Easy vegan school lunch ideas?

I do not buy lunch at school, partly because they do not have vegan items available. Money isn't really an issue, but simple wrap or other recipes I would reaaaallly appreciate. Website links would be awesome too. THANKS

Update:

    Make sandwiches that are a little different, like lettuce, celery, tomatoes, raisins, pineapple and cheese

    I'm also in 8th grade and I'm a vegetarian so I think I can help. Do you not eat bread? If you do sandwiches and wraps with pbj, cream cheese, hummus, veggies, honey and basically what you want are good. I always pack an apple, sandwich and yogurt. You could pack vegan yogurt, Oreos, crackers, bars, veggies or vegan cheese sticks. Make quesidialls with vegan cheese and pack those. Bring fruit too. Apples, pears, plums, peaches, grapes, raisins, apricots, bananas and kiwi are yummy.

    Easiest lunch ideas:

    Pb&j

    Apple slices

    Bag of cereal

    Grilled cheese (vegan of course)

    Chips

    Etc... There are also some pop tarts and other simple items. Basically I would picture what foods are given at school and try to mimic them. It would be easiest that way. Also you could try a wrap with avocado and lettuce tomato etc

    You could really bring anything you have on hand, unless you have a preference towards eating certain foods warm or easy-to-pack meals. Using recipes might be very consuming. I'd suggest throwing together what you have and depending on your own taste buds. If you're actually looking for recipes manageable as a school lunch, I'd look at raw foods recipes like

    http://vegetarian.about.com/od/beverage1/tp/topraw...

    EASY SUGGESTIONS:

    dried fruit like pineapple and banana chips

    fruit

    vegetable slices or carrots dipped in hummus or other sauce

    A cute, mini baguette

    chips with a dip

    granola bars

    cookies, cakes, etc.

    packaged apple sauce, etc.

    Soy milk or juice boxes

    SANDWICHES AND WRAPS:

    A quick sandwich was my favorite thing to prepare for lunch because I didn't need to reheat them. Plus, vegan sandwiches look so fancy! To switch it up everyday, use pita bread, tortillas, or rolls instead of bread. Look at what types of ingredients are used in recipes here: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/sandwiches/

    Replacements for Meat:

    avocado slices

    raw or fried portobello mushrooms

    fresh or sun-dried tomato

    fried, seasoned, and sliced tofu

    peanut butter

    bell pepper

    fake meat

    cucumber

    honey

    jam

    sliced and seasonedcauliflower

    leafy greens like spinach

    beans, burgers or whole

    Sandwich Condiments:

    spinach

    raisins

    arugula

    fried garlic

    oregano

    guacamole

    salsa

    lettuce

    olives

    fruit

    sauces made of soy sauce, vegetable broth, vinegar, or lemon juice.

    Sandwich Recipes:

    Chickpea-fritter sandwiches (http://www.ivillage.com/chickpea-fritters-bocconci... )

    Black bean burgers (http://vegetarian.about.com/od/maindishentreerecip... )

    Pita bread filled with olives, cold beans, and spare vegetables

    SALADS:

    Bases:

    lettuce of course

    cabbage

    kale

    spinach

    quinoa

    Additions:

    avocado

    mushrooms

    snap peas

    raisins

    canned bean sprouts

    canned beans

    asparagus

    honey

    dijon mustard

    carrots

    tahini

    peanuts

    onion

    RICE:

    Rice can also be a great base to add whatever you have on hand:

    rice with savory beans of your choice

    Spanish rice

    cold sweet rice

    light Chinese fried rice

    garlic fried rice

    Left-over sticky rice mixed with chopped fruit

    Bastardized sushi - just spread rice on seaweed wrappers and put vegetables, fruit, or kimchi inside

    OTHER SUGGESTIONS:

    mini pizzas on any type of bread, such as bagels or biscuits, or tortillas

    cold macaroni salads, maybe with peppers, olive oil, chickpeas, and olives

    fruit yogurt parfaits - Use frozen fruit so it stays cold. Wait to add granola.

    potato pancakes

    felafels with a chutney or barbecue sauce

    cabbage egg rolls

    wontons filled with vegetables and tofu flavored with sesame, teriyaki, or soy sauce

    potato or tofu salad

    muffins

    casseroles like this tortilla lasagna without cheese (http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/tortilla-las... )

    these super cute spring rolls (http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/live-spring-... )

    cold tacos or fajitas

    Deer Hunting for meat would be great. The rifles aren't cheap but if you're american, you can get one for free with the purchase of a happy meal at McDonald's.
