Left Over Lunches and a Move

Hi, yes, it is me and it has been so long since I posted :) 
I have been busy feeding my family but also planning a move and in the moment I am in between houses so please forgive me for not posting. Soon, we will be settled in the new house and I will have time to actually post my lunches and recipes again!

In the meantime, I wanted to show you an easy lunchbox put together solely with leftovers (moving means cleaning out the fridge ;)

This lunch I made for myself. It contains leftover veggie pizza, some leftover feta cheese, corn, cucumber and bean salad and a spear with left over baguette, butter and surimi. Easy and portable!

Tasterie Review - Allergy-Safe SnackBox

A couple of days ago, Tasterie sent me a one of their SnackBoxes to try and my family and I were immediately in love! 

Tasterie was founded by Lama Rimawi out of frustration with the lack of allergy-safe and great tasting food products.
"I was a pediatrician and a mom of a toddler, and a newborn that had multiple food allergies. It was simply too tiring to keep finding find food that I could introduce him to, or feed myself (while I breast-fed)."
There are many allergy-free options you can choose from and also simply a healthy snack or food box if your family has no allergies.

TasterieBox choices include:

Top 8 Allergen-free
gluten, dairy & casein-free
dairy & egg-free
dairy & soy-free
peanut & treenut-free
healthy & nutritious

I liked the variety of products and felt my kids were more inclined to try something when they had a choice of snack to pick. Since I have four kids it is sometimes hard to try new specialty products since I never know if they like it and therefore actually eat it which can be pricey at often $5 or $6 bags of snacks. This way we found many new favorites and everyone had fun trying something!

We loved the Kettle Corn Popcorn so much we shared it with our extended family. It is egg and dairy free and Vegan and the best Kettle Corn Popcorn we ever had. My kids also loved both Somersaults products and the Enjoy Life Mountain Mix! I loved the dried Mangos, Hummus and Falafel Chips! I am glad we got to try so many different and new foods!

This is one of the lunches I made with the Tasterie Box. It has Tasterie's Somersaults sunflower seed crunchy nuggets, apples, pretztels, raisins and a fun Sunbutter and Honey healthy kid sandwich - all nut free :)

Overall, I love the choice between the Signature and SnackBox, the variety of different allergy-free snacks and foods and the price which is lower then other health food boxes. Most products were only 1 or 2 servings each but as mentioned above I have no problem letting everyone try and purchasing the product in full size at my local health food store once everyone tried. Also, if you are buying the box for one member of your family with allergies the snacks would be just perfect.
