Adult Lunch Box: Paleo Fish Sticks!

25 Sep

Ever since I went back to school, my husband has been the chef of the house. He’s recently been experimenting with almond flour breading for chicken and fish. Last night he made absolutely delicious fish sticks with Perch from our local Farmers’ Market. They were so satisfyingly crunchy with a hint of spice to give them a more ‘adult’ flavour. The best part of these fish sticks is that they were just as delicious eaten cold at lunch today as they were right out of the oven last night!

Today’s lunch box was somewhat depressingly bland, colour-wise, but it was one of the yummiest lunch boxes I’ve had in a while.

Lunch Box Contents:

Sunflower & Flax Seed crackers from the Farmers’ Market – I will miss these crackers SO much when the market ends for the season. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and they make both raw vegans AND Paleo eaters happy!

Avocado Slices

Sliced Ham

*note that I made mini ‘sandwiches’ using the crackers, ham and avocado at lunch time today. Crunchy and creamy!

Leftover Paleo Fish Sticks – if anyone is interested I can get the recipe from my husband and do a photo blog of how he prepares them next time he cooks. Is this of interest to anyone out there?

    How do you like your PlanetBox? I just started school again after graduating from college four years ago and my old lunch kookie with Pyrex dishes isn’t cutting it … too heavy and not enough space. I actually just did a post yesterday mentioning the PlanetBox, but still need to order one.

      Thanks Kristen! I can’t wait until we get the new, lighter weight lunch box for my daughter so I can post more kiddie boxes again!

      PaleoinPortland: I ADORE my PlanetBox. I saw on their site that they have a new model with a larger compartment for adults, but I find that the standard model has plenty of space (I’d probably get the one with the larger compartments if I brought big salads on a regular basis, though). The PlanetBox was too heavy for my daughter to carry around (age 3.5), but I find it slides into my backpack along with my books just fine and I don’t find it cumbersome at all. I actually often put the PlanetBox in the backpack compartment intended for my laptop and just carry my laptop. That way on the off chance that there’s a spill (which has only happened once back when I first got the box) it’s separated from my notes and textbooks. I also get TONS of compliments on the box and on my lunches from professors and fellow students, which is always a nice boost ;). Good luck with your return to school!

    I have been following all your kids lunch boxes. I love the adult one!
