Crisp Apple Pizza Bites ~ Healthy Lunch Ideas

I am always looking for new healthy lunch ideas that are both easy and taste good.  My kids love anything to do with pizza, and these Crisp Apple Pizza Bites are one of their favorite snacks. Perfect for little hands and fun for them to make too. You can change the recipe to fit your families personal favorites but here is what we like to put on ours.

  • 1 Pink Lady apple, cored and cut into slices
  • peanut butter
  • granola
  • craisins
  • pumpkin seeds (without the shell)
  • chocolate chips
  • Honey (optional)
Spread the peanut butter (also amazing with Almond butter) on each slice then sprinkle the toppings. Drizzle some honey for extra sweetness!  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!

Salad In A Jar Recipe, Mason Jar Salad ideas, Easy meal prep for lunch on the go, Healthy Recipe made easy with these Salad Ingredients ready for a healthy meal

As you know, these little salads are great for work, going to the beach, a picnic..etc… Add anything you want to it. I’m sure you realize that no matter how you decide to make your salad in a jar, always add the dressing first (so it stays in the bottom of your jar) and after that either put some grain/seed type of food over it (such as Quinoa or beans) and stack your veggies – then when you’re ready to eat shake the jar!  A Mason Jar works great for this, I like the wide mouth jars best. Make sure you check out our list of over 18 salad ideas below.
So in one of them there’s:
Chickpeas
Cucumbers
Cherry Tomatoes
Shredded Carrots
Tuna (f you do not like tuna add grilled chicken)
Hard Boiled eggs
Spring Lettuce
If you find the jar is hard to eat out of, or you need something that is NOT breakable these are some other great options. Same concept for easy meal prep with healthy ingredients to make a salad on the go.

Healthy Spring Recipes ~ TULIP TOMATOES

Do you need something pretty for  Mothers Day Brunch, or a Garden Party?  These beautiful tulip tomatoes serve as both a eye catching table decor and a yummy veggie tray at the same time.  I love the colors and how fresh and healthy they look, almost to pretty to eat. To make a mixed bouquet you could use some yellow grape tomatoes too. These look great on a white serving tray.

Yields: 15 tulips, Ready in 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 15 Large Cherry Tomatoes
  • 16 stalks of chives
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

1. With stem side down, cut a cross in the top of each cherry tomato (about 3?4 down the tomato).

2. Using a spoon (grapefruit spoon works very well) to gently scrape out the tomato seeds.

3. Take a grilling skewer or toothpick and make a hole where the stem currently is. You may need to twist the skewer in a circle a few times to make room for the chive to fit through.

4. Finely chop or grate cucumber.

5. Mix cream cheese, cucumber and basil in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.

6. Add a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into each tomato tulip (adjust depending on size of tomatoes).

7. Insert a chive into the hole at the bottom of each tomato.

8. Use a damp paper towel to clean any excess cream cheese filling from outside of tomatoes.

9. Prepare the tulip bouquet on a large plate or platter. Use the extra chive stalk to wrap around the tulip stems to complete the bouquet.
