Mommy Style Monday: Lunch Time

Ahh lunch time! Meals at any time of day! I am always excited to hear other people's ideas when it comes to meals, because I get stuck in ruts and can't think of anything new to make. The routine we've found ourselves in is that Nathan has a few options for breakfast and lunch, and I just ask him which one he wants and I whip that together, but he eats whatever I make for dinner. (Or he doesn't eat it!) Nathan gets stuck on one lunch idea for a while, and he usually doesn't feel like changing it unless I run out of whatever I was making him. It's a little boring, but super easy, so I'm cool with it!

Today I had planned to make him his regular lunch and take cute pictures of it, but he was in a mood so it was a mac and cheese day instead! Oh well.

Here is what I've made for lunch in the past for Nathan:

Turkey/cheese roll ups with pretzels and fruit
Wheat thins with laughing cow cheese and a fruit/veggie
"Lunchable" - crackers, cheese, meat with a fruit/veggie

They are all kind of a variation of each other, but I feel good about it! On random days we'll go with mac and cheese or ramen or something, but not that often. I think the stuff I put above is easier to throw together haha.

As far as feeding MYSELF goes, this is another story. I don't usually eat at the same time as Nathan. I don't really know why! I think I just like the freedom to eat what I want, when I want, and Nathan goes down for a nap right after lunch, so it's a nice quiet time for me. Sometimes I eat the same thing as him. I also love crackers and laughing cow cheese, for instance! Sometimes I just grab a granola bar because I have a ton of other stuff to do during nap time. I'm actually trying to get better at eating leftovers. Alex and I have started the CleanSimpleEats meal plans, and part of that is using what you made for dinner for your lunch the next day! I am NOT a leftovers person, but this meal plan has forced me to be a grown up about it haha, and sometimes I love it! When I'm not feeling it, I pull out the snack food usually. Anyway, truth be told, I'm a bit terrible at feeding myself. So I'm very excited to see what these other lovely ladies come up with!

For Mommy Style Monday, we try to talk about how we do life with our own style! Sometimes our posts are about fashion, sometimes they are about different parenting ideas, sometimes they are about marriage. We all have our own style and way of doing things, and there is no perfect right way! If you'd like to join us next month (and we'd LOVE to have you!) click here.
