Vegetarian Yumbox

Rose is on a bit of a vegetarian kick lately. We could all use a few meatless meals so everyone had similar vegetarian lunches packed in their new Yumboxes. This is Amy's very easy to pack vegetarian school lunch.

Amy has diced peaches, sliced apples with a yummy greek yogurt & peanut butter dip (recipe from BentOnBetterLunches), sliced veggies - radish, carrots & cucumber. There are 2 no bake energy bites (recipe from MOMables) and a boiled egg. 

Most foods in this lunch were considered her favourites so I thought I could sneak in a few new tastes like the dip and the radishes. Amy didn't like either, but her sisters sure did! Rose & Heidi had extremely similar lunches. Rose had pineapple instead of peaches and Heidi did not have radishes or cucumbers. 
They ate everything from their lunch save a few bites.

This lunch was extremely fast to pack! The boiled eggs were made the night before using this fool proof method and I had also made the energy bites ahead of time. Packing all 3 lunches in the morning took less than 10 minutes! Now that is FAST.

MOMables Hummus Rainbow lunch

This lunch idea came right off of the MOMables menu! I have packed veggies and hummus before but when I saw it come up on my weekly menu I realised that I haven't sent that in ages, and possibly not ever as the main part of lunch.

Rose has 2 fancy hat shaped sandwiches. I think they might be turkey but as this was lunch from about a week ago I can't recall exactly. She has a good variety of fruit - clementines, apples, red & green grapes and blackberries. The main compartment of her planetbox rover lunchbox holds hummus and an assortment of fresh veggies - red, orange and green bell peppers, cucumber hearts, carrot sticks and a couple of grape tomatoes.

If you aren't familiar with MOMables lunch menus you can check it out here. Even if you don't sign up for a subscription right now, definitely sign up for their email newsletter!

Here are some items that I used when making this lunch.

Momables Mini Quiches

This post contains affiliate links

Today, Rose has a recipe straight off the Momables menu, Ham & Cheese Mini Quiches. Momables is a lunch menu planning service. You can sign up to receive a weekly menu of 5 lunch recipes with photos, tips & shopping list. Each recipe gives you a hint to make it gluten free or vegetarian if applicable. When you sign up you also gain access to other Momables recipes and their homemade resource guides which are not available on the public website.

Rose has green grapes, cantaloupe, a green salad with baby butter lettuce, cucumbers, carrots and yellow pepper. The top compartment has orange pepper, green beans and grape tomatoes. In the main compartment there are 5 mini quiches. The original recipe calls for ham but we substituted honey roasted turkey since that's what was on hand. 

This recipe literally took 20 minutes tops to whip up last night. I popped them in the fridge and packed them for lunch this morning. They were cooling on the rack for a bit after baking and at one point I thought I would have to stash a few away to make sure there would be some left for lunch. Turns out they are a quick and yummy snack too and everyone in the house gave them the kid seal of approval!

Strawberry Spinach Wraps, a MOMables lunch

Simple healthy lunch for Rose.
boiled egg, popcorn, red grapes, strawberries
strawberry, cream cheese & spinach wrap

This wrap was a new item for Rose. She ate one half and said next time leave out the strawberries! I thought for sure she would have said no spinach. So I'm pleasantly surprised. I put plenty of extras in her lunch just in case she didn't like the wrap. I hadn't tried it at home first. This recipe was a MOMables recipe - I just tweaked it to make it vegetarian. I enjoy my MOMables subscription so far. It's nice to see so many lunch choices each week! It certainly makes me want to try something new.
