Supermarket bought bliss balls are generally full of preservatives and refined sugar. Or where not with refined sugar still over 50% sugar with the high level of dried fruits. You can make bliss balls that are higher in fat and lower in sugar which is my preference but these are generally […]
I’ve been experimenting for a while for a nut free, grain free, dairy free “muesli” bar that will hold together for the school lunches. This is the current best attempt so far. The challenges are that what holds most bars together is the grains and loads of sugar plus they’re […]
1. How do you keep the food fresh for lunch?
A common question I get asked is how to keep the food fresh for Dom’s lunches. One thing to remember is that many adults and children are having chicken (or other type of meat) sandwiches and keeping these in their bags without any […]
Hey everyone – so today is a day when I’m getting back on track with being organised and pre-prepared. There have been a lot of things going on and what with Dom being sick and then us going overseas and then back again it all got a teeny bit […]
Coming up with varied, balanced, quick and easy lunch box meals that children will actually eat is a daily challenge for parents around the world. And when by necessity or because of dietary preference you’re trying to avoid all processed foods as well as grains, gluten, dairy and/or nuts then […]
Another day and another Paleo PlanetBox Lunch Box for Chef Dom:
- Beef Mince with Red & Yellow Capsicums
- Sweet Potato (Kumara) Fries with Homemade Mayo
- Grapes & Strawberries
- Hard boiled eggs & Olives
- Cocoa & Kumara Bliss Ball.
The beef mince mixture is fairly self explanatory. For the sweet potato fries […]
So I was going to say with this post “Here’s Chef Dom’s Lunchbox – it only took 5 minutes to put together the night before using leftovers and fruit and kept in fridge overnight to make for nice cool lunchbox and an easy morning.” But then I read the sentence […]
What’s for lunch for you today?
In this Chef Dom lunchbox we’ve got:
- Zoodles (Spiralised Zucchini) with Bacon (leftover dinner)
- Beetroot & Haloumi Cheese
- Olives & Cherry Tomatoes Kebabs
- Plum Bliss Ball (Valentines Day leftover).
Dom does love grapes but we’re moving away from them as a standard because they’re higher […]
How’s your week going? If you’re looking at stainless steel lunch boxes here’s another to consider. It’s a LunchBots lunch box. We love this one as well as the Planetbox. They have different pros and cons. I’ll do a post on that as soon as I get a spare moment […]
Another Chef Dom lunch in his PlanetBox:
Interested to know if many of you make your own lunches?! Comment below “buy” or “make”. I know when I was working in an office I used to either buy it or more often just not eat any and keep working through…
One thing I […]
If you have children what’s their most favourite lunchbox item – the thing you just know they will always eat? If it’s a fruit then put that down but let us know what is their favourite non-fruit item too. For Dom it would be olives (as well as any fruit).
Chef Dom’s real food lunchbox today – just a mix of leftovers from dinner last night and trying something new with the apples – coating them in cinnamon – great little trick as tastes yum and hides any slight browning that might be going on with the apples by morning. This […]
One of Chef Dom’s lunches from a week ago:
- Roasted Cauliflower
- Grapes & Feijoas
- Sausages & Lettuce (Free range organic beef meat)
- Home-made Mayo
- Chocolate Bliss Ball
Wondering who else has been enjoying not having to make school lunch boxes this holidays? I kind of have a love-hate relationship with […]

Good morning everyone! Hope you’ve had a great weekend. I’m feeling renewed enthusiasm for getting back to some basics of real food after attending the Pete Evans event yesterday.
The focus was very much on the fundamentals – regular home preparation and consumption of bone broths (aka great stocks), fermented foods […]
Recently I came across a great blog by Kelly, an Australian Mum. The blog is called Be A Fun Mum and it’s filled to overflowing with brilliant ideas for things to do with children. More than anything though the blog is about appreciating the small things in life and particularly […]
I just love Michelle Tam’s blog Nom Nom Paleo www.nomnompaleo.com and her book of the same name. Her lunchbox ideas are fantastic.
Today we were inspired by Michelle to come up with these Salmon Zucchini “Sushi” Rolls for Chef Dom’s lunchbox. They’re fairly easy to do – use a […]
\What are you thinking of for the lunchbox tomorrow?
I’m working on getting a more systemised approach going because – as it’s all well and good to be creative with food – I think lunch boxes should probably be more of a grab and go deal. Usually most of what Dom […]
