Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.
My kids may later say I told them to clean up their room too often or that I didn't listen intensely to every word they uttered, but they can't say I didn't pack enough superfoods in their lunches. Don't even try, kids! This week's lunch buys me a year of credits on this front.

This salad is a mash-up of poached tuna, Romanesco broccoli, potatoes, kale, and Roberta's roasted garlic dressing (secret ingredient: anchovies) -- superfood gold, no? Silver, perhaps -- gold if I'd added quinoa and salmon. For dessert, pretty Satsumas with unruly leaves. I left the leaves on for dramatic lunchbox unpacking at school.

Before starting Food52 with Merrill, I was a food writer and editor at the New York Times. I've written several books, including "Cooking for Mr. Latte" and "The Essential New York Times Cookbook." I played myself in "Julie & Julia" -- hope you didn't blink, or you may have missed the scene! I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Tad, and twins, Walker and Addison.
