A Look Inside The Lunchbox

GoodbynSigg2Lunchskins

The lunchbox can be by far a mom's biggest challenge and possibly, biggest mistake! 

I'm going to walk you through a great lunchbox day. I have ideas for vegan children, non-vegan children, raw foods, and much more. 

First off, you'll want to have a lunchpail, preferably one that is reusable (not a brown bag). 
Second, you will have to get a thermos that is insulating. 
Finally, you will also want to stop buying Ziplock bags and get some reusable ones. This is the new trend for 2009 and forward. Get with it :) 

note: I might as well require that you buy a Vitamix as well. If you haven't noticed I use it a lot. Each menu below will require a smoothie - so you might as well give in and get yourself a high performance blender
