Lunchbox #125

Today, my preschooler's lunch featured (clockwise):
  • Fresh peppers, stuffed with leftover offal chili
  • Whole milk yoghurt with vanilla extract and honey
  • Salted almonds
  • Fresh honeydew melon (see the bento minicutters that made these cute melon flowers here)

  1. First off, I just started reading your blog and love it! You have given me so many wonderful meal ideas. I personally am cutting out artificial sweeteners and want to use natural sweeteners. I also don't want to feed to much into my sweet tooth..how do you find a happy balance? For example, in your yogurt, do you add a 1tsp or so of honey? Would love to hear your thoughts!

  2. I think that weaning off of a sweet tooth is a huge step - one way that I've managed it is by doing combinations of honey with a few drops of whole leaf stevia extract. Sometimes adding raspberry extract to whole milk yoghurt with a few drops of stevia has helped to quash the urge for something extra-desserty - it's similar to a Yoplait yoghurt taste, but not as artificially sweet or intense.

  3. Thanks for answering! What brand of whole leaf stevia extract do you buy?
