Guest Post from La Vita e` Bella

Today, I asked my friend Adrienne over at La Vita e` Bella to share a little something with ya all! I hope you enjoy.

Hello new friends!

I am so thrilled that Cate asked me to guest blog on her fabulous blog!

Hi!  I’m Adrienne from La Vita é Bella! A 30 something lady blogging about all things beautiful and my journey through it all. I blog on a wide range of topics from daily musings to my favorite ideas for kitchen creations and home.

I am a teacher and wanted to share with you how I plan out my weekly lunches.  The busy school day leaves only 25-30 minutes for lunch daily.  A teacher’s lunch needs to be portable, healthy and have have enough staying power.

I try to include at least one of the following in my lunches:

  • protein
  • vegatable
  • fruit
  • snack

Variety is also key but sometimes if you anticipate a busy week, you can stretch out the same entree.

For instance, last Sunday I cooked up a batch of Greek Orzo Salad.  You can find this amazing recipe on Peace, Love, and Good Food.

I had the salad daily which contained orzo (grain), olives, tomatoes, cucumbers (vegetable) and feta cheese (protein).

I added a little variety to my lunch everyday by adding some Fage Greek Yogurt with fruit, fresh berries and a Be Kind Bar for my snack.

For drinks, I start off my day with coffee and switch to water.

Here’s an example of what one of my lunches looked like:

Overall, wherever you work, you need a great lunch to keep you going throughout the day.

What are your favorite lunch picks?



Thanks Adrienne for your great post! It was such a pleasure having you on Random Crafty Georgia Girl today! I know I will be trying this great recipe soon!
