Join Kim, from Stuck in the Middle and me to link up this week with a look at healthy lunches! Does what you pack for lunch need an update? Link up with your go-to lunch to bring to school and see if you find a recipe or two to try!
Here's my lunch choice - which was longer than the card but is SO worth it! This is a variation from the Oh She Glows cookbook.For the noodle salad, I use:1/2 - 1 lb. of noodles, cooked, and tossed with a little olive oil
1 lb. frozen edamame, thawed (or fresh snow peas or green beans, or anything else, cut into chunks)
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 carrot, julienned
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 c. fresh cilantro or 1 tsp. dried
Make the sauce in a blender or food processor. (I use a Magic Bullet.) Mix the noodles with the veggies and toss all together with the sauce. This is a very flexible recipe; you can pretty much add what you want to this. I often add chunks of chicken or other meat that is left over from a previous night's dinner. Yum!
So c'mon and link up! Share what keeps you going (and by keeps you going I mean what you can eat in 22 minutes before your students return for the afternoon!)
Have a great rest of the week!
