An awesome lunch box treat for the kids as they head back to school. Egg Salad, sprouts and pickles in a healthy Flatout Multigrain and Flax Wrap.
Did anyone find their happy place this summer? That place where you’d move to in a second and be quite content to live forever?
I found mine, It’s anywhere on the central coast of California. We just returned from a long weekend in Morro Bay, paddle boarding, hiking and eating way too much good food.
Now as a new school year rolls around, it’s time to start thinking about easy school lunches. I honestly feel like I’ve covered every avenue of this morning routine, except with the sprouts. Never added sprouts.
Or egg salad.
The thing that makes egg salad a winner in almost everyones kitchen is the prep-ahead style of making it. Just throw some eggs (not literally) into some boiling water and boil for about 6-7 minutes.
This is easily done the night before so all you have to do the next morning is mix the eggs with mayonnaise, a squirt of mustard, some relish with salt and pepper. Super easy and my kids are all about helping to peel the eggs for some reason!
Mix it all up and lay it down on one of my favorite Flatout Multigrain and Flax Wraps. High fiber and only 100 calories per wrap, you really can’t beat this as an alternative to regular whole wheat bread.
You could even add some grated cheddar or chopped bacon to the egg salad, just check with the little people first because if they’re like mine, surprises don’t work.
I hope everyone’s summer was as awesome as mine this year, next up is fall…seriously? You can also turn your Flatout bread into crispy chips, perfect for dipping in this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip as an after school snack!
Good luck to all the kids who are in school already or like us, headed back in a few days.
Let’s do this lunch box thing!
