You could win a copy of this cookbook.

Brown Bag ChallengeWe’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers to host a Brown-Bag Challenge, a month-long initiative to eat consciously and save money by packing a lunch each weekday instead of eating out. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag.

Our friends and fellow brown-bag lunch champions at Big Girls, Small Kitchen have a new cookbook, In The Small Kitchen: 100 Recipes From Our Year of Cooking in the Real World. The book is, according to Phoebe and Cara at BGSK, “a quirky cross between a food memoir and a beautiful cookbook with delicious recipes and colorful pictures.” Within the book’s 300 pages, the BGSK girls take you on their own journey into independence and learning to cook and entertain in a grown-up, post-college world — all from a small kitchen, and on a modest budget. It’s true that not every recipe fits into our healthy recipe criteria, but here at Healthy Eats we’ve always stressed the importance of cooking from scratch — it’s almost always healthier than eating out, and always healthier than choosing a processed product. So for those just getting started in the kitchen, and those with more experience, this is the perfect book to inspire plenty of homemade dinners, party appetizers, special-occasion desserts and brown-bag lunches for the whole family.

You can order your own copy of In a Small Kitchen, or you can enter to win a copy here. Just tell us in the comments how you fared in our September Brown-Bag Challenge. Did you complete the full month? What was the best lunch you packed this month?

The contest starts at 10 a.m. EST today, and ends on Monday, October 3 at 10 a.m. EST.

For the first day of the giveaway, all entries (answers) must be entered between 10 a.m. EST on September 23 and 10 a.m. EST on September 26. Subject to full official rules.

    I can officially say I completed the brown-bag challenge! My favorite lunch was a huge salad complete with quinoa, chicken, spinach, iceberg lettuce, red onion, carrot, mozzarella and balsamic vinaigrette

    I am all about the brown-bagging and I find it even more enticing to bring my lunch in a cute lunch bag, such as the ones from Vera Bradley. I love to bring foods with me that are snacking and easy to eat in between things such as sliced vegetables, fruits and homemade snack mix. A bag mixed with dried fruit, high fiber cereals, nuts and dark chocolate chips keeps me fueled and my palette happy for both my salty and sweet needs!

    Being a grad student, this can be difficult with our busy, uneven schedule. It's so easy just to pick up junk food on the go, but we (my boyfriend and I) did well! I think my favorite was a curry chicken salad. Perfect over greens, on bread, or just eaten with a fork. And we just feel so much better now that we're healthier!

    My brown bag experience went well…I had more repetition than I thought I would have had, but mainly because I was too busy with schoolwork to cook a whole lot. I never buy food out anyways so that was not a problem at all. The fact is…I actually ate lunch, which is a big deal for me!

  7. Hmmm…I’d like to say that I brought my lunch with me every single day. But then I’d be lying. So, I’ll say this: I brown-bagged it for MOST of the month! And I’m aiming to try harder in October!

    Kids brown bag lunch:
    Grilled chicken burritos on whole wheat tortilla with olives cheese and black beans.
    Cumin spiced brown rice with vegetables. 
    Greek yogurt with fruit
    Greek yogurt fresh fruit vanilla and balsamic. A little bit of local lavender honey and mint. So good they won’t even know it’s good for them.
