My daughter takes a lot of salads for lunch. I teach and am not fond of the choices available for children. I will make batches of vegan dishes and freeze them. In the morning, I grab one and go. I am lucky though because I can microwave the vegan chilis for lunch.

Trivia Fact: School lunch was created during WWII by the Federal government as a military preparedness. Too many teenagers were trying to enlist and didn't weigh enough to go on active duty. So the Federal government created a subsidized lunch program to fatten up the children so they could enlist and go to war...I guess it has succeeded a little too much!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
