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.

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

Mexican Pack

 

Ingredients to complement your south-of-the-border-themed dishes! We absolutely love making fresh salsas, fajitas (with or without meat!), and this Mexican hot sauce - we make something similar and add a teaspoon of oregano and double the garlic. My big kids use this sauce on everything!

Here’s some other fun recipes to try!

 

Corn, Jicama and Green Chile Salsa

 

Pico de Gallo

 

Chicken Stew with Salsa Verde

 

Cilantro 101

 

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

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 homemade stock.

 

Try this Busy Day Sausage Veggie Soup as you get back into the post-holiday swing!

Smitten Apples
Approx 100 count

Approx 38 lbs

 

These are a lovely, sweet apple – a cross between a gold, a braeburn, and a gala. An eating apple great paired with cheese or nut butters or baked in your favorite recipes!

Carrots
Approx 50 lbs

 

Shredded, roasted, steamed, peeled and dipped, juiced, pressure canned, pickled, par boiled and frozen, carrots are multi-use! Roast them for a naturally sweet treat. My kids cheer when they see that big bag – it means apple/carrotjuice is on the menu for the week!

Grab some celery and onions or onions and bell peppers and chop up a bunch for mirepoix and holy trinity to throw in the freezer for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes!

Mangoes
Approx 12 count

Approx 4 kilos

 

Mangoes are a great, fresh addition to salsas, smoothies, yogurt, granola! Make mango water, mango sorbet, or mango-mint limeade!

During the winter I’m always game for a little baking to warm up the kitchen. Here’s a Mango Coconut Banana Bread that’s sure to warm your kitchen and your tastebuds!

Strawberries
Approx 8 Lb

 

Delicious fresh, in smoothies, frozen, jammed, syruped (is that a word?); dehydrate in fruit rolls; make fruit salad and fruit pizza; smother ice cream, yogurt, cereal, and shortcake; and our favorite: strawberry-topped gluten-free crepes! A favorite dish of my kids is Greek yogurt topped with strawberries and drizzled with raw honey.
