We have something to share with you.
The moms say it takes a village and they are right. School was about to start and a group of us were talking about the challenge facing us all – school lunch. I wanted my daughter to make her lunch the night before but all I heard was “Mom, what should I make, Mom, we don’t have any xxx(fill in the blank here), Mom, I’ll do it in the morning before school(we all know that won’t happen!). So my friend Anne started a facebook group where all the moms could post their suggestions – healthy ideas, snack ideas, breakfast, lunch, easy dinners. And then I read a post that smacked me in the face. Make a menu. Like they do at the public schools. That was TOO EASY.
OK, so who hates it when you have to pack your lunch every night? And you don’t know what to pack. Well, me and my mom made a menu of all the things I like and we posted it on the fridge. It tells me what to pack like a chicken caesar salad with chips and fruit and it’s so easy that you should go to your mom and ask her to make you one too.
We are now in week 4. This super easy plan is a complete GAME CHANGER. Create a word document, add pictures, dates to cross off and DONE. If I am traveling for work, life becomes even easier for my husband since there are no questions.
Nicole, you have changed the way we function so THANK YOU! The bonus – Nicole shared a photo of her pantry in our Facebook group. Super organized with clear stackable containers. So, of course, I had to do a quick Amazon search and buy them too. Now everyone can grab a KIND bar, a bag of dried apricots or Pirate’s Booty and get lunch ready super fast!
