She shares some ideas on how to feed your family practical, economical and tasty lunches.
Some key things I learned from her:
1. We throw out 20 million plastic sandwich bags per day. WHOA!
2. If we keep eating and consuming at the current status quo, 1 in 3 adults will have diabetes at some time in their life. Double WHOA!
3. You can make some small adjustments to the old favorites, by making a few smarter choices at the grocery store (ie: whole fruit spreads instead of jam with high fructose syrup or use whole wheat pasta instead of regular)
4. How to use leftover dinners for the next days lunch creatively
