Happy, Healthy Kids

Raising Happy Healthy Kids

This is a judgment free zone! Parents around the world are doing their very best with the knowledge they have to provide optimal care for their children. It is wonderful to comment and contribute in a respectful manner on my blog. Just remember to do it with love and understanding. In turn, know that I am doing the same. If you read an article I have written to provide useful information, it is not to condemn, judge, or push my agenda. It is all about sharing my passion, information, and helping you in your journey….Oh, and I would also love to revolutionize the way we view health to transform our disease management system to an actual health care system! WOOHOO. But let’s just start with making health FUN.

 

 

Damn Yummy!

I will be posting “Flipp’n Fast Food” recipes. These will all be gluten free meals that can be made in under 30min. So, frankly there should be no excuse not to eat healthy!!!

Nori Rolls! 

These can also be made as lettuce wraps!

In the “Flipp’n Fast Food” recipes I will be giving guidelines to meals. I believe recipes are merely guidelines; we should play, experiment, and make food that speaks to our own individual taste. However, I do know the analytical, architectural, engineer types that like to have detailed instructions–so you beautiful people, feel free to email me if “a smidgen, pinch, dab, or handful is too vague.” I will be more than happy to send complete directions.
