Pretty (Yummy!) Salads for Mama!

We are visual eaters, and a lunch full of real colors is amazingly appetizing! The more, the better! I love staring at a rainbow when I eat.

Organic kale chips, homemade GF "Oreos," dried orange slices, organic salad (mixed greens,
cherry tomatoes, carrots, hemp hearts, chia and sunflower seeds, raisins, rosemary vinaigrette)
12/16/13 - I was in a hurry with this lunch, so just threw everything in. Still yummy, even if it isn't covered in carrot flowers!

Homemade "Whoopie Pies" (Enjoy Life Gingerbread Spice Cookies and Ricemallow Creme,)  Hail Merry macaroon, Naturebox Cinnamon Spice Almonds, Sweet Cinnamon Good Beans, coconut chips, salad (Fresh Express Veggie Lovers salad mix, strawberries, blueberries, apples, celery, rosemary vinaigrette, chia and sunflower seeds, hemp hearts, raisins)
3/31/14 - I had a bunch of leftovers from my Fresh Express Salad event, so I lumped them all together into a salad! (Leftover chopped strawberries, apples, celery, and blueberries, plus the Fresh Express 50/50 Salad Mix.)

Justin's Dark PB Cup, Cocomel, vegan caramel, organic apples, PBCo Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB, salad (Fresh Express 50/50 mix, organic carrots, tomatoes, hemp hearts, chia and sunflower seeds, raisins, rosemary vinaigrette)
4/14/14 - Another quick salad, with some of my favorite treats on the side! Dairy-free candy (NOM!) and apples dipped in Peanut Butter Co Cinnamon Raisin Swirl. My favorite!

Dolmas, organic apples, pumpkin seed butter, chocolate mint cremes,
salad (Fresh Express 50/50 Mix, organic tomatoes, carrots, seeds, raisins, rosemary vinaigrette)
4/16/14 - I had time to arrange some cut carrots and tomatoes into an easy garden scene for this lunch. So many pretty colors!

I had bought a can of pre-made Dolmas from Trader Joe's, so packed some in my lunch. Weird, but I'd eat again.

Organic salad (spinach, watermelon radish, carrots, tomatoes, hemp hearts, chia and sunflower seeds,
raisins, rosemary vinaigrette,) vegan Ranch kale chips, organic apples, pumpkin seed butter
4/17/14 - Another pretty salad.

Justin's Dark Chocolate PB Cup, candied ginger, dairy-free chocolate Cocomel, organic hummus and
sweet peppers, organic salad (spinach, strawberries, carrots, assorted seeds, raisins, rosemary vinaigrette) 
4/18/14 - I love strawberry and spinach salads! Yum!

Tools of the Trade


  1. What are those small carrot shaping tools called? It looks fun!

    1. Veggie cutters. You can search "flower veggie cutter" on amazon... maybe toss in the word "bento" if the results are too varied...


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
