Making up healthy lunch boxes for my kids is a struggle. They prefer bread or sandwiches, I prefer to go a little easy on the bread and sandwiches. So we compromise.
Luckily, in my country we have a tradition for eating sourdough rye bread for lunch. And even though I don’t eat any bread myself, I find that to be a good and filling lunch for my kids. I still want to vary the choices though.
One of the items I have the most success with in the lunch boxes are waffles. I’ve made several salty waffles already (remember the Onion Waffles or the Cheese Waffles?). This time I made cream cheese waffles. I used a cream cheese with onion and bell peppers and it added a really nice flavor to the waffles.
MAKES 6-7 WAFFLES
- 4 eggs
- 100g of cream cheese (you can use flavored cream cheese but look out for sugar and additives)
- 1/4 cup (0,5 dl) of heavy cream
- 3 tablespooon of Pofiber (or maybe 2 tablespoons of psyllium husks)
- a bit of salt
2. Add Pofiber or psyllium husks and whisk or blend again. Also add salt.
3. Preheat you waffle maker and bake your waffles. That’s how easy it is!
Here I used them in my LunchBot. I added fresh spinach, a good organic salami and some pesto and made a wrap. Served with bell peppers and apples and a side of nuts. A really nice lunch.
