I have challenged myself to be more healthy and less wasteful. I am going to journal my efforts to feed my kids healthy, waste free lunches and snacks. I will have some winners and some losers but I'm putting it all here...the good, the bad and even the ugly!
Day 324 - Someone in my google+ Lunch Packing Community had posted a recipe the other day for BLT Pasta Salad. It looked and sounded delicious! I wish I could find the post so I could credit back to her. I'll keep looking. Anyway, the recipe called for bacon, mayonnaise and sour cream, that is a lot of fat jammed into a "salad"! I used real bacon bits which are fairly lean and pack a ton of bacon flavor. I replaced the mayo and sour cream with yogurt. The recipe also called for cooking the tomatoes in bacon drippings. I lightly sprayed a non stick pan with olive oil. So all in all I think I lightened it up pretty good! It was delicious! D also has some orange jello with a couple of mini marshmallows and a clementine.
