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.

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.
