‘Pizza Arms’!: My daughter had been taking lessons with Maki Swim since she was 4 months old. She was 3 years old when she fell in the pool. Prior to this incident, I was Continue reading
Healthy families thrive together! Looking for an easy, healthy recipe the whole family will LOVE? Here’s my one-pan vegetable meal!
One sweet potato (or white potato), 2 zucchini, 1 bunch of asparagus, 1 box of
mushrooms (sliced), half a jalapeno (optional) or substitute a bell pepper or
any other kind of pepper. Peel and chop potato, place in a skillet with some
zero calorie non-stick spray and ¼ cup of water. Once potatoes start to become
soft (test by poking a fork in), add chopped zucchini and asparagus (discard
ends and slice lengthwise and then in half), stir frequently. Add in peppers
and mushrooms. If you used sweet potatoes, then season to taste with honey,
yellow curry and nutmeg! Kids WILL love this (and even dads too), my daughter
thinks the sweet potatoes are candy. If you used white potatoes, you may prefer
to season with garlic and curry, salt and pepper. For a true one-pan meal, you
can add any kind of cooked sausage or tofu and voila! I served this dish
along-side a fillet of salmon!
Spring into Spring with the entire family! Plant vegetables/flowers. Bring the kids with you to the gardening store to learn about all the different vegetables and plants,
differing textures and colors etc. Have your kid/s pick out their favorites
(making sure it’s season appropriate & with the right about of sun &
water, etc. Ask an associate if you’re not sure). Plant together! I pre-made my
own raised vegetable beds (research before doing this because you need treated
wood and an EPA approved sealant). The kids will enjoy watching these grow,
watering them, and picking the vegetables, fruits or flowers when they bloom!
They’ll be so proud and learn a lot while giving thanks back to Mother Nature,
all at the same time. Spring is the perfect time to plant before Summer.
March Kid’s Night Out was a success! Thanks to everyone who came, we had a lot of fun swimming with you and look forward to the next event on April 20th! Reserve your space, this is a great way for kids to swim with their friends and for you to have a few kid-free hours!
