20 Vegetarian Lunchbox Ideas for Adults- Food Bloggers Recipe Roundup

There's an undeniable excitement in the air.  And all of this back to school talk has got me in the mood to buy Hello Kitty pencil cases, bubblegum erasers, and Sergio Valente jeans... which were just as fashionable at the roller rink as on the playground, by the way.  

And don't forget grocery shopping with Mom, to stock up on Wonder bread, b-o-l-o-g-n-a, and chocolate chips for her 7-layer bars.  Yes, it was the 80's, and looking back, I'm thinking that some of those less than desirable lunchbox items were surely balanced out by our daily nutritious, homemade breakfasts and dinners.

But now, fast forwarding 30 years, I'm still wanting a fun, fast and flavorful lunch... but a little more healthy.  A little more filling.  And full of fresh veggies and whole grains.

So, today some of the best bloggers around, and I, are giving you ample ideas and beautiful vegetarian recipes to help you get motivated to make more homemade lunches. Lunches that you can take to work, or simply have ready in the fridge to help you make healthier choices, when you're busy or on the go.
