I was even super nice and took a progress pic to avoid any confusion while you are rolling these pups up:

I will be munching on other things this week as well… not just really great and tasty chicken. 

lunchbox-7

I have a side salad with romaine, cucumber and cherry tomatoes to eat with the lunch as well. My breakfast is the usual, it just doesn’t get old for me!

1/3 cup of old fashioned oats
1 tbsp of chia seeds
1 heaping tbsp of natural peanut butter
diced apple (about 1/2 a cup)
water
I heat all these ingredients in the microwave for about a minute and thirty seconds. 

My snacks include a hardboiled egg, sugar snap peas, the remainder of my apple from breakfast, cherries and a Kind Bar. I’m very excited about this new-to-me Kind Bar flavor, Madagascar Vanilla Almond. I bought this flavor by accident, realized it was super delicious and THEN realized it only had 4 grams of sugar, naturally, no gross sugar substitutes! It was a happy accident. 

What’s in your lunchbox this week?
