With Love From Me to You…

Today is Halloween but no, I am not showing any Halloween lunches today! Sorry!

You see due to Halloween day festivities I did not have to pack as many lunches as I normally would! My two youngest boys, Trevor and Evan, are having parties at daycare and my office is throwing an Oktoberfest shindig so no lunch needed for me! I did have to pack for Brendan and my husband so I pulled out my containers to throw together some quick lunches for them with no theme in mind, actually no nothing in mind. I just set out to pack food ha!

For my husband I started with more of a “use up my produce salad” approach. I pulled out and starting throwing in baby spinach, carrot chips, chopped green beans, red peppers and cucumbers. As I sliced the cucumbers I thought “hmmm I could just cut a little message in here so easily”… so I pulled out my mini cookie cutters and did just that. A simple little love note cut into the cucumbers and placed on top of the salad. If I had known I was going to have this thought I would have cut hearts out of the red peppers! ;)

I then added a clementine orange, basil parmesan vinaigrette dressing. cheddar bunnies, cinnamon flaxseed coated walnuts and a couple of Blueberry Almond Bites by Naturebox. This lunch is served in an Easy Lunch Box container (see product link at bottom of post).

Since I was toasting some thin bagels for breakfast I grabbed one to make Brendan’s sandwich today. A simple peanut butter smeared bagel cut into quarters. The little “bite sized” bagel sandwiches inspired this snacky lunch! One handful of Naturebox’s Antioxidant Boost was mixed with the same snacks I added for my husband, the cheddar bunnies and cinnamon flaxseed coated walnuts. I then made pineapple and grape kabobs and added some carrot chips. I also sent a Chobani Champions Greek Yogurt for Brendan’s snack time. Brendan’s lunch is served in a Lunchbots Trio, his favorite container.
