My first organized exercise experience was in 1985 (I was 12 years old), and my mom brought me to Jazzercise with her! I actually remember the facility clear as it were yesterday. The Olivia Newton John records were playing and all the housewives wore leotards with tights and leg warmers! Ha ha.. formal exercise sure has evolved over the last thirty years. And these days it’s more fun than ever!
The opportunities for kids to be active today would make any kid have a hard time agreeing that they were actually exercising- in fact, I guarantee they would just say they had a blast being active! It was easy to find crazy races for naked people, extreme distances, and all you can eat donuts, but I wanted to find some for my kids! Adults shouldn’t have ALL the fun!

All of us know that vegetables are good for us, but with our busy schedules, who has time to eat properly? We are supposed to eat a rainbow of vegetables on our Food Plate every day, but how is it possible to get all of the servings that the USDA recommends?
This banana bread is moist and delicious, made with white whole wheat flour, sweet roasted strawberries and ripe bananas, with just a smidgen of butter, so you can enjoy a slice without the guilt!
I had some bananas that were getting brown and I was really in the mood for banana bread, so I combined the two for a delicious quick bread. You can turn these into muffins if you prefer. In the past I attempted this recipe, but the strawberries released too much liquid which made the bread a little too moist. Roasting the strawberries is the perfect solution, most of the liquid dries out from roasting so you get the flavor of the strawberries in every bite.
Cucumbers are such a great vegetable because they can be so versatile. Not to mention low calorie, high water content, and are a good source of vitamins and minerals. Surprisingly, cucumbers are one of the lowest calorie veggies out there. There is a food rumor that I have heard all my life that you actually burn more calories eating celery than are in it. Not true! Its not true with cucumbers either, but it probably comes close We love eating cucumbers all year long, but especially in the summer time because they are so refreshing. One of the reasons their calorie content is so low is because their water content is so high. We love to eat cucumbers just sliced up with a little vinegar on them, but this method of serving cucumbers makes them into an entire meal. If your child has a gluten allergy, it is a great alternative to bread for a sandwich. We have 4 different ideas for you to serve these crunchy snacks up!
