Stuck for School Lunches?

Stuck for School Lunches?

Laini Oldfield | November 8, 2018

I just ran a startling calculation.

With 5 kids, I’ve now made over 3,500 school lunches!

Umm… that’s a lotta lunches.

I’m no expert, but surely us parents (& kids if they’re helping!) deserve some cred.

School lunches are such an important part of our kid’s daily nutrition.

At school, they need protein to keep their brains firing, healthy fats to satiate, solid energy foods, and some fresh fruit & veg.

But yeah… as we all know, it’s pretty rare for school lunches to contain all that goodness.

I get it.

Mornings are crazy enough without making whole-food based lunches.

“Who has time for that?!” is easy to think.

But once I got into a habit of whole-fooding lunches and ditching packet-foods, it really wasn’t hard.

Like anything, there’s a learning curve, and then it’s second nature!

If you want some fresh ideas and recipes for school lunches, scroll on.

I’m proud to be an Ambassador for No Packet November!

No Packet November is a movement which encourages families to pack real food in lunches, and reduce their consumption of packaged food for one month. Packaged foods are usually rubbish on the outside, and rubbish on the inside 😉

And as my fellow-Ambassador Belinda Smith of The Root Cause put it, to make a stand against the billion-dollar food manufacturers that are making us sick. Not only are the many packet foods on our supermarket shelf contributing to many of today’s illnesses, they are also having a negative impact on the environment – the world in which our kids are growing up in. You can read about the scale of lunchbox rubbish here.

The goal?

We’d love to see Aussie students going to school with one less packet-food than usual every day in November.

Here’s some ideas:
My formula:

We have a lunch box ‘formula’ we loosely follow around here.

It helps the kids (or Jordan / me) take charge of their lunches easily.

It sits on the fridge and lists ideas for each category of food we ideally want in the lunch box each day.

1 x fruit
1 x vegetable
1 x protein food
1 x healthy fat food
1 x good energy food
1 x healthy treat
(and ideally, 1 x gut-lovin’ food)
*Often one food contains more than one of those things above. A smoothie for example can cover almost all of the above all at once!

You don’t need to be making a tonne of recipes!

Simple, simple, simple is always best.

Here’s a few ideas.

 

Fruit:

The easiest one ever.
– Whole / cut / sliced straight-up fruit
– Frozen fruit in a frozen smoothie. We love this one. You can even sneak in the protein and healthy fats too! Think hemp seeds, protein powder, avocado, cashews
– Rainbow fruit skewers (fruit of various colours thread onto a skewer)
Tip: Squeeze some lemon juice on cut fruit to stop it going brown.

Vegetable:

– Vege sticks are my go-to. I said we keep it simple 😉
– Try preparing them differently: sticks, rounds, grated, roasted, frozen (yep, try frozen peas and corn!).
– Celery boats (celery with a nut or seed butter, and sultanas placed on top)
– Pumpkin / zucchini / sweet potato in a mini-quiche
– 1/4 zucchini in the smoothie too 😉
– Rice paper rolls
– Grated carrot cake
Nachos (left over from dinner)
Taco salad (left over from dinner)
– Olives / pickles if your kids are into that
– Spinach sandwiches, if your kids already eat spinach at home
– Lettuce cup burgers

 

 

Protein:

– Boiled eggs
Hemp seeds / protein powder in a smoothie, sprinkled on basically anything, or in a bar or slice
– Hummus
Seeds / nuts
Seed spread on crackers or bread
– Any bar / slice / bliss ball loaded with seeds or nuts (depending on the nut-free status of your school)
– Cold chia puddings
– Roasted chickpeas
– Mini meat-balls
– Left over chicken nuggets
– Seed trail mix
– Check out the ‘protein ideas for school lunches’ below

 

Healthy Fat:

– Avocado in smoothie or guacamole dip with corn chips
Nut / seed butter (peanut / almond / tahini / sunflower / cashew butter…)
Nuts or seeds
– Salad dressing with good quality oils
– Chia seeds (pudding / in a smoothie)
– Good quality yoghurt

 

Good Energy Food:

– Wholegrain bread
– See the pizza scroll recipe below (make a big batch and freeze)
Quinoa fritters
– Pancakes (our absolute go-to! We usually use oats, spelt flour, banana flour or buckwheat flour as a base)
Rice (for sushi, or a taco / tuna salad)
Pasta (pasta salad / pasta bake / spaghetti left overs)
– Overnight oats
– Good quality wraps

 Vegan Buckwheat Banana Blueberry pancakes Recipe

 

Healthy Treat:

Popcorn (use the good stuff popped in the saucepan. It’s our 9-year-old’s speciality)
Cranberries, organic, no sugar
– Bliss balls (see heaps of recipes below)
– Other dried fruits like organic apricots
– Superfood bar
– Organic corn chips
– PB&J “toastie” (take a good quality puff pastry, cut into 4 squares, add a dollop of natural peanut (or sunflower) butter and chia-berry jam, fold it over into a triangle and bake.
– Or see the recipes below…

 

‘Gut-Lovin’ Food’:
– Yoghurt
– Anything made with this banana flour (soooo good for the gut)
Tiger nuts (if your kids like them. Half of mine do!)
– Hide some sauerkraut in their salad / sushi / dip
 

 

I’ll usually whip up a recipe for lunches once a week or so.

Protein Packed Ideas for School Lunches

Protein Packed Ideas for School Lunches

Laini Oldfield | October 10, 2018

I heard Bel Smith from the Root Cause talk about how vitally important it is that kids get enough protein in their school lunch box.

It’s a top way to boost brain function, and maintain good energy throughout the school day.

The amino acids in protein-rich foods are to thank.

I started thinking about my own kid’s lunch boxes and realised I need some fresh protein inspo – stat!

So I put it to our beautiful Facebook Community and you all came up with these cracker ideas for adding more protein to school lunches.

And here they are, all compiled together for you.

Let’s keep our kids brains firing throughout their school day!

 

Something Sweet

Bliss Balls
Bliss Balls are usually a good way to get in protein through nuts (if your school allows them), seeds, oats and quinoa flakes. There are many different combos you can do and you can jam pack so many beneficial ingredients into them. We love this delicious recipe from The Root Cause.

Banana Quinoa Protein Pancakes

Pancakes & Pikelets
Up the protein factor of your favourite pancake or pikelet recipe by swapping out some of the flour for protein-packed quinoa flour.
Try this recipe Gluten-Free, Protein Packed Quinoa Banana Pancakes

 

 

Something Meaty

Chicken Drumsticks “Chicken drumsticks/drumettes are another option, both easy and cheap and can be marinated in different flavours to suit your kids’ tastes.”

Chicken and Feta Patties “I have just made the chicken, carrot and feta patties and meatballs from Lisa Corduff’s ebook and they are delicious! I froze them straight away to resist the temptation to eat them all and now there are lunchbox mains ready to grab!”

You can get Lisa’s recipe by downloading this recipe ebook here

Meatballs
“Meatballs, they are always my backup in the freezer if I don’t have leftovers from dinner.”

 

Something Dairy

Yoghurt
“Create individual yoghurt pots with seeded granola”

Snack Time
“Try making baby capsicums or other small veggies stuffed with cheese”

 

Something Beany

Delicious lentil Dal RecipeDelicious, Dippable Dhal
“I’ve used the Well-Nourished Dhal as a dip or spread for sandwiches, wraps, or served with crackers and veggie sticks.”

Hummus Your Way
Chickpeas are a fantastic source of protein, and what kid doesn’t love a little dip? Try hummus on natural rice cakes, with some homemade crackers or veggie sticks.

Pulse Pancakes & Fritters
“We make protein-rich savoury pancakes with soaked moong beans ground up into a batter with spinach and spices,
or simply with besan and grated or pureed veggies”

.

Something Eggy

If your school allows eggs in lunch boxes this can be an easy and yummy way to get protein into growing bodies throughout the day.

Boiled Eggs

If your child is happy to eat a boiled egg in their lunchbox this is a quick and easy road to protein.

Mini Quiche
The perfect lunch boxed sized quiche filled with veg.

Zucchini Slice
“Zucchini slice (with extra veg) is our children’s absolute fave to find in their lunchbox. They happily eat it cold.”

 

Something Veggie

Peas Please!
“My girl also just loves loose peas. I sprinkle them in straight from freezer packet. That’s a bit of protein!”

 

Something Leftover

Dinner Leftovers
“I send a thermos with dinner leftovers – spaghetti bol, chicken stir-fry, lentils, baked beans etc.”

 

My 3 Secret Weapons to Combat a Bland Dinner

My 3 Secret Weapons to Combat a Bland Dinner

Laini Oldfield | September 25, 2018
Dinner bland? Use my 3 secret weapons!
.
This week I cooked a quadruple batch of Georgia Harding’s Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie.
.
Yep, quadruple.
.
I made a quadruple batch because:
1) Everyone likes it, and
2) So I had something in the freezer ready to go for busy days.
.
But after I’d made the massive base, something wasn’t right.
.
It was bland!
.
I don’t know what I did wrong, cos it’s usually nice and tasty.
.
So what did I do?
.
I certainly didn’t want not one but FOUR bland dinners for the next month!
.
And I didn’t want to sprinkle it with nasty bought stock (it used to be my ‘go-to’ for these such occasions).
.
Cue the wholefood-pro secret ingredients.
.
Well, I’m actually no pro, but these are top tips!
.
These trusty ingredients add depth, flavour… and conveniently – added nutrition to almost any meal!
.
Here they are. Drum roll please…
1. Nutritional yeast flakes

Taste: It’s mild & cheesy. Vegans use it as a cheese replacement!

Health benefits:

  • It’s rich in B vitamins, including B12, and provides 8 grams of protein per serve
  • Being high in vitamin B12 nutritional yeast flakes are a great way to prevent B12 deficiency
  • Nutritional yeast flakes are high in alpha-mannan and beta-glucan which are two main carbohydrates which help boost immunity. Beta-glucan may also help lower cholesterol.
How much?: You can go pretty heavy-handed with this one. I used to add only a couple tablespoons.
Now it’s more like a third/half of a cup! Just go with what you think, taste-testing as you go.
Get some here.
.
2. Dulse flakes
Taste: Well, it’s seaweed. So don’t go overboard here. It’s salty, earthy and intense. I add it more for the nutritional benefit than the taste (check that out below), but if you don’t add more than a tablespoon, you can get away with it unnoticed. If it’s your family’s first time, go with half a tablespoon, and work up from there to be sure they won’t detect it 😉

Health benefits:

  • Dulse flakes are a powerhouse of nutrients! Read about it here.
  • Packed with calcium, iron, all the B’s, C, magnesium, potassium, iodine – what’s not to love?
  • Great for keeping healthy iodine levels & detoxing radiation
  • Contain lignans, a potent and well known anti-cancer plant compound.
  • Strong evidence that it:
    – lowers the incidence of high blood pressure and stroke.
    – improves bone development, eye sight, digestion, & blood circulation
    – can help to prevent thyroid conditions,
  • High in Vitamins like A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, and E.
  • Being high in vitamin C, it’s great for the immune system.
   How much?: As above – one tablespoon per family meal is usually sufficient.
   Get some here.
.
3. Miso paste
Taste: Like Vegemite. In fact, we use it as Vegemite! Yep, we just spread it on toast. But it also provides a salty, depth of flavour, just like a stock would. When I don’t have any stock in the freezer, I’ll use miso paste (even if we do have stock actually).
Health benefits:
  • Miso is rich in soyasaponins, which is an antioxidant which has been shown to reduce inflammation and lower cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
  • It’s great for your gut health as miso is a fermented food.

How much?: Just add a big ol’ tablespoon of miso, to around the same amount of warm water, mix it up, then dump into the meal and stir through. Add more if you want! Just taste-test and see. *Being a living food, adding miso paste to hot dishes could kill the good bacteria living in it. Just be aware that when you add it to hot dishes, it’s more for the taste than the good stuff. Get some from good fruit & veg shops, or health food shops. Usually in the fridge.

.
What kind of meals will these secret weapons work for?
.

They work brilliantly in things like shepherds pie, spaghetti bolognese, casseroles, soups… a lot of dinner-type meals.
Think about it this way – If you could add cheese or stock powder to the meal, then you can add nutritional yeast flakes and miso.
.
.Dulse flakes are the ones you might need to be careful with. Don’t overdo them – if in doubt, go less and feel your way each time you use it. They’re soooo worth it because they pack a punch nutritionally.

.

Other tools for the taste-tool-kit:

.
4. Home made stock (so tasty, and soooo good for you).
It took me ages to get into the habit of this one. But I wish I’d done it  sooner as it’s incredibly easy.
Here’s how:
– Save the scraps of your veggies (tops and tails of carrots & beans, pumpkin skin etc)
– Pop them in a container in the freezer as you go
– When the container is full, whack them in your slow cooker
– Add whatever you have on had – an onion, a few bay leaves, whole pepper, a few carrots, whatever limp
    vegies you have in the fridge….
 – Fill the slow cooker with water
 – Turn it on and leave it for 24 hours!
 *If you want chicken or beef, just add a chicken carcass and cook for 12 hours instead of 24. Red meat bone-   based broth should go the full 24 hours.
.
5. Tomato paste
A great tool for the arsenal-kit for a bland meal.
Again, it will give it that depth of flavour that most dinner dishes need.
Even if diced tomatoes wouldn’t ‘go’ with the meal, you’ll often find a little tomato paste helps a lot.
Get some here.
.
6. Plus your usual salt, pepper, herbs & spices
Of course 😉
I only truly ‘discovered’ fresh
herbs about 12 months ago. Now I buy at least 4 bunches of fresh herbs each week. They are a-m-a-z-i-n-g for our health, and make everything taste soooo good.
Get some here.

 

.
7. I just can’t stop can I?
Did you know that instead of using cornflour to thicken your meals, tapioca flour works just as well?
Get some here.
.
Now go forth and make your meals…. better!
.
And let me know how you go in the comments, I’d love to hear.

Sneaky Tomato Sauce Switch!

Sneaky Tomato Sauce Switch!

Laini Oldfield | August 31, 2018

 

 

I totally pulled off the sneaky sauce switch!

I’d been putting off ditching the number-and-sugar-laden tomato sauce from the supermarket for toooo long.

When I finally made the sauce at home, I knew I’d have the best chance of winning the kids over with the switch if they didn’t know it was different to usual.

Cue sneaky-sauce-switch!

1. Keep an empty sauce bottle.

2. Pour your lovely home made sauce in it.

3. Serve as usual.

…and guess what? They didn’t even notice.

Fussy kids (or partners) tip 101: Tell them you made it yourself only after you know they like it! Otherwise they’re likely to turn their nose up before they’ve even tried it!

Check out the quick and easy recipe I used here
*If you’re worried about your kids not liking it, just add more honey and maple syrup than the recipe calls for, and reduce it a little each time you make it.

And, bonus! We’ve made a bundle of the TWC ingredients.

Simply grab the tomato sauce bundle here.


Tomato sauce ingredient bundle.

(Hopefully you’ve got some garlic and onion powder in the pantry already, as they’re the only 2 ingredients we don’t yet have. I’ve been playing with replacing them with asafoetida powder. When I perfect it I’ll let you know).

Tomato paste, organic
Raw apple cider vinegar, organic
Garlic powder & onion powder
Cinnamon powder, organic
Nutmeg powder, organic
Honey, raw
Clove powder, organic

Why would you want to bother though?

I know, ignorance is bliss.

But it’s also a recipe for poorer health for you and those you love.

These are the ingredients of the sauce we used to buy:

 

 

Let’s break it down…

Reconstituted tomato puree: is a highly processed food that’s cheaper to make and more profitable for companies. Not much nutrition left if that.

Sugar: We all know the pitfalls here, and as it’s second on the ingredient list, we know that next to the tomato puree at 75%, it’s the next most prominent ingredient in the sauce.

Salt: If you’ve done our 21 day challenge (if you haven’t, and want to, click here: https://m.me/thewholefoodcollective?ref=w2955756) you’ll know the importance of choosing a high quality salt that still has the naturally occurring minerals within it.

Acidity Regulator: Although 260 isn’t the worst, according to Chemical Maze it’s suspected for respiratory and immunotoxicity issues, and can cause skill ailments like eczema, itching, rashes etc).

Natural Worcestershire Sauce Flavour (contains soy): This is a bit of an unknown as by law there’s no need to declare ingredients of an ingredient. We know the word ‘natural’ means almost nothing, and we also know that non-organic soy is almost always genetically modified, and cheap sauces like this would almost always use non-organic ingredients.

Stabiliser (415): This is actually xanthan gum, so safe for most people except those with sensitivities to wheat.

Spices: All good here, except for being non-organic. Seriously, I did not appreciate how tasty and poignant fresh organic spices would be until I made the switch!

Sulphites: Don’t get me started on these babies. I’m pretty passionate about reducing sulphites for our family. Check out this post I did about sulphites in non-organic dried apricots here for the low-down. It’s not pretty: https://thewholefoodcollective.com.au/knew-conventional-dried-apricots-bad-b-d/

Knowing the sauce I’m giving my kids is free of all that stuff, and completely free of pesticides, due to being organic, feels pretty darn good.

I just can’t believe it took me so long.

It’s so easy.

Now it’s your turn!

Shakin’ Up Breakfast Time

Shakin’ Up Breakfast Time

Laini Oldfield | April 26, 2018

 

Breakfast.

It’s kind of a ‘big deal’.

“I don’t know what to eat”

“Making a whole food breakfast for my family just takes toooo long on my busy mornings! Toast and cereal it is!”

In my humble opinion, breakfast-is-the-easiest-wholefood-meal-of-the-day.

How I hear you say?

Protein shakes.

Aside from our other ‘go-to’ (porridge or straight up raw oats with some killer toppings), protein powders are a sure fire hit at our place.

They’re lightening fast (always a plus, right?), and they’re yum (every single one of our 5 kids loves them – no ‘special orders’).

But you’ve got protein shakes, and… well, protein shakes.

Heaps of them are full of stuff you don’t want to be eating.

You know. I know it. The makers of the protein shakes know it.

Lots of us have unanswered questions.

Questions about what’s *actually* in them. How it’s processed. Is it ethical? The ‘type’ of protein that best for you. Are the cows happy? Are the peas happy? 😉

In the past I just avoided them altogether.

But I don’t need to anymore. And nor do you.

Let’s just make a very informed choice.

I’m going to make that easy for you today.

(I’ll also give you a bunch of recipes and a cool podcast resource).

Because when you get your day started with a decent portion of your daily nutrition needs met, you set yourself (and your mini-me’s) up for the rest of it.

No more lethargy mid-morning. Faar less little people having tantrums (or let’s be real – us big people too), no more reaching for empty snacks to get you through. And the peace of mind of knowing you’re not loading your body with stuff that will compromise it’s awesomeness.

THESE words by our friend Lisa Corduff over at Small Steps Living explain the resistance Jordan and I felt to protein powders for toooo long:

“A few weeks ago I shared that I had entered the world of the protein powder. This was a big deal for me.

You see, I’m a food fan. Humans have existed on food for their basic needs since forever. And having a protein supplement felt like it went against my whole ethos.”

Right?!

And, this:
“Until I discovered that a good protein powder can actually be food too. My lack of understanding (and also serious scepticism because of dodgy claims and chemical cocktail products!) has been lost now that I’ve found a product I totally trust.”

Now you guys know how picky we are at TWC.

We don’t just take on any products.

They have to be premium, real, “clean”, we examine not only what’s in it, but how it’s processed…
… we believe in going back to simple, basic eating. And 180 Nutrition is one of the very few protein supplements I’ve seen that tick those simple boxes.

Check this out:

But don’t take my word for it.

Sarah Wilson of I Quit Sugar said this (originally here):

“Most of the info out there advises it’s all about whey protein. But know this: the whey needs to be…

  • Raw
  • Cold pressed
  • Derived from grass fed cows (Laini: or a vegan alternative)
  • Free of hormones and chemicals
  • Free of sugar

180 Nutrition’s protein superfood ticks all these boxes.

Also, less is more. This superfood contains only a handful of (recognisable, no “numbers” involved) ingredients.

So: no gluten, no artificial flavourings or preservatives, no processed sugars and sweeteners, no bulking agents 

or thickeners. PLUS the whole lot is 100% raw and (Laini: mostly) organic.

Here’s some cute pics of my kiddos drinking their 180 Smoothies, and me fuelling up with 180 on my bike ride to my solo weekend getaway. Soooo good. I thought chocolate would be my pick, but surprisingly, coconut wins for me with these bars. The kids like the chocolate ones though.

                                            

Still not convinced?

I’ll let these guys who I truly respect Lay. It. Down.

Our friend Alexx Stuart of Low Tox Life does a thorough dissection of the modern breakfast, the ROI (return on investment) we get, and compares it to her 180 Nutrition breakfast (I can call her my friend if she witnessed me get pushed into the pool by my 4 year old,

Alexx Stuart Ethusiastic Kitchen Kids There are a small select few protein powders that do what we want them to do – and that is offer great nutrition, remove the need for a between-meal snack and the associated costs of thatand taste good…. I trust them, I know the product, I’ve tasted and use it regularly, I like that they have vegan AND grass fed whey protein options to suit everybody. I’m a fan of their ethos and their massive desire for us to be our best selves. It shines through in everything they do and for the 100 brands I get asked to do something with, and the 99% I say “sorry because of XYZ” – this is the 1% that I say yes to, and then get to work getting us a little deal!”


And one of our biggest supporters Georgia Harding of Well Nourished said this:
“Navigating the many types of protein powders available is tricky business. Many brands are derived from feed-lot, grain-fed cows (also often fed GMOs), highly-processed soy proteins and contain franken-sugars, fructose, maltodextrin starches (aggravate blood sugars and the GIT), additives and more yuk ingredients. Most also contain absolutely no plant fibre, good fats or micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), so nutritionally they are incomplete and not at all reflective of a well-rounded, whole food meal. Thankfully, 180 Nutrition’s protein powders offer balanced nutrition and do what we need them to do—provide a sustaining, nutritious supplement, and here’s the clincher, that actually tastes good. It’s just got to taste good, right?

I love that they have vegan AND grass-fed whey protein options (to suit everybody) and that they couple their proteins with nourishing whole food to make them nutritionally complete (so much more than just protein). I’m a fan of their ethos in general and they’re an Aussie company that I know and trust… Their protein powders contains loads of essential minerals and B vitamins from plant sources for stable energy and mood, healthy fats and plant-based fibre. They are also super low in sugar (and fructose-friendly), so they will keep you full for longer, without a mid-morning blood sugar crisis.

Adding a serve to my son’s breakfast has made all the difference to his focus and mood, whilst still a quick and convenient meal for ‘those days’ when cooking eggs is out of the question.”

Check out 180’s video. They totally ‘get’ what we want. Just straight up real food.

And this cool infographic. I love a good infographic 😉

Now I’m sure you’ve heard enough.

Time for some recipes with 180 Nutrition!


 

And please – do yourself a favour and check our Stu’s podcast. It has over 2 million downloads, and it’s rated #1 in Australia for health and wellness. Impressive stuff. Did I mention he was passionate? 😉

 

Alright, that’s me, I’m out! If my blender wasn’t out of action right now (curse that fork I put in it while it was blending!), I’d go and make myself a shake.
