While I am quite creative in the kitchen, when it comes to packing Journey’s lunch my ideas fall flat. It’s just the beginning of October and she’s already getting bored with what’s in her lunchbox. I added a few new hot lunch options into the mix, but how many times can I do pasta? Then I came across this week’s find…
Written by mom and dietician Katie Sullivan Morford, The Best Lunch Box Ever is chock full of healthy palette pleasing lunch recipes like BLT Roll-ups, Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese, Peanut Butter Pancakes and Crispy Applewiches. The book also has useful information on making healthier version of lunchbox favs as well as nutritional advice. It also contains helpful tips on how to get organized, what types of foods to keep on hand and how to plan ahead. And most of these recipes will work in your lunchbox too!
I’m going to let Journey flip through the book and decide what recipes she would like to try. I’m sure the vivid photographs will get her excited about her lunchbox makeover.
While I don’t think I’ll ever be the mom that sends her kid to school with the perfectly packed bento box, this book has definitely given me some great ideas on how to step up my lunchbox game.
