For my lunch this week, I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup. I used a soup starter kit and added extra frozen mixed veggies and chicken. I love soup, but The Husband doesn't consider it a meal so it makes a good lunch option for me. Combined with sliced apples and a string cheese, it makes a great warm lunch in my cold office.
For H, I kind of feel like I am in a lunch rut. I was browsing the lunch boxes from 100 Day of Real Food, and I was feeling kind of bad about her lunches not being more "whole food." I struggle with balancing feeding her good food, what she will eat, and the amount of time that I have to source and prepare food. Following sites like the Food Babe and 100 Days of Real Food is inspiring, but I lack the time and energy it takes to make my own pizza dough from whole wheat flour. Oh, and I like cheeseburgers and fries a lot.
I am doing my best to provide her with healthy options, but still struggle with getting enough veggies into her. Maybe I need to try green smoothies? Although I don't really see myself having time to do that during the week, so maybe just on the weekends. But is that even doing anything?
