This is a short week of school for the kiddos: Monday was a holiday and Friday is a teacher work day to prep for next week’s parent-teacher conferences. Since today’s lunch was the last one I had to pack for the week, I decided to go all out with a colorful salad. The salad is loaded with goodness: romaine lettuce, lima beans, corn, carrots, roasted golden beets, and pomegranate seeds—all tossed in a little balsamic vinaigrette. I made myself a similar salad for lunch and, since then, I’ve been riding on a wave of positive salad energy. The kiddos also got some quesadilla triangles and grapes to go along with their colorful salads. Who wouldn’t want to eat a rainbow for lunch?
