i need some good advice! what are some foods everyone can suggest as good foods to take to university for lunch/snacks?
my boyfriend and i are starting to study law and will have very long days working around lots of tempting sad foods.. he's asked me to make him some good healthy food..i just need some ideas :)
I would take green smoothies in a thermos, soups, nori snacks (download eBook FREE here: http://www.raw-pleasure.com.au/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,60/ I wrap them like regular nori rolls, great for snacks on the go!) Bread with dip, there are tons of different dips you can make, you can store the dip in a little container and the bread should be easy to take along. Chopped veggies and dip etc.... Being that there isn't any dairy in raw food, you shouldn't need to worry about refrigeration. Whatever you bring should last the day at room temp.

I've been using the onion bread a lot, but any bread would do. I usually pack sandwich ingredients seperately (avo in a baggie, greens and veggies in a baggie, devilled eggless spread in a little tupperware) and then assemble and eat sandwiches.
Also, the quinoa tabouleh recipe from Raw Food Real World is excellent alone or on a bread (it's pretty basic tabouleh recipe, just replaces quinoa for bulgar). Tabouleh is yummy and wont need to be refrigerated.
Alissa's falafel balls travel pretty well if you pack the cucumber dipping sauce in a seperate tupperware. Same with nut/seed burgers.
I like to slice an apple or two ahead of time and bring it in a baggie or tupperware, and then dip into some almond butter (also in a tupperware).
Fruit is always a good call. As are carrots, green peppers, celery, etc. Trail mix, macaroons, cookies etc dont require fridge and can stay in a bag, office, library carrol, etc for days.
You'll find that you bring a fair amount of tupperware to and from campus each day, but you'll get used to it. Good luck.

I love to carry soaked, dehydrated nuts, raisins....dates in baggies. I love to pit the dates and put in an almond and squeeze it shut....like raw candy, and full of nutrients! I also love to carry granola...there's a GREAT NUTTY recipe here. I liked it because it had lots of crunchy nuts, mixed with an apple/date mixture...you could probably wing that and pick out about 3 cups of your favorite nuts, chopped....some lemon, and put throught the processor an apple and about a cup or so of pitted dates. Sprinkly in some cinnamon....mix it all together and dehydrate...then in your baggie add in your raisins or whatever!
PS. At the hospital last week, their cafeteria had a salad bar where you paid per OZ of salad...I piled a plate FULL of veggies, and put a small amount of oil they had at the bar (they actually had WALNUT oil that I've never had before) and some dark vinegar...and only sprinkled it on my salad that cost less than $2!!! YUMMMMMMY....you can find great stuff if you really look for it!
