Latest Happenings:

A few months ago when I relaunched my site I let you know that I will be sharing more of an inside look into how I feed my kids and the challenges I face around the table. Well, in case you missed it, I did just that in my latest post 10 Tips to Get Kids to Eat Vegetables. My once “gourmet little foodies” have become a little more selective lately, especially when it comes to vegetable consumption.

Whether you are a parent who has dealt with this issue in the past, is currently struggling, or never went through it, I want to hear from you about your experience feeding kids veggies. And if you don’t have kids, you may still find this post of interest as many people commented on Facebook, Instagram, and on the post itself regarding their husbands and boyfriends.

In other news, have you checked out my Media page recently? I’ve added a few new articles I have been quoted in lately, including one about dieting in kids, hacks to make packaged foods healthier, and why I don’t recommend juicing. I hope you find these articles interesting and helpful for your day to day life.

Now, to this week’s menu plan!
