Wonderful Lesson From the Taste Section

One of my guilty pleasures is the Taste section in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Why guilty? Because it is pretty much the only reason we haven’t canceled our newspaper subscription and gone to a more environmentally conscious, electronic format for receiving our daily news! Every Thursday I look forward to reading about new local restaurants and archiving special Minnesota recipes like Cider Braised Pheasant and Scandinavian Meatballs.

The other day, the Taste section had a great article on the importance of involving your family in meal planning. It is a real simple concept, but I thought so important and worth sharing! Read it here.

One of the most important things we can teach our children is how to feed themselves well. They will take these lessons with them when they become young adults and beyond. And working together in the kitchen is a great way to spend time with your kids, partner or friends!

I believe that 2 year olds to 80 year olds can learn to try and even enjoy new (and healthier!) foods. So explore the parameters of the grocery store, buy a variety of healthy foods and try out new recipes. It is not that hard…especially when you enlist the help of others in your household!

Enjoy your morning,
