if it's not tasty... you won't eat it!!!

So I promised to tell you more about my lunches, I'm not sure anyone will care that much but - it really is my favorite secret so here's a peek at a healthy, no compromise lunch... kashi style :)

If you're craving mexican food... (I so often do)Grab a Mayan Harvest or Veggie Chana Masala and prepare as directed on the box

Now I use this mix to either make a killer salad or burrito. I'll add lettuce, lime juice (fresh of course) jalapenos, tomatos, black beans, chaluas hot sauce, and occasionally splurge and use a tsp. of sour cream. This is tasty enough that my kids love it, even my picky hubby thinks it's tasty. The best part is, you can use all or only some of these ingredients to stretch it out to feed two, or just top off your lunch for one.I swear it will kill your mexi cravings completely guilt free!!!

Those sound great! I love my Kashi bars...and yeah, I totally agree: if you don't like it, you won't eat it-iit won't be sustainable.

I'll have to try the Kashi frozen foods to see how they compare with other brands. Looks delish!

You really make that sound good. But quick question: how many servings in the box? I often have to buy something with just one serving to make sure I don't overeat. I'll bulk it up with veggies, beans, etc and then there's plenty for the two of us. But if I buy a big box that's meant for a family of four, for example...well, that spells trouble! I'll end up eating way more than I should.

only 1 serving - and I always do the same... I love to add fresh veggies and stretch it into 2 as well... makes it so I don't have to make a seperate lunch for my sweetheart
