Healthy foods that give kids energy

Spring means baseball and other outdoor sports for children and while getting physical activity is great, busy parents often opt for unhealthy fast food choices.

You can eat healthy meals on a budget

How much do you spend on groceries? The USDA maintains that careful shopping and cooking meals at home from scratch allows families to enjoy a variety of healthy, lower cost foods. I decided to test this theory by spending $38 at a local store for a week’s worth of groceries for myself. 3SquaresVT, formerly known as food stamps, is the federal USDA program administered in Vermont by the Department for Children and Families. Its purpose is to help stretch food dollars, allowing greater access to healthy, nutritious food. The average...

Eat Healthy (And Lose Weight) on Only $8 Per Day!

Posted by on Oct 1, 2012 in Blog | Comments Off on Eat Healthy (And Lose Weight) on Only $8 Per Day!

You’re saying “not possible!” I know, I hear that a lot. There is this misconception that eating a healthy diet is more expensive than eating a junk diet. True, if you think loading your shopping cart with low-fat, sugar-free, low-calorie processed snacks is the answer to healthy eating and weight loss. Eating processed foods that are “low” on that and “free” of this is expensive.

How To Eat Healthy When No One Else Will

Granny’s German Chocolate cake oozing with caramel icing or some such confection lived permanently on the countertop! A few feet away, a large squeaky kitchen drawer doubled as a bread basket, chock full of cookies, cheesy crackers, and chips.
