Up in the sky, an apple and a doghouse
Posted May 21, 2012on:
My husband has to travel today so I suggested that I pack him a lunch. Airport food is dreadful in general, but when I flew recently I realized how tough it is to find ANYTHING vegitarian, vegan or just plain healthy. I packed my own sandwiches, but it was a long day of traveling. We are still doing our plant based diet so the goal is to eat as little processed food as possible. Since we’re still a bit new to the diet it takes some planning ahead.
He may want to kill me for a cutesy sandwich, but I couldn’t resist. He has the airplane LunchPunch cut out of Rudi’s Whole Grain bread which is our favorite brand for the past few months. The sandwich is surrounded by organic mini carrots and fresh blueberries on the top part. At the top left are locally grown cucumber slices and at the top right are grapes and a strawberry heart packed in his Easy Lunch Box.
Please excuse the poor photos for his traveling lunch. I had to take them late last night.
Since I know he will be traveling most of the day, I also packed a second smaller bento box. The bottom part has a single serve Sabra brand hummus with whole grain crackers and a heart container with dried cherries in it. The top portion is packed with halved strawberries as his afternoon snack along with a couple of Larabars.
Little Miss 2 year old is having an apple sandwich on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread with a surprise “worm” coming out of it. It’s actually an Annie’s Organic Fruit Bunny, but I drew a small face on one end with a food marker. Looks like a worm to me! She’s also having a small apple container of dried cherries. On the left side of her LunchBots Duo is a flower cup of halved grapes and a strawberry heart on top. Above that are blueberries.
Miss G is having a dog house sandwich with a silicone dog cup of blueberries, honeydew melon grass and a small orange cup of dried cherries. At the top right are grapes surrounding a carrot stick. At the top left is a cup of homegrown heirloom tomatoes and a green dog pick packed in her Easy Lunch Box.
