Thinking Inside the Box

Welcome to the Gather blog. Here you’ll find relevant articles and recipes to help you simplify the lunchmaking process. Whether you’re preparing food for your kids, taking your lunch to work with you or going on a picnic, you’ll find lots of options for ideas here. Lunch preparation doesn’t have to be boring or repetitive. With recipes, we’ll try to present you with lunch ideas that can be prepared in 5 minutes or less. If you have recipes you love, send them to us on the Contact Us page and we’ll try to include them in future blog entries. Come back often to get new ideas.

The average school year last 180 days. That’s 180 days of lunch preparation times however many kids you have. Workers who take their lunch with them don’t get any summer breaks. That’s a lot of lunch prep! Having a great looking, functional Gather lunchbox is a great start, but new ideas that are easy to prepare and which taste great will keep the lunch prep drudgery at bay. No one loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches more than we do here at Gather, but there are sometimes more exciting things to make and eat. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut because it’s easy and we can’t think of anything else to make. We here at Gather are aiming to solve that with your help.

In our next entry, you’ll find the first recipe that is quick, easy, and full of flavor. Look for Peanut Butter Tortilla Turnovers in our next entry.
