Lunch

I try not to feed Pickles and Noodles the same thing everyday.  However, when it’s something that they LOVE and they eat ALL of it and they beg for MORE, it’s hard to not give in to them, especially since it’s HEALTHY!  So, I try to add a variety to their daily lunch so that they don’t have the same ole peanut butter and jelly cut into triangles for Pickles, and squares for Noodles.  Today’s lunch was a small dab of peanut butter, half of a sliced apple, three small slices of mozzarella cheese, a small handful of pretzels, and three turkey slices for Noodles and three ham slices for Pickles.  They ate all of it!  And asked for seconds.  It took nothing for me to fix it other than to slice the apples and the cheese.  The girls were ecstatic and Mommy loved not having to make a big lunch.

Easy Peanut Butter Lunch Options
Peanut Butter (peanut butter jelly sandwich, dab of peanut butter in small bowl, peanut butter and maple syrup sandwich, just pick one!)Fruit (apples, oranges, bananas, or grapes are the preferred fruits here)Bread (since the girls won’t eat bread, crackers or pretzels are the preferred food)Cheese (mozzarella or cheddar here)

Some of you might realize where are the veggies?  Well, the girls are fine with veggies, as long as they are cooked.  Baby carrots on the side end up chewed up and spit out on the carpet.  Peppers are left behind.  Onions…well, no thanks.  Tomatoes are often a good one to do though Pickles requires at least six to make her meal complete.  Celery is not well received, nor is eggplant, radishes, cabbage, or lettuce, unless it has salad dressing and cheese on it.  However, make them a bowl of vegetable soup, and they will eat til the cows come home.  Now if we just had cows.
