Lenten Staples: Meals on the Go

Lenten Staples: Meals on the Go

These fasting meals were inspired by the school lunch, the grown-up work lunch, and the meals eaten in the car going to or from weeknight Lenten services.  They are meant as inspiration or to copy for all those needing a Lenten meal on the go.

  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your ideas. We were getting into a rut, and your fresh ideas are truly inspiring! Thanks again!

    • You’re truly welcome. This is probably the most thought I’ve ever put into meals during Lent although I’ve realized these are my normal go-to fasting meals.

  2. They were beautiful meals! And your kids’ enjoyment of them was a great testimony to how appealing they were : ) Great meal inspiration here!

    • You’re so sweet Anna!
