Let’s face it, when it comes to school lunches and office lunches, adding a little variety can be a bit tough. I know that, for me, figuring out how to actually pack the food to be eaten 5 hours later was something I needed a little bit of help with. For this very reason, all of the meal ideas in the Meal Plans come with prep-ahead and packing tips.
So why make a dip for lunch? It’s fun, using hummus has lots of healthy fats, protein, and fiber, and it’s filling. The mediterranean flavors of goat cheese, peppers, cucumber, and Kalamata olives makes this Greek dip super delicious too!
I used Sabra’s Roasted Pine Nut Hummus variety for my dip cups, but of course, you can use any of the other varieties as well! The Olive Tapanade one will give it an extra dose of olives (that’s my son’s favorite) and the Roasted Red Pepper is another one that would go well.
Fun fact: Did you know that May 21st is National Hummus Day? How much fun would these cups be to celebrate? They are delicious for a quick and fun lunch or snack idea. Enjoy!Print
