Here are a couple of easy and tasty School Lunches which I gave my daughter this week. Both lunches are Gluten and Dairy Free.
Firstly a salad with chopped Lettuce, sliced Radish, sliced Red Pepper, grated Carrot and left over Grilled Salmon and Chilli and Coriander Prawns from last nights dinner.
In a separate little pot I put some Balsamic and Olive Oil Dressing so she could add it at lunch time and the salad would not go soggy.
Together with a flask of my Roasted Carrot and Coriander Soup, this lunch is warming and full of goodness.
I always add lots of color to my salads, as we try to “Eat the Rainbow”. This means we get lots of different nutrients into us as each different colored vegetable has its own particular benefits.
I love using up leftovers from last nights dinners to make lunch the next day. It saves a lot of time and energy.
This second lunch was Vegetarian/Vegan pasta which could either be served hot or cold.
This is simply Gluten Free pasta cooked and then coated in Red Pesto and with some Sun Dried Tomatoes added.
Tomatoes are an excellent source of Vitamins C, A and E. They are also an excellent source of the phytonutrient Lycopene which is a potent antioxidant.
This Super Red Pesto by Veggie Earth is very tasty and excellent if you need to be Gluten or Dairy Free. This is what I used for this lunch box Pasta.
