Healthy Recipe

With a new school year starting again, it's time to get out the recipe box and add more healthy lunch ideas. If you are introducing new recipes for school lunches this year, start by recruiting your kids to help you in the kitchen. By giving your children a chance to get used to packed lunches now, and by letting them create some of their own meals, you may very well hear your children asking for more healthy foods and less junk.

Dr. Hull's Healthy Texas Roll-Up
A Hullistic Network Original

1 whole wheat tortilla
1/2 cup organic, unsweetened applesauce* or grated apples
2 Tbs raw cashew butter, organic peanut butter, or almond butter
Raw honey( local if possible) or pure agave nectar or Sucanat to taste

In a small bowl, combine two tablespoons nut butter with agave nectar, honey or Sucanat (what is sucanat?). Mix thoroughly. Slightly warm a tortilla to help in spreading the nut butter and in the final rolling. Spread the nut butter from the middle of the tortilla outward towards one edge. Add applesauce or grated apple. Roll the tortilla like a burrito, closing the bottom edge of the tortilla. Slice into rounds or serve as one roll-up.

*This recipe works best with homemade applesauce because you can make it thicker than packaged versions, and it won't leak as readily.

Variations: Consider using thinly sliced pears or pear sauce, grated carrots and raisins.

Dr. Hull's Veggie Pita
A Hullistic Network Original

Pita bread is a great way to make this sandwich because pita bread holds all the goodies in a nice pocket, making it easier for "smaller" hands to manage.

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 avocado, sliced or mashed
1/4 - 1/2 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 tomato, thinly sliced
1 slice Provolone cheese, cut in half
Lemon Basil Mayonnaise**
1 whole wheat pita
Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, chard, romaine lettuce

Cut round pita in half and open. Wrap in a paper towel and place in microwave (if applicable) for 10-15 seconds. Remove from microwave and open the pita slightly. Set the cut side of the pita on the counter to cool, and this will shape the bread with an open-mouth so not to tear or break when stuffing. Prepare veggies. Spread Lemon Basil Mayonnaise on inside of each 1/2 of the pita. Add veggies and serve.

Variations: Add your child's favorite lunch meat (organic and free of nitrates, of course). Use a tortilla instead of pita. Add pickles, sprouts, or any of your child's favorite veggies. Melt cheese inside a slightly warmed pita or tortilla.

Makes 2 Veggie Pitas

Lemon Basil Mayonnaise**
2 Tbs real mayonnaise
Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon, or to taste
1 tsp dried basil, or 2 teaspoons freshly chopped basil

Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
