half a whole wheat pita
spread pb inside
use fresh cut fruit instead of jam or jelly
cut a few slices of whole wheat bread with cookie cutter shape of choice
spread with pb or cream cheese
top with fave fruit
open a whole wheat english muffin
spread with favorite tomato sauce
top with cheese of choice (we use almost anything we have in the fridge)
As a variation of #3, you can use cream cheese instead if tomato sauce and top with spinach and feta, tomatoes, olives, peppers, you name it!
Obviously, the above options are more kid-friendly, but all can be dressed up to be more grown-up. And, I just came across a splendid idea for making chocolate yogurt. HERE is my recipe for homemade yogurt that is stupid-easy to make. As you may remember, I make every batch vanilla and prefer to flavor individual servings via my mini-chop. Well, to make chocolate yogurt, you add a pinch of cocoa. No need to add sugar if you sweetened your batch of yogurt with honey, like I do. You can top this delectable treat with strawberries, raspberries, or bananas... whatever you're inclined to do. I haven't tried this yet, since I just found this recipe today, well, actually about 5 minutes ago which is what got me so excited about healthy lunches I keep forgetting the share. So, I'm anxious to see if I can pass this off to my kids as a real treat instead of the usually vanilla wafer or fruit snacks they get after meals. We'll see......
