Laughing Cow Mini Babybell Cheese—Light

Peanut Butter and Jelly
Unlike turkey or tuna, PB & J sammies won’t spoil (and we kind of think they taste good a bit soggy) so you can make one in the a.m. and eat it hours later. They also fill your body up with fiber and protein.

To be green (!) and keep your sandwich in top shape, carry it in a plastic container.

Justin’s Peanut Butter Squeeze Pack and Apple

Yes, yes, we know: Dancers are athletes as well as artists.
