If you have been hanging around here for any length of time, you will no doubt know that I have no less that a great affection for food. Savory or sweet, healthy or not-so-much, it's all good. However, I do have one area in the sustenance realm that I cannot seem to grasp with any amount of dignity.
This meal is such a mind-boggler to me because it isn't meant to be huge and praiseworthy, like it's counterpart, Dinner, yet it isn't meant to be quite as simple and quick as the "get-your-day- movin" Breakfast (which, I admit, rarely even exists for me).
I have found that I love to eat lunch out, but my pocketbook AND my lovehandles would rather I didn't. So I moved right along into the over-processed insanely high carb world for my kidlets. You know, the world which consists mainly of mac-n-cheese, popcorn chicken from a bag and PB&J's? Well, that isn't working out either because I feel bad.
Their little bodies are growing and I don't want to be stuffing them full of garbage for even one meal. In addition, I don't want them to develop bad habits that they will have to break once they are grown up and their cholesterol test comes back too high.
SOOOOO, all of that to say, what are you feeding your kids for lunch that doesn't take a year to prepare? I would love to have the convenience of processed foods with the nutrition of a home-grown garden salad. Too lofty?
Ok, nevermind. Just tell me what you eat. Please. There are children involved here. Thank you kindly. :)
