No matter how much we try to avoid it, there are days when your family will need to eat “on the run”—whether it’s a snack while heading to soccer practice or dinner between said soccer practice and the school open house that immediately follows. Rather than resorting to junky fast food or expensive take-out, you can easily pack healthy, whole foods that satisfy hungry tummies and nourish active bodies away from home. All it takes is a little planning and creativity.
Satisfy crunch cravings with this colorful coleslaw, speckled with caraway seeds and tossed with healthy Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Red cabbage is rich in fiber, potassium and vitamins A, C, K and B-6—plus, it’s naturally sweet (not to mention eye catching!), making this salad the perfect side to serve with a savory springtime dish.
If a bowl of oatmeal is your go-to breakfast, you’ll enjoy this warm porridge made from buckwheat—a gluten-free, grain-like seed that has a nutty flavor and a soft, chewy texture when cooked. Like oatmeal, buckwheat is high in fiber and protein, and low in fat and cholesterol. In this recipe, it’s simmered in coconut water, then topped with coconut flakes, cranberry and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Good morning to you!
Granola makes a great cereal or healthy grab-and-go snack. Make your own and you can customize flavors and save money! This recipe yields about eight cups, and the cost is less than you’d spend on a package of the premade kind. Read more →
