Mommy & Me Lunch Ideas!

Veggie Hummus and Cheese Sandwich - Photo

We are eating more lunches together this year so I wanted to share 2 fun and different Mommy and Me Lunch Ideas that we have been making.  The ingredients are mostly the same for the mommy and me sandwiches, you just construct them slightly different.   We have been enjoying these 2 because

  • They are different than just plain turkey or ham and cheese 
  • You don’t have to think about something else for yourself 
  • You are not taking out 1 million things for lunch
  • They are packed with fruits, veggies and nutrients
  • I serve both with a side a fruit and extra veggie if its easy

Veggie Hummus & Cheese

with grapes, cucumbers & avocado

Ingredients needed:

Hummus

Muenster suggested but any cheese works

Avocado

Cucumber

Baby Kale or Spinach or Romaine (only adults)

Toasted Multigrain Bread or Pita (or your favorite gluten free bread)

A. Kid Version:

Hummus & Cheese with cucumbers and avocado on the side.  You can try and add the cucumber sliced thin, but my kids do not like it that way!  Spread hummus (about 1/2 tbsp of hummus per side for younger kids so its not too messy), add the cheese and you are done!  I cut it into bite size pieces for my toddler.

If you are packing it is also a fun change of pace!

B. Adult Version:

Spread hummus (about 1 tbsp per side) on both sides of toasted bread layer spinach on top so it sticks to the hummus.  Next layer the cucumber (about 5 thin slices) on one half, then the cheese (2 slices) then the avocado (about 1/4 sliced).  Finally top with the other spinach and hummus toast – enjoy!
