BJs Healthy Homemade Lunch Options and Recipes

It’s almost time for Back-to-School which means parents everywhere are preparing healthy lunch options for the kids.  Long gone are the days of offering a bag of potato chips with a soda on the side.  We’ve learned through research that fruits, vegetables, and proteins enable kids to be more productive and happier.  With all of the processed food, allergies and hunger pains kids have, a boring, uninspiring or less-than-nutritious lunch won’t cut it.

A healthy and affordable homemade lunch will keep kids energized all day!

Autumnal hues. Effortless silhouettes. Fresh patterns. The great outdoors beckon to be explored. Utility meets luxe with cool outerwear, flight pants, jumpsuits and the inclusion of rustic-inspired heritage fabrics like plaids and tweeds.


The inspiration for Fall’s worldly fashion: the people, prints, places and patterns. You’ll see eye-catching blanket fabrics for ponchos, while coats and utility jackets have a collectible feel. Embellishment is at the forefront with an art and craft vibe to make every piece unique.


Opt for this season’s collection of cool & crisp neutrals. White is the color of the moment. Layers are oversized and creatively reworked. Cocoon silhouettes lend a cozy feeling with soft textures and amplified volume. Midi skirts and oversized knits inject minimalism into easy looks, while new quilting and padding bring a fresh spin to casual chic.


Sharp. Sophisticated. Stunning. There’s never been a better time to head over to the dark side. There’s a whole new attitude to head-to-toe black. Fabrics and texture are key with an unexpected combination of high-tech and luxe materials. Prints are a reflection of modern art, photo and hyper-realism, while athleisure silhouettes are combined with sleek asymmetric must-haves: the stacked set, the mod shift, the track pant, the new sweat and the bomber.


As fashion’s latest muse, it’s all about creating your personal sense of style. A kaleidoscope of unexpected, vibrant hues are the new color therapy. Pop art sets the mood for graphic, virtually surrealistic prints. Asymmetric shapes, sparkle bursts and fun furs beget the trend’s wild side.


The color purple reigns everywhere this season — and it’s not just for key statement piece. From the palest of lilacs to the boldest amethyst, this alluring hue is having a crowning moment this season.


All that glitters is gold this holiday season! From luxe chain-link jewelry and sparkling handbags to metallic sweaters and sequined frocks, each item on your wish list is guaranteed to have the Midas touch. Come party time, make a shining statement with this 24-karat color in celestial motifs, shimmery dresses and embellished accessories.
