Skeletons, spiders and jack-o-lanterns in PlanetBox

I am having Christmas anxiety.  There, I said it.  I am desperately looking for tasteful fall/Thanksgiving table decor, and I can’t find it.  Pier One had their Christmas stuff out on October first.  Can someone please let me get through one holiday?  I adore Christmas, but I want to enjoy the now, people!

I’m still busy spooking out my kids’ lunches for Halloween as much as possible.

Jack-o-lantern & spider in Planet Box

Planet Box Rovers went off to school today.  Miss A has a Jack-o-lantern with WOWbutter soy nut free spread surrounded by organic red grapes.  To the left are peach sections with a happy jack pumpkin food pick.  Above is a small coconut covered date ball for a treat.  In the top left section are halved strawberries with a peeled clementine in the middle (spider not edible). And in the top compartment are steamed edamame pods with an oil-free falafel snack I bought from my favorite raw, vegan vendor at the local farmer’s market.

Pineapple with spider web

Both of my girls had pineapple pieces today for their snack.  Did you know one serving of pineapple is loaded with 137% of your Vitamin C recommendation?  It also contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and eating more than 3 fruit servings a day (supplements are NOT a substitute for the real thing!) helps protect against many diseases later in life.

Skulls in PlanetBox

Miss G had a skull and crossbones today for her pumpkin butter sandwich surrounded by organic grape tomatoes.  In the bottom left of her Planet Box are steamed edamame, a falafel snack and boney hand for creep factor.  She also has a date coconut ball for her treat, red grapes in the top left and in the top right are peach slices.

Happy Tuesday!

As, she mentioned in the last post…I pack daily lunches for my daughter, “Scout”, and share photos and tips on my blog, Organized Bites. My daughter and I are vegetarians, my husband isn’t…fortunately for me, he Continue Reading
