Miss G has days of the week lessons in spanish this week so I made her a Lunes lunch today.  In the top yellow flowers are raspberries with a blackberry in the middle and a sectioned plum on the right.  In the middle is her ice water and the bottom compartment are almond butter and jam sandwiches with LUNES cut out in Stretch Island fruit leather letters packed in her raspberry Goodbyn Bynto box.

For her snack today, nectarines, blueberry picks and strawberry hearts are packed in her Happy Tiffin stainless bento.

Little Miss A, 2, is having an insect filled lunch today.  They are studying bugs this week so I’m playing along.  She has Wholly Guacamole frozen in a spider cup.  The spider’s 8 eyes and mouth are made from kalamata olives.  Underneath are pretzel chips for dipping.  At the top right are organic raspberries on spider picks. Below that are strawberries and blueberries on ladybug picks.  And at the bottom left are plum sections with a bee pick packed in her LunchBots Quad.

My husband has a green salad today to go with his lunch.  He has mixed baby greens, organic green zebra stripe heirloom tomatoes, scallions and sugar snap peas.  At the top are mini carrots and strawberries packed in his Easy LunchBox container.

This afternoon we had some friends over to play.  I made some quick snacks with our FunBites Luv It cutters.  The girls had almond butter and jam mini sandwiches, strawberry hearts and this snack had a plum mouse with pumpkin seed eyes and nose and a Daiya (dairy free) cheese shred for the tail.

The second snack is a guacamole face with pretzel dippers and sliced olive eyes.  The mouth is a piece of Daiya (dairy free) cheese shred.  I made the rest of the FunBites mini sandwiches of almond butter and jam and strawberry hearts.

My husband had a baby spinach salad with teriyaki marinaded tofu in the middle and in slices around the edges.  I used a mini cookie cutter for the house shape.  I also included some yellow heirloom tomatoes.  At the top left are plum wedges and cantaloupe houses, and at the top right is a leftover soba noodle salad with cucumbers, scallions, radishes and carrots all packed in his Easy Lunchbox.  Not shown was his favorite ginger dressing.

Things I used to make this lunch:

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!
