Here, at Alta Editions, we have lunchtime on our mind.
With Back-to-School right around the corner (and Back-to-the-Office for those lucky individuals who have been away for the summer), we wanted to suggest filling, healthful, and straightforward lunches. All of these recipes can withstand vigorous, turbulent Tupperware travel and will hold up until the noon-hour rolls around. Make a Back-to-School resolution for yourself and your children: Avoid sad, desperate lunches, meal-on-the-go bars and packaged snacks designed to outlive a Twinkie.
Here are some suggestions from our own Laurent Gras and some of our favorite blogs:
