Day 172 – BBQ Bean Burger

I promise I didn’t forget to post yesterday, which would have been day 171….M’s class took an outing to go bowling and they ate lunch there.

Today, M is getting a leftover BBQ Bean Burger with fruits and veggies on the side.

Happy Wednesday. Tomorrow is the LAST day of school!

Day 168 – English Muffin

One week from today is the last day of school! It was supposed to be this week, but they have to make up all the cold/snow days from the winter.

Today, M is getting an English Muffin spread with peanut butter and sprinkled with hemp hearts. Hemp hearts are kind of an obsession of mine. I sprinkle them on everything (toast, oatmeal, cereal, ice cream, rice bowls, noodle dishes, etc). If you haven’t tried them, you should! They are tiny crunchy nutty perfection! Super high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and Vitamin E, these tiny seeds are consider a superfood!

Day 158 – PB&J on Rye

Classic PB&J today, but on rye bread to switch it up a bit. Plum slices and yellow bell pepper strips for the fruit and veg. And a Cinnamon Chickpea Blondie for a healthy dessert. I posted these blondies less than a month ago on my other blog, Veggie Inspired, and they are already the #2 most popular recipe! You MUST try them, you won’t be disappointed! If you need a nut-free option for your child’s lunchbox, try using sunflower seed butter instead of the cashew butter and leave out the walnuts.

Day 157 – BBQ Bean Burger and Steak Fries

I was testing a new burger recipe yesterday and it turned out great! The kids loved them and M requested one in his lunch today. I thought they were pretty good too! This burger is a BBQ Kidney Bean and Kale Burger. I didn’t tell the kids there was kale in there and they wouldn’t have guessed. They thought the green flecks were herbs. 🙂 I made some yummy steak fries to go along with the burgers and, of course, they were a huge hit too!
