    My biggest struggle is trying to get lunch together when I am also trying to get ready for work. Planning ahead would help me out so much.

  2. says

    My biggest struggle with lunch hour is that I homeschool three kids, ages 11, 9, and 5. It’s hard to find the time to stop and prepare a lunch, one that’s semi-healthy, but affordable, that everyone likes! (my oldest has an aversion to cheese and dairy products, I am highly sensitive to gluten) Plus, I have to prepare a lunch everyday for my husband to take to work! I love your dinner cookbook and use it quite often, so I’ve been wanting this cookbook for some time now! :) Thanks for the chance to win! :)

    I can’t wait to see whats in the cookbook. Hubby and I have on the go jobs so this would be great so we can eat on the go. Also we wont have to go through the fast food line and spend money and calories

  4. Wendi says

    My biggest struggle is finding a variety of healthy foods for myself and my kids (and hubby on the weekend) we seem to get in a rut all the time with lunch…I am pretty tired of it. I am wanting to jazz up the kds lunches for school this year too/

  5. Darla says

    Getting lunch ready in a decent amount of time! When I go to fix lunch the bay wants to nurse, one of my other boys needs help in the bathroom or I am playing ref between my 3 year old twins! :)

  6. Cindy B. says

    My biggest struggle is finding something quick and easy that I wouldn’t have to go to the store to pick up.

  7. Jackie says

    I pack my husbands lunch every day and get tired of packing the same types of sandwiches

  8. miriam mendoza says

    the hardest thing is to try to make something my five kidos and husband will like with a budget and trying to be creative and not have the same meals over and over

  9. Christin Graff says

    My biggest challenge this Summer has been with 3 teenagers and a 4 year old having varying sleep schedules! We have been on an every man for themselves brunch/ lunchtime routine (?) for at least the last month of Summer vacation (4 year old excepting) .

  10. Joanne Carpenter says

    My biggest lunch hour struggle is….finding something quick and healthy to serve that my young & picky children will actually eat.

  11. Jennifer Langley says

    I’m already a fb fan! I hate giving my son deli meat but that’s all he seems to want. Don’t know how to get him hooked on anything else.

  12. Joyce Bland says

    My family is all on a different schedule which makes it difficult to prepare something for everyone. Also, trying to stick to a budget is not as easy with everyone on different schedules.

  13. Lorraine Smith says

    my biggest challenge is coming up with new and fun ideas. Seems like I’m also making the same basic lunches for my kids.

  14. says

    LOVE your site! Glad I found it thanks to Budget Saavy Diva!! My biggest lunch challenge is finding something to eat that is fast, easy to make, and reasonably priced!!!

  15. erika plodzien says

    Finding good vegetarian alternatives. :) I am vegetarian and my family only eats meat 3 times a week. Most vegetarian recipes have ingredients that I’ve never heard of and/or are hard to find. I would think that staying under $5 would be easier without the meat element.
