5 Healthy Meal Ideas Your Kids Will Love

Great things come in little packages and meal times are no exception. Let’s face it – we have a hard time convincing our kids eat healthy food. They come to the table and ask for fried chicken and that’s it. We don’t have to punish them with leafy greens; we can provide an alternative to ‘gross looking food’.


Here are some healthy meals your kids will absolutely love:

  1. Mini Bacon and Potato Frittatas

Trade a bowl of milk and cereals for protein-packed and fiber-rich mini frittata made with morning favorites like eggs, bacon and potatoes. This healthy meal will keep your kids focused and alert the whole day. These frittatas can be cooked ahead of time and microwave-heated to serve immediately for morning rush hour. Add a glass of milk and sliced fruit on the side for a more balanced meal.

  1. Sliders with Shallot-Dijon Relish

Kids adore burgers make your little ones some baby burgers ideal for pint-sized diners. Go for lean ground beef and if they prefer for the usual toppings, top theirs with low-fat cheese, tomatoes and relish. Sliders make it more ideal for counting calories – these baby burgers amount to less than 175 calories each.

  1. Bite-sized Tofu

Tofu is naturally charged with a lot of good stuff like calcium, fiber, healthy fat, iron, folic acid and protein.  Start training your kids to eat clean and healthy even at a young age.

  1. Peanut Butter – Banana Swirls

Spread peanut butter and bits of banana on a flat tortilla, roll it up and slice them to little pieces of wedges. Insert a toothpick through each piece and serve. These swirls provide heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fat, potassium and fiber.

  1. Carrot Pancakes

There’s always a special place for cake in every kid’s heart. Kids don’t normally like carrots but if it’s anything sweet they’ll grab it. They’re absolutely delicious plus abundant in nutrients with ingredients like carrots, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and canola oil.

7 Cheap and Healthy Lunch Ideas for Work

Are you struggling to save money by finding ways to prepare inexpensive meals you can take to work? You can save money by preparing your lunch meals at home rather than buying a $10 burger at Mcdonald’s, plus, you will be able to gain control of a healthier and cleaner way of eating. If you are really feeling bloated or like your insides need a thorough cleaning you may want to try to go on a hardcore teatox diet where you only drink detox teas for a few days. That will help flush out the toxins and make you feel like a new person.

Here are some cheap, delicious and healthy lunch ideas for work:

  1. Ravioli and Vegetable Soup

Whether fresh or frozen, ravioli can be prepared in minutes and made into a hearty main course. Shop for whole-wheat or whole-grain ravioli at any supermarket. You can use Tortellini as alternative.

  1. Red Curry Lentil Soup

Inspired by Dal, an Indian dish meaning “split” referring to the split peas or lentils used as a main ingredient. Its aroma is strong from ginger, curry, cinnamon and cumin giving a tasty flavor.


  1. Broccoli and Ham Pasta Salad

Great for entrée, this pasta-salad is loaded with broccoli and pepper, smoky ham and sweet raisins giving it a punch of flavors.

  1. Mediterranean Wrap

Spice up the workplace with an exotic meal like this wrap stuffed with chicken breast, couscous, lemon and herbs. It’s easy to take away and will make no mess on your office table. Prepare a couple and chill to eat for quick breaks.

  1. Tofu Curry Salad

Add a twist to the classic chicken curry recipe by trading chicken bits with tofu, spread on toast or scoop onto a pile of leafy greens for scrumptious lunch.

  1. Salmon Sandwich

Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fats and other nutrients – serve on lemon-spiced pumpernickel bread for an instant lunch snack.

  1. Creamy Taragon Chicken Salad

Oven-poach the chicken in broth to intensify the flavor, keeping it moist and succulent. Combine it with sweet grapes and fresh tarragon making an elegant version of chicken salad mixed with a bed of greens and nuts.

Day Fifty Six

This morning I was up at midnight so I had a bowl of cereal then and another  when I woke up @ 6:30 am . Of course it was vegan approved and I drank it with Very Vanillia silk!  I didn’t eat anything for lunch, but I ate a whole sleeve of Ritz Brown Sugar crackers and for dinner I had Amy’s Kitchen Texas vegan burger on vegan bread with tofutti motserrella( bad spelling) and ketchup. It was delicious. I’ve been keeping hydrated with lots of water!  Thanks for reading!


Day Sixty Seven

okay guys so I know I haven’t posted in a while and I just want you guys to know that yes I am still vegan. I can’t write a real post right now but I’ll pos later!

: D

Day Seventy Four

Okay so I’m finally back!!! Today I got back from my holiday break in Miami! I would have posted on Tofurkey day, but I had no internet capablities. :C I havw to admit that my Tofurkey day dinner was lacking in the variety catagorey. But, it was still yummy. I had cranberry sauce and a vegan burger, It was the Teaxas one from Amy’s kitchen and It was quite delightful :] I even have a picture. I enjoyed some Very Vanilla Silk Soy Milk with my meal!DSC01680

Day 143

Okay so I know its been a while, but i just lost interest in writing this blog. I cannot guarantee that I will be updating on a regular bases. I was just drinking a single serve very vanilla soy milk and researching  what products I use that contain GMOs(Genetically modified ingredients.) Silk Milk doesn’t :D This is very good because I’m trying not to eat products containing GMOs. My History teacher has been encouraging us to avoid GMOs and products by Monsanto after we viewed a film called Food Inc. in class. I strongly encourage you to view this film because it is very enlightening. I have also read a book recentally, called Skinny Bitch it is by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouine me a very deep look into what goes into our food and what goes n at slaughter houses. I will cautin however that there is some strong langauge, but I would hope that wouuldn’t stop you from checking the book out because considering the type of music we all listen to a few curse words shouldn’t scare you. I would also like to mention that I have begun using Victoria Secret’s new Vegan line which I find to be amazing. I’m using the Soothing line and they smell and feel great! I’ve also been using The vegan Berry Lip Butter( the smell makes my toes curl)  which is great for moisture!! Well, that’s all for now because I have some cleaning to do.

TTFN(ta ta for now),



Okay so I cannot be bothered to calculate what day this is anymore. How’s life been treating you my loves? Life has been rather well to me. I have started to notice that I’ve lost some weight. Now while certain family members would use this against me as reasons I should not continue with this lifestyle, I see it as a wonderful thing because the weight loss is due to my lack of junk food. I no longer stuff candy ar any old junkfood into my mouth whenever the chance presents itself. I’m looking forward to my mother cooking me a delicious meal of tofu chili tonight and hopefully she’ll stop by Publix and pick up some tofutti better than sour cream so that it won’t be quite so spicy. I’m about to go look up how to scramble tofu and maybe have some for breakfast. Oops I forgot my mom’s making the chili tomorrow night. Today she’s supposed to make me so pasta with a vegan approved sauce and of course pasta that is also okay for me to consume.I’m considering having some of my Amy’s Soup when I get back from school, but I’m not sure if I’ll feel like cooking it when I get home from a gruesome day at school. Well, thanks for reading and that’s all for now!

Purely Decadent Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Purely Decadent or even Heavenly are the only words that could possibly begin to describe what this rich, flavorful delicacy did to my taste buds. I assure you it was an orgasm to my mouth. Turtle Mountain knew what they were doing when they got into the Ice cream business. Of course I was hesitant to pick this beauty out from the freezer section of my local Publix seeing as it was made with coconut milk, which i am not a big fan of. There are several reasons I choose this one of course. The picture on the front had my mouth watering upon sight, but the small carton caused me a dilemma. For you see I knew it would not last long. Alas it must have been the  cookie dough that made me select it. I have been vegan since last September and had not gotten my sugar hungry paws on cookie dough ice cream since before I converted. I was so eager I had it open as soon as we got into the car and began scooping it out with my hands. The certified vegan symbol made it quite easy for me. So alas I choose this Purely Decadent instead of my usual So Delicious! Visit the freezer section at your local Publix, but be prepared for the addiction that you are sure to develop as soon as it touches your tongue.

St. Ives Vegan Skincare

  Everybody knows St.Ives skincare! They’ve been around for what seems like forever. I already knew they were cruelty-free(no animal testing) , but now they’ve  got a ton of product that contain no animal ingredients.  I actually just stumbled upon it in the store. What store? Well, none other than Wal-Mart. Finally vegan skincare that I don’t have to travel all the way across town to get! Not only is it convenient, its also really amazing. I got the St.Ives Soothing  oatmeal and Shea butter advanced body moisturizer. I also got its’ body wash counter part, St’ Ives oatmeal and Shea butter moisturizing body wash. I’ve got annoyingly sensitive skin. Since summer is fast approaching the dreaded fleas have returned. Just one bite has my skin breaking out in little bumps. So coming home the only thing I want to do is relax in a nice shower and get rid of the itch. St. Ives makes it happen with its soothing body wash and lotion. They really soothe! Both products are made with natural ingredients and contains no Parabens or Phthalates. The quality you expect of St.Ives without the gross, bad for you ingredients. If you are looking for more all natural vegan products you should look at the stuff on ecokarma. Their website has plenty of ideas for going green!

Green Day Cafe

I recently had my first fast food experience since going vegan! Where, you ask? Green Day Cafe! I enjoyed the Seven Layer Rice Bowl(make sure to ask for the vegan version!)  along with an Ice Cold Viva-Blast. When I say yum i mean it. I didn’t order any sides, but it came with a pickle slice on the side and it had to be the best pickle to ever mix with my saliva. It didn’t seem like much food especially on a tummy as empty as mine was, but by the time I’d shoveled it down my throat I could barely walk. It was really nice to be able to actually go through a drive-through and order a delicious meal. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone trying to live a healthier lifestyle.
