Here are some possible ideas for your children’s school lunches, or for your work or school lunches.

Tortilla Roll-Up Ideas (I make Paleo tortillas):

(In each of these, you will spread the ingredients evenly, or lay ingredients flat, then roll it up. Place in container and slice if desired) (Update 2017 – what fillings you use will depend on the eating habits of your family. Some allow for limited cheese, others don’t.)

  • nut butter and banana slices
  • coconut cream and sliced strawberries
  • coco bliss and kiwi slices
  • cream cheese and pepperoni slices
  • cheese and ham slices
  • mustard and turkey/chicken slices
  • mustard and hard-boiled egg slices
  • cheese slices and ground beef with lettuce leaves and tomato slices

Soup/Stew Ideas:

(Cook each soup/stew in water, broth or stock. Just cut veggies and cook. Add peas and any seasonings at the end.)

  • clam chowder
  • tomato, pepper, and zucchini
  • carrot, celery, and potato
  • chicken, tomato, onion, and carrots
  • tomato
  • pumpkin, zucchini, and butternut squash

Sandwich Ideas (I make Paleo bread):

  • sliced ham and cheese with pickles
  • cheese and pickles
  • mayo/alternative, cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, shredded carrot


Layer in a pan:

  • sauce
  • Paleo noodles
  • sauce
  • meat/alternative
  • cheeses
  • noodles
  • keep layering, with top layer noodles, sauce and cheese only

You could also use tomatoes and zucchini when you add the meat.

Shepherd’s Pie:

This is a simple formula. Cook potatoes and mash. Cook meat. Layer in baking dish: 1/4 cup water, meat, vegetables and sweet potato or squash.

  • meat choices: ground beef/alternative, chicken. turkey
  • vegetable choices:  peas, carrots, green beans
