I know it’s still snowing & cruddy almost everywhere else but here. We’ve had some cooler weather for Florida, but we are definitely spoiled with the sunshine and year round produce. We picked some local strawberries last week so there are still some left that I hadn’t frozen for smoothies yet.
Whenever I’m at a loss for things to make, I often turn to wraps. You can use dinner leftovers, lunch leftovers and pack it into a tortilla for a new meal. I used Rudi’s Organic Spelt Tortillas to make vegetable wraps. I used a homemade sunflower seed spread on the base, julienned carrots and cucumbers and pile on a small heap of steamed edamame and wrapped. I like to refrigerate them for a few minutes before attempting to cut them. The picks (bunnies in this lunchbox) help keep them together for little fingers. In with the mini wraps for Miss A are sugar snap peas and pineapple. At the top are organic raspberries, blueberries and strawberries in her Easy Lunchboxes container.
My favorite bento store, Bento USA by All Things For Sale carries some fabulous and very affordable ways to change up lunchtime. This new building block snack box is a favorite of ours for quick snacks. This one has pineapple, strawberries and sugar snap peas in it for a healthy, quick preschool snack.
Yes, it is possible to flirt even in a packed lunch. I’m not sure that the letters and hearts stay in place, but I’m hoping he gets the idea. My husband has the grown up version of the same sunflower spread and veggie wraps. I made a grape tomato heart on top and the letters are cut out of Stretch Island fruit leather. He has sugar snap peas and last night’s steamed lemon, shallots and slivered almond brussell sprouts in the top right compartment of his Easy LunchBoxes container.

Last week one of my friends posted a photo of kiwi berries. I had never seen or heard of them so it was a must find for me! We love kiwi, and I was hoping the flavor was similar. I was lucky enough to find them at a stand at the local farmer’s market. They only had a few, but I’ll be back for more after trying them!
Here’s what they look like inside. They are the size of grapes and sweet like kiwi without the fuzzy exterior. Just pop them in like grapes and eat. They have a very short season so if you’re lucky enough to find them, buy them and enjoy!
Both girls had the same wraps today for lunch. From the top left are raspberries and 3 kiwi berries on top. Inbetween the 2 cups are mini carrots and at the top right is a cup of lemon orzo. In the bottom container are red seedless grapes and the veggie wrap pinwheels. They are Rudi’s brand whole grain spelt tortillas. I used a homemade sunflower seed spread and added julienned carrots and steamed edamame.
Below are Miss G’s snacks for school. The top are watermelon flowers and the bottom is a cup of sprouted pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries mixed and grape tomatoes.
From the top left are red seedless grapes with sliced strawberries on top. In the top right compartment are kiwi berries, 2 pieces of corn shaped mini cornbread muffins and 3 grape tomatoes. At the bottom right are watermelon and d’anjou pear flowers, and in the bottom left are the same edamame and carrot wraps at the bottom right packed in her LunchBots Quad.
