  1. Kendra says

    my biggest lunchtime struggle is finding simple, quick, affordable meals for my husband, who needs an abnormally high amount of protein in his diet. I love yuo cookbooks and would love a copy of the breakfast/lunch book!

  2. says

    My biggest lunchtime struggle is that my child is enamored with Lunchables, even though they are expensive and unhealthy! Most of the other kids at school bring them, so alternatives are a tough sell.

  3. Amy Lewis says

    My biggest lunchtime struggle is coming upbeat fun lunches for my kids to take to school and for me to pack for work. I end with Lunchables for kids and fast food for me in a rush. That doesn’t save us $ and not very healthy.

  4. Shanna says

    My biggest struggle is finding something quick, easy, and different. I feel like we eat the same things over and over again! My husband always takes our leftovers, so the kids and I need something good that can be thrown togather quickly after a long morning of homeschooling!

  5. Heather Bryan says

    I struggle with coming up with creative ideas for school lunches. I don’t want to send the same thing everyday.

  6. says

    My major struggle is with my husband’s lunches. I always make him a sandwich, chips and cookies. I will try to throw in some fruit but sometimes he doesn’t eat it. lol I know that he is fine with eating the same thing but I feel bad. I would love easy and affordable meals for him…that are also healthy.

    I would love for to have your cookbook.

  7. Kelly says

    The biggest struggle I have is dealing with a very picky eater. Plus, I lose a little creativity when I run out of ideas to offer her.

  8. Marcie says

    My kids went back to school this week. My lunch challenge is making 3 lunches for 3 kids with very different tastes. Not to mention have 2 teenage boys in high school it’s tough to fix them a lunch with enough in it to keep them going all the way to supper time.

  9. Wendy Wilber says

    While neither the 11 year old or I are picky, I tend to fall back on the ‘same ol’, same ol’ for lunches for her. She’s not a sandwich eater. I thinking 6th grade could be ‘The Year of the Pasta Salad’. LOL! Help!!

  10. BJMarley says

    My biggest struggle is finding something that will still have good texture and flavor after sitting in a lunch box for hours. Oh, and actually making something to take to work so I can eat something nutritious.

  11. Dana Thomas says

    My biggest struggle is finding quick ideas for lunch. When my kids are hungry, they are hungry then and don’t want to wait…like most kiddos! :) With 5 kids it get expensive to get take out and its usually unhealthy anyways!

  12. Josefina Salinas says

    I enjoy anything that makes my life easier, I love to cook and sometimes I do not have many igredients but I usualy end up making something with what I have!!! Thanks for good ideas !!! Love it!

  13. amy m says

    My biggest struggle with lunches is avoiding getting stuck in a “rut” with the lunches I pack for my kids!!

  14. Brianne K says

    My biggest struggle with lunch is having the motivation to make anything. We usually skip lunch because I don’t feel like making something involved.

  15. Jessica says

    I struggle with picky eaters. My husband is super picky and my daughter is 2 and is going through a pink foods phase.

  16. Missy says

    I guess I’m not alone in wanting something besides the same two or three sandwiches for my kids’ school lunches every day! I’m out of creative ideas, so your cookbook sounds like just what I need!
