Mother Turns Her Sons School Lunch Bags Into Works of Art

A mom from Canada decided that sending her children to school with their lunches in brown paper bags was simply too boring. So forty-year-old Jenn Aguilar, from Calgary in Alberta, decided to spice things up a little by using her sons' lunch bags as a canvas from which to show them her love.

NTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lunch Boxow, Kale, aged 14, and Konnor, who is 12, carry their food to school each day in lunch bags covered in color, with personalized cartoon characters drawn by their mom. Jenn draws everything from cartoon characters to regular objects, all with a side of humor and signing off each bag with a heart and the word 'Mom'. Read more...

School Lunch Revolution From Sweden

School Lunch Revolution From Sweden

Lunchbox RevolutionSchool kids in the Swedish town of Gislaved regularly enjoy a rosemary-scented lamb stew that Kiwi-born chef Lyndon McLeod learnt to cook in his nana’s kitchen in Kaitangata, South Otago.

In Sweden, school pupils receive a cooked lunch at school every day. The Gisle School Restaurant, which McLeod heads up, serves 1400 portions a day. Children can choose from two main courses, soup of the day, freshly baked bread and a salad buffet. A recipe for the stew is included in an upcoming cookbook aimed at chefs catering in Swedish schools. The recipe requires 12 kilos of lamb and five litres of red wine, and feeds 100 hungry school kids. Read More...

Why Do We Love Watching Our Superhero Good Guys Fight Each Other?

Why Do We Love Watching Our Superhero Good Guys Fight Each Other?

This weekend, audiences will pile into a darkened theater to witness angry superheroes slam their fists into the screaming faces of opposing superheroes. Or was that last weekend? Or last month?

Batman vs Superman
The blockbuster fare this year has been stacked with back-to-back superhero slugfests, starting with the Daredevil’s Matt Murdock being beaten bloody by New York’s latest anti-hero, The Punisher, in the second season of Netflix's "Daredevil" series. Then came Warner Bros.' showdown of comic book heavyweights in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” And now it’s time for the prizefight: Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) will face off in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” this weekend.

How did it come to this? How did the slate get overloaded with comic book heroes duking it out? Even “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” took up the "versus" marketing mantle by pitting Charlize Theron’s and Emily Blunt's queens against each other. Is there a limit to the amount of times the audience can be entertained by elaborately costumed adults punching each other mercilessly? Read more...

How To Pack The Perfect Mason Jar Lunch Salad

How To Pack The Perfect Mason Jar Lunch Salad

The secret is in the stacking. Mason Jar Lunch BoxSee how Willow Jarosh, R.D., and Stephanie Clarke, R.D., layered this salmon-and-veggie salad for maximum freshness. Just shake and serve!

Started from the bottom…

  • Dressing Put it on the bottom so your other ingredients won’t get soggy. Try this flavorful version: two tbsp each olive oil and apple cider vinegar, plus ½ tsp turmeric and two tsp maple syrup.
  • Chopped Carrot & Jicama Hard, crunchy stuff can handle sitting in dressing.
  • Shredded Cabbage It works like packing material, keeping other layers in place.
  • Grilled Salmon Put fish second to last (so it won’t stick to the lid).
  • Spinach Leafy greens go on top, where they’ll stay soft.

…now you’re here. Happy lunching!
