My biggest lunch challenge is just deciding what to eat. It’s to the point that I’m hating lunchtime :-)

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

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/

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! :)

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

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) .

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.

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.

My biggest struggle with lunch is having time to make anything. Rush home from work, eat and go back!

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.
