Happy National Brown Bag It Day

May 25th is national brown bag it day, a day to reflect on what we eat and how much we spend on our lunch breaks…….. It is the common practice to run to the nearest fast food joint, cafeteria line or vending machine to satisfy our demanding hunger, however, the trouble with eating this way is, doing so can rob you of your health and your finances. Packing your own lunch can be the healthiest and most sustainable option for you and your children – doing so puts you in charge of what you consume and on your lunch budget.
