Healthy Breakfasts for Busy Days

Healthy eating guru Mary shares her kid’s favorite ways to fuel up on nutritious breakfasts before zooming off to school and beyond.

Good-For-You After School Snacks

After school snacks are an essential part of a school year routine, and we find that snack time is so much easier and more fun when our school-goers have had a hand in preparing the treats.

From selecting the perfect apple to choosing grains, nuts and dried fruit in the bulk aisle and using little hands to form snack cookies or flip on the blender – kids love to get in on the shopping and cooking action, too.

Choose smart mini meals and nourishing treats that are packed with fruits, veggies, whole grains and healthy fats for a little boost until dinnertime.

Let’s Cook: Kale Waldorf Salad

Turn traditional Waldorf salad into a healthy feast using super greens (kale) instead of lettuce, and make a creamy dressing without any mayo!

Fast Food for Babies

I’m a fairly new mom (my daughter is 18 months old), and so far my observations  in the realm of babies and food are that: babies eat frequently throughout the day; babies are not known for their patience; babies tend to eat dinner much earlier than adults.

Marinate Your Way to Healthier Meals

We all know meat and seafood love a good soak in flavorful marinade, but plant-based foods do, too.

Marinating requires a subtle balancing act that once achieved will catapult your basic vegetarian faves to new heights. Grab a few blocks of tofu, a slab of tempeh and all the produce you can manage and head to the kitchen for a little advanced preparation.
