Brown-Bag Challenge: Week One Round-Up
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 on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag.
It's been an interesting first week of the Brown-Bag Challenge. Week one had just two days, then we had a long, holiday weekend. Surely everyone's back on track though. (Right?)

A from Healthy Eats: Kate try a whole grain salad, they're more filling than just lettuce. Grain Salad 5 Ways
A from Healthy Eats: Alison, have you tried making your own salad dressing? (it's really easy!)
Q from Keisha G: Looking for healthy breakfast ideas. Something to take to work. Tired of yogurt and toast. Any ideas...
A from Healthy Eats: Keisha here are our top-5 favorite quick breakfasts.
Join us for another chat on the Healthy Eats Facebook page on Thursday, September 15 at 2 p.m EST; dieticians Toby Amidor and Dana White will join us to answer all of your questions about eating well at lunch.
It might be premature, but I feel comfortable saying that this challenge has been a breeze so far thanks to everyone's support and great lunch ideas. Take a look at what our friends are packing in their brown-bags, and let us know what you're eating.
