Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Lunches

I consider myself and my daughter very lucky that she does not have any nut allergies. 
So we can celebrate National Peanut Butter Day today! 

Peanut Butter and Jelly Dino Sandwich

Celery with Peanut Butter

Simple PBJ, clementine, raisins and cookies.
This was a last minute "I change my mind, I don't want school lunch today!" 
I literally had less than 2 minutes to find something in the pantry for food to pack.

  2. Love all your lunches! The Dino is so cute! And good for you to pull off a bento lunch on the fly! My kids often pull the "Oops, I changed my mind" on me :)

  3. Thanks! Miss C rarely does it and I was lucky enough to at least have a single fruit in the house at the time.

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
