Feed the Family All Day with Budget-Friendly Ideas

The joys of having a family are endless but keeping them busy and well-fed can be a challenging job. The Village West in Walnut, CA has the perfect solutions for you and your family. Here are some ideas on how to feed your family all day without blowing your budget and with healthy choices. You can start the day with a motivating breakfast at Starbucks, then move on to a healthy lunch at Rubio’s, a family dinner at Applebee’s, and finish off the day with some evening tea at Ten Ren or by tasting some new ice cream flavors at Coldstone’s.

Breakfast at Starbucks

Start off your day of shopping with a high-protein breakfast. Starbucks offers healthy breakfast wraps which are low in calories and sugar and high in protein. Some options are Spinach, Feta, & Cage-Free eggs or lean protein, cheese, and veggies in a whole wheat wrap. Starting the day with a good dose of protein will fuel the family for the rest of the day.

Lunch at Rubio’s

Rubio’s puts healthy choices at your fingertips. Their HealthMex menu items have less than 700 calories. You have the option to choose grilled seafood instead of fried as it is much healthier. And you can choose the side of salad, beans, or rice for the best pairing.

Dinner at Applebee’s

Many health-conscious patrons have found reasonably portioned and healthy menu items at Applebee’s. The Thai shrimp salad, for example, is rich in protein and will provide your family with almost half their daily dose of muscle-building nutrients. If you’re craving steak, the pepper-crusted sirloin with whole grains is a good choice.

After Dinner Snack at TenRen or Coldstone’s

After dinner, adults can enjoy the many health benefits of a cup of green tea at TenRen. The kids can enjoy a creamy ice cream treat at Coldstone’s. Their fresh sorbets can be combined with a choice of healthful mix-ins, like fresh fruit or crunchy nuts. Some of their sorbet flavors include pineapple, lemon, raspberry, mojito, strawberry mango banana, pineapple orange banana, and watermelon.
