It’s been really, really, really hot here on the Central Coast, and today might be the worst day yet. The kids typically don’t eat much for lunch on super hot days, so I try to pack lighter fare with lots of fruit. Today, I threw in some little grapes from the farmers market and some nice, cool slices of cantaloupe.

On Friday, I made a fruit salad with cantaloupe, grapes, and green plums. For sides, I included a yummy mix of chia seeds, strawberry jam and plain yogurt with some peanut butter filled pretzels. We’ll be powering through the week with more fruit and crunchy snacks from Trader Joe’s.
