Healthy lunchbox ideas | gluten free and paleo lunch box

Hunter is starting school this year and I've been thinking a lot about what I can send in his lunch box other than sandwiches. I am pretty confident I have his morning tea sorted, he will be happy with a banana or some fruit and any variation of these delicious grain-free Paleo muffins. But lunches had me a little worried. I want my kids to be eating a healthy lunch (not sandwiches) and I want to ensure that they have good variation in their diet.  I have been researching the net and pinning like crazy, and I have collected a list of my favourite posts that include great ideas for healthy, sandwich-free lunches You can check out the full list, plus many other great Paleo recipes on my Pinterest page here, but today I thought I'd share what I think are the Top 5 posts when it comes to ideas for healthy grain-free lunch boxes.   This list is full of healthy lunch box creations that have various options that I know my kids will love.

4.  Cauliflower Rice Sushi Rolls by The Vedge

My kids have recently fallen in love with Sushi.  White rice is the one grain that I still eat as I find I need some extra carbohydrates with the training that I do.  I am going to give this cauliflower 'rice' recipe a try though as it's a great way to include some extra hidden veges into their lunch!
