"Um, Mom? I'm pretty sure this doesn't actually count as real lunch food."
I struggle with lunch. I don't like preparing big fancy lunches, and when you're trying to serve Real Food and don't happen to have leftovers, lunch can be a struggle. It's primarily just the girls and I at home for lunch, and we need things that are quick and easy, but healthy too.
Today's lunch: diced apples and bananas, sections of clementines, chopped "kwammerlope" and raisins, topped with a "dressing" made of plain yogurt blended with honey and all mixed up. The result? They loved it, ate it all, and asked for seconds.
Some other common lunches at our house:
*PB&J (homemade bread and jam, sometimes homemade cashew butter)
*Homemade cheese and veggie sandwiches
*Homemade noodles tossed with olive oil and chopped tomatoes
*Baked or mashed potatoes with homemade "ranch" dressing
*Quesadillas and homemade salsa
*Whatever random things Mommy can find and toss together to make it look like lunch
What do you serve for lunch?
