Lunch success!

So this isn't something they'll likely eat daily.  But I found a lunch that both children gobbled up, amazing for James especially.  Since they're children, they get to eat more fruit to acount for a higher carb need in their growing bodies.  So here's what we ate today:

Chicken Salad - leftover chicken from last night, chopped, mayo, chopped celery, a sprinkle of dill weed
Cheddar cheese - I used mine to spread the salad on and used each slice as kind of a cracker
Apples (by request, a few slices/child)
Strawberries (2 for me, as desired for the kids)

So far, no post-lunch headache as I have been getting for a while.  Earlier this morning we did all have some string cheese as a snack.  It's going to take some time to determine whether the kids eat their snacks because they are hungry or they are conditioned to do so.  Carolyn is easy to figure out because I can ask her.  But James is tougher since he doesn't have a full vocabulary yet.  Plus his sleep is so erratic that it's hard to know if his crankiness is hunger or being tired.  I'm thinking snack this afternoon will be ants on a log, something I'm almost ashamed to say I've never fed either child, lol.    Almost nap time here!


  1. Try quartered grapes in your chicken salad - amazing the natural sweetness it adds (and makes it more kid friendly!)

  2. Great idea! The next time those are on sale I'll definitely do that.
