For this kick off to Season 2 of the Cook Smarts podcast during back-to-school season, I’ve invited one of my entrepreneurial heroes Laura Fuentes to give us advice on planning for and packing school lunches. Millions of us are about to face that daily task, and Laura is an official lunch expert. Her company MOMables started out as a lunch meal planning company but has grown to also offer dinner meal plans and 3 transformative health programs tackling processed foods, picky eating, and budget meal planning.

However, because Laura is such a remarkable individual who’s totally winning at life, she gives us lots of great tips for beyond the kitchen as well. In today’s episode you’ll:

  1. Learn how to think more creatively about kid lunches
  2. Gain a new perspective on what food battles to fight (or not fight) at the dinner table
  3. Discover how to help yourself by letting others help you (even if they don’t do it exactly the same way you would)

If you’re someone who’s looking for a lunch and / or life coach, don’t miss this episode full of Laura’s practical and wise advice for life in and out of the kitchen.

Love from our podcast community:

“We all have to eat, and Jess and the Cook Smarts team have become my go-to friends for kitchen know-how. They never forget that many of us are functional kitchen users at best. Plenty of explanation for newbies and exploration for foodies. Staffed by busy folks with real lives, and small-to-normal size kitchens, who understand the need for efficiency. Plus, they are just nice people to have hanging around when the dishwasher or the dryer need emptying.”
