Just a quick note to say hi to my Healthy Mama’s. I know I’ve been offline a lot lately as I gear up for two weeks of conducting the Healthy Family, Healthy You kids’ cooking camps. In addition, I’m busy planning my fall classes, which will now be every day for middle-schoolers; different from this past year when I taught elementary students once per week. I’m excited to incorporate more nutrition information and fun food writing into the cooking classes. It warms my heart to think I can help students make healthy decisions now and create life-long habits.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend. If you still need a couple of super quick tips, ideas and recipes for the fourth, I’ve got just what you need.
Lots of people travel with food for various reasons, such as picky kids, keeping to a specific diet, and expense. It’s always going to be cheaper to bring your own oatmeal to make with hot water in the hotel room, than it is to pay $25 for a breakfast buffet. It’s a lot healthier too! Sometimes, having your own food in between special travel meals is also just convenient, quick and easy – and of course almost always a wiser option than grabbing a muffin somewhere!
