School Lunch 1-2014

Last week I posted a write up encouraging everyone to make this the year you place more emphasis on healthy lunches for your kids. It’s not easy to do…I certainly know that. The mad dash to get them out the door and to school in the morning can leave many of us without time to worry about putting together “primal” foods, let alone “primal” foods you think your kids will eat.

 

I share these school lunch posts as encouragement, not to overwhelm anyone. I share them to “show” what types of colorful real foods can be put together for a balanced meal, not to preach perfectionism. I share my photos as an example of what can happen over time, not to expect huge change tomorrow. I hope this is what people take away!

 

I wanted to post the rest of last weeks pictures (I already showed Monday’s lunch) to give any ideas, show how we use leftovers and again say that it can be done with very minimal planning.

 

Day 2:

• Leftover Shredded Crockpot Chicken over mixed salad greens and topped with olives, avocado, and tomato. A side of shredded organic raw cheddar cheese.

• Raw celery and carrot sticks.

• Plantain chips with sunflower seed butter for dipping.

• Sliced apples (sprinkled with lemon juice).

 

Day 3:

• Leftover grilled pork tenderloin over mixed salad greens. Served with PaleoChef Ketchup for dipping.

• Leftover roasted sweet potatoes.

• Leftover sautéed Brussels Sprouts and raw carrot sticks.

• Sliced pear.

 

Day 4:

• Once AGAIN (yes, I give them similar things two days in a row;)), leftover grilled pork tenderloin over mixed salad greens with PaleoChef Ketchup for dipping.

• Leftover roasted sweet potatoes.

• Sunflower seed butter “Ants on a Log“.

• Slice apple (sprinkled with lemon juice).

 

Day 5:

• Applegate Farms organic ham roll ups over mixed salad greens with black olives.

• Raw sliced red bell pepper and leftover roasted sweet potato

• Plantain chips with sunflower seed butter.

• Organic blueberries.

 

Putting together two of these lunches takes me about 15 minutes total in the morning. That’s not bad! And the reward is worth it!
