The wonderful folks at @melissasproduce sent me this super colorful collection of tropical beauties, including my all time fave: fresh figs. ❤️. The package was waiting for me when I returned home from the hospital Thursday, and it was just what the doctor ordered! 😍. • I’m enormously grateful for the fruity sunshine and for my sweet husband, who has become Produce Prepper in Chief. 😎🤩 • Wishing you all a beautiful Saturday! 😘 . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #eattherainbow #melissasproduce #tropicalfruit #eatmorefruit #feedfeed @thefeedfeed
This combo right here: warm naan with avocado, pickled red onions and some micro greens... this is the stuff that dreams are made of! 💕🌟 • Here’s how to make those pickled onions: Thinly slice a red onion and place the rings in a strainer. Boil 2-3 cups of water, and pour slowly over the onions. In a ball jar big enough to fit all of the onions, add 1 teaspoon of salt + 1 teaspoon of sugar + 1 cup of white wine vinegar. Stir until the salt and sugar are dissolved. Add the onions. Let it sit for at least an hour. The flavor only gets better with time. Enjoy with absolutely everything! 😎 This will last a few weeks in the fridge, but ours are always eaten before that! 💕 p.s. - I tried making my own naan this past weekend. Not a great success. Would love to hear any tips you may have for that! 😘 . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #avocado #avocadotoast #pickledonions #vegetarian #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #heresmyfood @food #microgreens
I love the idea of kids in the kitchen. But sometimes, the stress of the mess prevents me from saying yes to my kids’ requests to cook. ???? I am a work in progress, and this year one of my goals is to agree to it more often. ???? • My kids have off today in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, and my 11 year old made (and styled!) waffles for the whole family. ???? The truth is, originally I said no to her request. I’m glad she talked me out of it. ???? . . . . . . . #lalalunchbox #kidsinthekitchen #feedfeed #waffles @produceforkids @thefeedfeed #2018goals

Leftover Pancake Lunch
September makes me feel like a crazy person every year. You too? I struggle to get into the swing of things. I forgot to take pics of the lunches I packed last night, so today I'm showing you two lunches from earlier in the week that I forgot to post! My 2nd grader and my kindergartener both chose pancakes, grapes and roasted chick peas, but they like different fruits and veggies so that's where the crossover ends.

The Omiebox has been a fantastic addition to our lunchbox family and it's the only box that has a built in thermos that keeps cold foods cold and hot foods hot. Game changer! Here we've got a yogurt parfait, tuxedo banana, grapes, lettuce and carrots.
