Lunchbox Pack

 

Have kids packing lunches or like having extra “finger food”? This pack is for you! Fill those tummies with something delicious and nutritious if you want those brains to fill up with reading, writing and arithmetic. We all think better with a full tummy and without artificial refined ingredients. So many kids “problem” classroom behaviors iron out when they start eating a clean diet.

 

Hoping for Tangerines, Bananas, Baby Carrots, English Cucumber, Apple Granny Smith, Oranges, Mini Sweet Peppers, and Tangelos.

Soup Pack

 

We love soup weather! You can use this as the basis for stew as well. The possibilities are endless!

 

Imagine Zuppa Toscana (substitute coconut milk to make it dairy-free, add canneloni or navy beans to make it vegetarian); chicken or beef stew, hearty vegetable soup, French onion soup, tomato soup, and stock!

 

Hoping for Yukon Potatoes, Leeks, Broccoli, Parsley, Celery, Carrots, Yellow Onions, Roma Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Fresh Thyme, and Fresh Garlic.

Thai Pack

 

One of my favorite packs for homemade curries and stirfrys! Lemongrass holds nicely in the freezer. Try some tantalizing curry or a sweet, hot and cool cucumber salad. Chicken Satay (or Tofu – be sure to press it!) is easy and delicious! Check out these websites for inspiration: East Thai Recipes and Thai Table!

 

Include the veggies in the Salad Pack and make this delightful Chopped Thai Salad with Sesame Garlic Dressing!

 

Hoping for Lemongrass, Mushrooms, White Potatoes, Ginger, Eggplant, Green Bell Pepper, Carrot, Cilantro, Green Onions, Lime, and Dried Chiles.

Gala Apples

Approx 125 count

Approx 38 Lb

 

These are dense, juicy, very sweet and low acid with a hint of citrus flavor. We love homemade applesauce!  Of course you could always do dried apples, regular apples sauce, fruit rolls, apple pie filling or apple butter! Plenty of options to make some healthy and delicious snacks and treats!

 

Fresh Sugar-Free Applesauce is easy and delicious! In a stovetop or electric pressure cooker, put in:

-Apples (at least 10, up to enough to fill your pot to the Max line
-1/2 cup water
-Optional: Cinnamon to taste (we do about a Tblsp)
-Optional: Vanilla (we do about a tsp)

 

Peel and core your apples, fill pot to Max line (I’ve thrown in a couple of pears, too), pressure for 10 minutes, release the pressure if you’re in a hurry, natural release if you’re not, and blend – I like my stick/immersion blender as it easily allows me to keep some chunkiness. Adjust seasoning as desired – more cinnamon, splash of vanilla, some sweet spice blend, whatever. Throw in your refrigerator and enjoy all week!

Any kind or mix of apples will do, though using only Granny Smiths will be tart. I tend to do a max of four Granny Smith per full pot of apples for sauce.

Asparagus

Approx 11 Lbs

 

Grilled, roast, steam, and sautee! A little olive oil and garlic to roast, and finish with red pepper flake is our staple. Mix it up with a spritz of soy sauce or coconut aminos! If there are leftovers (which there never are), asparagus makes a lovely salad topper.

Asparagus is one of those things that lets me know spring is on the way. We just can’t get enough of asparagus as we defrost out of winter. Have you tried it pickled? So many amazing ways to eat it.

Fresh Basil

Approx 1 Lb

 

Fresh basil means homemade pesto in this house!

Combine with the tomato  add-on for caprese salad or homemade tomato sauce, enjoy with eggs and bruchetta, too!

This is a much-used pesto recipe here. We omit the cheese for our dairy-free family members, and our dairy eaters prefer pecorino to parm to top pesto.

Green Cabbage
Approx 45 Lb

 

Make sauerkraut, kimchi (my favorite!), dehydrate, make cabbage rolls, cabbagesoup, and shred or quarter then blanche and freeze!

Pineapple
Approx 6 count

 

Delicious sliced fresh and in smoothies, add to jams, and bottle chunks! Freezes beautifully for future smoothies or later processing. We make smoothie kits with our favorite fruit and veggie combos for dump, blend, and run mornings! Juice some up with oranges or mango for a super special and delicious breakfast beverage. Have you tried dehydrated pineapple? So easy and delicious! A perfect summer-y, sweet, and healthy snack at home or on the go. Grill them outside or indoors on a grill pan for a delicous dessert served alone or topping ice cream and frozen yogurt.

My kids love Virgin Pina Coladas as a special treat, and they’re pros at making them – even my 8yo! Into the blender goes chunks of pineapple, coconut milk, and just a squeeze of lime. Add ice to make it a frozen dessert – No sugar or dairy required!

Yukon Gold Potatoes
Approx 50 Lbs

 

Roast, smash, boil, mash, saute, bake, broil! My kids adore potatoes! To cheat the evening craziness, par-roast or par-bake, cool, and then freeze for super fast supper sides!

Minneola Tangeloes
Approx 125 count

 

Sweet and delicious tangelos! A great addition to any lunchbox. These are so flavorful. High sugar content, so don’t leave them sitting! They make a lovely juice to kick off your morning.
