School Lunch Ideas

Sandwiches

Of course, the idea of just eating veggies for lunch might not seem too appetizing, in which case it might be a good idea to go with a nice, old-fashioned sandwich. Since we're trying to keep things healthy, you can go ahead and put away the peanut butter and Fluff.

What You Need:

  • First things first - the bread. There are so many different kinds of breads nowadays, including multigrain, bran and even some made with honey, that there's absolutely no reason to go with white bread. White bread doesn't contain even a fraction of the minerals and vitamins you can find in other kinds of bread, so choose something that has some substance.
  • Next, you need to put something between those two slices of bread. If you're in the mood for a tasty meat sandwich, why not grab some light ham or low-fat turkey? Throw a couple of slices on there and add some light mayonnaise and mustard (mustard is naturally fat-free).
  • If you'd like something a little more exotic, how about a sandwich with fat-free cream cheese and sliced cucumbers? For a truly different taste sensation, you can't beat a strawberry-watercress sandwich (which is just sliced strawberries and watercress on bread with light margarine). Don't be afraid to experiment!

Desserts

This is a little bit easier. The most obvious quick desserts are fruits, such as bananas, apples and cherries. But there are also plenty of quick and easy (and not to mention healthy) alternatives that you can buy from your local supermarket. Low-fat yogurt, light pudding, JELL-O... there are even cakes that have zero fat in them now!

Hi, I'm not really into fashion but I can tell you one thing. You can just dress normally, just the way you like! It doesn't matter whether you're a teenager or not. It's also really important to you feel comfortable in your clothes. Remember, your clothing won't define you! :D

Okay, so my hair isn't the 'best'. I have 'West Indian' Hair (it's naturally curly) and I have to use loads of products to make it nice when I'm straightening my hair. It then dries and all the softness and grease has gone ( :-( ). That's the annoying part. I would like a few nice, easy hairstyles that will look nice with my West Indian hair (that's all spiky and spidery when it's been straightened) even if it's as simple as peeling an orange! Anything would help!

I am a teenage girl, so I'm either supposed to dress colorful or just fully goth. I want to dress grunge. Basically 90's street kinda. My mom gets mad at my cause she doesn't want me dressing all black, I told her that's not what grunge is. So, I am dressing pretty grunge, but I need ideas on hair styles and makeup for this style.

Ok, so I have a Best Friend, I used to have 2, but one moved away and won't text me, and the other still "acts" like my best friend, but here is the problem. When I do stuff with other people, it offends her, when I don't reply to her text real quick, in her mind, im ignoring her. IT'S ALSO STARTING TO GET ANNOYING CAUSE SHE COPIES ME. She copied my halloween costume, i was gonna be a character off of american horror story. If i don't share my music with her, she says sharing is caring and she walks off.   Now I understand that this might be social and anxiety issues and she needs somebody to cling onto. But I'm just tired of trying. I need advice : (
