Back to school!

Aug 21, 2023

Finding easy school lunch ideas can be challenging, especially when your child has serious allergies. Simple Kneads understands these difficulties. We have kiddos of our own who also have varied diets and often feel left out when everyone else’s food looks so yummy. So, we want your child’s back-to-school experience to be, not only tasty and fun, but also super nutritious! And if your child is gluten-free, vegan, allergic to tree nuts, eggs, soy, and/or celiac, our breads are safe for them!

A special tip when making sandwiches with our bread: Lightly toast, spread or load with fillings, and place in a ziplock bag, or wrap in saran wrap, while still warm. This little trick will keep bread soft and pliable until lunch.

Here’s a chickpea tuna-like salad recipe that our kids love to stuff in their sandwiches… However, I rarely measure, so make it to your liking using the following ingredients!

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 small onion, diced very fine
  • Different colored bell peppers diced fine
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Your favorite plant-based mayo (1-2 Tablespoons)
  • Salt

Directions:

Drain chickpeas/mash with a potato masher or in a food processor. Place in a bowl, add all ingredients and mix well. ENJOY!

*When cooking without measuring cups or spoons, always start with a small amount of herbs and spices and build from there. In the recipe idea above, I would advise you begin with dashes and sprinkles. And remember, you can’t “unadd” ingredients like cayenne and rosemary. Also, if you use too many ingredients it can ruin the flavor. Simple is best!

Is Quick, Cheap Food Less Expensive

Some of us here at Simple Kneads were raised on a plant-based, wholefoods diet, and we have raised our families the same way. But I must admit, I often wondered what it would be like to live on the “wild side.” When I was little, I dreamed about having a bowl of...
