Parents often ask me what I feed my kids. They're very interested in what's for dinner at our house, and they really want to know what I put in lunch boxes. Most often, I make larger portions of dinner so that I have enough left-overs to put in my kids' Thermos the next day. Other days, I put together snack-type lunch boxes. In this case, I made my lunch from the chopped up stuff I put in lunch boxes that morning.
– Whole wheat spinach
– Turkey breast,
– Muenster cheese tortilla triangles
– Carrot and red pepper sticks with chickpea hummus
– Apple slices * a few drops of lemon juice will prevent apple slices from browning
– Mandarin orange **
**Did you know that you need to eat vitamin C along with spinach in order to better absorb the iron?
To the chopped carrots, red peppers, apples, and spinach, I added left-over brown rice and quinoa, walnuts, and olive oil for my lunch salad later that day.
