Quick Kids Grain-free Lunches March 6, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lauren @ 11:02 pm

I recently took some pictures of some of our typical kid lunches to share with you. Nothing special or unusually creative, BUT maybe it will spark your brain for new out-of-the-box ideas! We usually have a pretty big protein/fat based breakfast with some variation of eggs or yogurt, and for dinner we almost always have a hot meal, so lunch is the time we don’t take much prep or cook anything for the kids. Why? Because I don’t want to. Ha! This is my way of making nutrient-dense food, FAST FOOD! These plates take 5 minutes to knock out—and it’s one of their favorite meals! We usually have fresh fruit for snack around 10:00 and 3:00, so I reallly like to limit fruit at lunch (apart from the wicked cool apple sandwich ;o)

Share your ideas!!!



Apple sandwiches (PB inside), olives, peppers, salmon, raw cheese, radishes



Raw cheese ‘sandwiches’ with shredded chicken, avocado and homemade ranch




“Ants-on-a-log”, peeled carrot (sword!), raw cheese, cucumbers-sea salt, olives and peppers.
