I recommend Trader Joe’s products often to my patients. They offer lots of great products with all natural ingredients. However, it’s always important to read the labels before purchasing. The other great thing about Trader Joe’s is that their food is affordable!!

It’s frustrating that very often there isn’t a Trader Joe’s near by.  I was very happy to discover that Amazon sells Trader Joe products on line. You can click on our Healthy Market Place tab to go straight to Amazon to see what other products are available too!

My kids love these brownie bars!

More and More Students Protesting About School Lunches!

It seems that kids are getting louder about getting their message across that they are not happy with the new foods in the schools.

First it’s videos on you tube, now it’s boycotts from school cafeterias and more and more food being thrown out in the trash.

Of course, kids are going to be resistant to change.  But, parents and teachers can help this process along. We need to keep talking to

our kids about making good choices and being healthy.
