In the midst of figuring out my nutrition beliefs, I went from picky eater to vegetarian to vegan to omnivore. While vegetarian and vegan, my two favorite cookbooks were “A Celebration of Wellness – A Cookbook for Vibrant Living” and “Moosewood Cookbook”. I wanted to share with you what remains one of my favorite recipes from Moosewood Cookbook.
Are you day dreaming of warmer weather? If you are, we have the perfect recipe for you. This is one of our favorites. Put a new spin on Turkey Burgers with Dill Yogurt Dipping Sauce. It's a great way to get your kids to try new foods and an even better way to get your family to sit down for dinner together!
March is National Nutrition Month! National Nutrition Month is a month to share nutrition education and of course to celebrate some of favorite foods. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the start of March than by sharing our original recipe using KIND granola clusters. We mixed some of our favorite things into one cookie - cranberries, walnuts, and of course KIND clusters granola!
I cannot get my girls to eat vegetables (toddler dilemma). The only veggies I can get them to eat sometimes, are edamame, carrot French fries (which are really not veggies), or veggie burgers. I try to sneak veggies into grilled cheese sandwiches, but they spit it out in disgust; they will eat around the peas if they find them in pasta sauce. I have even tried hummus with carrot sticks, but they only want crackers or pretzels.
One particular family was memorable because both parents were security guards and they seemed to bring an element of their jobs to the family dinner table. They contacted me because their 5-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, wasn’t gaining weight and was a “very picky eater.”

My nutritional skills were put to the test when I rescued ten-year-old Luke, my son’s friend, who was dizzy from playing baseball in the summer heat. Driving up with hydrating sports beverages and a mom’s wisdom, I remembered that Luke had an endocrine condition that made dehydration particularly dangerous.
