Ham and white beans, frozen peas, broccoli with hummus.
Pot roast and carrots from the crock pot, and grapes.
Crock pot chicken, shredded, refried beans, frozen strawberries.
Tried a new scrambled egg recipe: added a little bit of salsa. She didn't seem too impressed. Sliced apples, sugar snap peas.
Chicken sausage (tried a new brand. She didn't like it much), mixed fruit, 15 bean soup (cooked as soup then drained.)
SCD Chicken fingers (recipe here; I left out the cheese. These were really good.), carrot sticks, frozen peaches
Hamburger with pizza sauce, black beans, frozen peaches.
SCD Chili, baked squash with honey, stir-fry veggies. I don't think she liked any of these. :) But I'm sharing in hopes that your kids love chili and would be willing to try it.
These are photos of the lunches I send for 2-year-old daughter Rylie each day. I try to send a meat, a fruit, and a vegetable, but some mornings I run out of time and have to improvise. :) Since my daughter has many food allergies and a feeding disorder (difficulty chewing crunchy food), I'm even further limited in what I can put in her meals. Often I include two things I know she likes and one that she has never tried.
Since she's in daycare her teachers can warm up her food for her each day. I send paper plates for that purpose so they don't use plastic or Styrofoam.
I use frozen or fresh fruits and veggies because canned nearly always have added sugar.
How I make the pot roast:
2 lbs stew meat
1 jar salsa (I use fresh salsa)
salt, pepper, garlic, onion, parsley
1/2 cup of beef broth or veggie broth:
I use what I need from the container then freeze the rest in ziploc bags in 1 cup or 1/2 cup servings. Then when I need some broth I just dump it frozen onto the meat as you see in the above picture. Before I started doing this I was wasting the remainder of the container because I didn't use it soon enough.
I let the meat cook several hours on low or overnight, until the salsa completely cooks down to nothing and leaves the meat flavorful and tender. I scoop the meat out with a slotted spoon and put it in a container, leaving the good juices in the crock pot. Then add whatever veggies I want and let them cook 2 or three more hours. I do it this way because I like my meat really tender, but I don't like the veggies mushy. This way the veggies still get the benefit of being cooked in the juices but aren't over-cooked.
Rylie likes carrots and green beans. I like green beans, potatoes, some diced tomatoes, and zucchini. I add the potatoes for myself and just don't give them to Rylie since they're not SCD-legal. In fact I really only give her the carrots, beans, and meat since that's all she likes at the moment, and I eat the other veggies.
This is the second round of photos on this topic. The first is here
