I haven't done one of these in a while, and today's menu is pretty stellar: mango avocado salad with chickpeas for lunch, strawberries and walnuts for my mid morning snack, veggies with homemade hummus for the afternoon and an apple to fill in any corners. My breakfast this morning was watermelon so that takes care… Read More Today’s Lunch Bag 7/25/2017
I decided I really shouldn’t call it “Today’s Menu” when breakfast and supper aren’t pictured. I’m out of “hand” fruit (apples, oranges, pears, bananas) so I will just have to suffer through having cut up mango for my afternoon snack.

I’m not going to recap it but it certainly brought a smile to my face as I was chopping veggies for today’s menu. I hope this idea catches on! My salad today… Read More Today’s Menu 5/8/2017
Today was pizza day at work, and my pizza was a hit! I’m so happy about this! “Pizza day” is when a few co-workers and I bring frozen pizzas that we cook in a “Pizza Pizzaz” machine for lunch. We started this last year before I became a nutritarian, and since then I have spent… Read More Pizza Update: It’s A Hit!
