Back to School Meals


The term, “back to school” sounds daunting.  No more vacations, lazy pool days, or late bedtimes.  It means schedules and cold and a lot more work.  This year is my first back-to-school experience as a mom.  My little buddy is starting preschool, and while I won’t need to pack lunches or send her off everyday just yet, the reality is setting in.  She’ll have her own life with her own teachers, friends and experiences.  It’s exciting, a little sad and definitely overwhelming.  And when I get overwhelmed, I plan obsessively.  It helps me feel more in control, even if it’s just the illusion of control.  Without a doubt, I always feel better after I plan our meals and grocery lists.  It feels good to know that we’ll have easy-to-make, healthy food on hand at all times.  It’s a big item to cross off my list, so I can focus on more important things like ladybug backpacks, field trips and being home alone a few mornings per week!

The best resource for back-to-school lunches has to be this FREE ebook of 30-minute meals.  All the meals are easy, healthy and kid-friendly.  It provides vegetarian and gluten-free options as well!



After downloading your ebook, make this Apple Mojito Chicken along with me…
