A Better Lunchbox – Week One

Week One

Tuesday:

 Sofie's First Day of School (14)

  1. Homemade chicken fingers – organic free range chicken, dipped in organic milk, coated in a seasoned brown rice flour and corn starch mix, then pan fried in olive oil.
  2. Organic white rice balls – shaped into a heart and star with a rice mold
  3. Organic broccoli – steamed
  4. Organic raspberries – from our farm CSA

Consumption: She ate everything except the broccoli.

  1. Pan seared organic pork chop – pounded thin, sprinkled with garlic salt and then pan seared in a little olive oil. Dice up for easy eating.
  2. Organic spouted whole wheat sandwiches – toasted with a light smeared of organic cream cheese. Cut into flower shapes with a cookie cutter.
  3. Organic strawberries – from our farm CSA share Eating With The Seasons
  4. Organic edamame – steamed
  5. Organic baby carrots – steamed

Consumption: She ate everything except for 3 carrots and the toast. We were trying new bread this week…and well, we have decided that while we like their hamburger and hot dog buns, we aren’t thrilled with the bread. So I can’t fault her for not eating it. We’ll shop for a new kind to try this weekend.

  1. Homemade organic brown-rice coated chicken fingers
  2. Organic mini-pita bread
  3. Organic peaches – from our fruit CSA share with Frog Hollow Farm
  4. Organic Colby Cheese – I snuck this in after I took the photo, cubed and added in the peach container

Consumption: She ate all the tomatoes, peaches, cheese and pita. But barely touched the rest. Sofie has a nose for fresh food, somehow she tends to gobble down what I prepare fresh for her and skips anything that had been in the fridge for a couple days. She also had a bit of a meltdown over something at school,

which didn’t help.  

Friday: Sofie's school lunch - 2010 09 10 (4)

  1. Boccalone Italian sausage – grilled the night before with our dinner, then sliced and served cold with this lunch
  2. Trader Joe’s Multi grain crackers
  3. Organic peaches – from our fruit CSA share with Frog Hollow Farm
  4. Organic edamame – steamed and very very lightly salted with sea salt
  5. Organic baby carrots – steamed and very very lightly salted with sea salt

Consumption: She ate all the peaches and edamame, half of the sausage, a few crackers and one carrot.
