Today’s menu: pizza, carrots, orange, pretzels
Pizza again. It is basically once a week so it shouldn’t be a surprise. I was happy about the orange and the carrots. I did not use ranch on the pizza this time! I think the pizza looks really good in this picture…
When I first started the blog project, I thought to myself, “I wish I had gotten this idea earlier because I would have started eating school lunch at the beginning of the school year…. it’s just more logical.” But even if I had gotten the idea then, late last year I was actively breastfeeding and was very careful with my diet. So it’s really a moot point.
BUT now that I’m almost halfway done eating school lunches, I do believe that I couldn’t have made it if I had to go September to June without a significant break. I feel so lucky to have summer coming up and a chance to eat my own food.
One cool thing about the project straddling two school years is that I’ll get to see firsthand if there are any big changes to the menu come the Fall. It’s probably wishful thinking, but I think that in September I will see changes (maybe I have to believe for my own sanity). I’d like to see more whole foods (less processed meat) and more whole fruit. I’m hopeful.
