Pumpkin waffle sandwich with cream cheese and strawberry fruit spread, boiled egg, pineapple, and kiwi, oh and raspberry yogurt covered pretzels. She asked me to pack this lunch for her every day. 🙂

Son didn’t think he’d like the sandwich (not much he doesn’t like, so surprising), so I gave him a sample sandwich and cut his pumpkin waffles up and gave a little container of syrup.

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!

Today’s healthy bento box lunch

I didn’t post my daughters lunch yesterday. Time just got away from me and I forgot!

She had rice and beans (rice, black beans, onions, with bits of sausage and bacon). Plus peanut butter and strawberry jelly roll ups. The apple was her snack.

Today my son packed daddy’s “concoction,” cucumber and cream cheese roll ups, tomato slices and plum slices. So you are wondering what concoction is? Something my husband invented after learning more about the Paleo diet. He (OK, I) take romaine (or other dark leafy green like kale), carrots, onion, bell pepper, cucumber and broccoli and run it through the food processor. Just use your desired amount of each item. We top that with sun dried tomatoes, sun flower seeds, apple cider vinegar, tobacco and sometimes extra virgin olive oil. My son usually prefers it without the ACV, so basically just eats a bowl of shredded veggies! And he absolutely LOVES it.
