Snack: Meat Sticks

A great snack to pack for your kids, is a healthy meat stick! Grass-fed, or pastured meat is a fantastic source of protein, and is packed full of important nutrients!

Our favourite meat sticks are Island Bison’s Caveman Sticks.  These delicious pre-packaged meat sticks are perfect to take on the go.  Made with local, grass-fed/finished water buffalo meat these delicious sticks have 20% added liver and heart hidden in them.  They’re extremely tasty and SO nutrient dense! Water buffalo meat is full of protein, iron, vitamin B12 and lots of healthy fats.  The disguised organ meats enhance the nutrient content of these sticks, increasing iron and vitamin B12 content, and providing more fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin A & D.

 

Lunch: Tuna Salad or Wrap!

Mixing tuna up with some mayo & avocado is one of the easiest meals to make, and is FULL of nutrients.  It’s also incredibly versatile.  It can be packed to be spread on rice cakes, crackers, inside a wrap, or simply enjoyed on its own!

Here are a few of our ingredient choices:

Tuna:

Tuna, when sourced from a clean, ethical and wild source, is full of protein, and healthy omega-3 fats. It’s also delicious! 🙂

Raincoast tuna is one of the highest quality canned tuna options. Their albacore tuna is sourced from wild fish, caught in the Pacific Northwest of Canada!

 

 

Mayo:

Mayonnaise, when made with HEALTHY oils is an extremely nutrient dense and delicious addition to any meal! 🙂

Our favourite healthy mayo is Primal Kitchen’s Paleo Mayo! Made with avocado oil, and cage free eggs, this mayo is full of healthy fats! It also doesn’t have any added sugar, so you can feel great about adding this to your own, or your child’s lunch!

 

 

 

 

Paleo Wraps:
