School is back in session! As with every school year, I make a very strong effort to bring my lunch every day. Okay, four of the five days. Maybe three. Because driving from school to school is a regular part of my day, it is way too easy to pull into a quick serve place and grab lunch. I have been know to eat Chipotle several times in a week. Not good for the wallet, or the waistline.
Along with bringing my lunch, I’m also trying to incorporate more vegetables into it. It doesn’t take much time to break off a couple broccoli florets, slice some zucchini, and throw in a few cherry tomatoes and carrot sticks into a container. If I’m feeling really motivated, I’ll toss together a salad. My new favorite dressing is this homemade buttermilk ranch, with lots of fresh lemon zest. Eating veggies is a lot more fun with this dressing to dip them in.
Oh, and keep your eyes peeled on this site! I’m giving away a little lunch set, which includes a cute lunch bag and a salad/sandwich container! Click here to enter.
