Lunch Packing by Dana Shafir Wellness
Dana Shafir, a certified health and nutrition coach, licensed psychotherapist, and mom of 3, packs nutritious lunches for her family almost every day. Simple. Real. Nutritious. Colorful. Balanced. Satisfying. Appealing. That’s the checklist she uses to pack lunches (and create meals).
“The best part about it: anyone can do this! When I pack the girlies’ lunches, I typically put in two different varieties of protein–for example, dairy and eggs, or animal meat and dairy, or plant-based alternatives. High-quality proteins function as building blocks for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood, and are also the building blocks for enzymes, hormones, and vitamins. In addition, they (along with healthy fats) are more satiating and provide long-lasting energy, which is incredibly important as kiddos need to power through their school day. And I made sure to make lunchboxes lively with a variety of colors. “ – Dana
Dana packs her family’s lunches in EasyLunchboxes compartmentalized containers.
