Today I took my kids to a family festival. There were some twenty food stands there, but I had packed sandwiches on whole wheat, carrot sticks, apples and homemade trail mix (with mini-marshmallows and chocolate chips, for the kids). Plus a big tumbler of ice cold water. So we all ate a healthy lunch as our moveable feast instead of the festival food options: funnel cake, gyros, hot dogs, chips, cotton candy, Dove bars and the like. I was not hailed as a good mom for bringing our lunches. No, instead, I was dubbed "the meanest mom in the world." Sound familiar? I did, however, treat them to a lemon ice later when the temperatures climbed.
And I thought of all of you when I saw this group of parade participants! Look at those veggies (a leaf of red cabbage and a pickle where there too) and the protein: a fish. Only thing I'd change: white to wheat. Good stuff.
