Don’t Skimp on your Kids Health-Quick Recipes that Nourish!

Good afternoon!  I have some healthy recipes I would like to share with you.  Whether you are a Michigan mom or visiting reader, this health solution will benefit anyone who is interested in bettering their health.

Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution, wants to educate moms/women on the importance of nutrition and that we don’t have to “skimp” on it because we lead busy lives.

Kimberly would like to share with us some quick and easy recipes that require very little planning and minimal preparation.  They are also very healthy items that believe it or not, children will love!  They also sound fabulous and I cannot wait to give these a try!

Breakfast Ideas
1.Banana Breakfast Wrap
1 sprouted whole grain tortilla
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond butter
1 banana, diced
Spread almond butter on tortilla.
Top with bananas and roll.
2. Oatmeal Alternative:Instead of sugary instant oatmeal try a steal-cut oatmeal (look for products labeled gluten free), Kasha cereal, or buckwheat granolas are great choices.
