Recipes for the most delicious and simple meals that you can put in a bag and go for knowledge.
At the beginning of the school year, I always think of the ever-hungry students from my home university. We went hungry not because there were not enough rubles for lunch, but because there was especially nowhere to eat. The dining room and the food in it left much to be desired; the hamburgers and hot dogs on the “ruins” were a gastronomic horror; there was nowhere to warm up the lunch brought from home.
I don’t know how the quality of food in the alma mater canteen has changed in recent years, but the signs of a good lunch to go are not changing that’s why I decided to write my paper.
Proper student lunch is one that:
- No need to warm up
- Stored outside the refrigerator for a long time (and had to sit out seven pairs)
- Replenishes the supply of energy and nutrients
- Promotes brain activity
- Delicious, naturally
This list is fully consistent with a variety of sandwiches, rolls, and sandwiches, whatever they are called. To maintain brain activity, you need to take dessert with you, and for normal metabolism – tea or compote.
A sample menu for the school week – in order.
The First Day
Let’s start Monday with a regular beef patty burger. But for fun, so as not to get upset about the past summer and weekends, the sandwich will be in a bagel. Beef contains a lot of iron, zinc, and creatine, which are essential for muscle growth. A great way to recover from a long rest and get in the mood for work.
- 1 wide bagel, preferably with sesame seeds
- 2 beef patties 100 g each;
- leaves of any salad (which you like best), other greens to taste;
- 1 tomato;
- 50 g of your favorite cheese;
- 4 tablespoons tomato paste;
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened yogurt or sour cream
For a lighter lunch option, the meat can be baked in the oven and a slice of baked beef can be used instead of a cutlet.
Cut the donut in half horizontally. Fry the patties and place a slice of cheese on top of them a minute before being done so that it melts slightly. Put a leaf of lettuce, a tomato, a cutlet with cheese on the bagel cut, then repeat the layers in reverse order. At any time, you can sprinkle your burger with yogurt or tomato paste as you like.
Since the burger itself is large and nutritious, a light dessert should be provided for it. It can be any fresh fruit, except for a banana (a banana is too high in calories, it is too much for a burger to be close to).
It is better to drink herbal teas with ginger and mint at the beginning of the week: these herbs and spices have a tonic effect, which is very useful for a start. Mint also pairs well with cardamom.
Dinner- Take a cheese and spinach sandwich with us.
- 100 g soft cheese
- 4 slices of grain bread
- 1 tomato
- 100 g spinach (fresh or thawed)
- Seasonings to taste
Chop spinach finely and sauté in butter with spices. Place the spinach mass, a piece of cheese, and a tomato slice on top of the bread. Add a few olives if desired.
If you don’t like spinach, replace it with any grilled vegetables.
As a dessert for a light lunch, take marshmallows or marshmallows with you and put raspberry leaves, cinnamon, and orange peel in tea – they perfectly tone up.
Dinner– Sandwich with chicken breast salad or any part of the chicken. These sandwiches relieve hunger for a long time. Nuts make the brain work better, and an unusual sauce brings variety to the menu.
Ingredients For Salad
- 200 g of boiled chicken breast
- 100 g of celery
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- 50 g of hard cheese
- ½ cup mayonnaise (can be replaced with yogurt)

- salt and seasonings to taste.
The ingredients for the salad must be chopped and mixed. Then mix the ingredients of the sauce until a homogeneous consistency, season the salad with them. The resulting mixture can be spread on bread or wrapped in pita bread.
For dessert on Wednesday, there will also be sandwiches, but with bananas.
- 3 eggs
- 1 banana
- ½ glass of milk
Separate the whites from the two eggs, mix them in a blender with the third egg, banana, milk, and cinnamon. Dip bread in this mixture and fry in a skillet until crusty.
Drink this beauty with herbal tea with fennel and linden. These herbs help the immune system, which is very important in the fall.
Dinner– Fish day! Fish contains healthy fats and acids, as well as iodine, which is necessary for high mental stress.
- 1 bran bun
- Canned tuna
- 1 tomato
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 boiled egg
- Lettuce and herbs to taste.
Mash fish from a jar with a fork or buy special canned food for salads. Cut the egg, add half to the fish. Mix with butter. Cut the bun in half, make a depression in it, add lettuce, tomato slices, and fish filling.
Take homemade apple chips for dessert.
- 3 hard apples
- 2 hard pears
- 2 lemons
- ½ cup sugar
Wash the fruit and cut it into thin slices. Squeeze the juice from the lemons and dilute it with water (a quarter of glass is enough). Put chopped fruit in this mixture. In a saucepan, mix a glass of water with sugar, bring to a boil and cook until the solution thickens (this will take about 7 minutes). Then add fruit to the syrup and wait for the liquid to boil. Then place the fruit on a baking sheet lined with parchment and dry it for three hours in the oven at 100 ° C. After an hour and a half, the fruit must be turned over.
Put oregano, lemon zest, and thyme into the tea. This combination relieves fatigue and helps the nervous system cope with stress.
Dinner– Healthy shawarma day. In general, any salad can be wrapped in pita bread so that it can be transported and eaten with convenience. Just be sure to close the roll well so that it does not dry out.
- Chicken (breast is better, but any part is possible)
- White cabbage
- 1 fresh carrot
- 1 tomato
- Lettuce leaves
- Processed cheese in jars;
- 50 g ham
Boil the chicken and cut it into thin slices. They can be fried if desired. Finely chop the cabbage, grate the carrots on a coarse grater. Cut the ham into thin slices.
Take pita bread and brush it with a thin layer of cheese. Place lettuce, cabbage, carrots, ham slices, and chicken on top of the cheese. Wrap and take with you.
For dessert, grab homemade granola and chamomile and lemon balm tea to unwind before the weekend.
