Introducing Our 9th Doable Challenge: Healthy Homemade Lunches (for Grown-Ups!)

This time of year, food publications are full of healthy lunch ideas for kids, and that’s a great thing. But what about us adults? The latest in our series of Doable Challenges, Healthy Homemade Lunches, aims to address the “what’s for lunch?” question for grown-ups with an answer that’s not “takeout” or “yet another boring turkey sandwich.” Of course children are certainly welcome to eat the sandwiches, salads, and other nutritious midday meals we’ve gathered recipes for in the feature. In fact, for this challenge, we’re featuring recipes and tips from registered dietitian Tina Ruggiero, whose just-published The Truly Healthy Family Cookbook: Mega-Nutritious Meals that are Inspired, Delicous and Fad-Free includes meals that are designed to appeal to people of all ages who want to eat healthier. As with all of our Doable Challenges, this one starts at the grocery store, where Ruggiero suggests you shop like you would for clothes: Really explore the aisles and bring home healthy ingredients that excite you, whether those are new breads, a kind of canned fish you don’t usually buy, or maybe some kale to add to your sandwich instead of lettuce. Take a look at the six recipes from Ruggiero below for inspiration, hit the store or farmer’s market, then get ready to join me in diving into this healthier lunch challenge right after Labor Day.
