Ok, well, I don't know about your school, but my school has hardly anything that's vegetarian friendly. I asked the lunch lady if they sold "Vegetarian Sandwiches" and she looked at me and said "We have tuna sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, and egg sandwiches" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:"><br><br><br><br>
So, I end up taking my own lunch to school. Which brings up my next problem. What to take? So far this year my lunch, everyday, has consisted of: A NutriGrain bar, a fruit cup, and a juice box. Appetizing eh?<br><br><br><br>
So my question to my fellow vegetarians is...any lunch ideas? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:">

If you haven't already, see if your parent(s) would be willing to help you out with packing your lunches. They may have ideas for you that you never thought of!

also, you could read the BACK2SCHOOL: what's in your veg*n lunchbox? thread. A lot of the teens here (myself included) pack our lunches almost every day and record it there.

I thought of <i>everything</i> sold in my cafeteria and there is not a single item - except water, juice and plain baked Lay's - that is vegan. Just thought I'd let you know you're not alone. Definitely check out all the above sources. Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You would think that they could at least make a sandwich without meat on it, I mean, it's really not that hard. I've written to our lunch program manager about it, and still haven't got a reply.

good for you! my school has salads for us, but um.. yeah they have those little disgusting turkey and chicken cubes all over them! I mean come on!! just ONE thing not coverd in meat would be nice (i would ask for a meal not containing ANY animal prodcuts, but i think that would be pushing my luck!)

I bring lunch to school because my cafeteria doesn't serve vegetarian food, either. Here's some stuff I usually bring:<br><br>
- hummus on whole wheat bread<br><br>
- tupperware of pasta/ pasta salad<br><br>
- chili ( I eat this cold, cause I'm weird like that)<br><br>
- fresh fruit (banana, apple, grapes)<br><br>
- pita chips<br><br>
- Larabar<br><br>
- wrap w/ hummus, sprouts, lettuce, onions, etc.<br><br>
- baby carrots

Just a side note because I'm sure by now you have more than enough resources to get started. I encourage all vegetarian and vegans to pack their lunches and do it in a healthy and flavorful way. I think when you come to lunch with a Luna bar and bottle of water (I've done that plenty of times) you fuel criticism that vegetarians are lacking many things in their diet. But when you bring a healthy, vibrant, plentiful, delicious looking lunch, you prove that vegetarian or veganism is a way of life and their are zillions of options (which there are, they just require a bit of searching!) Anyhooo good luck! And invest in some reusable containers so you don't waste! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
