We are heading down the home straight toward the end of term 3 and I am guessing your 'what to put in the school lunchbox' mojo is fading. Yes? Well, since I have been on a 6 week vacation from filling lunchboxes I am feeling all enthusiastic about not falling into my old end of term fruit and a sandwich rut. I thought I'd share my progress coming up with lunch box goodness...
Day one: River went off to school with a brown rice nori roll filled with tuna and avocado, seaweed rice crackers, mandarin, dried apricots and two pieces of Natalie's excellent apple, oat and maple syrup slice (one piece for River, one piece to share with a friend).
Day two: egg and carrot sandwich made with millet sourdough, 1/2 a dragonfruit, mango and strawberry fruit flat (dehydrated fruit), red capsicum sticks and seaweed rice crackers.
Day three: corn thins spread with butter and topped with parmesan cheese, pitted kalamata olives, apple, raw chocolate brownie from our local raw food cafe (raw on rye).
Day four: cheese and vege spread wrap, seaweed rice crackers, mandarine, carrot sticks, 1/2 raw chocolate and date bar.
Day five: cucumber and cheese wholegrain roll, an apple, a coconut date roll, corn thin with vege spread.
Happy to report completely empty lunch box coming home. yay!
