Happy Monday! I got back last night from HLS and immediately set out to get food for the week on track, which was helped by a little pre-planning prior to leaving for the weekend and a little help via purchased kale chips (yay OpenSky credit). Above is today’s lunchbox of lunch, dinner and several snacks:
- Romaine lettuce with red peppers, Twin Oaks Tofu (Italian Herb flavor) and Cheezy Red Pepper Hemp Dressing (which is packed under the tofu)
- Sauteed pepper, kale and zucchini, which I froze on Thursday to ensure the vegetables would not go back. I packed them with some leftover chickpeas, quinoa and truRoots sprouted bean trio which is why the lunchbox has a distinctly UFO shape, though not quite as UFO-ish as this lunchbox
- Brad’s Kale Chips (the plain kind which is anything but plain)
- Chia seeds, gluten-free oats, raw cacao mashed with a banana and some almond milk (basically a repeat of my HLS breakfast) – I ate half for breakfast and the other half as a snack in the late afternoon
If you are new to my lunchbox series, Tuesdays and Fridays are for lunchbox tips and guest bloggers, so tomorrow I will address some tips on returning from travel and packing lunches. While long-time readers of this lunchbox series (which is almost a year old!) know that sometimes I post a lunchbox from a few days earlier, above is the actual lunchbox I had today.
Have a great night!
Specific Disclosure: I received Twin Oaks Tofu from the company a few months ago. That tofu supply is long gone, and I purchased the tofu in this lunchbox myself, but I wanted to emphasize that the fact I received free products in the past did not affect my perception of the product, and the views expressed in past Twin Oaks Tofu mentions on this blog, as well as this particular lunchbox post, are my own and remain uninfluenced.
