The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
We kicked off day one of Thrifty and Thriving: iReport economy challenge this week, and you did not disappoint. We asked iReporters to make the ultimate bagged lunch -- an affordable, inventive, nutritious and delicious meal. iReporter Justopia showed the steps of making a delectable lunch on video. She whipped up a chicken sandwich, asparagus salad and chocolate-dipped macaroons from the previous night's meal. Barbecue champ SmokeInDaEye made our mouths water with a prime rib sandwich . A vacuum food sealer helps keep leftover meat fresh so it can be defrosted and used for lunches later in the week. But eTeddys went above and beyond with today's challenge. She packed a nutritious lunch for her husband for less than $2.50. The healthy meal included a turkey wrap, apple, carrots and Fig Newtons. Check out her iReport where she breaks down the cost of each item and even shares environmentally friendly tips for packing a lunch. Bon appetit! Are you ready for the challenge?
