View Full Version : new kid in town

Hi, my son has just told me that he needs to go raw (he is experiencing the same things I have that have brought me to raw, muscle and joint pain). He is in high school and is wondering what he could take for lunch. I suggested a green smoothie before leaving for school and allisa's Indian Spinach dip with crudits for lunch. That seems portable and likely to stay fresh till his 1:30pm lunch. Does anyone here have lunch ideas for a young teen? His back pack already weighs 22lbs and he has little space left. So large thermos is out of the question. We really appreciate any ideas you might have!

What about cut veggies like...
- summer squash
- grape tomatoes
Oh and of course any type of fruit.
Hope that helps.

you know them plastic screw top jars around 16 to 24 oz that peanuts are sold in . i fill them with my self made trail mix (walnuts , almonds , raisins , dry pineapple chunks , chopped dates , sunseed , etc ) and bring a banana , apple or orange , plus bottle of water for my anytime anywhere meal . you can just " drink " the mix out of jar making it very efficient . good day :)

I can't think of anything more portable AND socially acceptable for a kid's lunch than sunburger sandwiches. Yes, you need to have a dehydrater to prepare them, but you can make them up in several different varieties in big batches... they keep for weeks in the refrig... and they travel well, taste great, and even LOOK like what other kids are eating. It's a no-brainer.

Pizza, enchiladas, calzone -- top choices.
If you want easier, though, try:
Guacamole with raw crackers for chips.
Mock Salmon Pate with celery sticks for scooping.
Soaked then deydrated nuts with veggies. A great combination is cucumber chunks with brazil nuts.
Raw almond butter with apple slices for dipping.
Raw brownies, fudge balls, other desserts.
And, always, of course - bunches of fruit.

Thanks so much all of you! Lots of great ideas. I am going to try all of them. The peanut butter jar is a great idea. thanks. I had not tried the mock salmon yet so now I will. The sunburger sounds great too. I am hoping to try to make a great pizza bread tomorrow as well. I have been mostly raw the past 10 months so I do know some things, but I was concerned about keeping his food intersting for best success. He made it 5 days completely raw before having any cooked food. He and I are the only raw ones in the family now and the rest have all kinds of cooked foods in front of us. I just have to keep a steady supply of tasty foods for him to grab first.
