Back to School

It’s here! Back to the daily school thing. Parts of it are exciting, other parts not so much. Either way, it is time to get back to it. Which for me means packing lunches. I like to have food on hand that I know I want to eat and is good for me to eat. That doesn’t mean boring, though. The blog world is busting with school lunch ideas and posts to keep things healthy and exciting. Here are a couple I found worth checking out!

Healthy Brown Bag Lunches

Thermos Ideas for Lunch

Speaking of back-to-school lunches, you also need some healthy after-school treats! Since we are still on a zucchini kick at our house, I whipped up a batch of Zucchini Muffins.

Let’s just say they were a hit.

Zucchini Muffins

1 1/2 c. wheat flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
3/4 t. salt
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. honey
2/3 c. coconut oil
2 t. vanilla
2 eggs
2 c. shredded zucchini

In one bowl, mix together the first 5 ingredients (dry). In a second bowl, mix together the remaining 5 ingredients (wet). After both are mixed well, mix them together. Following that mixing action, fold in the 2 cups of zucchini.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20–23 minutes.
Makes 12 muffins
