With school starting, I’ve been having a lot of conversations about what to put in our kid’s lunch boxes. This is a very popular topic at the moment. In fact, last week I participated in something called the Lunch Revolution Blog Party hosted on Notes From the Cookie Jar. The Lunch Revolution Blog Party was an opportunity for Food Bloggers to come together from far and wide, offering up their best Lunch Box ideas and recipes. Take a minute to go to Notes From the Cookie Jar and see some of the great ideas for yourself. Believe it or not, there are actually lots of delicious, fresh and EASY lunches out there that don’t involve peeling the top off a compartmentalized box of processed meat. It’s true.
Because there is such a desire to expand our lunch box repertoire (and seeing as I needed a few new ideas myself) I decided to add The Lunch Box Loop page to Out of the Box Food. On The Lunch Box Loop, we can collaboratively share fresh, simple recipes and keep each other “in the loop” with new Lunch Box ideas. I’ll post ideas as I come up with them for my boys school lunches, and I hope you’ll send me your suggestions as well. There is a place on the bottom of the page to submit your fresh and easy ideas; all of which will be much appreciated by all Out of the Box Food readers. No need to make it fancy, just pop an idea over. But if you’re feeling wild and want to spice it up feel free to submit a recipe, add a photo, whatever you want. However you submit it, we will appreciate it!
So please check out our new page HERE, and check back often as I will update with new ideas as they come in. Our weekly posts will continue to be about bringing processed food Out of the Box, but now in addition you’ll be able to find updated lunch box ideas on The Lunch Box Loop page. Be sure to check out next week’s post where we will deconstruct “Fruit” Roll ups. Until next week…
