Lunch

The great thing about lunch is that it can go in any direction. Lunch is the day's refueling session, a culinary time-out that lets you relax over a meal before getting back to the grind. So enjoy it! Yes, sandwiches are great (who doesn't love a meatball sub or gooey grilled cheese) but soup can be just as satisfying (homemade chicken noodle, perhaps, or a hearty bowl of chili?). Or pick a salad - with all of the specialty greens available these days, you can get a lot fancier than just a Cobb or Caesar. The whole point of lunch is to take a break - so do yourself a favor and eat something you like. That goes for kids, too. When you're searching for healthy lunch recipes and ideas, think about getting outside the usual "chips and a sandwich" box. There are lots of quick ways to pack their lunchboxes full of unusual items.
