I’m Back…And A LOT has changed!!

February 11, 2016

Hey Fans…I’m Back!! I seriously can’t believe it’s been over a year since I last posted anything on my blog.  Life just got really hectic, and I needed a break. I said adios to Ohio and hola to Mexico.  Me and my family relocated here in Aug 2015, and so far we really love.  I’ve […]

Wow!!! The ROXX Box is 2 years old.  Where has the time gone?  I seriously can’t believe it’s been 2 years already.  Over the past 2 years, my blog has grown into a wonderful place where readers can find creative lunch ideas for themselves and their kids.  I’ve been able to collaborate with some amazing […]

I am often asked this question whenever I pack one of my typical lunch boxes, “But how do you keep it hot?”  And my typical response is, “I don’t mind eating it at room temperature.”  Well the reality is, a lot of people do mind eating their hot lunches at room temperature, and want their […]

I recently came across this article about mold in juice boxes.  As a Mom who buys her kids 100% juice boxes to put in their lunch bags, seeing this picture grossed me out. They don’t drink them a lot, but when they are in the mood for juice, I grab a juice box. As stated […]

Sweet Potato Lentil Soup

I’m dieting…Well not really.  I’m eating better.  Yeah…I like that better.  Doesn’t sound as restrictive…I hate stuff that seems too restrictive.  So yeah, I’m eating better.  Eating earlier.  Snacking less.  Making better food choices.  Dusting off all of those exercise DVDs that are in my possession.  Going to my gym more.  I’m embracing a healthier […]

Salmon Salad

Even though I could stand to lose a few pounds, I am not a fan of dieting.  It seems as though whenever I call myself being on a “diet”, I self destruct within a few days.  I just LOVE food.  And there is absolutely no sense in depriving myself of all the wonderful food out […]

OK…I know I keep saying this about every food blog I talk about, but this is SERIOUSLY 1 of my FAVORITES.  I just love how Jennifer blogs about her recipes, and takes you through a series of delicious photos.  It’s bloggers like her that makes me want to step up my game.   So the other […]
