Packing A Healthy Lunchbox

With the kids going back to school, packing lunches is in full swing in our house. One staple product in every bag every single day is the juice box. It seems a no-brainer that juice is healthy and the perfect choice to pack in my son’s lunchbox. But, is it really?

Am I making a choice not to really question whether this is the best choice simply because they are so convenient? According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), a serving that is one hundred percent juice can be considered when tallying up your child’s recommended daily amount of vitamins like vitamin C. That means selecting the right product. Don’t get tricked into getting a juice “cocktail” that has added sugar.

My Soup Diet

Often, many people tend to gain weight during the colder months of winter. I have found a way to defeat the winter bulge. During this season of cold winds and snowstorms, there is nothing more comforting that getting cozy with a hot, bowl of soup. Keeping a layer of winter fat at bay is another benefit of a soup diet during those months when I tend to be less active outdoors.

Now, a soup diet doesn’t necessarily mean I only eat soup. It simply means soup is my main course usually for lunch and supper. I pair it with healthy sides. I keep breakfast light and always feature a warm, hot, yummy drink to get me started for the day.

There are no more results.
