Bestowed Box of Healthy Food Product Samples - Review and Giveaway!!!

My older sister is a juicer / healthy food eating type of girl and I always admired her dedication...and shape...but it's just not me! Those who know me, know I'm not the healthiest eater. I choose to eat what tastes good. I like potatoes, ribs, wings, BBQ sauce and OMG french fries! Things that can be found in the freezer section and other things that will have me sitting back with my pants unbuttoned, uncomfortably full, but…

Leave the Colors in the Crayon Box

Recently, I did a post that included a recipe for homemade Macaroni & Cheese.  In that post, I was discussing the backlash that Kraft is receiving because of its refusal to eliminate artificial dyes in their American version of Macaroni & Cheese.  The reason I say “American version” is because they have…

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

As my beloved Chicago Cubs celebrate their Opening Day, I thought I’d talk today about making healthier choices at the ballpark.  As a baseball fan and someone who used to work in professional baseball, I can tell you that part of the overall experience is the food and drink.  It just isn’t realistic to expect anyone…

Breakfast - Most Important Meal of the Day

When I worked in our elementary school district, one of the most heartbreaking things I dealt with were the kids who came to school hungry.  Our school didn’t offer a lunch program, but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.  Our school didn’t have “cooking” equipment.  We basically only had ovens to heat up processed…

Hockey Themed Birthday Party Ideas

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/03/22/hockey-themed-birthday-party/

Our little guy, Rocco turned 5 on March 10th and being that his latest obsession is hockey & ice-skating, it was only fitting to throw him a hockey/skating themed party!

But here’s the catch.  I delivered our 3rd baby boy 2 weeks before his birthday so this party was thrown together last minute!  Why…

Rainbow Fruit Tray : A Preschool Snack

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/03/21/rainbow-fruit-tray-a-preschool-snack/

I signed up to bring Fresh Fruit for Roman’s pre-school class and when I showed up with this tray, I had signed up for the WRONG CLASS!  Wouldn’t you know, the wrong folder was on the counter at the wrong time when I scribbled our names in for the 21st of March.  Thankfully, Roman’s sweet…

Is your heart heading for disaster?

Have you been told by the doctor that you have high cholesterol? Does it concern you? I have and yes it does concern me. The build-up of plaque in the arteries, called Atherosclerosis, can be very serious. With an unhealthy diet, cholesterol collects in the artery walls and can cause deadly heart attacks. I for one, would love to be around to see my grandkids, if my son ever has any that is (he is a little shy, but that’s a whole other blog…lol). In my research, I have learned that certain…

Case of the Sneaky Spinach

The dilemma is probably as old as motherhood itself.  How DO you get your kids to eat their vegetables?  When I was a kid, I remember hating a LOT of things my mom put on my plate:  beets, apple sauce, mustard, spinach, radishes (still not a fan – sorry Mom) and a bunch of other things.  I always felt like they were on my plate to punish me for something I had done wrong.

As years went by, my taste buds matured and I developed a liking for everything on this list – except for…

My 7 Favorite Ways to Exercise With The Kids

When I was a youngster, you could hear all the mothers up and down the block saying the same thing:  “Go outside and play”.  And play we did!!  If one of the neighborhood kids was not outside playing with us, we automatically assumed that he or she was sick.  Nobody…

Food Waste Has Become a Big Global Issue

Growing up in a society that had a limited selection and shortage of certain foods, I became more aware of what food represents and what is its real value. Both of my grandparents had small farms with several domestic animals, and as a kid we used to help out in the garden and in the field a lot, weeding out vegetable beds, planting seeds, picking fruits and even digging out potatoes. The appreciation for our meal was that much greater, and we enjoyed every bit that was on the…
