Real Food LUNCH BOX: Easter-Themed Lunch

I thought to share my Easter-Themed lunch box inspirations from this week’s lunches. Maybe it’s a bit silly but sometimes the little things bring the greatest joy — halfway through a potentially boring or long school day. So why not?! It’s the same types of foods I send ANYWAYS…I just threw in a bit of creativity.

And you can, too.

(Check out the devilled egg recipe at the bottom of the post.)

More carrots and eggs...

Carrots and eggs…

Naturally-dyed hard boiled eggs are easy to make and incredibly beautiful — there’s still time tonight 🙂 or over the weekend. They are the most wonderful thing for an Easter-Themed Lunch…

I use this concept to encourage vegetable AND hummus eating - doesn't it look cute?

Devilled Eggs - the ultimate Easter Lunch Box food

Easter-Themed Lunch Box Devilled Eggs — the ultimate

Easter -Themed Lunch Box Devilled Eggs

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp raw cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp finely minced onion (or fresh chives)
  • 3 Tbsp homemade mayonnaise
  • paprika, for sprinkling on finished eggs

Place eggs in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Turn heat off and leave covered 20 minutes or so. Place under a tap and run cold water over them for at least a minute. Once cooled, carefully peel UNDER the membrane surrounding eggs so it doesn’t peel off the egg white as well. Pat dry.

Cut eggs in half. Carefully scoop out the yolk and place in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Combine really well. Scoop the filling back into the egg white. Sprinkle with paprika. Perfect! Feed to hungry children.
