The older my son gets, and the more recovered he gets, the more he notices what the kids at his lunch table think.  This is a quality problem.  On the one hand I want to tell him not to worry what they think, but the truth is it’s part of his recovery to take their thoughts into consideration.  So while it used to be “cool” with my son to take seaweed snacks in his lunch box now it is “not cool” because one of the girls said they were weird.  Heaven help me that I not only have to pack a nutritious GFCF meal, I now have to pack one that passes inspection from a snotty 7 year old girl who thinks that flame colored cheetos are healthy!  Thank goodness I like a challenge!

I have found a few things that are really helpful to pass the little girl lunch police.  Applegate Farms lunch meats are GFCF, they taste good, they smell good and they look like regular cold cuts with none of the crap.  No nitrates, no fillers, nothing but turkey and water.  You can even get it in bologna flavor!  Hah! Take that cheeto girl! 

Jem’s favorite lunch is now bologna wrap – using a brown rice tortilla from Food for Life.  I throw some sliced cucumbers in a bag, some baby carrots in another bag, a bottle of water and  an ice bag and I have an easy GFCF lunch that passes everyone’s test, including Jem’s.
