Healthy Lunches for Back to School

3 Sep

lunchbox

Hi sushi lovers! The following post is another helpful and healthy from our friends at Lifestyle Revolutions:

Hey Mom and Dad, school time is back again and its time to add an important step to your morning routine: packing the lunch box!

Kids love options that are healthy, quick, and easy to eat and even though they may prefer French fries and chicken strips on a daily basis, they also will love the thought you put into packing them a fun, healthy, and thought-filled lunch.  Healthier options may also help them focus throughout class and keep them from feeling a slump in the middle of their day.  Here are some tips, suggestions and easy recipes that will make your kiddo excited to dig in!

Meal Idea #1:

Grilled Cheese Sandwich and “Ants on a Log”

Take a slice of organic cheese between 2 pieces of Ezekial or Whole Wheat bread and cook on stove until cheese melts.

“Ants on a Log”: Take 1-2 Tablespoons of organic peanut butter or almond butter and smear in the “dip” of 3-4 pieces of celery.  Place raisins or dried cranberries on the butter in a row to look like marching “ants”.

Add in a piece of their favorite fruit and you’re good to go!

Meal Idea #2:

Muffin Pizzas and veggies

Toast a whole wheat English muffin. Spread some tomato-based sauce (about 2 Tablespoons) on both cut sides.  Meat-eaters add a little bit of grilled chicken pieces, or nitrate-free pepperoni and sprinkle organic mozzarella cheese on top and put into the toaster oven or under the broiler until cheese melts.  Vegetarian kiddos can sprinkle extra veggies and Vegan cheese on top.

As a side, give them baby carrots, celery, cucumber slices, or broccoli with low-fat salad dressing as a dipping sauce.

Meal Idea #3:

Turkey and Cheese Rollups with fruit and yogurt dip

Roll 2-4 slices of organic, nitrate-free deli turkey and low-fat cheese slices together and secure with toothpicks. Then mix 1 6oz container of yogurt with 1 Tablespoon of organic peanut or almond butter, and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon (optional).  Add the side of fruit to dip the sauce and they are set!

Meal Idea #4: Gluten Free and Vegetarian

Banana Butter Honey Hot Dog

Take an Udi’s or Rudi’s gluten free hot dog bun and smear 1 Tablespoon organic almond butter or peanut butter inside.  Next add about 1 Tablespoon raw honey and place a small banana inside the bun.  Wrap a paper towel around the dog to keep honey from getting bun too sticky on the outside.

Add some veggies like snap peas or sliced zucchini as a side. Yum-o!

Try a few of these out and let us know what your kids think!

International Sushi Day – 6/18/2013

12 Jun

June 18 is International Sushi Day! Why? Because we say it is… so deal with it! (and come eat lots of sushi with us.) Our participating locations will have $5 rolls all day long. If there’s a better way to celebrate such an important holiday, we aren’t aware of it.

For those of you who think we just made this holiday up to show our love for sushi (and give our loyal customers an amazing deal), it does actually have some history, although it isn’t much different from the explanation we gave you in the previous paragraph (see: “because we say it is”):
Back in 2009, the administrator of the “Sushi” Facebook page decided that June 18 would be the first International Sushi Day. The idea was taken and ran with by his over 1 million followers, and quickly became a social media hit.

How Do You Roll? is proud to carry on the tradition of this nontraditional holiday this year, and for years to come. So on Tuesday June 18, come join the sushi (and awesome holiday) revolution, and have as many $5 rolls as you can handle…and then maybe have just one more for good luck, after all International Sushi Day is but once a year, make it count!

The fine print: Only at participating locations. Dine in only. Cannot be combined with other offers. Offer not valid online. Offer valid for Featured Rolls and Custom (1 protein, 3 veggies, 1 topping).
