School Lunches

Week 6 – School Lunches

Happy Saturday as we approach the end of October! That means Halloween weekend is coming up! When we moved to Arizona over a year ago now it was weird to finally trick-or-treat actually on Halloween. It is great here to see all the homes decorated and people outside. With the usually nice weather, people are sitting out front to great the trick-or-treaters. In Iowa we had a designated beggers night and time in which the kiddos would go trick-or-treating. I like the change and really look forward to going all out once we buy our own home here! For now I will enjoy decorated the inside of the home and putting up a few lights outside. My oldest boy really wants one of those big blow up halloween creatures out in the front yard. I tell him that will be the first thing he can go and purchase with dad when we find our new home!

I hope you are enjoying my weekly school lunch post. I enjoy sharing what we have for lunches and how easy it is to pack a lunch! It is also great if your kiddos are old enough to help and pack them the night before or that morning. So here you go another week of healthy and delicious lunches in our Yumbox.

Monday: Cheesestick, celery, and cherries. Grilled hamburger. Lettuce leaves. Dark Chocolate Honey Mint that I get from Trader Joe’s. Those mints are so so so good! Even better in melted in your hot chocolate. Will be sharing my recipe for that soon, so stay tune!img_0799

Tuesday: Turkey Taco Salad with Goat Gouda cheese. Plantain chips. Mango Salsa ( you can find my recipe here).img_0800

Wednesday: Sunbutter and Honey wraps using Rudis wrap. Blueberries and Strawberries. Celery. Mix Kale salad ( I get from Costco, but I do not use the salad dressing in it.) Pepitas and Cranberries. Nick-Sticks ( you can buy them here). I love Wallace Farms Nick-Sticks they are a great protein made from grass-fed cows. I love to add them to lunches. They also make a good snack, keep in my purse on the go, or even after a workout!img_0801

Thursday: Bulgarian Yogurt with Raw Honey and Enjoy Life Foods mini chocolate chips. Blueberries and Strawberries. Uncured all beef hotdogs. Plantain chips. Carrots.img_0802

Friday: Lettuce Leaves and grilled chicken. Blueberries and cheesestick.img_0803

Another week in the books. Some days I struggle and don’t feel like making lunches, but then I remind myself how much my kiddos look forward to their lunch I pack them. Also I then know they are getting the fuel they need throughout the day to keep them going. I can say it was amazing not having to wash lunch boxes during fall break!!

Enjoy!img_0804

How did this weekend already pass me by?!? Kiddos are finishing up on fall break and keeping me busy that is for sure. Enjoying our evenings as a family at the pool winding down the day. Crazy to think of it being Fall, and the weather is still well into the 90s around here.

Since the kiddos are on break I am sharing my lunches I made for them the first week of school. They got to enjoy dinner leftovers of course and a special treat that week! Here is another week of healthy school lunches in our yumbox.
