This is what our family are having in our lunch boxes tomorrow.
The main event is a paleo chicken taco with a chilli lime mayo,
a kiwifruit, spaghetti squash fritters and apple slices with peanut butter.
The rest of our family also have a boiled egg but this guy ate his before it reached his lunchbox!
To make the PALEO CHICKEN TORTILLA WITH CHILLI LIME MAYO; I used the tortilla recipe from here, it was super easy and quick, then took chicken breast sliced it thinly and added a clean Moroccan seasoning (I use the Simon Gault one), give the chicken slices and spices a bit of a massage the pan fried in a bit of coconut oil.
The salad in the taco is finely sliced cabbage, grated red and purple carrot and some coriander leaves, I sprinkle this with a little rice wine vinegar.
The dressing is mayonnaise use what ever you have, a couple of tablespoons of rice wine vinegar, a tablespoon of lime juice and some finely sliced chilli.
To arrange, just let your tortilla cool, pat off excess oil, add a good handful of salad, top with some chicken and top with your chilli lime mayo.
To make the SPAGHETTI SQUASH FRITTERS; take a couple of cups of cooked spaghetti squash (see here for cooking instructions), two eggs beaten, half a cup of tapioca flour, 1/4 cup of coconut flour (add your flours slowly as the final amount will depend on how wet your spaghetti squash is), a small tablespoon of arrowroot powder. Mix all this together, it should be kind of thick and you should be just able to pick it up with clean hands, roll into a ball then squash into a fritter shape. If not thick enough add a bit more tapioca flour, if too thick add a small amount of water.
Heat a pan with some oil to a medium heat and fry until nice and golden, once cooked place on a tea towel or paper towel and pat off any excess oil.
To make the APPLE SLICES WITH PEANUT BUTTER simply slice the apple into circles, remove the core, dip apple into a bowl with a tablespoon of lemon juice and a small amount of water (this stops the apple browning), spread with a clean peanut butter - there should only be peanuts and salt on the ingredient list, then place another slice of apple on top.
In the morning my husband will also make a CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE with half a banana, a tablespoon of cocoa, two tablespoons of greek yogurt, a splash of vanilla extract, and half a cup of unsweetened almond milk for my son to have after hockey practice before school. The cocoa masks the banana going brown before it is eaten.
To make the smoothie more substantial, you can add 1/8 cup ground almonds or a scoop of protein powder, a tablespoon of chia seeds, or my husband likes rolled oats in his - he grinds these up in a coffee grinder to a fine powder.
Happy clean eating everyone
