Adult Lunch Box: Shrimp and Avocado Salad

2 Oct

Well, the good news is that my daughter’s new lunch box, a Laptop Lunch Box, arrived! The bad news? It’s still too heavy for her to carry in her back pack. What does this mean? It means that I have a new lunch box, of course! For the rest of this year we will just pack our daughter’s snack in her soft Dora the Explorer lunch bag in our leftover take-out tupperware and she will re-inherit both her Planet Box and her Laptop Lunch Box when she’s a little bit bigger.

So, here is my Laptop Lunch debut! What I like about it is that the containers are deeper than in the Planet Box. However, it’s plastic. Planet Box is not. Also, the Laptop Lunch Box has its own built-in cutlery and is microwave-safe. Major win!

Check it out:

Lunch Box Contents:

Sugar Snap Peas

Shrimp-Avocado Salad – from this recipe on Kaylin’s Kitchen, modified by using homemade mayo a la this recipe. Calling it tasty does not do it justice! This compartment has a lid, I should mention :).

Baby cucumbers (the Laptop Lunch Box is deep enough to hold TWO baby cucumbers!)

Delicious Farmers’ Market Paleo Crackers (sunflower and flax seed)

Please look for a post offering a full comparison between the Planet Box and Laptop Lunch boxes in a little while – once I’ve had some hands-on experience with the new box!

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?
