{Today’s Lunchbox} More Great Light

by Valerie on February 9, 2011 · 4 comments

Wednesday lunchbox
More great light! It makes me so happy.  Here are lunch and two snacks.

  • No, not mayo, but some lemony white bean hummus.  It was good but not blogworthy, and I let it process so long in the food processor that it became liquidy.  
  • Steamed kale, which goes well with either the the dressing or the liquid hummus
  • Cut-up red peppers
  • A banana blueberry muffin from  The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, made with duck eggs instead of chicken eggs.  This recipe is pretty awesome – the only sweeteners are the bananas and the blueberries.
  • Veggie-full Breakfast Hash from more recipe testing for Ricki’s new book Top of the Morning: Breakfasts without Sugar, Gluten, Eggs or Dairy. 


I often am asked how I portion out my lunch and snacks. It really depends on the day.  I generally eat a late morning snack and a late lunch, and usually snack at some point before dinner time, though not always. Usually I pack lunch and two snacks, but sometimes they great stretched out into lunch and three snacks, or downsized to a snack and lunch.  The later usually happens if I am eating lunch at 3 or 4pm, at which point my late morning snack is a far memory and I am starving. I stick to packing lunch and two snacks as much as possible, because I figure I can always bring food home and incorporate it into dinner.

Happy Wednesday!

The white bean hummus does look like mayo or sour cream. Sometimes, the food process works a little too well, no? 😉

I've had Elana's muffins bookmarked for forever – I really need to make them. Maybe this weekend, and I would love a copy of Ricki's book when it's published. Love her blog and all her recipes. I want that hash!

Your hash looks so great!! (why does that sound vaguely. . . .illegal?) 😉 Seriously, delish–as does everything. So glad you liked it! (and how did I ever miss the cranberry smoothie post–?? So sorry!) :)
