Chip's lunch: April 22, 2010

I don't have much to say about this lunch, except that the coloring you can see in the applesauce is vanilla and spices.

BUT. Two of the eggs have hatched now. I was able to snag a photo while momma bird was away. Pretty much the cutest thing I've ever seen. Until the other two eggs hatch, I suppose.

And our former foster Roxie is back. We are sitting her for an undetermined period of time. We adore this girl, and she settled right back in. She seems a little homesick, but I think she'll be just fine.

And tomorrow's lunch. I really need to go grocery shopping. Well, I really need to go grocery shopping and purchase more than Teddy Grahams.

Organic applesauce, steamed broccoli, Clif Z Bar, banana, and a PB&J with natural peanut butter on Ezekiel bread.

  1. Hi Katie,
    Just came across your wonderful blog!
    Love the pictures and the obvious care you put into the wonderful meals you are making for Chip:)
    I'd love to send you my new bento style EasyLunchbox System for you to try. If you enjoy using it & would like to share your experiences and photos of the lunches you make in them, I could link to your posts from our blog and send some traffic your way!

    The EasyLunchbox system makes it simple to organize, and quickly pack healthy lunches without wasting money, time, paper or plastic.

    Born out of my response to unhealthy school lunch programs, started from the desire to send my 3 kids to school with a nutritious meal, using little to no wasteful packaging. But the EasyLunchbox System is not just for kids. Adult size meals fit perfectly too. was launched in December, 2009 and is quickly becoming the new favorite among affordable and green lunch box solutions!
    Named a 'top 5 Eco-Friendly Mommy Must Have" by Parents Ask, the EasyLunchbox System has been rated TOP CHOICE by many independent reviewers. Read their reviews here: .

    I was like other frustrated moms - I didn't like throwing together lunches during the morning rush. So much time was wasted sorting through a cabinet of mismatched food containers while trying to pack 15-25 well-balanced lunches per week. I struggled to find something that would help me pack lunches fast, without resorting to the ‘convenience’ of expensive, pre-packaged ‘fast-food.’ Most importantly, I wanted something attractive, eco-friendly, and made of food-safe materials that I didn’t have to wash by hand.

    My clever solution to the lunch-packing chore is the simple two piece EasyLunchbox container: The bottom has three compartments to hold an entree or sandwich and two side dishes. The fitted lid (which comes in 4 colors) covers all three compartments at once. No more squished sandwiches, mismatched plastic container pieces to keep track of (matching up all those bottoms and lids was the thing that drove me nuts!) or wasteful baggies. Fits perfectly inside the roomy EasyLunchbox custom carrying bag. And there is still plenty of room to throw in an extra snack or two, whole fruit, perhaps a thermos of soup, drink and ice block. Flexibility is key, and since so many different things can fit, no matter what menu you choose to include, it packs easily and quickly. It's amazing how much faster, greener, & easier lunch box packing is with the EasyLunchbox system.
