This section is included for my veggie friends and for those who are lactose intolerant (or whose kids are!). I have had many requests for these ideas. Trevor was unable to handle lactose until he was almost three, so I had to be creative.
Oatmeal, grits, Cream of Wheat, homemade muffins (really quick if you cheat and use a Jiffy mix!), waffles, pancakes (frozen ones are still good--I make an extra large batch every time I do it and then flash freeze them to pop in the toaster later), english muffins with all kinds of toppings, fresh fruit (my favorite!), any whole grain cooked is good--my favorite is barley with brown sugar and cinnamon, I have also found that toast with peanut butter is a good quick protein breakfast. Rice and oatmeal are good with a variety of fruits cooked in with them, including: raisins, apples, peaches, bananas, and pears. If you are really craving cereal, make some Rice Krispy treats, there is no dairy in them :-)
peanut butter & jelly sandwich, cauliflower sandwich (see sandwich page), veggies in a pita (peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, grated carrots, cukes, etc. with Italian dressing), tomato sandwich, cold cuts on bread, tuna sandwhich with almondaise (if you don't eat eggs--see recipe below) any kind of pasta with tomato sauce (since we eats lots of pasta, I buy many different kinds and shapes), pasta with just garlic and italian seasoning or dill on it with a splash of olive oil, big salad, fruit, any kind of cooked veggies and rice. Buy a variety of crackers and rice cakes. Kids love the variety and so do I. I think one of the nicest, easiest lunches is leftovers from the night before!
Vegetable stew, beef stew, spaghetti, baked chicken with veggies, fish sticks and tater tots (Bradley's favorite!), lentil stew (recipe on meat-free main dish page), tacos (they are still good without cheese) or taco salad, baked potato with salad, enchiladas (again, no cheese added), we love pasta with chunky veggies on top, one of our favorite summer suppers is baked beans with grilled zucchini, any kind of meat with rice pilaf and veggies on the side, tamalie pie (recipe on meat-free main dish page).
