Really? Beans for lunch?

If you're a parent, you've probably found that the struggle to feed our kids healthy food (that they will actually eat!) is constant! It can be tough to choose the right foods to put in their lunchboxes. So, this list of things that should be in our kids' lunches caught our eye. According to EatingWell Magazine, there are three things that should be in our kids' lunches to give them the nutrients and energy they need. The first is Oatmeal Bars. They can fill a kid up quickly (if you're running late and eating on the way to school!) and last longer than a sugary cereal. Another food that is great for our kids is yogurt. It helps to provide much-needed calcium to help them build strong bones. The third food on the list made us laugh! Never would have guessed: beans! Experts say that beans have iron and many new studies show that kids don't get enough iron. Iron is good for learning, memory and battling attention problems.

So, in addition to Oatmeal Bars and yogurt, break out the "musical fruit" (sorry, teachers!) for a healthier lunch for your kid tomorrow!

Oz turns 70!!!!

One of my favorite movies growing up as a kid was the Wizard of Oz.  It was like one of the only movies we got to see, because we only had one TV channel in the little Minnesota town that I grew up in.  I am curious, if you could pick one Wizard of oz Character that best describes you, who would it be???

Christine talks PIZZA!

Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
 

The amount of pizza we American’s consume per year is equivalent to 100 football fields –visually speaking that is about 100 acres! 

Obviously pizza is not a healthful meal in most cases but we don’t care because it tastes so darn good.  But there are the nutritional consequences.  For example, one personal cheese pizza from Pizza Hut has 463 calories, 38 grams of fat and 14 grams are saturated.  So what can pizza lovers do?  They can get savvy on their outdoor grills and make insanely delish personal pizzas!!

 

Smart pizza topping swaps:

Go with chicken apple sausage which has half the fat as spicy Italian sausage.

Kalamata olives have half the sodium as anchovies.

Tomato based sauce has 8 grams less saturated fat than a creamy pizza sauce.

Spanish chorizo has less fat and sodium than pepperoni.

 

Not sure how to grill a pizza?

Nutrition Facts: 240 Calories, 9 grams of fat
