lunches and focacia 016

Happy Wednesday! Today’s lunchbox is from last week, as today I am going on vacation to visit my parents in Switzerland (see a past travel lunchbox here, or a snapshot from a past trip here).  It has been very busy at work, so the above lunchbox is a good example of lunch, snacks and dinner:

  • Celery, red peppers and carrots with Raw Vegan Walnut Cheddar Cheese
  • Steamed kale with Miso Tahini dressing from Delectably Free (see my Adoption post of Beth’s blog)
  • This azuki bean salad, minus the quinoa and with black beans in addition to the azukis
  • Pumpkin Chia Pudding
  • Gena’s protein-packed kale chips recipe aka the magical kale chips
  • And finally, I might be on vacation, but {Today’s Lunchbox} is not.  I will post my travel lunchboxes Thursday and Friday next week, but in the meantime, I have a stockpile of lunchboxes I had not yet shared, a guest post from Faye, and some FAQs to answer, so expect a lunchbox-related post every day while I am away.

    can you believe after all this time of reading your blog, i've still not made kale chips? strange, but true. i think i need to give it a go!

    I'm impressed your kale chips lasted that long. Ours never do.

    Have a great trip!

    Look at all the colors, shapes, and textures in that lunchbox–very cool! Woohoo on the visit to Switzerland to see your parents! We've never visited, but want to as we have a few friends we've met on travel from Switzerland. Enjoy, Valerie!

    @Katie – definitely!

    @Bitt – I typically eat 1-2 servings straight out of the dehydrator. It was even worse when I was just making kale chips for me. But then I finally found a recipe my husband likes (Gena's Hemp PRotein Packed kale chips) so now if I eat most of them out of the dehydrator he gets sad, as he likes bringing them with lunches :)

    @Shirley – THanks so much :) It is a lovely place to visit, though I have to admit it is hard to eat gluten-free and dairy-free when eating out here (you pretty much have to eat a lot of salads). Fortunately I eat at home with my parents here, so it is easier.

    @Alisa – I am way too addicted to kale chips.
