Lunch with Plum + Kindle Giveaway
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love packing lunches. Surely this insanity is fleeting, but for now I’m really enjoying myself, even though our staple of peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches has been effectively banned from the school premises.
It helps that I’ve found things that are simple enough to pack, so the process itself only takes about twenty minutes. We’re only a month into our second full year of elementary school, but I’ve accepted this lunchtime challenge and it’s an entertaining task. (It also helps that I love to cook).
I recently bought Catherine McCord’s new Weelicious Lunches book and it’s offered a bevy of new ideas. This morning I packed Sunbutter, banana and honey sandwiches on organic sprouted wheat bread (Costco!) along with a ton of veggies and fruit. I’m anxiously awaiting their verdict, but I’m guessing and hoping they were a hit.
Snack time tends to tweak my otherwise creative tendencies because they need something nutritious and quick. I usually pack a yogurt tube, string cheese, fruit slices, crackers and/or a healthy packaged snack. This is where Plum Organics comes in.
Their organic, low sugar & nut free options have been apart of our on-the-go routine since my oldest was a toddler. We’ve been buying their fruit and veggie squeezers for at least 5 years, packing them for road trips, going out to dinner and other adventures that take us away from our own kitchen. I’m happy to report that they not only like them still, but they’re thrilled to see them in their snack and lunch bags.
Even Beau likes the Plum Kids Morning Mashups with oatmeal.
Everything you see in this photo, including one Amazon Kindle Fire, is up for grabs for one lucky reader.
