meatloaf lunch

Meatloaf (Paleo) and sweet potatoes
cucumbers and clementine
packed in an EasyLunchBox

My husband made the meatloaf with ground beef, shredded carrots, chopped onions, eggs and spices. He cooks the way I do (experimental, using recipes as "guidelines," adding stuff here and there.) Otherwise, I would share the recipe with you.


  1. Love how you used the cucumber scraps! My boyfriend and I were just talking about scraps last night. He said my bento making (which I am about to start) is going to be a big waste of food because of all of the left over scraps. I will have to share this one with him later :]

    Thanks for sharing!

    P.s. I have your link at the very bottom of my blog :-]

  2. Aww. Thanks Rose! Let me share some links for you (and your husband) from my friend Cristi at BentOnBetterLunches regarding scraps:
    and this link from Kendra of Biting the Hand that Feeds You:
    We do not waste food! :) Almost everything gets eaten. Sometimes, I just eat scraps as part of my breakfast :)

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. :)
