With school back in session, we are already scrambling to find delicious lunch ideas. My kids are not a fan of basic sandwiches so I have to get a bit creative. If you have not discovered the magic of jackfruit yet, this tropical fruit is a great substitute for pulled pork in recipes. I love it in school lunches because you don’t have to worry about lunch meat not being refrigerated. This BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich with King’s Hawaiian Bread is the perfect option for school lunch or an easy weeknight dinner and it is a huge hit with kids.
I’m all for finding quick solutions to make healthy eating easier. This recipe for Zoodles with Spinach Pesto and Veggies is made using the Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™ and the process could not have been easier. A recipe that would have, otherwise, been pretty complicated, took less than 15 minutes to make and was an absolutely delicious lunch.
I need all the quick and healthy meal ideas I can get and these Zoodles with Spinach Pesto and Veggies definitely hit the spot. Even my kids loved this. They were so amused that the “noodles” were made with veggies that they didn’t even notice that the entire meal was made with vegetables.
This time of year life feels so busy. As much as I would love things to slow down a bit, part of me really enjoys life being so full . . . even if it gets a bit crazy at times. The one thing that I really seem to drop the ball on when I’m super busy like this, though, is dinnertime. It’s the last thing on my mind and when dinnertime comes around, no one (including me) is happy that I didn’t plan ahead. This Walnut Kale Pesto over No Yolks Egg Noodles tastes amazing, is packed with great nutrition, and can even be partially made ahead of time so dinner is quick and easy.
