Connor's Lunch Box

While at Whole Foods getting all the fun new food to go into Connor's lunch box for school, I discovered this new and "clean" lunch box. I hated putting all of his organic food into a grody 'ol plastic (probably full of lead) junky old lunch box. I hate to sound so dramatic, but it did make me feel like the food that was going in was getting contaminated by the grodiness of it. This new lunch box is safe and has a ton of room. I do tend to over stuff Connor's lunch box anyway, so now it doesn't get all smooshed in the process. He has a fascination with other countries so this lunch box was perfect for him.

While talking about his new lunch box I figured I should at least mention what I put into it. Connor is on a low protein diet because of his genetics. Because of this, and because he is sooo darn skinny, I insist the school give him access to food every two hours.

Connor's lunch box:
1 huge organic grapefruit (he loves these things!)
1 organic nectarine
1 organic blueberry dried fruit
1 bag of gfcf barbq chips (whole foods brand)
1 bag of pizza flavored gfcf bread sticks (glutino brand)
1 baggie of raw organic pistachios
1 baggie of organic baby carrots
1 raw food bar (spirulina)
1 juice box (R.W. Knudsen Lemonade)

I know, I know, where's the pb and j?

I would love some suggestions...

My husband has a friend at work who is really interested in the diet you have Connor on for her daughter. I am sending her your blog info. Thank you for providing such a great resource. :-)

What a DELICIOUS lunch! If I was sitting next to Connor I'd be asking him to trade me every single thing in his lunch! Love the cute lunchbox too!

I live in North NJ and my closest Whole Foods is almost an hour away. I found this little gem of a natural foods store in a litle town up here and today I ran sacked it. I bought some Gluten Free Tapioca flour bread. Gonna test it on the boy tomorrow. I am new to GFCF. Thank you for this blog, I find it really helpful and will be reading it for weeks. lol
