We just celebrated American Thanksgiving… I definitely felt kale should be my main food group this week.

- Morning Snack: Chia Parfait and Apple Crunch (thank you Green Kitchen Stories!)
- Lunch: Festive Kale Salad with Sweet Apple Cinnamon Vinaigrette and Pecan Parmesan (original recipe is from Oh She Glows)
- Afternoon Snack: Clementine and Classic Glo Bar (original recipe is from Oh She Glows as well)
The Chia Parfait and Apple Crunch recipe is delicious and straightforward (thank you to Ella for the recommendation!). I stored it in small mason jars so I could easily grab one in the morning. It made enough for 5-6 small servings.
The Festive Kale Salad is perfect this time of year. It is really easy to make, but for the Pecan Parmesan, you need a food processor. I only used about half the dressing for 4 lunch-size salad servings. I also added a can of mixed beans for more protein.
The Classic Glo Bars are one of my all-time favorite recipes from Oh She Glows. I didn’t have parchment paper, so I used tin foil (which worked fine). These bars will stay fresh for over a week if you wrap them individually in tin foil, and then store them in a tupperware container in the fridge.
Mini chocolate chips (optional)
Unsweetened shredded coconut
Brown rice syrup
Almond butter (or peanut butter)
Apple cider vinegar
Gluten-free rolled oats
Crisp brown rice cereal
Mixed beans (or chickpeas)
*I’m assuming you have butter or coconut oil, cinnamon, ginger spice, sea salt, vanilla, olive oil and maple syrup – but if not, add those to your list as well!
Keep sending me your recipe recommendations – I love trying new things!
Happy lunch making,
