    By making it tasty and colorful.  The recipes I share are easy to cook in as little as 30 mins. or less.  I cook the night before to avoid too much hassle in the mornings.  Reminder, let all cooked meals cool on the counter before refrigerating to avoid condensation and sogginess.

    Whether it is hot or cold, mac and cheese is good!  But of course, it is not healthy just as is ... so what I do is: chop one stalk of parsley, then diced one medium-sized sweet onion,  also diced one medium red bell pepper and a pound of cubed or diced cold ham ( I like the honey-smoked ham ) and mix it into the mac & cheese.  This makes about 4 lunch box servings.  This meal tastes better with apple juice.

    Another lunch box meal served hot or cold is sweet porkchops with baby corn and peas.  Poke the porkchops with a fork so that the marinate can seep through.  Marinate 2 boneless porkchops for an hour.  My marinate sauce -- one-fourth cup of soy sauce, 3 Tablespoons of sugar, 1 Tablespoon vinegar and 1 Tablespoon ketchup.  OR you could SOAK your porkchops in any barbeque sauce for an hour.  While the porkchops are marinating, briefly saute the baby corn and peas in butter.  When the marinating hour is up, sprinkle a little bit of sugar on the porkchops then cook in pan.  Pour the marinade along with the porkchops while cooking.  When the meat is cooked, place on plate and cut the porkchops into cubes or bite-size.  Mix the pork with the baby corn and peas, sprinle with salt.  Let cool then store.  This also makes 4 lunch box servings. Orange juice is a preferred drink with this lunch meal.

    I hope this 2 recipe helps.
