Me. . . Brown-Bag-It? Ummm. . . no ma'am.

In keeping with my planning goal, I already packed my breakfast, lunch and snacks for tomorrow. So what does a jazzy chick like me pack her lunch in you ask? Well it just so happens, that today I graduated from carrying my Bento "laptop lunch box"(pictured below) to...
my new chic, JAZZY lunch TOTE. Check it out BAM!!!
My mom gave it to me for Christmas after I complained about my small Bento lunchbox. So bloggers, what's inside Me So Hongry's jazzy lunch tote?
Black Bean Omelet

Lunch:Cheesy Chicken & Pasta w/ Broccoli- 3 oz of grilled chicken breast, a bunch of broccoli, 1/2 cup of whole wheat pasta, 28 oz cheese, and a little turkey broth (made from the carcass of my recycled Christmas turkey) to keep the dish juicy for reheating.

And of course a salad. I eat some form of a salad daily.

THE BEST ORANGE...EVER! This orange came straight from the tree, no trucks, no grocery store...from the tree to ME!

Breakfast: Huevos Rancheros- 1 corn tortilla (on the bottom), 2 egg whites, scallions, 14 oz cheese, and an undisclosed amount of Arriba salsa. I put salsa on EVERYTHING!!

Lunch: Taco Turkey Soup-black beans, corn, recycled Christmas Turkey, spicy diced tomatoes, no salt added tomato sauce, taco seasoning (season to taste), scallions and 14 0z cheese. I made the stock from boiling the carcass of my Christmas turkey.

I made my own chips. Cut two corn tortillas into triangles, spray the tortillas on each side, sprinkle with a little sea salt and bake. These chips are not an exact science, so you may need to stand by the oven and peer inside frequently. If you walk away, you may BURN your chips.

  8. I love the new lunch bag!! I am curious to see what you think of the laptop lunchbox. I was looking at it online but I wondered if there were any leaking issues. I hate leaky lunches!

  9. Those Huevos Rancheros look DE-LISH. Now Im hungry.

  10. Now that's what I'm talkin' about! That food and your spiffy new lunchbox both look great!

  11. Hi from SITS! You look like the kind of person who really enjoys your food- like me! I am starting a new raw food lifestyle this year and blogging about it as well. Find it on my bloglist on my profile if you like. Sometimes we just need a little support, don't we?

  12. Love your new lunch bag but I love how excited you were about your orange more!

    I am a fruit snob and only oranges when they are in season and fresh from the tree. Or in my case, the carton I had shipped to my home from the orange grove.

  13. i'm all about anything that's not a brown bag.

  14. Your food photos are beautiful and so appetizing! It appears that you really enjoy preparing healthful meals, which is great for you AND your kids.

  15. Those food shots do look great! The secret is all about finding healthy foods you like, and eating involves research.

    I can't get away with growing an orange tree up here in the Pacific Northwest - I have to buy oranges - but we've definitely got apples. :D

  16. I love your lunch bag. I have been lusting after these for a while now.

  17. mmm! all of that looks so good. I might have to try a couple of these recipes.
