Little Miss 2 year old will be back to school next week so I will be a lunch making fool next Sunday night!  Enjoying a few extra moments until then.  Today I packed Miss G (4) black bean wraps.  I used a Rudi’s Spelt tortilla, spread on some Tofutti brand non-dairy cream cheese in a thin layer.  I added black beans, a tiny bit of shredded purple cabbage, julienned carrot strips and a tiny bit of Daiya cheese shreds.  I rolled it tightly, wrapped it in press & seal wrap whole and refrigerated it overnight.  I cut it into small wheels in the morning so it would be easier to cut and stuck in some cute animal picks to hold them together.  I also included grape tomatoes which she loves, sliced kiwi and strawberries packed in her LunchBots Uno.

For snack time today I packed her a small, double tiered bento box.  In the bottom are papaya flowers and raspberries and the top container has a halved dill pickle, more grape tomatoes and assorted olives.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Things I used to make this lunch:

Live music thumping on the streets, gorgeous old architecture, cobblestone streets and lots of interesting people.  What’s not to love about New Orleans?  I spent a long weekend there for a blogging conference.  I met some wonderful people, left with many pearls or wisdom and a large to do list and had a bunch of fun too.  I thought that hurricane Isaac would be hitting my house in Florida when I got home.  Luckily all we’ve seen is a bunch of rain and now the sun peeking out.  Just hoping for my New Orleans friends that they escape the worst.  Sometimes we need a little reminder of how lucky we are to have each day, and that our true needs are few.

A rainbow lunch is what I decided on for Miss G’s school lunch today.   A rainbow after the storm.  We have a new LunchBots Quad stainless container for the new school year.  At the top left are flower sandwiches on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread, top right are mini carrots underneath sugar snap peas and yellow bell pepper strips.  At the bottom right underneath are lots of pineapple pieces, and papaya and strawberry flowers on top.  And at the bottom left are picks of blueberries and blackberries.

For her snack today she had Sabra hummus with Sesmark brand Ancient Grain crackers made of amaranth, millet, sorghum and quinoa.  She also has sugar snap peas and pistachios mixed with dried cranberries packed in her sistema brand bento.  Not shown is her Kleen Kanteen water bottle.

And I sent my husband off to work with some leftovers (not shown) and a mixed green salad with sugar snap peas and mini carrots.  At the top left are organic blueberries and at top right are organic plums and nectarines packed in his Easy LunchBox container.
