Last night was “Taco Night,” a family tradition since we moved to Pennsylvania. I cook a giant batch of this awesome chicken taco mix in the crockpot and my parents come over and let us host for once! We all hover over our tiny kitchen table and make our own tacos (crispy and soft). Even though the eating seems endless, it is relatively healthy (low-fat ingredients and lots of veggies) and there is always a lot left over!
Girlie took a little burrito made with fat-free refried beans and low-fat cheese and she has lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and a little dipper of low-fat sour cream on the side. She also has some cheese shapes, strawberries, golden plum slices, and a bit of my mom’s sopapilla dessert. Delish!
This lunch is full of fruit and dairy goodness. She has a large serving of fruit salad, composed of strawberries, blueberries, and pineapple. She also has mini peppers, cheddar cheese tortilla pinwheels, a yogurt-covered pretzel, and a Chobani Champions yogurt tube.
I can’t resist packing Cute-Z-Cute sandwiches in all of our lunchboxes. She had a frog that was surrounded by blueberries. She also had mini peppers with a laughing cow lite wedge, grapes, a chocolate quarter, and a Chobani Champions yogurt tube.
This lunch was a leftover from Pi Day last week! She had a slice of apple pie, strawberries, grapes, cheddar stars, mini peppers, and tortilla and cheese pinwheels.
I like the versatility of the PlanetBox because it has sections of varying sizes and shapes, which naturally causes the layout to be dynamic and fun. Even though I pack relatively similar ingredients within the same week, the lunch always looks different. It looks neat and clean and the stainless steel makes the food color “pop,” which gets my kids more excited to eat a variety of foods.
Do you have a PlanetBox? What dishes do you like to pack in the big dipper? I’d love some ideas on how to use it!
