Kid’s lunch ideas

The kids have been back to school for a while now and they are getting tired of the same old thing for lunch.  They normally take sandwiches or pack something like Chef Boyardee.  Time to change it up a bit.  Each week I’ll be posting a new idea for lunches that should be healthier and cheaper than the typical school lunch.

We tried to go meatless again this week only the planned lunch was a flop.  I thought Sushi would be a nice change.  We found a recipe, bought all the stuff and made up 10 full roles.   Joseph was the only one that really enjoyed them. We probably won’t be making these again, but it was good to try something new and different.

Anyone have any yummy lunch ideas?

Kid’s lunch ideas

The kids have been back to school for a while now and they are getting tired of the same old thing for lunch.  They normally take sandwiches or pack something like Chef Boyardee.  Time to change it up a bit.  Each week I’ll be posting a new idea for lunches that should be healthier and cheaper than the typical school lunch.

This week we are going meatless!  On the menu is hummus, tortilla chips, banana or apple, Clif Bar and water. Doesn’t that sound yummy?

I have made hummus home-made and it is quite easy, however I bought the single serve Sabra brand for convenience this time.

Anyone have any yummy lunch ideas?

I have to admit I’m afraid to cook tofu.  I’ve never been very fond of it….but I really don’t know how to use it correctly either.  I have a son who is a vegetarian and I would like to learn how to use tofu to cook him some more interesting meals.  When I saw Tofu U from Nasoya, I thought this is the perfect challenge for me.  When you sign up, you are given coupons for $1 off any Nasoya Tofu.  Each week they will email you additional coupons. The challenge is to create 4 meals at home and they will give you  an official Nasoya Tofu U t-shirt or Nasoya gym shorts. The Tofu U website is full of how to videos and recipes.  I think this will be a fun project for me and the kids.

I already signed up and got my coupons.  Now…what should I cook first?  I’ll post updates weekly.  Please share your favorite recipes or let me know if you are joining too!
