Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed Our Children

Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed Our Children

Not a cookbook, Lunch Lessons is more of a guidebook that clarifies which foods are truly hazardous to children like trans-fats and processed foods, and offers substitutions and positive options that are surprisingly simple. There are some recipes as well as sections filled with tips on helping to transform school lunch programs and lists of resources with more information.

It's got a bunch of great meals that are very easy to prepare, but are also very healthy. Dr. Bowden simplifies healthy cooking, making it as straight forward as possible for the reader. His recipes are not just easy to follow, but they are delicious. I recently made his Thai Spiced Prawns and Curried Quinoa dishes for my Dad's birthday. The meal didn't take long to prepare, and it was a huge hit! No one even knew they were eating some of the healthiest foods under the sun! I highly recommend this book for any health minded cooks, parents, and dinner hosts out there! Worth mentioning also- Dr. Bowden included a section in his book with vegeterian and vegan meals, and in many recipes he will provide a vegeterian or vegan alternative.

Cellfood is one of those products you'll be skeptical about at first, but wonder why you ever questioned once you've used it. I first started using Cellfood because it had been recommended by several doctors in detox and nutrition books I have read. It is an oxygen based product which slowly delivers oxygens to cells and also releases minerals, metabolic enzymes, amino acids and electrolytes. This benefits energy levels and boosts the immune system. The concentrate also restores acidic pH, which is important to detoxification and healing functions in the body. I have to say, since using this product I have not been sick nearly as much, and my energy levels are much higher. It's relatively affordable, and very safe to use (no harmful fillers). It's worth a try.

  • This film is magical! Its about a woman who must supress her passion and instead channels them into her food. Through the magic of transference, anyone who eats her cuisine is overwhelmed with sexual desire.

The full moon, Brooklyn Heights and La Boheme all take a back seat to the romantic dramedy that unfolds within this movie. As Cher's character, a frustratingly practical and sardonic accountant, slowly unravels to reveal a heart full of love, passion and beauty, the movie begins to soar right along with her. The pivotal scene, set in a family kitchen at breakfast, is my favorite . . . and one that will feel familiar to anyone who has ever had to juggle the demands of love and family.

There are no cakes or cookies; nearly everything here is savory — and worthy of being served to adults, like lasagna and fish sticks from scratch.

They'd rather eat a chicken nugget than steamed broccoli sprinkled with lemon juice and olive oil. The Sneaky Chef provides recipes for foods that "sneak" some of those good things into kids' foods so that they'll never know just how healthy they're eating.
