Egg salad is a classic lunch staple. You can use it in sandwiches, wraps, or even as a dip for crackers or veggies! But many store-bought (or even homemade) egg salads use mayonnaise, which can contain raw eggs. That can be a problem! There’s also a ton of other nasty ingredients in mayonnaise that we try to avoid most of the time.

This Mayo-Free Egg Salad is the solution! It has the same classic taste of traditional egg salad without the raw eggs. You can make a big batch at the beginning of the week for easy lunch packing.

Looking for a way to make zucchini a little more fun?  These Zucchini Parmesan Waffles are a cheesy and delicious way to add a few more veggies to our meals.

these parmesan zucchini waffles are perfect for dinner or even for a healthy school lunch!

When it comes to getting kids to be adventurous eaters, you sometimes need to think outside the box.  While waffles may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you are looking for new ways to serve zucchini, we think it couldn’t make more sense.  By taking something fun and easy, like waffles, and adding familiar flavors, such as parmesan and Italian seasoning, the zucchini seems a little less intimidating.

The batter for these waffles comes together easily, but you will need to plan ahead to let the zucchini drain for 30 minutes before using.  This is an important step, as it eliminates excess water that may cause your waffles to be soggy, or not hold together. Just watch this quick video to see how easy they are to make.

Pack these waffles in your child’s lunch box, or serve as a side at dinner.  Leftovers can be stored in the freezer to be used at another time.

  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and 1/4 cup of the grated Parmesan.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the flour with Italian seasoning.

  10. Close the lid and cook until lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes.Serve warm and sprinkle waffles with remaining parmesan cheese.

Notes

To make these gluten-free, substitute the all purpose flour with all-purpose gluten-free flour 1:1. We tested it with Cup4Cup, King Arthur Flour AP GF flour, Pamela’s blend and Nanamaste. They all worked well.

The hard part, is getting kids to eat their leafy greens without turning up their noses.  These Spinach and Bacon Mini Quiches are sure to get them just as excited about eating their greens as they are about eating bacon.

So, now you might be wondering, where do I begin?  All it takes is a change in approach.  It can be as simple as changing the way we talk about veggies and leafy greens, or even how we use them in a recipe.  For these mini quiches, the spinach magically becomes confetti, adding a fun splash of color to each bite.  It doesn’t take much, but every little bit counts.

Check out how easy these mini quiches are to make! This is one recipe kids can also help make!
