Chicken Tacos (paleo ish)

We had leftover chicken tacos (super easy recipe below.) Even daddy had to get into the lunch action... It's a family affair! With the exception of the baby... who still is on mama's milk. Although... come to think of it I did store breastmilk in an Easylunchbox when I forgot to bring milk bottles to pump into at work 2 months ago... ha ha ha... squirrel!

Mommy's Lunch
Chicken taco salad, with pico de gallo & salsa {paleo}
Pecans and applesauce

Daddy's lunch:
Chicken taco salad with sour cream, pico, salsa and shredded cheese

Daddy did not pack his in an Easylunchbox because he said it didn't fit his (falling apart) cooler.
So 2 days later (thanks, Amazon Prime!) this arrived at the front door:

a black EasyLunchBox cooler just for Daddy!


Chicken Salsa Tacos

(slow cooker/Crock Pot recipe)

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
1 jar (16-24oz) preferred salsa

1/2 tsp chili powder

Place chicken breasts in slow cooker.
Sprinkle with cumin and chili powder and pour salsa over the top.

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

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. :)
