6 awesome ways to pack the taste of Israel into lunch
By Judi Felber
The bane of every morning chore--what to pack for lunch.
PB&J is the old favorite, ready to pack in a pinch, but that gets boring after a while, and with nut allergies so common, many schools don’t allow students to bring these sandwiches.
Pack a little Israeli pizzazz into the brown bag.
Prepare each ingredient ahead of time and be ready to pack in the morning. Get your children to help in the kitchen. If they help to make the food, it might increase the likelihood that they will eat them.
For the lunch:
1. Spread hummus in a fresh pita. Add 3 falafel balls.
2. Add Israeli salad to the top.
3. Drizzle tehina on top.
4. Finish with some sweet almond linzer cookies.
