organic salad w/lettuce, cabbage, mixed greens, carrots, golden and Chioggia beets, purple broccoli;
sunflower seeds, hemp hearts, dried raisin and berry mix, Raspberry vinaigrette dressing
To keep my dry add-ins dry, I put them in an air-tight Mini Dipper. Instead of my usual raisins, I tossed in an antioxidant mix with golden raisins, goji berries, and something else, from one of my monthly foodie boxes.
The salt for the cucumber is in a small sauce box (shown in top photo.)
I was eager to use my new 3-D rabbit veggie cutter. You have to cut your thicknesses fairly accurately to get the pieces to fit together, but they come out super cute! To add to the fanciness, I used a mini flower cutter on some carrot coins and beets. The yellow beet blackened a bit overnight (booo!) so the bunny's face and ears are discolored. Tasted fine though.

Since we went gluten-free, she went from loving bread to avoiding it. But she is more likely to eat it if I cut her sandwiches into small shapes. So I used the FunBites Cube It to make nice little square-wiches. Clearly she hated them...
My triangle muffin cup came imported from eBay, and I use them a lot for her lunches, since I have a stash of clean ones, and don't have to worry about not having one of the ones I want for Z's lunch theme.
The rest of her meal is leftovers from a healthy buffet we went to the day before, at a natural grocery and deli. Yummy stuff!
