Make a Better Lunch
Are you and the kids tired of the same old thing for lunch every day? Here are 3 easy ways to make a better lunch for everyone.
If you’re looking for ways to make a better tasting – and better-for-you – lunch, then you’re in the right place. I poked around Culinary and found these 3 recipes that should make lunch a much more interesting meal.
PB & Fruity Says “Let Us Rap” - This wrap was actually created by a kid, and won Jif’s Creative Kids in the Kitchen contest. You can make the filling the night before, then wrap it all up in the morning.
1/2 cup chopped cooked chicken breast
3 tablespoons chopped Fuji apple
2 tablespoons chopped black or red grapes
2 tablespoons Jif Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 tablespoon lite mayonnaise
2 teaspoons honey
Chop chicken meat and fruit, mix in bowl. Mix in peanut butter, mayo and honey.
Spoon onto open lettuce leaf, roll and serve.
String Cheese “Slaw” – Here’s a tasty way to enjoy more veggies.
6 Organic Valley Stringles String Cheese
1 1/2 cups carrot, cut into matchsticks, or shredded
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped (or parsley)
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
black pepper, freshly ground
Pull threads of cheese off each string cheese stick (not too thin). Toss with carrots, cilantro or parsley, lemon juice and olive oil. Add pepper to taste.
Serve immediately, or chill the salad in the refrigerator, tossing occasionally, 1/2 to 1 hour. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
Watermelon Dippers – Good watermelon doesn’t need much help, but this is a fun way to serve it.
8 ounces sour cream
4 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Watermelon sticks or small wedges
Blend together sour cream, sugar and vanilla in a small serving bowl. Use as a dip for watermelon.
So what have you done to make a better lunch?
