Lunch Box #2 {Healthy Lunch Box for the Whole Family}

Healthy Lunch Box for the Whole Family @ AVirtuousWoman.org

This week’s lunch box is super simple again. I used my Easy Lunch Boxes to make this easy lunch for my whole family to eat while we hung out all day at the ice rink.

Easy Lunch Box

Even if you have a picky eater, this meal will surely please. My children are not picky and love healthy food, but I’ve found that even picky eaters are happy to eat their veggies if there is some yummy ranch dressing to dip it in.

I packed the sandwich on top of a fun, brightly colored napkin which just sort of made me happy. I loved the fun pop of color.

What I Packed

  • Sandwich with Deli Slice and Cheese
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Fresh Strawberries and Blueberries
  • Grape Tomatoes, Carrot Sticks, and aw Broccoli
  • Ranch Dressing in a Salad Dressing Container
  • Organic Green Tea from Sweet Leaf

For the sandwich I used one of our favorite vegetarian deli slices, with cheddar cheese and mayo on sliced Italian bread. Everything else was raw so this was a really simple, Easy Lunch Box to put together. However, the colors are so vibrant, you just want to dig in!

You can purchase your own set of Easy Lunch Boxes and Salad Dressing Cups at Amazon.com. I’ve been using ours for a year now and still love them – and they still look brand new!

Vegetarian Buffalo "Wings" @ AVirtuousWoman.org

This is one of those recipes where one day I was sitting around thinking how great it would be if I could come up with a way to create a vegetarian Buffalo Wings. I love spicy food and my kids love this recipe too. This recipe hit the spot!

This easy recipe is simple enough to throw together any time you are craving a spicy game day snack, appetizer, or entrée for your meal.

Vegetarian Buffalo “Wings”

I usually double or triple this recipe depending on who all I’m feeding.

  • 1 can Worthington Vegetarian Skallops, drained
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Tabsco sauce or Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • oil for frying
  • blue cheese dessing
  • celery stick {optional}
  • carrot sticks {optional}

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Heat skillet over medium heat and add a couple tablespoons of oil to the skillet. Coat the Skallops in flour and drop into skillet. Cook until browned on all sides. As each piece is browned, place into a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together hot sauce, melted butter, and honey. Once all of the Skallops are browned and in baking dish, pour sauce mixture over Skallops and toss to coat.

Bake for 30 minutes or until sauce is thick and bubbly. Serve with your favorite blue cheese dressing, celery, and carrot sticks if desired.

Enjoy!

Note: To make these less spicy you could replace part {say a tablespoon} of the hot sauce with tomato sauce. Or to taste.
