Yesterday was our official back to school day. My girls were given their new school supplies (my almost two year old got her first all-her-own crayons and washable markers – she was thrilled). The day was spent coloring, doing math and reading, and making special treats.
And as we start making the transition to structured, busy school days and fall food, I realized that there are unique challenges to this season. For a mother keeping track of a lot of things at once, it can be challenging to keep a nourishing, well-rounded meal on the table at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some of us have little’s at home who need snacks, children at school who need packed lunches, and both or one of parents of the family working outside the home. And then there are us who work at home too, which adds it’s own challenges.
All to say, I think we can easily take a month of looking at this topic of “Nourishing Back to School Recipes”. I, as well as my contributors will be sharing recipes and strategies in how to make the back to school season a nourishing one too.
I will be sharing a lot of fun (and hopefully useful to you) recipes, and I am looking forward to my guest contributors posts too. I’d love for you to share specific topics you’d like me, or one of the contributors to cover related to this certain season.
And if you don’t have children in school? There are still going to be a lot of recipes and ideas that you will find helpful too.
On this same note, I will be hosting a different and separate “carnival” (like Pennywise Platter) on the 21st where all of you can share your ideas on the topic of “Nourishing Packable Meals”. My hope is for us to share our favorite recipes and ideas for packable lunches that are nourishing too. So often our lunches are composed of unhealthy foods. Please join in!
You can bookmark (or pin on pinterest) this post, as I will update this page to include links to all future posts on this topic.
I will be doing a monthly blog theme for the rest of the year, which I really look forward to. So stay tuned for more!
