Allergy-Friendly Lunchbox Love
Welcome to our very first Link Party! As you may know, at our house we're avoiding a wide range of allergens, including gluten, dairy, egg, corn, soy, molds, and more. I've thrown myself into learning to cook a whole new way, with varying degrees of success (see Mush Puppies!). Dinners seem to be turning out pretty well, and I'm SuperMom when it comes to desserts, but lunchboxes continue to be a struggle. I need some new ideas!
With that in mind, I decided to launch a new link party featuring allergy-friendly lunchbox ideas. I know there are lots of creative moms out there who pack hundreds of lunches for their allergic kiddos, plus lots and lots of allergic people who pack lunches for themselves! I'm so looking forward to seeing what you've been making each week. Please come back and visit every Friday!
So for our very first Allergy-Friendly Lunchbox Love Link Party, I'll start off with the lunch I made this morning for son #3, the picky eater. Today he'll be enjoying gluten-free, casein-free salami (rolled up on our cute little vintage sword picks), rice cakes with SunButter and honey, mixed berries, and a chocolate zucchini muffin (recipe posted yesterday). I love our little bento boxes (from Laptop Lunches)... the little compartments make everything look cuter!
What did you pack for lunch this week? Your submission can be a photo of your lunchbox, or a link to a particular recipe that's lunchbox friendly. Your foods don't have to be free of ALL potential allergens, just whichever ones you're avoiding.
