So lets start by looking at kids eating healthy, then ourselves eating healthy, then finish up by talking about cooking as a way to achieve both First order of business: kids.

Don’t eat in front of the TV. Try to eat slower set a good example as adults All of these tools are important to help create a healthy perspective towards food Before we can tell kids to eat healthy, we have to first But college can be stressful.

The deeper the color, the more nutrients ex) spinach vs. iceberg
Do this by cooking quickly ex.) stirfry 2.Use herbs, vinegar, tomatoes, onions and/or fat-free or low-fat sauces or salad dressings 3.Use that freezer 4. Smoothies are bomb 5. Cut down on salt: instead use herbs, spices, lemon juice, hot chiles 6. Use fresh veggies. Or if you use canned, look for low-sodium 7. Use bananas or appelsauce in place of butter and lard in some baking recipes 8. Go whole wheat for breads, oatmeals and flour 9. Use plain fat-free or low-fat yogurt or fat-free or low-fat sour cream.Also fat-free milk or 1% milk instead of whole or reduced-fat (2%) milk Also, try to incorporate these superfoods into your diet/cooking. "Superfood" means they are packed with great nutrients. 1.Low fat or fat-free plain yogurt 2.Eggs 3.Nuts 4.Kiwis 5.Quinoa 6.Beans 8.Broccoli 7.Salmon 9.Sweet potatoes 10.Berries By using these great foods, you can make awesome and delicious meals.
