Tips for Healthy Back to School Lunches and Weeknight Dinners

Looking ahead to the end of summer, most of us can already see our schedules getting busier. Soon enough, it’s going to be time to start packing those school lunches, whether for your kids or yourself! And of course busy weeknights are when it’s hardest to cook, and we’re mostly likely to rely on takeout.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In our next Thrive Kitchen class, Back to School Lunches and Easy Weeknight Cooking, we will get ready for fall with tips and recipes for creating healthy lunches and easy weeknight dinners. Class will take Wednesday, August 14th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Thrive Kitchen classes are interactive cooking classes held once a month in the demonstration kitchen at Kaiser Permanente San Francisco, Mission Bay.

Registration is open to both Kaiser Permanente members and non-members. The fee is $30 for Kaiser members, $40 for the general public and covers instruction, the meal we cook together, nutrition discussion and recipe packet.

To register, email SFHealthEd@KP.org or call (415) 833-3450. You can also check out the Facebook Event for more information. Sign up now for Back to School: Lunch and Easy Weeknight Cooking to secure your place.

More of my cooking tips and recipe ideas can be found on my Facebook page, The Doctor’s Spicebox and on my international cuisine blog, Spicebox Travels. I also contribute recipes to the Kaiser Permanente’s Food for Health website, a repository for all sorts of great cooking and meal planning ideas.
