Ladies & gentlemen, I think we have a theme. Today is Yellow Day in Ella's class, and so I planned a nice lunch with all yellow(ish) foods. At least she's getting her daily doses of vitamins A, C & D. Yesterday happened to be Blue Day, but I really couldn't think of all that many natural blue foods (and I don't like to use artificial dyes.) I let her go through the school lunch line that day for the first time, after discussing her choices. Instead of popcorn shrimp, she decided to get a vegetarian Caesar salad, peas & carrots, mac n' cheese, cornbread and her ubiquitous water, which is her favourite drink in the entire world. That sounds good to me!
This lunch is packed in a Greentainer. It's a two-tier, so what you see above is all combined into one container. I have a little yellow "Y" in the spicy yellow lentil hummus, with a sweet apricot salsa topping from Eat Well Enjoy Life that we just discovered at Costco. Delicious!! They also have edamame hummus which is also great.
Her snack below (which isn't yellow, unfortunately) is packed in a separate Greentainer.
Bento #202 - Fresh corn-off-the-cob with sea salt and cracked pepper, sliced yellow bell pepper, yellow lentil hummus, Pasta Prima five cheese ravioli with herb Parmesan and extra-virgin olive oil. Snack: Mozzarella cheese and fresh strawberries.
