The lunches are in. Behold the first batch.

From Betsy: Quinoa salad with parsley, carrot and black beans with lemon vinaigrette (all bought in bulk and organic); red pepper slices; one golden delicious apple; Tings Crunchy Corn sticks, baked and natural; one thermos of organic soy milk.

From Kate: Inspired by Lunchables—make your own parfait! Vanilla yogurt; carob chips; a gummy bear; mixed berries; chopped almonds; plain oat granola.

From Tanya: Rice noodle stir-fry made of rice vermicelli, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, peas, and half a pound of ground turkey, cooked in a bit of soy sauce, vinegar, and Chinese cooking wine; sliced apple (pretty much the only local fruit available in Vancouver right now); a piece of banana bread (not so local, but delicious).

From Sorlynn: Two whole wheat mini bagels with low-fat organic cream cheese; an organic hard-boiled egg (I put it in a bunny-shaped mold that is hard to make out); grapes and organic blackberries; organic baby carrot fingers with black olive nails; purified water in a Klean Kanteen.

From Brendan: One citrus herb roasted organic chicken wrap; one low-fat, low-calorie blue cheese garden variety salad with organic dried cranberries and fresh avocado; five slices of apple; one organic flax seed, quick oat cranberry "cookie"; one organic ginger ale (not pictured).

Note: While the contest is now over, you can still check out our five winners here.

From Abigail: Hummus with Barbara's Shredded spoonfuls; organic carrots; one organic applesauce cup; chocolate chip cookies; one chocolate milk.
