I have a very special place in my heart for lunches that are quickly put together. If I don’t get breaks in my day, for myself, then I’ll pull my hair out and scream. I’m no wonder woman or super mom. :) I do have some red boots, though, so I can pretend.
I’ve become quite comfortable putting quick meals together. This easy lunch is no exception, and it’s great for kids. Here’s a post I wrote with a bunch of other Real Food Fast Food ideas.
I find, more often than not, that I don’t worry about getting a fabulous lunch put together for my family. I usually spend more attention on breakfast and dinner. I let lunch be a little more flexible, cuz I just need to. Of course, that doesn’t mean I feed junk. It means having things that are easy to grab and put on a plate without much fuss. Okay, I admit, I fussed with the almond butter a tiny bit, but sometimes I can’t help myself. Don’t expect that of me every time though!
Here I present a fast food lunch with a wonderful raw almond butter spread that I mixed up.
- Organic sliced granny smith apple
- Organic rice crackers
- Organic raw flax crackers
- Raw grass-fed cheese (I like 5-Spoke brand at Whole Foods.)
- Cardamom Almond Butter Dip (see below)
For the almond butter dip, I used the following. Just mix a bit of each, and taste as you go.
- raw almond butter
- raw honey
- sea salt
- cardamom powder
- MCT oil (extra brain power and it helps make the almond butter more dip-able)
That’s it. Easy lunch. Now, I have more time to play
