Healthy lunch box

Packing lunch boxes can be a huge stress for parents and many of us are at loss what to make. I usually start thinking about lunches the day before but never get around to do these until the morning, when I only have about 15min to make them. 

Sandwich has been a staple school lunch for my daughter for some time as for many here in Holland.  I try to keep it healthy and done variation of the fillings; tuna, boiled egg, hummus, avocado etc.  Recently however she has gotten bored with bread and asked for alternatives (yay!). 

Bread, especially refined wheat (where that bran is removed), has little nutritional value as the processing removes fibre, minerals and vitamins.  Eating white bread does little to support your child's energy levels and mood.  Wheat can also cause digestive issues. If making a sandwich, choose  wholegrain or spelt bread.  

This morning I made really easy and simple egg muffins.

Yummy Egg Muffins (makes 6. 5min to prepare)

5 organic eggs

Splash of almond milk

Handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped

Half a red pepper, chopped

Whisk the eggs and milk together. Add the chopped vegetables and mix. Pour into muffin tray and bake in 200C for about 15-20min until golden on top.
