March 2015 Lunch Menu

Week 1

2 – The snow is melting, but it’s still chilly outside. So we’re heating up our mugs with Black Bean Chili and Sweet Potato Cornbread. Sliced pears & apples served on the side.

3 – Yo quiero Nachos! With bite-sized organic corn tortilla strips, build your own nachos with traditional toppings, such as grass-fed ground beef, shredded cheese, corn, diced tomatoes, homemade salsa, and sour cream. Cinnamon Applesauce served on the side.

4 – “Breakfast for Lunch” is back with an Oatmeal Buffet ~ warm cinnamon-maple oatmeal with optional nuts, seeds, coconut flakes, and raisins. Then, cool down with Orange Dream Fruit Smoothies.

5 – Cheese Quesadillas, Raw Veggies & Dip, Grapes: It’s all oblique to me! These tasty triangles of organic cheese are melted between whole-wheat tortillas. Veggie sticks for your dipping pleasure and grapes served on the side.

6 – Oven Roasted Chicken Sliders, Spinach Mashed Potatoes, Pineapple: “Slider” may mean small sandwich, but these organic chicken sandwiches are packed with big flavor.
