Lunchbox # 31 – Steamed Veggies, Turkey and Pasta Salad, Grapes, Cheese & Crackers

Lunchbox # 31 (for 4 year old girl)

Coffee and Vanilla

  • salad made of  pasta, seasonal mixed baby leaves, cherry tomatoes (halved), turkey breast slices (chopped), steamed baby corn, green beans and broccoli with a little bit of olive oil and reduced salt soy sauce in mini panda container
  • mixed grapes in silicone muffin case
  • Babybel cheese and mini crackers in silicone muffin case
  • spork
  • 250 ml plum & pomegranate fruit tea in a bottle (not pictured)
  • single green apple wipe (not pictured)
  • mini tissue package (not pictured)

Everything closed in a lunchbox with a strap, placed together with fruit shaped food chillers in a plastic zip bag.

  • I used leftover pasta from previous day. I steamed veggies in a small covered pot with few table spoons of water until soft but still crunchy, then added a little bit of olive oil, stirred and placed veggies in a container that was stored overnight in the fridge. In the morning I just added pasta, leaves, cherry tomatoes and turkey breast.
  • My daughter chosen ingredients for her lunchbox salad herself in the shop yesterday, this way I’m sure she will eat it. But we bought too much for one lunchbox so I made few similar portions of veggies and placed them in the freezer so next time I just need to steam them the night before.

    I got those containers in Japan Centre in London but they are also available on eBay.

  5. What a cute lunch! I’m sure your daughter will love it! My mom used to pack lunches like this for me in Korea, where it’s called “doh shi lak.” I packed one for my roommate who is in dental school on the day she took her board exams! You can check out the entry here.

  7. Damn, very nice website. I actually came across this on Yahoo, and I am stoked I did. I will definately be revisiting here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just absorbing as much info as I can at the moment.

    Thank You
