Before I even begin writing this post I want to first let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Texas who are trying to pull together pieces of their lives that have been shattered by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. I feel so helpless watching so many people suffer, but it has truly been incredible to see our country come together, for the first time in a long time, to help those in need.
In times like this we are reminded that many of the things we do day to day, including the work we do in the influencer space, are so small and unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
With that, I do want to say the whole focus of my blog and my YouTube channel is on living more intentionally. The things we do, the choices we make, it all has an impact on our planet and on others. This is the only reason I still feel comfortable posting while so many others are struggling. It also goes without saying that the opportunities that are presented to me because of my platforms help me to give back. It helps me to do my part in helping others and bettering the world we live in. I will continue down this path, regardless of the pain in the world, because my message and my purpose is bigger than me.
I want you to leave this space inspired to do better. To be less impactful on the environment. To care truly and deeply for other humans and the animals that share our space. I want to continue to remind you that life is not made of things – it’s made of moments, of relationships, and of good deeds.
So yes, this post is about vegan lunch ideas for children. Or more specifically what I pack my own children. But there’s more to it. These meals aren’t contributing to factory farming. These meals help to lessen the damage done to our planet by the consumption and transportation of animal products.
In closing, Texas, my heart is with you. I hope this post inspires someone, anyone, to live more intentionally and shift their focus from worldly possessions to philanthropy and the many blessings we have been given.
There’s no “good” way to transition from devastation, so with that I leave you with vegan school lunch ideas:
