Here is tomorrow's feast:
It is actually breakfast, lunch, and an after school snack, so I broke it down so that it doesn't look like quite so much food...

Nutri-Grain cherry pomegranate cereal bar, natural applesauce, tropical orange fruitables fruit/veg juice.

la Tortilla wrap with the last of my delicious deli ham and sharp cheddar cheese, a simply fruit roll folded in half, some loose granola, a few pretzels, 2 Girl Scout cookies, a banana, some natural applesauce, and I guess I forgot to add in the juice.

After school snack:
I Clif Crunch granola bar, Mott's fruit snacks (made from fruit/veg juice!) a few pretzels, a Reese's pb cup and a diet Coke. The diet Coke and pb cup are my reward for making it through the day :)

Back to reality...

Spring break is over, and it's back to work tomorrow. Here's the lunch I've packed to get me through that grueling first day back :)

Turkey and sharp cheddar on a traditional SmartWrap (13g of fiber!), chocolate granola, banana, natural applesauce, pudding (which I will put the granola in), fruitables fruit/veg juice. Under the granola, there's also Mott's fruit medleys fruit snacks, which are made from real fruit/veg juice.

Lots of fruits

Tomorrow's meals/snacks feature lots of fruits. I already can't wait to eat! Haha.

Breakfast (in the middle): Mussleman's natural applesauce, Quaker reduced sugar/low fat granola bar, Mott's Medleys apple juice (tastes almost just like regular apples juice except a little more tart maybe.) I love the concept of fruit/vegetable juices since I don't eat a lot of whole veggies because of my stomach.

Lunch: I feel like I packed an awful lot for lunch, but I know I will eat it all. I've been hungry by about 2:00 lately, so I've been packing a little more in my lunches to hold myself over. Shaved turkey breast and shredded sharp cheddar cheese on a light-original FlatOut wrap (90 calories, 9 grams of fiber!), Apple Fruitabu, Mussleman's natural applesauce, banana, 3 pretzels, a few ranch crackers, 4 mini Reese's peanut butter cups, cherry pomegranate V8Splash to drink.

After school snack: More Mussleman's applesauce (can you tell I'm obsessed lately?!?) a banana, some ranch crackers and a few mini PB cups.

Wow... that's a lot. But it's 12 hours worth of food!

Back at it

I have been eating lunch, I swear. Blogging just isn't a high priority this time of year. Things at school are crazy busy and when I get home at night I either a) don't take the time to pack a pretty lunch for the next day or b) don't take the time to blog about it. I do have 4 lunches to share with you though!

This was from sometime before Valentine's day... don't know when exactly. Potato and cheddar perogies, packed in tin foil so that I could heat them in the toaster oven at school. There's also some Wheat Thins sticks, cheddar cheese spread, a chocolate cookie and some Valentine's gummies.

Here we have some blueberry pancakes, crackers, a fruit roll (Fruit Roll-Ups Simply Fruit), string cheese, a Hershey's chocolate, pineapple juice and a juice box.

Eew, this picture is super blurry, sorry about that. This lunch is a whole lot like the last one, except there's more there... I was still hungry after the last lunch. 2 blueberry pancakes, bacon, fruit leather, 2 two-bite brownies, pineapple juice and a juice box. I guess there's not all that much more, but I don't remember being hungry after this one.

And now, for tomorrow:
I decided to show all 3 meals I pack each day for school: breakfast, lunch and an after school snack. I'm at school from 6:45am-6:00pm every day, so if I don't pack a breakfast the night before, I end up skipping it, or eating something terribly unhealthy. I have also found that if I don't pack a snack for after school, I get home at 6 and I'm famished, so I eat everything in sight. This way I'm hungry but not starving, so I have the patience to actually cook something for dinner, rather than eating my weight in crackers or something like that.

Breakfast: Banana, granola bar, cherry pomegranate V8 Splash

Lunch: Natural applesauce, ham and sharp cheddar in a Flat-Out Light Italian wrap (yum!), some homemade garlic croutons, cherry fruit leather, 2 sugar cookies, stuffing (just need to add hot water from the water cooler at school... works out great!) and a juice. Plus I'll be drinking water at lunch, just like to bring a little juice box to add an extra serving of fruit to my lunch.

After school snack: Wheat Thins, cheddar cheese spread, natural applesauce. Not pictured: the daily Diet Coke I reward myself with for making it through the day :)
