Strawberry roll ups and festive fruit bento boxes

Holiday weeks seem to always sneak up on me.  I like having an extra day with my family and catching up on things at home, but for the whole week my internal clock says it’s another day.  I am looking forward to the spring time change so I can have a few more hours in my day.

Bentoriffic Strawberries and almond butter roll ups

My 4 year old has an almond butter and freshly sliced organic strawberries wrapped in a Flatout brand Multi grain flax wrap.  Next to the roll ups are sliced kiwis.  In the top left are strawberry hearts and in the top right of her Easy Lunchboxes are mini carrots and celery sticks with almond butter.

Bentoriffic muffin & smiley mandarin snack bento

This LunchBots Quad is one of my favorites.  It packs a ton of food into a tiny space, and I don’t have to worry about things spilling into one another.  Miss G (4) has an afternoon snack of organic grape tomatoes, a heart shaped peanut butter chocolate chip muffin, a clementine with a happy face and marcona almonds mixed with goji berries.

In her LunchBots container are Minneola tangelo slices in the top left, pineapple and honeydew melon in the two opposite corners and mini heart pocket sandwiches in the bottom right filled with almond butter & a dab of agave nectar.

Hummus wrap and Halloween fun

It’s finally cooling off here at night in Florida.  And by cooling off, I mean that it drops below 70 at night.  I grew up in the Midwest in Minnesota so I do have weeks where I really miss the cool weather, crunching of leaves under foot and the smell of fall in the air.   Continue Reading
