What’s in your lunchbox?

I’ve been busy working on some submissions to the Thinking Mom’s Revolution blog and haven’t devoted much brain space to my own little page.

I have been trying to keep track of lunches–mostly for myself. I pack lunches the night before and prep any cooking I’m going to do. For instance, I send hot dogs–grass fed, no nitrates–once a week, so I do any chopping the night before, set out my pan, oil or fat (I’ve been using a lot of avocado oil lately), fill a saucepan of water, put out the stainless thermos.

To optimize the thermos, I fill it with boiling water to heat the interior, then just before the hot food goes in, I dump out the water and give the thermos a quick wipe out.

Salami, plantain chips, pear, strawberry squisher and a fruit leather.

Chicken noodle soup made with homemade broth (not pictured: a healthy shot of Cholula hot sauce!), blackberries, organic chips.

Fried rice made with organic bacon, GF graham crackers, organic chips, packet of Justin’s honey almond butter, organic apple slices, strawberry squisher and fruit leather.

Organic Sweet Italian Chicken sausage from Applegate Farms, sliced Roma tomatoes with salt, “hacked” madelines.

Blueberries, package of almonds, Chana masala (spicy Indian chickpeas), beef salami, potato chips, strawberry squisher.

Blueberries, grass-fed Fork in the Road mini hot dogs, organic ketchup, strawberry squisher, potato chips, fruit leather.

The fruit leather and squisher are the current substitute for the oft-requested gummi bears. I haven’t mastered my recipe for them yet.
