Free Printable Lunch Box Cards

This week I’m not even going to attempt a meal plan because it’s a crazy week. I know I should but I don’t know what this week holds. I do have some fun lunch box cards that I’m offering as a consolation.

Two of our kids are visiting from out of town. We have some fun stuff planned like a Diamond Backs game but most of the week is still up in the air. We’ve also eat out almost every meal since they got into town. Yikes!

Instead of a meal plan I’m offering two sets of fun lunch box cards that are perfect for younger kids. I’d say the target age range is probably 1st grade to 4th grade, but that is just a guess. (download info below)

Once school starts our mornings are packed. We eat breakfast, get ready, make lunches, and are out the door. I’ve found a healthy, hot breakfast that my kids can make themselves, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal Cups.

We had gotten into a cereal rut because I needed something easy and fast in the mornings. My kids will often wake up before me; I’m not one of those wake up before your kids kind of moms (I get every minute of sleep I can). That meant the kids would usually have cereal. I preferred for them to have something healthier but our busy mornings didn’t always allow it.

Then I discovered Bob’s Red Mill Oatmeal Cups. At first I was skeptical but the ingredients list won me over. The oatmeal cups vary by flavor but use real ingredients that I would typically put in homemade oatmeal like flax and chia seeds. My favorite flavor is Apple Cinnamon!

My kids are 5 and 7 and they can prepare the Oatmeal Cups all by themselves. If you are a parent of little kids you know this is life changing. They pour the water into the cup, microwave it for one minute, let it set for two minutes, then it’s ready to eat.

There are a lot of things I love about these oatmeal cups:

  • Delicious flavors
  • Healthy Ingredients
  • Easy to prepare (even my kids can do it)
  • Fast
  • Easy clean up
  • Vegan and Gluten-Free

We will still make oatmeal the old fashioned way or in my Instant Pot but these oatmeal cups are a great option, especially during those hectic first days back to school.

Bob’s Red Mill is happy to sponsor a giveaway for an assortment of oatmeal cups! One lucky winner in the continental U.S. will win a selection of oatmeal cups.

August 15, 2016 Weekly Meal Plan

What’s for dinner? I really get tired of this question but if you have a weekly meal plan it’s a lot easier to answer. Take a look at our weekly meal plan and find out what we are having for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

I’ll do my best to stretch these dinners into multiple meals so I can cook less. My latest recipe, Instant Pot Black Beans and Rice is getting some great reviews. One reader even made it in the Crock Pot for 10 hours with great results! We are having it for dinner on Monday night with plenty of leftovers for lunches!

A gluten-free, plant-based weekly meal plan the whole family will enjoy.

Weekly Meal Plan

I hope our weekly meal plan will give you some inspiration as you plan your own. Don’t forget to take your schedule into consideration. Enjoy leftovers on busy nights or have something simple like potatoes.  [Read more…]

Instant Pot Black Beans and Rice

If you’ve been here for a while you know I’m all about easy recipes. I think this Instant Pot Black Beans and Rice recipe is my new favorite. Why? Because you use a few ingredients and cook them all together and it turns out great, like magic. Instant Pot Black Beans and Rice [Read more…]

August 8, 2016 Meal Plan

My kids don’t know it yet but we have company coming this week. Our Meal Plan will be a little loosey-goosey since I don’t know what all we will have planned. The kids are in school and we are working so most of our “together” time will be in the evenings.

If you are new here, you came at a great time! We have some great giveaways coming up in the next month with some of my favorite brands! I’ll also be sharing some great back to school tips and some fun freebies! The freebies are being delivered on Saturday straight to your inbox if you are on my email list! Sign up here! Here’s a hint, it’s lunchbox related!

I tend to jump into back to school mode early for two reasons; first, I’m a planner and second, my kids have already started school. Over the next month (or two) you can expect to see lunch box ideas, easy breakfast ideas, busy morning productivity hacks, recipes and more! Back to school season is kind of like my Christmas. I love Christmas but I get way more into the back to school planning compared to Christmas planning.

This week we don’t have a lot planned. With family visiting I want to keep my options open. I have a few things in mind but I don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking.

Meal Plan Monday with a plant-based meal plan! Almost gluten-free too.
