the big one

Baby girl has been complaining lately that she's still hungry after lunch and that I need to make her a bigger lunch.  So I really tried to make this lunchbox substantial and filling.

Pasta salad with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing and peas, corn & broccoli, soda crackers filled with pupkin seed butter & strawberry jam, a few organic cookies, Sun Rype fruit bites, a juice box, celery matchsticks, strawberries sprinkled with ground flax, 2 pieces of gardein chick'n strips and ketchup for dipping, and a "bat" sandwich (multigrain bread with vegan cheese). It's her new favourite.  Apparently she ate the "bat" for breakfast and then cried because she wanted another one. Also no pictured is a packet of maple oatmeal. 

Baby girl ate the entire lunch except a few lone spirals of pasta and the celery sticks, which she never eats anyways.  And then she refused to eat dinner because she wasn't hungry.

I absolutely LOVE your blog. I am a Vegetarian, and have tried many times to switch to Vegan, but it didn't last long. It is hard with a family that loves meat. I don't miss it, though. Do you have any tips for me, to make the leap into Veganism. Also, if you know of any coupons, as Vegan/Vegetarian products can be expensive, I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Keep up the great blog!
