Here and there

Quick kid lunches

It has been awhile, or ”a hot minute” as the youths say- actually I don’t know if they say that any more or not. I’m guessing not, since my ”hip” vernacular continues to embarrass my younger siblings. Thankfully my own kids aren’t too cool for me yet, but I know my days are numbered. While I’m not yet worthy of full on eye rolls, my kids are keeping me quite busy between school and all their activities giving me the sense that time is just moving faster and faster. Throw in the holiday season and boom, I’m too exhausted to blog. We’ve been having quite the adventures with 4H, American Heritage Girls, and Trail Life. Although we homeschool, we’ve gotten experience “fundraising season” and let me tell ya- it’s not for the faint of heart! I am grateful for the experience. We can all use help during these busy and stressful times so I thought I’d share a quick look at lunches for on the go again. Our diet (I don’t like that word, it sounds like a lifestyle choice born from vanity but alas, it is the most commonly accepted term) has catered more towards the Autoimmune Protocol again due to several health issues in the the family. However I am transitioning the kids slowly for all our sakes. Here is a lunch we had today.

Caidoc- Homemade grass fed dragon fruit gummies, lightly steam carrot sticks, almond flour crackers, soaked and dried pecans, a lollipop from one of my favorite candy sources, and almond flour tortilla with ham.
Azèlie- almond flour tortilla with ham, almond flour crackers, the same pecans, carrots, and gummies as C, but with a mandarin and a dark chocolate.
Cosima- carrots, almond flour tortillas with ham, a Babybel cheese, gummies, almond flour crackers, and a dark Unreal chocolate like A.

These are so easy to whip up from things that keep well in the fridge for several weeks and have no over load of PUFAS and no grains. It feels so much better to be prepared for our adventures. It’s a big plus that I can delegate some food prep to the kids too! It sets us all up to win. I hope this post helps give you some inspiration for a quick healthy lunch for these busy fall days.

While I hope to get back to filling you all in soon, that might not be until our Christmas letter. In the meantime, we will be busy with all our Advent activities which you can read a bit about here. We’ve since added more traditions and of course the kids getting older means more obligations, but at all just adds to this crazy wonderful life that I am so grateful for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
