by in Events, Recipes, September 21st, 2011

In case you haven’t heard, FN Dish is participating in Healthy Eats’ Brown-Bag Challenge. The challenge: Bring your lunch to work each weekday for the month of September. We know this isn’t an easy feat, so we’ve asked some of our favorite food bloggers to share their experience and favorite recipes to help keep everyone motivated.

This week, Jenna Reed from The Undercover Cook is getting us through the work-week with her leftover tips.

It has always been my goal to take my lunch to work most days because it is cheaper and healthier than going out. Lately, though, my make-ahead lunches were slipping down the priority list in the evenings and becoming the exception rather than the rule.

Guy Fieri recently met with a couple who have made a hobby out of traveling to all of the places featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. So far, Food Network fans Ben and Barb Stillwagon have been to 249 locations and have created a scrapbook collection of their travels. But it’s their latest stop at Guy’s own Johnny Garlic’s that brought them face-to-face with their inspiration and gave them a chance to share their memorabilia with him. SJ-R.com reports that “Guy asked Ben and Barb if they could leave the albums in Santa Rosa for a while so their souvenirs could be scanned into a computer for possible use in the future.” Ben described the meeting as a dream come true.

troy johnson crave
Last week Troy Johnson, host of Crave, dropped by for a Food Network Facebook chat. If you missed it, here are some of the highlights:

Kate Farber Gold: What is your favorite thing to eat?
TJ: I would have to say Thai food — drunken noodles with duck, so hot it hurts. Or Fruity Pebbles in ice cold milk.

Michelle Buffardi: Is there any food that you hated as a kid but learned to like as a grownup?
TJ: I hated liver, now I love it. Especially one that’s a little enhanced.

Conway Obleman: What would be your last meal?
TJ: It would have to do with mussels, a little roasted bone marrow (meat butter) and a salad so that I can go into the afterlife with a svelte figure.
