[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]I couldn’t help but think of Billy Madison on Sunday night, while whipping up lunches for the week.
Billy Madison: Where’s my snack paaaack?
Juanita: You got a banana, you don’t need no snack pack.
I don’t care what Juanita says. I need both a banana and a snack pack to get me through the day. I like variety. And you know what they say: Good things come in small (plastic, likely hazardous) packages.
I’ve been following my RD’s recommendations to ensure I get enough protein. Knowing now that lactose isn’t an issue, I’ve been back on the
sauce low fat cottage cheese lately. Though it looks rather terrifying in the photo above, cottage cheese can be a great source of protein for vegetarians. I like to add a little ground pepper to spice it up a bit. In addition to a bigger green salad, I packed up a few miniature caprese salads featuring teeny, tiny bocconcini, heirloom cherry tomatoes, and a heaping amount of fresh basil. Also in my snack pack to start the week: fresh raspberries and carrots with hummus.
Check out my snack pack stack. Or whatever. Kids shouldn’t be the only ones to have fun at lunch time.
