This Back to School Season make the mindshift from nutrition to habits.
It can be hard to think about habits in the Back to School Season when there’s so much pressure to think about nutrition. And about the picture-perfect lunch. Our parents certainly didn’t face this problem. My mother stored three kinds of sandwiches in the freezer: PB&J, Cheese, and another kind which I obviously never chose because I can’t remember what it was. Every morning, she pulled one of these delicacies out of the freezer, popped it in our bag and we were good to go.
But here we are in August. This is the month when, it seems to me, that the Internet becomes a swirling, dare I say cesspool, of blog posts on school lunches. 21, 149, 3005 lunch ideas that are healthy! That your kids will eat! That are easy!
The following blog posts all talk about how to implement the habits approach because I hope to inspire the world to catch the habitude!
