Thanksgiving Lunch

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is Apple Pie. I just cannot resist a warm slice of apple pie with freshly whipped cream - no matter how much other food I already had :) 

And since my kids share my love of pie, today's lunch features:
  • an apple and peanut butter "Apple Pie" sandwich
  • a "pumpkin" tangerine and
  • a fall themed side of celery, carrots, mini pepper and raspberries stuffed with roasted almonds

This Literary Lunch is featured as the Special Holiday Edition of Literary Lunches over at The Little Crooked Cottage today. It was inspired by Linda Ashman's new picture book, Over the River and Through the Wood. A more formal Literary Lunch and book review will be published soon as well.

MySuperFoods REVIEW {and GIVEAWAY!}

MySuperFoodsCompany Review -

We love healthy snacks - really who doesn't? - and my kids were thrilled to try both the MySuperFoods cookies and snacks after MySuperFoods sent us a fun review package. Scroll to the end of the post to win some snacks and cookies as well!

MySuperFoodsCompany Review -

I love that MySuperfoods snacks are soft and yummy yet GMO free, made in a nut-free facility, has no additives, no preservatives and contains 10g of whole grains. Win for Mom and win for the kids!
For this lunch I served yogurt with a cinnamon apple stencil, apple raisin MySuperSnacks granola bites and three mini nut butter and jelly sandwiches.

I also used the Honey Heroes cookies in our recent Literary Lunch. They made fabulous spectators for my LITTLE RED GLIDING HOOD lunch (click the picture to find out more).

MySuperFoodsCompany Review -

I already had to re-buy the Honey Heroes because my kids love them for school snack as well. Here I packed some MySuperCookies with a few grapes.

MySuperFoodsCompany Review -

I am always looking for healthy options for snack since all of my four children need snack and it gets boring fast because I tend to always pack the same few things. My kids were big fans of the Chocolate Chip Granola Bites and I will be buying more of these as well.

MySuperFoodsCompany Review -

Here is a summary of what we thought:

  • GMO free
  • nut free
  • artificial anything free
  • full of whole grain
  • yummy (your kids will love these)
Things to consider:
  • Even though the cookies are available in a bigger package, the MySuperSnacks Granola bites are only available as individual packs. Since I try to avoid unnecessary packaging I wish you could buy them with less packaging BUT they are great for on the go and for brown bag lunches!
MySuperFoods has agreed to send one of you a variety pack of their snacks and cookies!

This week in pictures: Nov 1 - Nov 6 2015

If you missed the lunchbox ideas I shared on social media this week, you cancatch up here on the blog. I shared some new and some old lunches and if you want to read more, simply click the picture to see the whole post.

A trip to Trader Joe's and a fun IKEA cookie cutter transformed this lunch into a fun treat.

My daughter loves Pandas and requested a Panda themed lunch. So cute, right?

Love peanut butter (or really any nut butter?) - then this lunch is for you!

We were stuck in a lunch rut, so I used some refridgerated pretzel dough to make lunch fun again.

My daughter made this snack herself in our nw divided plates. I helped with the tangerine ;)

Even though I seem to have given away almost all my cookie cutters, I found this one hiding in the utensil drawer and used it to make this apple themed snack plate.
