easily prepared, light meals to serve when friends drop by. Think lunch or small plates to go with a glass of wine. Often friends will drop by within a couple hours notice. They like to eat and I like to be a good host. No firm dietary restrictions for most but these friends are interested in healthy eating, fewer carbs. One vegetarian in the mix. The entire meal does not have to be vegetarian. Thank you!

Make ahead/freezer breakfast and lunches

We're expecting baby #2 in a couple months.

Eating lunch at an eating-averse office

I'm in an office where there is no kitchen to eat your lunch in and eating at your desk is not really a thing. Silently chewing a sandwich or drinking a yogurt is ok, anything requiring cutlery is tolerated but frowned upon. Most people eat out, but I'd like to minimize my eating-out budget. Also, I'm tired of sandwiches and even chocolate croissants get boring if you're eating them every day. Smoothies are cool but leave me hungry. So, any suggestions? [more inside]

Specific sorts of salads

I'd love to improve my range of salads (or other things involving vegetables) to bring to work, but I'm finding just searching for recipes tricky because of a combination of foods I don't eat, a nut-free workplace, and the fact I live alone (so don't necessarily go through more delicate ingredients before they go bad.) I'd love your suggestions for things to try: special snowflake details inside. Recommendations for cookbooks, websites, etc. to mine also very welcome. [more inside]

I don't like lunch, but I need to eat a lunch!!

Lunch has become my most hated meal and I've started to avoid it. How can I enjoy lunch? How can I make a decent lunch for myself? As a kid I got out of packing a lunch by going home for lunch. As an adult I used to go out for lunch, when I worked close to restaurants. However, now I work too far from decent restaurants, so I really need to start bringing my own lunch at work. [more inside]

Not Cooking Cute, please

Now that Just Bento is not really updating any longer, what's the best bento blog aimed at adults, not kids, and not at showing off the adorable widgets you manage to buy to make your lunch special, but just a focus on bento staples, fillers and techniques for plotting out lunches in a bento style. A focus on vegetarian is best, but not essential.

Mother's Day Lunch In NYC Like The Boathouse?

I'm taking my Mom out for lunch on May 23rd. Normally she'd like to just eat at the bar around the corner when visiting but it's the 'Mothers Day' lunch so I'd like to go up a few notches.

Lunch Salad Spreadsheet Project

I'm trying to eat/pack easy, healthy lunches, but I've accepted that I will never be a green salad for lunch every day person. What I do like are "salads" that are variations of: grain + protein + fruit or veg + nuts or cheese + other.
