While I am taking care of Evan as he recovers from his tonsil and adenoid removal surgery, the wonderful, talented and oh so sweet Rebecca from Bentos on the Bayou graciously agreed to fill in for me! Thank you so much to Rebecca for pulling double duty writing for both her blog and mine so I can focus on my little guy! Be sure to visit her blog to see other creative and healthy lunches! Or if you prefer follow her Facebook Page! I’m a big fan in case you can’t tell ;) !




My name is Rebecca and my blog is Bentos on the Bayou.  I am incredibly honored and excited to be your guest blogger today!  I am a homeschool mom of a 12 year old daughter and a 4 year old son.  My son has severe food allergies, so all the lunches on my blog are peanut & tree nut free.  Deb’s lunches have always been some of my favorites, so when the opportunity presented itself for me to write a guest post for her, I was extremely humbled.  Deb and I share a passion for providing nutritious & natural meals for our families, which is one reason I was drawn to her blog in the first place.  I feel so blessed that through our shared passion, we have also become friends.

Today, I am sharing a simple but fun surfboard lunch (pictured above).  My daughter recently began learning to surf, so this lunch is to honor her and her passion for the ocean.  I know that Deb and her family also enjoy the beach, so it is a perfect lunch to share today.
What’s in the Box?
Bed of Steamed Brown Rice (mixed with a little white rice I had leftover)
Palm Tree – 1/2 Large Pretzel Stick with halved Snow Peas layered for the branches
Surfboards – Yellow Squash & Carrot
Also included:  Raw Broccoli, Red Leaf Lettuce, Carrot Sticks, Baby Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes, Tiger Stripe Fig, Smoked Turkey w/ Provolone Roll-Ups
Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of your company today!
