Healthy Spring Brown Bag

Good morning, I bet many people in parts of the country didn't think they would need their snow scrapers to wipe off the car windows. What a surprise, but spring can still bring the chill. It's almost noon and time for lunch around the workplaces. Even people who work from home try to keep a 9-5 schedule which is a good idea. If you are looking for work, staying on track with scheduling the day will help  the transition.

Just as spring colors are part of our wardrobe for work, take those colors along in your brown bag lunch each day. Here's how to add a healthy pop of color with fruit:
--->Banana for yellow and loads of potassium
--->Red delicious apple and strawberries for red, get your fiber
--->Granny smith apple or Bartlett pear for green
--->Orange, speaks for itself and has a bunch of vitamin C
--->Pink with watermelon, refreshingly cool & quenches thirst
--->Blueberries, grapes and plums for that healthy pop of deep blue and purple, plenty of antioxidants

Have a wonderful week!


  1. I've been terrible lately at packing my lunch. Will try to do better this week. However, for breakfast I've been blending a mix of orange juice with a big bunch of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. It's been an antioxidant and vitamin rich burst of goodness. Maybe I'll do it again this week.

    1. Hello Carmen, your breakfast blend sounds refreshing and a great lift to start the day. Keep it up!

      Thanks for your comment and stopping by :)
