Berries are known for their high levels of phytochemicals—naturally occurring nutrients that help protect our cells from damage.
The flavonoids found in berries not only give berries their characteristic colors, but are also responsible for their cancer-fighting benefits.
We are excited to make these Very Berry Cakes next week with a class of young chefs! Whoever said cake can't be healthy hasn't met this berry-full breakfast cake!

We recently cooked a recipe we call Energy Bites and we think these treats are so packed full of healthy energy that you feel like you are chomping on the sun! We start with creamy sunbutter, made from sunflower seeds. Have you ever seen baseball players chewing on seeds? Eating these seeds helps curb hunger pangs while providing many nutrients like Vitamin E, Magnesium, and selenium. All of which are vital to our health! We add in heart healthy oats, hemp and flax seed, and a few choco chips. Yum

I can't think of a better way to start off the school vacation, then to cook with 12 young chefs to be! We created a Broccoli Mac and Cheese with Local Cheddar, organic milk, and beautiful broccoli. Yum, and so good for you, Broc is a member of the Brassica family and these lovely little tree shaped veggies are packed with vitamins and minerals. In fact, of the Brassica veggies, Broccoli contains the most carotenoids, a plant pigment that the body converts to vitamin A. And, Broccoli is and excellent source of Vitamin K, which helps preventing osteoporosis, a condition where the bones become weak and brittle. Vit K is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning you need to eat fat with is so your body and absorb it! Mac and Cheese is perfect to absorb the vitamins in the broccoli. Thank you Cary Memorial Library for supporting healthy local cooking and eating!

I love teaching kids and families about good nutrition and I do that by teaching them how to cook. Today I teamed up with my incredibly talented colleagues at Kids Cooking Green for my first in-person cooking class in well over a year … And we made frozen fruit pops with the cutest kids ever! We used peaches, strawberries, bananas, raspberries, and blueberries and turned them into magically delicious frozen treats… With just a hint of maple syrup to amplify the natural sweetness of the fruit!  ** I could go for a frozen peach push-up pop right about now. -- What about you? What's your favorite frozen fruit pop combo?
