Quick Meal/Snack Ideas
Breakfast Ideas: Fresh cut bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, watermelon and/or honeydew melon with ground flax seed. Super fruit mix(strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and/or raspberries with Chia seeds. You can add plain yogurt with probiotics to any fruit and/or granola. Overnight Oatmeal is so delicious!
Here’s the recipe in case the link does not work:
1/4 cup chopped dried apple
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp chia seed
Place all ingredients into a medium sized bowl (one with a lid would be helpful), stir, cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir again. Using a total of 1/4–1/3 of the mixture and one ripe banana cut into chunks, layer ingredients into a bowl or jar and enjoy. Refrigerate the remaining overnight oat mixture and enjoy again over the next few days
Lunch: We use the previous night’s meal as leftovers or a fresh garden salad with avocado and lemon or lime for dressing. For the boys, I make homemade mac and cheese, grilled cheese, PB&J’s or quesadillas. I use everything raw, sprouted, whole wheat, etc. I always add fruits and veggies to the plate. I found that making lunch fun makes dinner a little easier.
Snacks: Sliced carrots, celery with peanut or almond butter, cucumbers, unsalted mixed nuts, raisins, fresh apple, orange, pear, dried fruit
