School (and Work) Lunch Ideas

School (and Work) Lunch Ideas

My kids start school next week so I thought it would be fun to involve them in this week’s blog.  I asked them to share with me some of their favorite school lunches (besides the chicken fingers in the cafeteria at school). We do our best to encourage variety and balance but never impose hard restrictions. I’m under the belief that would only do more harm then good. Check out this blog for some favorite lunch food from a kids perspective.

Mini Taco Sliders (in Pita Pocket)

Choosing to be healthy, using healthier ingredients, doesn’t have to break the bank.   Plus, there is absolutely no need for fancy.  I used to think that being a good cook, or a good nutrition coach, meant I needed to use exotic ingredients, and have fancy meals to share with clients and followers.  What I’ve discovered is that most people are just trying to do the best with what they have, with whatever situation they are in.  Enter these burgers our whole family loves and perhaps yours will too. As always, change it up the way you like it and have some fun!

Mindful Eating

Mindful Eating

Somewhere, someone, is rolling their eyes at the term - Mindful Eating.  Look, I know meditation and mindfulness is a tough sell sometimes, but that’s not even what I’m selling here.  In fact, I’m not selling anything.  I’m sharing a fact.  Mindful eating can be the beginning step to a healthier body and/or weight loss, should that be the goal.
