We spent half of this past school year without a kitchen.
Needless to say, our family’s overall health took a hit on the steady diet of microwavable foods, lunch meat and PB&Js.
Our kitchen is almost complete now, and I cannot wait to start preparing food for my family again.
Inspired by Rubbermaid’s new LunchBlox I decided to get my food creativity engines revved up a little by putting together a lunch for my oldest daughter, Chloe.
Chloe is headed into 6th grade this year. At nearly 11 her body is growing fast and I want to ensure she continues to stay healthy. She has always been my child who will at least try anything. She loves oysters, sushi and salads as much as mac & cheese, so it’s important for me to encourage that range of eating for her school lunches too.
We don’t have a kitchen yet, so I headed to the market to get a few things from the produce and salad bar to put a healthy lunch together for her.
I like the LunchBlox because the containers click together nicely and feel very secure, but they’re also not impossible to open. The thin ice pack clicks together to keep everything cool. The whole unit would easily fit in a lunch box along with a drink and utensils.
I know the school year just ended, but I am kind of looking forward to fall now and all the great food I will get to make for the girls in our new space. They have been so patient throughout the entire renovation process. We of course feel so excited that we get to stay in this great city and experience the wealth of agriculture and beauty here.
