In today's article I'm going to discuss buying meat from butchers and some of the advantages of buying from butchers over non-butchers. These include:
If you’re looking for a food gift idea for yourself or someone else I’d like to recommend Indy Power’s cookbook The Little Green Spoon. Both I and Indy studied the same course in Nutrition & Health Coaching at the IINH. Her passion (like myself), is honest to goodness, healthy food with real recipes; to nourish your body from the inside out.
In this months long post Im going to promote the benefits of cooking with your kids. It is never too soon to get your kids involved in healthy eating. Kids love the attention, so cooking together is a great way to spend time together. Cooking is a life-long skill and is fun tasting the results. Kids can start cooking as young as 2 years of age, once the tasks are age appropriate.
Following on from an previous post whereby I recommended the Burren Nature Sanctuary (http://growinghealthyeaters.ie/childrens-healthy-eating-information/recommendation-for-healthy-eating-out-fun-for-all-the-family.html), this month Im writing about the Slieve Aughty Centre.
Parents often ask me where I get some of the food and brands I recommend. Of course supermarkets have lots of healthy options for children these days but they don't have the full range of better quality foods available. Therefore a health food store is always a good place to get these foods that may not be available elsewhere.
