Brown Bag Challenge
We're teaming up with fellow food bloggers to host a Brown-Bag Challenge, a month-long initiative to eat consciously and save money by packing a lunch each weekday instead of eating out. Join us here and share what you're eating with FN Healthy Eats on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag. Are you up for the challenge?

Who say’s lunch has to be serious? Monkey around with this Zoo Lunchies Insulated Lunch Bag. The inside compartment has lots of space for multiple containers and snacks, plus a write on name tag so nobody else can steal your bag. Keep utensils in an inside mesh pocket, and use the top handle to clip the bag on your (less-fun) briefcase or purse. Find it here.

Need a lunch recipe to get started? Try Ellie's Broccoli and Cheddar-Stuffed Potato Skins with Avocado Cream.
