|I love you Julia|
Well, we are officially starting our school year (although school never really stopped this summer, even on our vacations we were reading, writing, and learning!) And what better way to start a new school year than to visit the library? Today I got the BEST BOOK EVER! I've already been filling up recipe cards the minute I got my grubby little hands on it (during nap time!) I love cook books! And this one is called Healthy Family Meals: 150 recipes everyone will love. The American Heart Association approved this book.
|I love you Babe and Mark-man|
You know your mouth is watering right now!
And each recipe has pictures, nutrition tips, and the calories, cholesterol, fat, protein, etc for each meal...but all the meals are GOOD for you! Not a lot of butter or bad cholesterol, really yummy, healthy meals!
Here's a nutrition fact I loved and made sure I practiced today:
"To be sure your family eats enough fruit and veggies serve 2 veggies or 2 fruits or one of each at every meal!"So at Breakfast today we had 2 fruits (bananas and strawberries with cereal), at Lunch we had a yogurt with cheese and crackers, and tuna with cut up carrots and cut up apple slices, and at Dinner we had chicken with potatoes, and carrots and green beans! It was so helpful to me with this little nutrition fact and reminder!
I figure if John is going to take the kids for a run every day in the double stroller after work, and then do sit ups and push ups with the kids, the least I can do is make sure we are ALL eating healthy!!! Right?
Have a great weekend! We will be in Doylestown with the WEAVERS! Our Labor Day tradition!
