I’d like to begin this week’s post with a shout-out to all of the families who visited “Project Lunchbox: Let’s Eat!”at Howe Manning School’s Get Moving Night this past Friday evening. It was a pleasure to meet you and to dialogue with you about all things nutrition! I hope that you benefitted from our discussion about organic versus conventionally grown produce and how to maximize your organic food budget. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions via the “Comment” section of this site, as I am thrilled that you have become official subscribers to my “Let’s Eat Lunch!” Blog. Thank you for your interest!
Secondly, Thanksgiving Day is less than a week away! And, since I adore tradition, it has become standard practice for me to post a favorite quote of mine at this time of the year that sums up the upcoming holiday and its true meaning:
“None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.”
-Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
This year in particular I am grateful for many things, and among them, I am thankful for your continued support of “Project Lunchbox: Let’s Eat!” and its mission to educate families about the link between healthy eating and positive school performance. I am truly appreciative that you take time out of your week to read my blog additions, ask questions, and start conversations about nutrition, food justice, and wellness on this site. Your enthusiastic participation makes teaching and writing such a joy for me!
I hope that you and yours enjoy a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Until Next Week… Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,
