Chicken BLT Unwich

You went grain-free, paleo, real foodie or whatever you want to call it.  You feel great, you’re on a roll and then you go to pack your kid’s lunch for school and you’re like….ummm what’s my kid going to eat???

I have you covered!

Introducing the Unwich!

The Unwich is basically a sandwich without the bread.  I imagine you raising your hand in a fist pump, and going yay!  Take your favourite sandwich, or in this case your kid’s favourite sandwich and think about the components of it.  I loved Chicken BLT’s.  I used to make a double layer chicken blt sandwich and it was amazing.

The component’s of a chicken BLT:

  • Chicken
  • Bacon
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Mayo

You can take those and wrap it in a giant lettuce leaf or if appropriate, sliced organic deli meat.  For a kid’s lunch I left out homemade mayo because their lunch will probably not be refrigerated all day.

Then you need to pack your unwich in gear to match the coolness of the unwich.  That’s where MightyNest comes in.  MightyNest is an online store that you can use to shop for environmentally friendly lunch supplies like those cool stainless steel bento boxes.  To kick off the back-to-school season MightyNest is launching the “Let’s Do Lunch” campaign to inspire equipping our kids for a year of love-packed lunches.

    Hi Carol
    I love your new book but what I was very excited about trying were the crackers, because the ones I’ve tried so far weren’t all that exciting, but they require plantains, which are very hard to find over here… (no luck so far)… have you heard of anyone using something else? I’m aching for a grain free cracker!! 😀 Thanks, I’ll check back here to see your reply.
