Delivery of walk-in boxes on this bright summer day! Owner Ted Giouzelis and his son Mike are more excited than ever to add them to The LunchMaster kitchen. The storage units will help keep our food cold and crisp on warm, sunny days. Moreover, greater storage = greater outreach. We are in the works of expanding and serving more students fresh, wholesome meals!

Make sure to place your orders for our Margherita pizza this Friday! Our oven-baked pizza crust is piled with shredded parmesean cheese, fresh basil leaves, and sliced Roma tomatoes.
Nutrition 101:
Tomatoes are technically fruits, but they are generally categorized as vegetables. Tomatoes are a rich source of the antioxidant lycopene, which gives tomatoes a red color. The deeper and darker the tomato, the more lycopene it contains! Lycopene has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and has many anti-aging properties. Getting to eat pizza while having health & beauty benefits? Sounds like a win-win situation to us!

We’re serving a Gardenburger at our private schools today, which is jam-packed with high-nutrient value foods, including three different types of mushrooms, brown rice, bulgur, oats, & part-skim cheese. If you missed today’s lunch or would like to try a veggie burger yourself, pictured is a similar recipe that you could make for dinner. And…if your family is squeamish about veggie patties, that’s okay too. You can easily incorporate veggies, including mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers, into lean ground meat patties for some added health benefits.

Ingredients:
1 small/medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, diced
2 cups butternut squash or sweet potato, cooked & chopped
2 cups mushrooms, chopped
2 cups black beans
1 cup brown rice
.5 cup oats
.5 cup fresh cilantro
.5 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
.5 tsp salt
.25 tsp Black pepper
Oil for cooking

1. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and salt and cook until the onion is translucent, ~2-3 minutes. Add remaining vegetables and cook until soft, ~5-10 minutes.
2. Transfer all vegetables from pan into bowl. Add all remaining ingredients to cooked vegetables and mix together.
3. Form circular patties with fingers. Form mixture into 8 patties (~⅓ cup per patty) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
4. Refrigerate the patties uncovered for 30 minutes. (This will help the patties stay together.
5. After refrigeration, add 1 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until simmering. Cook 3-4 patties at a time until brown, ~3-4 minutes per side.
5. Serve immediately and enjoy!

P.S. Although it’s a foodie holiday every day for us, it’s #nationalfoodiesday today! We submitted our recipe on their site, www.nationalfoodiesday.com, along with a pasta dish.

Introducing our new menu item--bagel, string cheese, & sunflower seeds! We will be serving it tomorrow at lunchtime, so make sure to put your orders in.

Nutrition 101:
Bagel-Our bagels are whole grain, meaning that whole wheat flour is the first ingredient. Due to its rich nutrient value, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that half of your grain intake should consist of whole grains.
String cheese-String cheese is made by gently heating cheese, which allows its proteins to align together and makes it stringy. It's high protein and calcium content makes it great for on-the-go snacking.
Sunflower seeds-Contains healthy fats and one third of your daily value of vitamin E, a vitamin that acts as an anti-aging nutrient. Food is truly a beautiful thing.

We serve edamame (soybeans) every Monday during lunch! Edamame is a complete protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids in the perfect proportion for our dietary needs. Although most complete proteins come from meat, this is an exceptional case—and exceptionally delicious, at that!

We serve fresh fruits and vegetables daily, including baby carrots! Carrots deliver plenty of bang for their buck: One serving (~8 baby carrots)= 30 calories, 2.5g of fiber, and more than double the daily recommendation of vitamin A!

At The LunchMaster, we believe healthy food should be tasty and fun. The carrot pizzas featured in this photo are made from croissant dough cut in the shape of carrots. After baking, layer the croissant with cream cheese. Top the carrot "root" with shredded carrots, and place broccoli to resemble the stem and leaves.

04/23/2018

Broccoli Cheddar Potato Bowl served today at lunch! Here's some nutrition & fun facts for this delicious dish:
Broccoli is high in vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. It contains a variety of antioxidants that have beneficial effects against cancer.
Cheddar cheese is the second most popular cheese in the United States, with an average yearly consumption of 10 pounds! Don't worry about packing on pounds with our cheese, though--our sauce is made from part-skim milk and is lower in calories & fat than traditional cheese.
Potatoes-To get the most nutrients from a potato, you'll need to eat the skin. Thank our unpeeled potatoes for nourishing your body with fiber, iron, and vitamin C!

Here's a springtime snack idea for you to make with your children...we agree, it's almost too-cute to eat!

Here are a couple nutrition highlights:
1. Carrots: High in vitamin A, potassium, & fiber. We serve fresh carrot sticks daily with our lunches.
2. Eggs: High in protein, vitamin D, & B vitamins. We serve eggs in our salads, sandwiches, & yummy breakfast burritos!
3. Cheese: High in protein, calcium, & phosphorous. We serve cheese in our salads, sandwiches, & pastas. Cheese is a high-fat dairy, so we try to incorporate the reduced-fat version in our dishes!

1. Go on a stroll with your children through the park and enjoy the blooming flowers. Take time to appreciate the beauty that nature naturally brings. Note the vibrant colors, fresh smells, and euphonic bird songs.

2. Plant flowers, herbs, fruits, & vegetables at your house. Hands-on activities will help your children understand the hard work that is invested to grow food. It will also inspire them to consume the fruits & vegetables they have grown!

3. Have your children pick flowers from your yard and use them as a centerpiece when setting the dinner table. This is a great way to involve your children in the meal-making process, and it will encourage them to have a positive connotation with family meals.

I have worked with Mike, Ted, and their team on shared school accounts for the last two years. The LunchMaster first and foremost takes pride in the quality of their produce and the variety of their recipes. When I visit my school sites serving their meals, students are filling their plates and truly enjoy the options. Also, as the National School Lunch Program is ever-changing in regulations, they are always receptive to feedback and sharing resources on compliance and best practices.
