Lunch 11-21-13

If you packed this lunch with conventional ingredients from a standard grocery store, there could be A LOT of sugar and carbs in it, as well as rancid, hydrogenated vegetable oils and artificial colors. Some of the most common kid’s lunch items are the worst offenders. Conventional peanut butter is full of sugar and hydrogenated oil, yogurt is artificially colored and some have as much sugar as a soft drink as well as extra artificial sweeteners. A muffin made with refined wheat flour is little better than giving your child a cupcake.

But this homemade lunch has very little sugar, just a touch of maple syrup in the homemade peanut butter and the coconut flour muffin and none in the yogurt. The muffin is made with coconut flour, which is full of fiber and low in carbohydrates and is also delicious! The peanut butter is made with nourishing coconut oil instead of with hydrogenated fake food, and the nuts are soaked and dehydrated for optimal absorbtion of nutrients.

  • The recipe for the coconut flour muffin is here
  • The yogurt is a full-fat organic yogurt with no carageenan or other added ingredients. I added blueberries and cinnamon. Darling Baby has never had sweetened yogurt and likes his yogurt this way.
  • I made the peanut butter for the “ants on a log” (make sure to cut your raisins in half for children under two and watch them carefully!) but if you want an option to purchase, you can find high quality nut butters here. There is also a nut-free option.
