Lunch Ideas

It is that time of year again, kids are in school, you’re running late for work, and then you get home tired.

How do you keep the kids eating a healthy lunch that is fun and healthy? Some of these ideas also allows a little independence on the for the child, and they excited that they have a choice.


Below are some great ideas that you just load into those plastic separated containers. I LOVE these ideas!


Have a great day!

Fruit Ice Cubes

I am going to have to try this, although I may have to put some of the fruit in my water bottles and then fill half full and freeze. I am wondering how much flavor you get out of this amount of fruit in your water? I really love the idea of mint – I just may have to get a plant when I go to town today to try this.



These look so refreshing considering how hot it has been recently in Colorado. Please share your favorite fruit recipes. I would love to try some new ones.

Healthy Eating & Weight Loss Update

Some of you already know that we at the Dumdi Ranch have started SlimGenics. We are learning to eat healthier and what type of foods to eat and when we should eat them.

I can tell you that I have never thought about food this much. Food is constantly on my mind these days. And not in a good way. I have told hubby for years that this weight loss thing is a mental and learning how and when to eat the right things, but I didn’t really think that it was this mental for me.

And talk about cravings – No I didn’t always think about chips, pizza, mexican or chinese food, but I think about them now. I sure would love a bag of chips – before our weight loss journey I didn’t eat chips very often, or even think of them.

I am very proud of Mark, John, and myself. John and I have lost a total of 12 pounds each, and Mark has lost close to 30. We will have some challenges next week when we head to Gallup, NM, but I am sure that we will not stray too far. =)

I will keep you updated on our progress. Have a great day!

oh, yea – neither Haley nor Bear are enjoying this program. They look at me and then back to the green beans and think that I have lost my mind!
