The experiment today is that many people say cooking healthy is too expensive but those same people buy take out for lunch and go to Starbucks ever so often.

I pack my kids' lunches for school every day except on Sunday's when they pack their own. We do very easy and simple lunches but we do focus quite a bit on healthy food. Basically the lunch consists of peanut butter sandwiches, a granola bar (as a treat) and some fruit and raw veggies. Nothing… Continue reading Let’s talk about what we are feeding our children.
