PickNIC (Pick Nutritious Ingredients Cost-Effectively): The top 100 "Best 4-U" brown-bag lunch food samples and health tips from Ingrid Kohlstadt MD, MPH.

Product/Service Details

My patients have asked me for this for years: “What can I pack for lunch that tastes amazing, is nutritious and doesn’t cost a fortune?”  After decades of making a difference in the lives of my patients, I am now going to make a difference in your life.  Now there is the PickNIC. 

In drawing on my experiences from working with two regulatory agencies that oversee our food and nutrition industry’s products (i.e. what we’re putting into our brown-bag lunches), I've never looked at packaging the same way. You might say I have an “inside view” of these products.  All of the PickNIC foods will help make you a savvy consumer based on the true health story of each food and nutrition product.

What I want to offer my patients and everyone who becomes a PickNIC “backer” through Fundable.com is an exciting selection of the foods with a big “Tasty Yum Factor" that are good for you too! Selecting foods that are prepared safely, with a thoughtful balance of quality ingredients and reasonable prices is my commitment to you.

Are you looking for amazing brown-bag lunch ideas that are:

  • Nutritious
  • Cost-effective
  • Fun
  • Tasty
  • Fast
  • Easy to put together

We got it, you get it!

Projected Examples of Dr. Kohlstadt's Top 100 (Above: Projected examples of Dr. Kohlstadt's "Best 4-U" Brown-Bag lunch picks)

What is PickNIC? The PickNIC list will be 100 healthful brown-bag foods chosen for popularity, taste and reasonable pricing. These 100 chosen foods will include food safety tips, how to use food as medicine or just to feel better, and fun facts about how the foods were discovered.

My team and I are both creative and expeditious. Now that I’ve practiced medicine on all seven continents, including station doctor in Antarctica, I’ve researched foods from around the globe including some of the newest food inventions.  Additionally my teammates represent 5 very different sets of taste buds and opinions. They are students from around the world attending Johns Hopkins health professions colleges (School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and School of Public Health), preschool parents, youth from around the U.S., nutrition doctors, and explorers such as those who winter in Antarctica.

We at PickNIC are sampling unique food items from around the world, carefully selecting companies and innovative food products. This will help bring the latest and newest foods, some of which might not yet have arrived on the shelves. We encourage these companies to help us identify their brown-bag bests (for more about this, please refer to Reward Option #3).

Our goal is to provide our Fundable.com supporters with nutritious brown-bag foods, web-links, leads, and cost-saving tips to show that tasty and healthful can also be affordable. Packaging labels such as natural, organic and low fat have more to do with product pricing than health benefit.  Our team of savvy shoppers will scout out the best prices. They'll even share their cost-saving leads.

Once PickNIC successfully completes our financial goal of $7,800 through Fundable.com, we are ready to go into action using your support dollars to implement the following reward options.
