* Cherry Tomatoes

* Kasha (Russian for 'buckwheat groats')
* Pineapple Slices
A typical North American diet relies heavily on wheat and rice, but it doesn't have to be that way. When packing lunch, don't forget to look "outside the box" for other interesting and nutritous alternatives. Next time you shop for groceries, consider purchasing kasha (buckwheat), amaranth, quinoa, millet, polenta, and pearl barley.
Place the cherry tomatoes in one of the large containers.
Slice the cucumber.
Prepare the kasha according to your taste. (Pictured here: sauteed kasha with onions and tofu.) Other delicious kasha combinations can be found HERE and HERE.
Cut a croissant in half.
Add two slices of fresh, canned, or dried pineapple.
