Hun... What's for Dinner? Cucumber Turkey Hummus Rolls #FreshSnacks

Well, we survived the first week back to school! It was a complete success with the kids excited to be returning and happy with their new teachers and classes. I enjoyed a few days of quiet and relaxation, before jumping in and helping in Queenie's old kindergarten class. Mr.B is in grade 4 this year, and unfortunately his teacher doesn't need any volunteer help in his class. So, I decided to go into Queenie's old kindie class to help once a week. Once her grade one teacher is organized, I will be helping once a week in that class too. That along with organizing the milk program and outside lunch program, I should be a busy lady this school year. 


While I'm busy at school, it's easy to skip meals, or wait until later to eat. If I do, I end up reaching for quick and sugary, carb loaded foods, because by then I am famished. This year. I will be prepared with the help of Summer Fresh Salads and their Summer Fresh Hummus 4-packs, and Summer Fresh Snack'n Go Hummus & Flatbread snack packs. Both of these Summer Fresh Hummus products come in Original, Roasted Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper flavours. These are perfect for on the go and are available in the refrigerated deli section of your favourite food store. I love being able to grab a Snack'n Go Hummus & Flatbread snack pack and run out the door, knowing I'll be snacking healthy and not coming home famished. I also like having the convenient 4- packs, which I can throw into my lunch bag, with some fresh veggies, when helping at school all day. Having to pack 3 lunches on a school day can be a little daunting, so any help I can get is great!

When thinking of a fun and delicious snack I could make for in my lunch box this year, I came up with Cucumber Turkey Hummus Rolls. These rolls are full of protein and taste great. The crisp cucumber pairs wonderfully with the creamy Summer Fresh Hummus and deli turkey. These protein packed snacks will keep you going after lunch, when many of us usually want to curl up and take a power nap. Summer Fresh Salad is always thinking of delicious and healthy #FreshSnacks for their customers. With their amazing selection of Hummus, dips and salads make it easy to eat healthy, when on the go, or at home. If you'd like to learn more about Summer Fresh Salads and learn some healthy snacking tips and tricks, you can join them on Twitter for a #FreshSnacks Twitter party, on Sept 18th at 9pm EST. If you are Canadian, make sure you RSVP for the party and a chance to win (7) $25 prize packs (bento box filled with free product coupons) and (1) $200 grand prize.
