Lunch is an important meal for kindergartners. Research has shown that eating a nutritious lunch gives kids the energy and stamina to get through the rest of the day. This means being better able to focus on classwork and less likely to have emotional issues, along with other positive benefits. For parents, the need for a […]
How do you view change? Do you embrace it with arms wide open? Or do you turn your back and try to keep the status quo?
I think…err believe that I eat healthy, as do most of us. And as do most, there is the occasion to underestimate just how much we eat. So, it stands to reason that there is a vast underestimation of how healthy we eat as well. Until… FOODUCATE! Fooducate is an application designed to ease […]
Should you take a vitamin supplement and if so, do you take a multi-vitamin or perhaps just a little extra vitamin C? Is any one vitamin more important than another? And aren’t vitamins for the elderly anyway? Arguments for and against supplements are many; and the decision to take supplements is personal and self-prescribed. How […]
A few weeks ago, I met up with former co-workers for a life catch-up session. It was great! I really miss working with those ladies and it was wonderful to hear about the changes that had transpired over the last year. We met over brunch (my favorite meal) and I ordered a black walnut kale salad. I liked it except for the vinaigrette. For me, the vinaigrette did not complement the kale.
These moons are based on the edamame quesadilla recipe, except I substituted fresh chopped kale for the edamame. Kale boosts the fiber content and makes it possible to enjoy two as a light lunch.
Although I normally save pancake breakfasts for the weekend, I can’t help but make these during the week on occasion. They require no eggs and provide whole grains.
Ahhh comfort food. We all have our favorites. For me, it is more than just mac and cheese. Feed me enchiladas or a casserole! Of all the casseroles my mother baked, I distinctly remembered one that had asparagus and was delicious!

Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes I love discovering different variations of vegetables and fruit at my local Farmer’s market. Better than the food samples at your local supermarket, vendors are proud to let you sample a slice of their juicy ripe nectarines, peaches, apples and other fruit. Although you may not be […]
Prep Time: 2 minutes Blend Time: 2 minutes Total Servings: 1 20 ounce smoothie, or 2 10 ounce servings A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to pick fresh apricots from my cousin’s tree. We went there for a bbq, swimming, and poker party. I was hesitant to pick so many because I was […]
This past weekend, I celebrated Independence Day with my Fiance’s family in Minnesota. It was my first time visiting and the weather, location and company was absolutely perfect! We explored back country woods on ATVs, shot sporting clay, whipped around the lake on a jet ski and checked each other for ticks. Did I mention […]
To me the continental breakfast has always been a joke. It never seems to be enough. A few croissants, jam, fruit, milk and coffee? Where’s the protein? It turns out everyone has a different idea of what constitutes a continental breakfast. Some places offer a “light” version while others offer a “full”. A light is […]
Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Serves 4 – 3/4 cup servings I first discovered my love for this German turnip in, where else but Germany! I grew up a military brat and remember being handed a fresh slice of Kholrabi right in our garden plot. It was sweet, crisp and I […]
