NATIONAL PACK YOUR LUNCH DAY

 

Did you know that March 10th is National Pack your Lunch Day? On this day we are actually cultivating healthy habits, by encouraging everyone to make their own lunch. Prepping your lunch, not only saves you money, it is a healthier option. You can control what goes into your lunch, use fresh and organic ingredients and use portion control. Preparing your lunch does not have to take hours to prepare and it does not have to be difficult.

National Pack your Lunch Day is also celebrated by kids. For kids it is important that we pack nutrient dense foods and skip sugary treats. As we do not want them to be sluggish after lunch. With this recipe you cook once and can eat three times, and it can be used for both adults and kids lunch and/or dinner.

Here is an easy recipe that can be used for both kids and adults.

Am I the only one obsessed with zucchini? We use low carb zucchini to replace pastas, bake cakes and breads, for salads, to make soups, sauteed, you name it we’ve replaced it with zucchini. We do not have a preference, we eat it cooked, baked, sauteed, fried and even raw. If you have not have replaced a starchy pasta with zucchini you are missing out on a great thing! Zoodles are the next best thing to coffee!

RAW KEY LIME PROTEIN CUP CAKE PIES

 

We are so excited about this Raw Key Lime Pie Protein Cup Cake Pie Recipe!! Ever since we visited Key West last year and had a slice of Key Lime Pie we knew we had to recreate a healthier version of this creamy and delicious dessert! As we know the original version of the Key Lime Pie is so rich and sweet but also loaded with unwanted calories and high in sugar. Our recreated version has added protein and uses a sugar free syrup as a sweetener. The sweetener can easily be exchanged for coconut sugar or Stevia if desired. This raw key lime pie is a no bake recipe and it is a great guilt free dessert!
