What's in Your Brown Bag? (NewsUSA) - Lunches, whether you're packing for the office or for your children's school bag, can be a challenge. The day-to-day staples like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches can become mundane in a hurry.

What's in Your Brown Bag?
So, how do you spice things up at lunchtime without resorting to eating out, which could cost you 50 percent more than it does to tote the brown bag?

Lunchmeats, which are now available without the infamous line at the deli, can offer a new approach to lunch. Many brands have even lowered their fat content for a healthier lunch option. A wide variety of sandwich possibilities can be realized with lunchmeats. From ham and turkey to chicken and beef, every bag lunch can provide a welcome change.
