"Y" buy lunch when you can bring a bento!

"Y" is Ryan's lunch a bit small today?? Because all of the 1st grade classes are having a World Fair, where they will be presenting food from the country that they studied to the other classes.
Ryan's "Y" lunch: vanilla soy yogurt; yams; sauteed yellow squash; yellow bell pepper.

I contemplated making tofu yakitori, but I was already pretty swamped making vegan food for Ryan to have at the World Fair.
I supplied alternatives for Ryan's class' food from Greece...this time a small container of plain soy yogurt w/agave nectar. The class studying Japan is serving chicken ramen and green tea, so I packed a small container of ramen with just a little soy sauce & scallion. Another class is studying Brazil, and they're serving rice & beans and cherry soda (I'm guessing that's in place of grumichama or ponche, so that most kids will actually try it), so I made my rice cooker rice & beans, and bought a natural cherry soda and sent him with a water bottle 1/3 full of that. It turns out that all the food being served by the class studying Kenya is vegan, so no substitutions necessary there! And they're actually serving 3 items.
So anyhow, I figured Ryan will be quite stuffed between the World Fair food, his regular snack (which he made me pack anyways), and his lunch!

As for me, yesterday marked the halfway point of my 40 days of raw food:
7am- smoothie: 1 banana, 1/2 mango, 1/2 blood orange, 3 frozen strawberries, liquid DHA, water.
9:30am- small bowl of raisins, date pieces & sliced almonds.
12:30pm- salad: romaine, tomato, cucumber, olives.
3:30pm- a pickle.
5:30pm- watermelon & cantaloupe; 1/2 an avocado.
8pm- 2 sliced bananas topped with a little almond butter, agave nectar, & a sprinkle of grated coconut.
