Oh my stars and sea life!
Posted June 5, 2012on:
Today I’m starting with my husband’s salad since it’s the prettiest. Since school has been out for a week for my kids, I’m enjoying a bit of lazy lunch time.
The salad is baby romaine & mixed greens on the bottom. The deep pink stars are watermelon radishes, the almost white stars are zucchini, and also included are yellow squash slices and carrot slices. At the top right are seedless green grapes with dried apricot stars on top. At the top left are our taco leftovers of Lifelight Smart Grounds (faux beef) mixed with black beluga lentils and heirloom tomatoes sliced on top packed in his Easy Lunch Box.
So we packed a lunch for the local aquarium today. We love it at Mote Marine Laboratory because we get to watch them feed sharks, see the graceful manatees eat, witness first hand how they rehabilitate the local sea turtles, dolphins and other sea life.
I packed a dolphin for Miss G with lots of snacking fruit & veggies. She has green grapes, at the top left are grape tomatoes with a dolphin pick. At the top right are raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, prunes and dried apricots on picks.
Miss A had leftover pieces of Field Roast from dinner last night made by The Grain Meat Company. It’s a vegan roast made entirely from wheat, grains and vegetables and tastes a whole lot like a normal roast. It will be on my shopping list for the holidays for sure! Yum!
And she got my very messy attempt at using a template for rice. I tried sprinkling cinnamon on her brown rice over a fish template. It was supposed to look like a fish, but it’s barely recognizable. On the top of her LunchBots are swords of grapes, blueberries and raspberries.
Not shown was my sandwich & fruit which were also eaten (mostly) by my kids!
