Jena the TV Producer Tells Us… “What’s For Lunch”!

Today’s “What’s For Lunch” contributor is kind of a big deal.  She’s the breaking news producer for Fox News’ Shepard Smith Reporting.  Her name is Jena.

We met when we were producing news together in Cincinnati, and if her job is anything like mine is now, she’s almost always eating at her desk.  So when you want to eat well, you need to pack well, and that’s exactly what Jena does.   Her trick – dinner leftovers.  Let’s take a look!

Jena’s Lunch

Leslie The Dietician Tells Us… “What’s For Lunch”!

It’s not always easy eating well.  But today’s “What’s For Lunch” contributor has an extra important reason to stay healthy.  She’s expecting her first little baby!  Hooray!

Leslie, MPH, RD/LD, CLT & Owner of Health Hearts Nutrition LLC

Her name is Leslie.  I played basketball with her in high school, and now that we’re all grown up, she’s become a very distinguished expert in foods and nutrition.  Seriously, she has four different abbreviations behind her name.  It’s impressive.  To top it all off, she owns her own coaching clinic in Ohio called Health Hearts Nutrition LLC.  Even if you can’t pay her a visit in person, the website is really helpful.  I recommend stopping by!  And she’s always posting fun and interesting tidbits on Facebook.  LIKE her to follow!

Anyway, I was excited to get back in touch with Leslie, because… to be completely honest… I’m nosy.  I’m always curious to know what dieticians really eat.  The answer, at least in this case, is a little bit of everything.  And because Leslie is pregnant (AKA always hungry), she packs one lunch bag with lots of healthy snacks and picks from it throughout the day.  Let’s take a look!

  • Grapes and cheddar cheese for a mid-morning snack
  • Homemade cabbage rolls and sauerkraut for lunch (Leslie says the baby likes German food!)
  • A plum and coconut cashews from Trader Joe’s for an afternoon snack

Introducing… “What’s For Lunch?”

Happy Monday, ya’ll!  Today, we will begin answering that epic question we all ask ourselves each and every day…

This new “What’s For Lunch?” experiment will be a fun and interesting look inside the lives of hungry people who like to eat.  Each week, we’ll feature a new meal from a new individual.  You may know of them.  You may not.  Either way, you’ll see some of their favorite foods and get ideas for your own lunch!  Why don’t I do the honors in kicking things off?

Check out this spread… eaten at my desk on top of a newspaper like a real animal.
