...beetle fat...

Obscure birdwing grasshoppers (Schistocerca obscura)

Hurt no living thing:
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily,
Nor grasshopper so light of leap,
Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,
Nor harmless worms that creep.

Yummy PB&J Alternative


I'm always trying to come up with yummy, nutritious meals and snacks for my son's lunchbox.  I also try and change it up every day so it doesn't get boring.  Today's lunch included my new creation that is a delicious change from a plain old pb&j.

Ingredients:
1 Whole Wheat Tortilla
2T or so of Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
1/2 Apple, Diced
2T or so of Granola (I used Bear Naked Fit Vanilla Almond Crunch which only has 4g of sugar per serving!)

Directions:
Spread nut butter over tortilla.  Sprinkle with diced apple and granola.  Tightly roll up tortilla.  Cut in thirds.
Voila!  Great for adult lunches too!
