Healthy lunch box round up

So I was tired and lazy and have not posted each lunch daily, so here are the ones I have missed…

Ham & romaine lettuce rolled in whole wheat tortilla, yogurt with granola, apple slices with peanut butter and water. Oh and a couple M&Ms my parents got the kids against my request (we are about to be hit with Halloween candy.)

Peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat cut into hearts, orange slices, grapes and homemade sweet potato chips.

My son also had a PB&J on whole wheat but I cut his into a Mickey Mouse shape. And I ate the extras off their sandwiches… No waste! 🙂

Today’s healthy bento lunch box: egg wrap

My daughter would eat breakfast all day if I let her, so I try to occasionally incorporate breakfast into her lunch. Eggs really get a bad rap. They have nutritional benefits, especially if you can get local yard eggs (what most would think of as cage free, but the cage free term is misleading. Chickens only need to have access to the outside, even if its a measly opening in the giant coop.) Eggs offer protein, vitamins, minerals and iron. Yard eggs also are a good source of Omega-3.

OK, enough about egg benefits. Today’s lunch box contained a scrambled egg wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla with a little Earth Balance “butter,” watermelon flower on bed of pineapple and grapes, fresh peach slices and carrot sticks.

The yummy treat is a pumpkin donut for her snack. The recipe is here.

Today’s healthy bento box lunch: pizza bagel!

Today my daughters school served pizza bagels for lunch, so I thought I would send one in her lunch box too!

Pizza bagel with all natural pepperoni on whole wheat bagel, orange slices, fresh pineapple chunks, honey Dijon almonds and a few chocolate chips as a treat. I made the pizza bagel with a whole wheat bagel, used a heaping tablespoon of natural pizza sauce, arranged pepperoni on top, then shredded desired amount of mozzarella on top of that. I put in the toaster oven on 400 for a few minutes until cheese was melted. Whaalaa! Lunch!
