What is in your lunchbox?

What is in your lunchbox today?  I have started to take a real look at the food I have been eating and serving.  I can’t eat the same foods I did when I was a much younger “me”.  So, I am focusing on “real foods”.  Ones that are as close to the original source as possible. That includes discovering new veggies (Brussell sprouts with balsamic vinegar grilled are yummy- who knew?) and fruits (I am loving apricots these days!)  Plus adding at my doctors insistence dairy products .. including milk and yogurt. ( I never was much of a milk drinker, but I am learning to use it in smoothies and coffee.)  And, although I prefer non-meat options I have been eating protein with meat and fish to help me be healthy and curb hunger!

Many families who follow SIGNING FAMILIES   have asked me to post words in American Sign Language which are food related.  So, here you go.. foods that help keep us healthy!

    I love this, Louise! Thanks for teaching me and the kids how to sign what we want to eat! The pictures and children are SO beautiful!
    P.S. My doctor has ordered more dairy and calcium as well! I’ll be signing “Yogurt” daily!! : )
