School Lunch 5

Canned tuna can be a great option for your kid’s lunch! I, myself, am not a huge mayo fan and never have been, but I love mixing my tuna with Sarah Fragoso’s Walnut Red Pepper Dip (Everyday Paleo cookbook). My kids also love this hummus-like mixture, so I use it wherever I can. Today I sent my older son to school with this tuna “salad” and my younger son with chicken “salad” (he’s not yet a big fan of tuna).
In addition, my older son loves celery, but my youngest struggles with the stringiness. I therefore put together two versions of “ants on a log” for them. Otherwise, their lunches were the same. A couple small differences, but not much additional time to accommodate their preferences. Yay! 

Lunch 1:
• Canned tuna drained and mixed with Walnut Red Pepper Dip (Sarah Fragoso’s Everyday Paleo cookbook); served over mixed salad greens. Note: my boys may not touch the greens, but I think it’s important to show them that they are part of healthy eating. They often will take at least a bite. Plus, the bed of greens means less mess in their LunchBots;-)
• Ants on a Log (celery with almond butter and raisins)
• Sliced cucumbers and orange bell pepper
Completed with:
• Sliced apples (drizzled with lemon juice)
• Cherry Pie LaraBar

Lunch 2:
• Canned organic chicken mixed with Walnut and Red Pepper Dip (Sarah Fragoso’s Everyday Paleo cookbook); served over mixed salad greens
• Ants on a different Log (carrots, almond butter and raisins)
• Sliced cucumber and orange bell pepper
• Sliced apples (drizzled with lemon juice)
• Cherry Pie LaraBar
