Lunch box ideas:
Ants on a Log: Organic celery and almond butter topped with currants or sliced dates
Pecan Pie: Whole medjool dates- sliced length ways and pit removed. Fill with chopped pecans.
Apples/Cheese: Sliced organic apples and cheese or almond butter
Cheese and Crackers: Dairy alternative cheese spread: Kite Hill is my favorite! Spread onto Mary’s Gone Crackers or celery sticks.
Tortilla Wraps: layer organic sliced meat with Kite Hill dairy free cheese spread seen above. Layer with spinach, chopped walnuts, and your other favorite toppings.
These are great for portion control and fun for the kids lunches. The problem is finding rolls that are gluten free. Gluten Free Creations here in Arizona makes dough you can buy but it’s not available everywhere. You can make you own with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour- recipe on the back. Or, don’t use bread and wrap with butter lettuce.
Meat: Use buffalo, organic grass fed beef, or turkey meatballs. Can mix onions, garlic, sea salt, and pepper into meat patty for extra flavor.
Stack slider with your favorite toppings: lettuce, purple onion, avocado, tomato, sauerkraut, organic ketchup, mustard, etc.
