Taco Tuesday…

I knew this morning was going to be a little hectic, so the other night I saved some leftover taco meat to re-heat for today’s lunch.  My son LOVES tacos so this is going to be a real treat for him and it was oh, so easy to throw together!   The Thermos container you see in this picture is the best thing I’ve found so far to keep food warm through lunch and I’ve tried quite a few so trust me on this one.   I bought this particular container at Target.  Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Today’s lunch includes:  taco meat (using locally raised grass fed meat), taco fixings, plum, carrots, “churros” which are actually mini cafe cinnamon twists from Trader Joe’s.

    I love you blog & philosophy! I try to do the same for my kids but you have inspired me to try and make their lunches more beautiful. I assume your school allows nuts as most of your lunches contains a variety of nuts. Both my son & daughter’s schools does not allow nuts. Do you have any other suggestions that are just as healthy as nuts?

      Hi Therese-
      Yes, my son can take nuts to lunch but he can’t see in the “nut free” zone of the lunch room. A good alternative to nuts are seeds (if you’re kids like them)…sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc… I’ll keep looking for more options so stay tuned! Thanks for the kind words!

    Hey! .. Very cute lunches :) I was wondering what usually pack your children to drink in there lunches?

    • Jamie says:

      Hi Sarah- I have a stainless steel water bottle that I pack in the side of my son’s backpack everyday. He grabs that and his lunchbox before heading to the lunchroom. I hope that helps!

    Love your blog. It’s very inspiring. My son is just 2, so he does not yet require a packed lunch. But you have inspired me to be more artistic in the food I serve him. And it’s actually helped to get him to eat more of his lunch before getting too distracted. I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for fun cookie cutters from now on!
