Blooming Tuesday: Blue Avocado Lunch Tote Giveaway

First off, this is the last Blooming Tuesday blog I’ll be writing, as my position at Mothering has been discontinued. However, you can still hang with me on Twitter @candacewalsh, on facebook (friend me), and at the Huffington Post. I’ll be the new managing editor at My Healing Kitchen starting next week.

Now on to the topic at hand…

You pack your children’s lunches lovingly each morning (I know we do) but do you give the same care and attention to your own midday meal? It has taken me years to snap to adding my lunch bag to the queue on the kitchen counter.

How empowering–to open my lunch bag and find items perfect for me–because I chose them. You might be wondering if I write myself a little love note on the napkin, but no, I’m not that far gone.

Lately, my lunch bag includes: a Dr. Praeger’s spinach pancake, a grapefruit, a Stanley stainless steel bottle of juice from my morning veggie/fruit batch*, and a red pepper with a container of Tribe hummus. I especially love their chipotle and red pepper flavors. I smear the hummus on big slabs of the fresh, crunchy red pepper…yum! Instead of eating everything at once, I tend to have small eating occasions all day long–per dietician Ashley Koff’s recommendation.

Today, my lunch stuff was thrown in a shopping bag, because I was in that much of a rush. However, wouldn’t it have been much better to avail of this beautiful Blue Avocado lunch tote? Only $20…such a nice price point.

It’s not bulky, but it keeps items hot or cold for 3 whole hours! It’s collapsible, PVC-free and made from 50% REPREVE recycled fibers. And it’s so darn cute. SOMEONE is going to win this thing and I have to say, that person is very lucky because this tote is adorable, practical and chic.

So here’s how you enter to win the contest:

Leave a comment below. Extra credit: tell me all about your favorite packed lunches.

Thanks! xox

PS: Here’s my juicer-juice recipe:

3 carrots, 1/2 small beet, 1/2 green apple, 1/2 lemon whole lemon, chunks of turmeric, ginger and burdock root, 3 stalks celery, 1/3 of a cucumber, 1/3 of a fennel bulb. It’s WONDERFUL and yummy, too.
