Lunch Made Easy: St. Patrick's Day Ideas!

St. Patrick's Day is always a fun time of year around our house! 1)  The 15th is my folks anniversary, 2) the 16th is my birthday, and 3) the 17th is a fun day to celebrate the fact we are Irish! You don't get a name like Keeley McGuire, otherwise - to be exact... I'm actually half Irish, half Scottish. 

Growing up, my grandfather spent many years traveling to Ireland studying our ancestry and I'm so lucky I had to opportunity to visit the beautiful homeland back in 2009 with some coworkers.

Now, I make sure to celebrate the day and our family heritage with Little Miss who proudly call this "our day". That means lots of fun lunches and snacks to go with. Erin go Bragh!

Ninja Coffee Bar {at Home} + Dairy Free Mocha Recipe

Ninja provided me with their new Coffee Bar system for my honest review:

I am a coffee addict. 

When I'm traveling for work or even at home, I could drink coffee all day long. The fella thinks I'm crazy, but even in the evenings, I find a warm cup relaxing. In fact, I'm sipping on a cup right now.

Buying "fancy coffees" away from home can get expensive, so I'm thankful for delicious homemade recipes to create them myself like my Homemade Dairy Free Mocha Coffee recipe (below)!

And thanks to the new Ninja Coffee Bar System, I have the best coffeehouse in town, right on my counter!

Cybele's Free-To-Eat Cookie Giveaway!

Years ago, when Little Miss was first diagnosed with food allergies, there were not all the resources we have today. Looking online, I'd find little information that was reliable and what this mother needed in order to feed her baby and feel secure.

One person I did come across during that research, was Cybele Pascal. Her books were some of my first comforts during a new scary time of our life.

Fast forward, now Cybele is sharing her experiences through baking and food allergy motherhood in her line of delicious Free-To-Eat Cookies

We've shared about these gems before, but I don't mind taking some time to do it again... and while we're at it GIVE SOME AWAY to FIVE lucky people!

Nut Free {No Bake} SunButter Energy Bites

There are a number of recipes I've made so frequently over the years that I no longer measure them. Just get out the bowl and start eyeballing the ingredients needed. 

Our Allergy Friendly {No Bake} SunButter Energy Ball Bites are one of those recipes.

Each time I share about them or pack them in a lunch I post on Facebook or Instagram, I get messages or comments asking for the recipe. And each time I tell myself, "Next time I'll measure!" ... but I never do. 

WELL, I FINALLY DID! While Snapchatting last night about dinner and knowing I needed to make more of these bites, I made sure to measure so I could *finally* share them here. 

They're gluten free and top 8 allergen free (that means they're nut free and great for school snacks)!

Lunch Made Easy: Thanksgiving Bento for My Little Turkey

Life has been so incredibly busy (and great) lately that Thanksgiving completely snuck up on me!

While at the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference the weekend before last (#FABlogCon), I was talking to Allison of Allie's GF Goodies and she made mention of needing to get back right after the conference to begin all her Thanksgiving baking. I must have given her a funny look, because she then went on and said "uh yeah, Thanksgiving is a week and half away!" *begins fanning self* How did that happen? Wasn't it *just* Halloween?? Oy.

Anyways, since I got back it's been work work work and in my spare time planning for the big Turkey day for my little family. However, I couldn't let the year go by without some Thanksgiving lunch box fun!

20+ Easy Lunch Ideas for Work or School

When your child has food allergies and/or dietary restrictions, you pack lunch. Daily. It's just part of the normal routine. 

Some days, we get creative and make (what I call) "silly sandwiches" or sometimes the lunches are completely sandwich free. They don't have to be complicated or artistic, but it is fun to mix it up from the usual.

Lately, life has been busy. I've been traveling a lot for work and due to my health issues I require a lot more sleep than I use to. That's why having an arsenal of easy and quick fix lunch ideas are a necessity. I still want my daughter to be excited for her school lunches, and not feel left out, but keep my sanity intact. I'm sure many of you feel the exact same way!

Here are 20+ inspiring ideas for work or school lunch:

#UdisGlutenFree Banana Berry Crunch Muffin Recipe

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Udi's Gluten Free. The opinions and text are all mine.

I love baking muffins!
They're great for grab & go breakfasts or throwing in the lunch box for a nice change up.

One of my favorite combinations is banana & blueberries. I admit that before I stopped eating gluten, I would regularly get my Starbucks on my drive to work + a blueberry muffin. So expensive and so unhealthy... but they were so delicious! 

So making muffin recipes of my own now, that are gluten free & allergy friendly, are something I love to create and do! And Little Miss loves to help.

Udi's Perfect Gluten Free Pizza Party Night!

A few weeks ago, I shared about a "pizza party night" Little Miss, the fella, and I were having on our Instagram page

Udi's has partnered with Pizza Hut to offer Gluten Free pizza! And they *finally* started selling it at my local Pizza Hut store. (YAY!) Udi's graciously sent us a gift card to Pizza Hut so we can give it a try, along with some other goodies, to make the Perfect Gluten Free Pizza Party Night!
