Oh! The Horror!
Next thing you know I'm going to be eating acai berries, or doing a cleanse, or [shudder] becoming a vegetarian.
The fact of the matter is this: a handful of spinach and some cut up vegetables (and - peering - some nachos? And candied nuts?) is easier to throw together than anything else I can find on a regular basis. And - since I'm gifted at using salad as a garbage disposal for all manner of other foods - it's much easier to remember to throw a box of spinach leaves into the grocery cart while all three kids dance and yell and jump around like lunatics around me than it is to actually plan lunches.
Lunches for me, that is. For the kids? I go all out.
