Fish shaped sandwiches, bowties, veggies and dumplings

I think I will quit saying I’m back.  I never really left, but honestly it’s been a rough school year in my house.  Life has gotten in the way of blogging for me lately.  I enjoy it, but the kids and trying to take better care of myself does prevent me from posting as often as I’d like.  I am still making cute lunches, we’re still plant based and the kids are still eating.  I just haven’t been snapping photos of everything.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who continue to follow me on  social media or through the blog while things have been sporadic.  I appreciate every one of you!  Every little comment,  “like” and “share” means you’re supporting what it is that I do and helping others to feed their children better, and that’s all that matters to me.

Field Roast deli slice fish

Today I made my 6 year old a sandwich.  I love using the Lunch Punch sandwich cutters because they take about 2 minutes to use, and Voila!  Cuteness!  I cut the whole wheat bread first and then cut the filling separately and assemble.  In this case it was romaine lettuce, mustard and Field Roast vegan deli slices made from lentils and other veggies.  Around the sandwiches are homemade fig treats.  And to the right in her Easy Lunchboxes containers are pear pieces and strawberry hearts.

Hummus with carrot heart


To go along with her lunch today, Miss G has organic mini carrots with a container of hummus.  I cut the ends off of 2 mini carrots to make a small heart for her.

Farfalle pesto lunchMy little one (4) requested “butterfly” pasta today so I made whole wheat farfalle (bow tie) pasta with dairy free, vegan pesto sauce.  She also has pieces of pear and strawberry hearts in her Easy Lunchboxes container.

Mandarins, coconut and cracker snack

Miss A’s snack today is a combo of different things.  She has dried cranberries and dried mandarins, dried coconut strips and small edamame crackers all of which I found at Trader Joe’s over the weekend.  They’re packed in her Elpha & Epha bento box.

Veggies and dumplings with fruit


My husband has an Easy Lunchboxes container full of leftover homemade veggies and dumplings along with organic strawberries and blackberries for lunch today.

Things I used to make these lunches:

A hearty salad and pockets made with love

Miss G has kids in her kindergarten class that get hot lunches brought into the class.  She kept mentioning that she might like to try a salad.  So today she asked for one and requested certain vegetables.  Being me, I snuck in a bunch of other things for color that I thought she might like.

Grilled (dairy free) cheese all around

I was running low on groceries, and I happened to have some Daiya brand dairy free cheese shreds in my refrigerator. We try to keep processed and oily foods out of our diet as much as possible so this is a rare occasion for us. It was a foggy, chilly morning yesterday so the kids Continue Reading

Scalloped heart pocket and mini hearts for lunch

I’ve been trying to squeeze in a few Valentine themed lunches before the day hits.  Some days (like today) are gray, rainy and blah.  I know most of you are enduring extremely cold weather and awful storms so I hope these brighten your day a bit.  Hoping it cheers my little ones too. Miss A, Continue Reading

Tomato veggie wraps and mini love lunch

Miss G informed me that she is SICK of peanut butter.  She doesn’t want it any more.  I have to admit that my lunches (although cute) have lacked in variety lately.  I found this delicious sundried tomato spread at the farmer’s market Saturday.  I decided to build the lunch around it.  I used a whole Continue Reading
