Lunch rut? No more….. When you need to get out of the door fast and time/sleep are precious commodities in your house then you need to see my lunch ideas recipes! I make 4 different lunches in just 5 minutes with 1 simple rotisserie chicken from Safeway.

We can’t always eat out for lunch each day – for some it’s a matter of money, for others it’s a matter of time. Commit to packing your lunch while saving time and money.
