  3. Ohmygosh Tia.
    Can I be one of your kids? Haha. I love it so much!! :) What a neat idea. All those meals look delicious.
    I'm impressed that at a young age, your kids like healthy foods...kale, sushi, etc. That's amazing!! :)

  4. Tia! Please come make lunches at our house!!!

    I've been wondering- do you roll your own sushi or do you buy it locally? If you make it, would you ever consider posting a how-to? (You'd think with my parents owning a sushi place, I'd already know, but I don't!) I'd love to see how it's done.

  5. Cami- thank you love! they surprise me everyday but Adriana is our little health nut, she eats any and everything!

    lady Cherrio <3 we have tried rolling before but in times sake for her lunches, it's usually left over sushi from our favorite sushi restaurant or we buy it local and fresh, already made (it's eaten within 12 hour of purchase). Now, I do make the "bread" sushi! Day fifty three above, is two pieces of bread that I smushed between two plates until it was pretty flat and then I spread tuna salad on it, lined shredded carrots on next and rolled it carefully, then cut to make sushi. I could totally show how to do that as it is similar in the technique! :)

  6. you know, I really, really love these lunch posts. :)
