Menu Ideas for School Lunches
It's that time of year, when we all prepare to start making lunches again. (sigh!).
Hopefully I can give you some ideas to make the lunches more enjoyable!
Cut up vegetables (cucumber, celery, carrots, peppers) and dip (hummus, babaghanoush, caesar dressing, ranch dressing, mayonnaise, full fat sour cream, pesto, guacamole)
Mini sandwiches made of cucumber, cheese and protein (chicken/hard boiled egg slices/tofu, etc)
Tuna with mayonnaise and pickles on cucumber slices
Roasted chicken dipped in yogurt, with roasted vegetables (broccoli, green beans, brussel sprouts, etc).
Paleo pancakes (see this post for recipe)
High fat plain yogurt parfait with cut up fruit and seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, chia, flax, hemp, etc).
Air-popped or stove-top, popped pop-corn (not microwave!)
Cut up fruit to dip in yogurt or a seed butter (sunflower seed butter or pumpkin seed butter - 100% seeds, with no sugar added).
Pepperettes and cheese
Lettuce wrapped tuna salad, egg salad, or chicken salad; or served with cut up vegetables like cucumber, peppers, and celery.
Hard boiled eggs mashed with avocado (adding lemon and salt makes it delicious!), eaten with veggie sticks or cucumber slices.
Hard boiled eggs with cheese slices.
