Could you feed your children on one dollar per child per meal?
I know it would be a struggle in my home with five kids and a husband. But millions of American parents may have to tell their kids “there’s nothing to eat tonight.” In this land of plenty, it's hard to believe this could happen.
Here’s a little background:
• Last week both the House and…

I don't know about you, but mornings in my house are pretty busy. Between my husband, five kids, homeschooling, and house work I usually tend to forget all about breakfast. That is until around lunch time when I'm completely starving and ready to devour everything in…Continue

Parents play a key part not only in making healthier options for their kids but also in educating kids how to make healthier options for themselves. One of the best methods you can help your kid maintain diet plan is to inform them to work on their portion control. Your kid's doctor can assess your kid's body weight and growth and let you know if your kid needs to lose or put on body weight or if any nutritional changes need to be made. Simple methods to reduce fat consumption in your kid's…Continue

Would like to hear your thoughts on this: The crux (near as I can cipher) of the Monsanto/GMO controversy appears to be, in essence, that if produce and livestock were produced "clean and pure and chemical-free", no one but royalty could afford to eat. Which means, of course, farming and ranching would no longer be a viable means of earning a living and would eventually disappear. So in essence the message is it's better to commit slow ugly suicide by ingesting poisonous GMOs and…Continue

You’ve got a VERY limited time to try this recipe… so pay close attention.
Over the next few weeks as soil temperatures steadily rise, cicadas will begin emerging from their dark underground world… the first time since 1996.
Then, six weeks after their mating ritual, they’ll be gone, vanished… dead. Their offspring won’t return until 2030.
I lived in Africa and…Continue

Like so many things affecting their children, parents tend to disagree on whether sex, sexual orientation or religion should be taught in school. Well, this mom (and an RD) often wonders if nutrition should be taught in school.
Teachers are not experts in nutrition nor are they educated about pediatric or adult nutrition as part of their college curriculums. Yet, many classroom teachers are giving lessons on “calories, good…Continue

Jon asks: What is panko? You always refer to it as “Japanese Bread Crumbs” in your recipes, but what is it exactly?
Panko originated (sort of, I'll explain more later) in Japan and is made from specially baked, crustless white bread. The coarsely ground crumbs are larger and more delicate because the crumb itself is slivered and oblong, instead of rounded like traditional…Continue

Keeping up with this new dieting experience, I had to pick up a few items I kept forgetting to look for. Who knew Walmart and the local grocery stores sold organic food? I know, I know...that's a given. But, I never had an interest in them because I assumed the price would be way to high for my piggy bank. That was definitely true when considering the price of items at the grocery and "real" food grocery stores with the price…Continue

Have a kid who’s a picky eater? You’re not alone. Children have little say about most of the things in their lives, but what goes in their mouths is one thing they have control over. However, as a parent you know how important it is for your child to eat a balanced diet that doesn’t just include chicken nuggets, cupcakes, and French fries. The best way to get them to eat healthy is to make it fun for them and create a kind of…Continue

On my own personal journey of eating healthier, I discovered that I was spending a LOT more time in the kitchen than the days gone by of mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, hot dogs and Gold Fish. Cutting and peeling an apple doesn't seem like a very time consuming process, but when every meal and snack is prepared from whole, clean, healthy foods, you up your time in the kitchen by at least double. BUT... that time in the kitchen allowed me to stumble upon a very good way to both introduce…Continue
