Jake and I love creating these memories for our boys. It makes their eight-week summers seem a little less short!

Okay, back to the reason for this post...some great lunch box ideas from my blogging friends.

Chia puddings are a great, make-ahead breakfast. And I love that they are so versatile.
Why is it called 'warrior pudding'? Because, as my bag of organic whole chia seeds - tagline "Aztec Superfood" - explains: "The chia seed was eaten by Aztec for strength and was a main staple food along with corn and beans."
- 1/2 C chia seeds
- 2 C milk
- 1 T raw turbinado sugar
- ground cinnamon
- ground cardamom
- ground nutmeg
- ground ginger
Place all of the ingredients and let it soak overnight. Serve as you would oatmeal - with fresh berries or bananas. I topped mine with diced fresh strawberries and raw sliced almonds.
