{Enjoy Life Foods Friday} Plentils Lunchbox Fun #GlutenFree #AllergyFriendly

I love our Enjoy Life Foods Friday posts. Seriously. 
The challenge each month of creating fun foods & recipe ideas with their products that are great for lunch & snacks is something I love to do. 

Enjoy Life is such a staple brand for any food allergy family. No questions - you know that it's going to be top 8 allergen free, gluten free, non-GMO, and contain no artificial junk

The first post we did last year was using Enjoy Life Foods Plentils. They are the "chip with benefits" made from lentils and protein packed. 

The post was so successful, they asked me use them again in this months post! So, welcome to PART II with Plentils

Celiac and the Beast Book & Shirt Giveaway!

So, let me tell you a little story... when Little Miss started her gluten free journey a few years ago, I started following and finding any gluten free blogs I could to learn more and also for ideas. 

On that journey, I discovered the amazing and hilarious Erica Dermer of Celiac and the Beast. I also had the opportunity to finally meet her in person at the GFAF Expo in 2013. 

She then ventured to Vegas, like I did, for the First Food Allergy Bloggers Conference last November where she gave me a copy of her book to read and review.

Lunch Made Easy: An Apple A Day...

Little Miss loves making SunButter & Honey Apple Sandwiches. So, I thought I'd make her an fun apple themed bento box to go with one of her favorite sammies for Monday's lunch.

School is on Spring Break, but she'll be enjoying this "apple a day" EasyLunchboxes lunch with her sitter. 

An apple shaped cookie cutter and SurfSweets Top 10 Allergen Free Gummy Worm is a simple way to add some allergy friendly fun to an otherwise plain looking sandwich:

Lunch Made Easy: What came first, the fish or the fish stick?

This has been another hectic week of busy schedules, late nights, birthday parties, me not feeling well, and Little Miss has Girls on the Run practice twice a week.

So lunches have been simple... quick... but still fun & nutritious, with little added touches thanks to our bento supplies of food picks and cutters, as well as, Lunchbox Love Notes

If you've missed our lunch pictures from this week, make sure you're following our social media outlets since if they don't get blogged, they get posted with a photo on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

Lunch Made Easy: Mini Corndog Muffins {Gluten Free & Allergy Friendly}

Mini Corndog Muffins is something Little Miss and I love making. They're great little finger food items for appetizers, party snacks, and even packed up for school lunches.

Corndog... Corn Dogs... however you spell it, the fact remains the same, they're a fun food for kids! (And let's be honest, adults too.)

I shared our gluten free & allergy friendly recipe for them about a year ago, along with a lunch post on using leftovers

They're simple, quick, easy to make. They only take 15 minutes to prep & bake! Best of all, they freeze great so you can make them ahead for lunches or meals in the future.

{Charlotte's Web} Book Character Dress-Up Day + School Lunch!

Today is a special day at school for Little Miss: It's Book Character Dress-Up Day!

This is something her school does every year and all the kids (and staff) look forward to it. 

This year, Little Miss had three choices she narrowed down and finally decided to be Fern from Charlotte's Web

Not only did we make her a fun costume/ outfit to fit the part, I had to make a Charlotte's Web themed lunch to go with it.

Lunch Made Easy: Homemade Lunchable with SunButter & Jelly #AllergyFriendly #GlutenFree

One of the best and easiest school lunch ideas are Homemade Lunchables.  

It doesn't always have to be with cheese and meat slices either. For Tuesday's lunch, I made one for Little Miss with SunButter & Jelly. That was she can spread them on her crackers all by herself and enjoy!

March means another fun challenge for our Enjoy Life Foods Friday posting!

The bars come in four yummy flavors: S'mores, Chocolate SunButter, Cherry Cobbler, and Cinnamon Roll. They're gluten free, top 8 allergen free, and verified by the Non-GMO Project.
