When I was able to eat hot lunches at school, there were limited options. We ate the food that the kindly nuns made for us. Actually, I am pretty sure the nuns didn’t cook, but it was Catholic school, so you never know.
The point is, we didn’t have options.

When I put my husband in charge of getting the kids somewhere, I can generally expect for at least a handful of important things to be completely forgotten. Try as he might, he just doesn't run through any sort of mental checklist before he races out the door. In fact, he's done this ever since the twins were little tiny babies, often leaving the house without so much as a…Continue

Rajma or red kidney beans are a great source of cholesterol- lowering fibers.They are also packed with protein and essential minerals like potassium,manganese and iron.
This Rajma recipe is simple and very healthy.I have used little oil and more tomatoes which is a good source of lycopene and is good for kids.

School is starting next week, so it is time to start getting ready for lunch packing...bleck! Sorry, but I absolutely detest packing lunches...not sure why, but I do. One morning during the last school year, when I was packing Kate's lunch, I realized that most of the items I was putting in her lunch box were ridiculously processed. It's actually one of the reasons that I started this blog. I decided that I needed to do a better job of making sure that I feed my children healthier foods,…Continue
