Lunch Box Lessons for Back to School #cbias

Are you already in the back to school mode for lunches? To be honest I am a bit dreading it! The summer has brought a nice break from the stress of packing the “perfect” lunch.

Live So Fab looked into the five basics to help prepare a healthy lunch and snacks for school. I love the way they have broken it down to include items from every food group so that your child receives a wealth of nutrition through out the day.
The five food basics for the perfect school lunch according to Live So Fab and parents are:
  • Healthy Snack: The fruits or vegetable portion of the lunch box. My children love to have strawberries, grapes, cucumbers, carrots and celery here. Peppers are another great option.
  • The Sandwich: Now this seems to be very popular among a lot of parents but what I have found with my kids is that they become too grumpy and irritable if they don’t eat more than a sandwich at lunch (I am blaming their high metabolism on this one!). When we do sandwiches we use breaded chicken or veal on a bun. The favourite in our house is penne in a tomato sauce or fajitas.
  • Drink: My children both bring a water bottle with them but I still fill up a container of juice for them to bring as well – usually orange or apple juice.
  • Homemade treat: My eldest son’s favourite part!! He likes to bake muffins, cupcakes and cookies so we always incorporate this into his lunch!
  • Salty Snack: I have to confess I personally do not include this part but pretzels are a family favourite.

What are your basics for the perfect lunch? Do you have basics that you like to include?

Lentil Curry

I have been searching high and low for a couple of good lentil recipes. I checked out a couple of sites (including the Canadian Lentils website – what a great recipe collection they have and my other favourite site – the Gracious Pantry). With this knowledge in hand we made a curry (our family loves curry!) using the lentils I had just purchased. Here is what we did.
– 2 cups of green lentils
– 7 cups of chicken broth
– 2 cups of sliced carrots
– 3 cups of fresh spinach
– 7 garlic cloves
– 1 zucchini grated
– 1 tbsp of curry powder
– 2 tsp cinnamon (this is where my hubby wished we had cinnamon sticks!)
– 1 tsp cumin
– 2 tsp onion powder
– 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1. Combine all ingredients into one large pot. Bring to a boil and continue to boil on medium heat until the liquid has been absorbed (took roughly thirty minutes on our stove).

This prepared meals for four for dinner with lunch the next day as well as three freezer meals for during the work week.
