It’s almost time to make the transition to warmer, heartier foods in the spirit of fall, and we’re so ready for it. For as much as we love the bright, refreshing, and often water-filled foods of summer, we look forward to the traditions that holidays like Thanksgiving bring around – especially the carving of the turkey. 

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be celebrating the launch of STYLE Canada’s IGTV channel with the Turkey Farmers of Canada who are helping us work quality, Canadian protein into school lunches, gourmet breakfasts, and leftover meals this year. In this series, you’ll find healthy, easy-to-make recipes with simple ingredients that you’re bound to have in the fridge, courtesy of our recipe developer, Cassandra Wardrope (otherwise known as @tomato_tomatoe).

Back to school lunches can often feel daunting and tedious. These turkey and cheese pinwheels are anything but. They’re packed full of delicious lean protein and will keep your kids feeling excited for lunch time. Plus, when you eat Canadian Turkey, you’re supporting the country’s 500 plus turkey farmers and that’s something we can all feel great about!
