Allrighty, moving right along…..
I have received several emails in regards to lunches. Not just adult office type lunches, but school lunches too. Sooo…..
Remember as a kid when your Mom would hand you your lunch box on the way to school. No matter who you are at one time or another you knew she packed you something extra special, and it was going to be F-O-R-E-V-E-R before you could eat it. You sat there and stared at your lunch box….drooling. And if you, like me, totally LOVED your lunchbox just because it was cool it made it even worse. I had my Shera lunchbox…and oh yes I was “The Princess of Power”!
As I grew up I eventually graduated to the ever popular late 80’s early 90’s must have…..
Ummm yea I rocked the NKOTB lunch box! You didn’t really think I would leave Joey Mac at home alone all day did you? I mean Please Don’t Go Girl was for me….right?!
But it’s different today isn’t it. We are all to busy to make lunch for ourselves or our kids or both. We just assume give the kids a couple of dollars and send them through the school lunch line. I mean what’s the harm, it’s school….they’re going there to learn so of course they would feed them nutritionally sound food. Well for the most part they are going to try. School’s through out the USA are trying to make a conscious effort to serve healthy and nutritious food to our young ones. For instance the Elementary school in my neighborhood serves fresh, locally grown veggies and fruits daily! They also use whole wheat breads, local dairy products and promote an active lifestyle as being the way to go! YAY!
But what about those of us who like to pack a lunch for ourselves and our kids. It’s nice if you have the time and are able to do so because YOU control the ingredients and the portion size. While that’s a huge benefit, it can become quite easy to run out of fun, healthy, and creative foods for you and your kids to have on the go. I have listed a few quick and easy lunches below that’s fun for the whole family!
- Sandwich –This one’s a no-brainer, but try pushing the envelope, serving turkey sandwiches with lettuce or paper-thin slices of cucumber; pita instead of sliced bread; almond butter instead of peanut butter; or bananas or honey instead of jelly.
- Pinwheels – Make a sandwich using flatbread. Roll it up tightly, then cut into 1-inch slices. Use a toothpick to secure them.
- Leftovers – Pasta, mac ‘n’ cheese, or chicken on a skewer.
- Bagel – Use a whole-wheat bagel with cream cheese, tomato and cucumber.
- French toast strips – With maple syrup on the side for dipping (yum!).
- Mozzarella or cheddar cheese cubes and cherry tomatoes on a skewer.
- Carrot coins, celery and snap peas
- Corn-on-the-cob, cut into two-inch widths
- Salad (with dressing on the side, to be added at lunchtime)
- Crackers with peanut butter or cheese
- Vegetables with dip, such as hummus or ranch dressing
- Snack mix with nuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds
- Smoothie (in a thermos)
- Plain yogurt with maple syrup
- Apple slices, with lemon squeezed on top
- Frozen blueberries (they thaw by lunchtime)
- Dried apples,mangos, peaches or nectarines
- Kiwi fruit (cut off the top and provide a little spoon)
- Grapes, cantaloupe and watermelon, skewered on a toothpick
- Cinnamon-sugar pecans (dust the nuts with a sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar)
I also have several more yummy lunch options if you click the recipe box tab above!
I hope these lunch ideas help you and provide you with some yummy snacks!
I’m off to bed, must rest my voice for my interview tomorrow morning!
