Monday’s lunch was a lovely mix of textures and colors. The yogurt bowl has plain homemade yogurt mixed with blueberries, lingonberry jam, chia seeds and honey. The puffed rice roll is a nice light, sweet, crispy snack. Veggies are sweet lipstick peppers and carrot slices. Fruits are apples and persimmons.

Today’s lunch has a couple of chicken sausage pizza roll-ups (crumbled chicken sausage, marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese rolled up and baked in a whole wheat tortilla). The peppers are a mix of sweet baby bell peppers and lipstick peppers—both kid favorites. My kids are much more evolved than me: I wouldn’t touch a pepper as a kid. Fruit today is a little container of unsweetened applesauce. I also threw in some Goldfish, roasted cashews and couple of Junior Mints for a treat. St. Nicholas was kind enough to leave some holiday Junior Mints in our shoes over the weekend. That, St. Nick, he’s such a great guy.
