I ordered a new Planetbox lunchbox for Miss G.  She is over the moon about her new box and owl carrying bag, and she’s anxious to pack her lunch in it again all by herself.  Today’s lunches are vegan, gluten free and soy free (except the pretzels which contain wheat).

Bentoriffic pasta and fruit lunch in Planetbox

I packed the first lunch for her in it.  Clockwise from the top are slices of blood orange, Go Raw Pizza flax snacks, cashews, dried aprictos and dried cranberries.  In the round stainless container is gluten free, vegan pesto macaroni in it with black olives and heirloom tomato slices. The bottom left compartment has sliced kiwi and in the middle is a coconut covered date and raisin “snow ball”.

Cukes, almonds and guac snack

For her preschool snack today, Miss G has two small bento boxes.  The top contains mini cucumbers from a local farm, and Trader Joe’s brand marcona almonds with rosemary.  The bottom container has a Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie snack pack of guac with peace pretzel chips for dipping.  At the bottom are dried mango slices.

quinoa, black beans, peas & carrots

For Miss A’s toddler lunch, she has a LunchBots Quad stainless container.  From the top left are dried cherries, rosemary roasted marcona almonds, kiwi and watermelon slices, quinoa topped with black beans, peas, carrots and shallots, and in the bottom left are carambola (star fruit) and sugar snap peas.

Happy Lunch Packing!

It’s almost trick or treat time.  I wish I could say that I’m ready, but I’m not.   My kids’ costumes were ordered and still haven’t arrived.  I am throwing a party in my front yard this year with my neighbor so we can feed the kids healthy food, play games and wear them out a bit before trick or treating.  We did the same last year, and they were pretty full from healthy food before all the candy so it was a success!  We made almond butter and jam sandwiches, fresh fruit, vegetable sticks with dip, hummus and pretzels and ice water. Any fun ideas that you all are planning?  I’d love to hear your ideas!

My 2 year old has a jack o lantern sandwich made from the heel of the bread loaf and filled with pumpkin butter spread.  She also has black olives, cantaloupe pumpkins, dried apricot pumpkins and at the top left is a nut and seed mixture with dried cranberries complete with zombie hand and tombstone.  At the top right is a peeled clementine packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

Little Miss G (4) has a similar lunch today.  She has the same jack-o-lantern sandwich, a jack-o-lantern clementine, pumpkin shaped dried apricots and trail mix of nuts and berries in her Easy Lunchboxes Mini dipper container.  At the top left is a seckel pear and at the top right are pumpkin shaped cantaloupe pieces packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

And for a snack I packed a Happy Tiffin stainless bento with raspberries, a clementine ghost and the round container full of cashews.

Happy weekend, everyone!

Little Miss A had dress up day today at school so she’s decked out in her Minnie Mouse dress & polka dot bow today.    Miss G is home with me still under the weather, but resting in full Cinderella decor on the couch.  I sent Miss A with a turkey & cheese on pumpernickel cat sandwich, Applegate turkey dog stars and a moon marshmallow on the left.  On the right are watermelon cats, a pasta skewer of sliced green grapes, prunes and dried cranberries.  She also has an ice water and a whole milk, berry flavored Lifeway Kefir pouch with her lunch.
