Sometimes I have days, like today, when I struggle to have an original thought. I still need to work on living my healthy lifestyle and encourage others to do so as well. On days like these I look to the internet for inspiration and information. I caution you to do so with a scrutinizing eye. I’ve listed some helpful finds for you to click on along with a few thoughts of my own. I’m hoping to be full of original thoughts next time around but for now….here’s what I’ve got.
- Lunch time ideas – http://eatthis.menshealth.com/content/13-instant-lunches?article=6&page=1
Remember to get as many vegetables and fruits as you can. Make sure to add produce to the lunch menus that are clearly falling short here.

I found many delicious soup recipes here. I think soup is one of the most satisfying ,nutritious and complete meals you could have. This article has a nice variety. It’s a great way to get in many servings of vegetables and once you get the hang of it, you can modify the recipes to fit your taste and what you have in the house. My kids would eat soup everyday if they could, and that’s a very good thing.
