Many Friday's during the year, we will share with you one of our popular FAMILY CHALLENGES!
Eating healthy can be hard...especially for our children who are bombarded with disease-promoting foods at every turn. We have found that our children eat far healthier when they know the reason "WHY" they should, and just as important, they participate in a CHALLENGE (complete with check boxes!)
Our FAMILY CHALLENGES provide BOTH!
They get the "WHY"
AND the fun and motivating CHECK BOXES!
(Bonus: They also give you recipes to help you achieve success)
These have been life-changing in our families! We have had children who gag when we ask them to eat a piece of celery to seeing the same child eat a whole english cucumber with not a single complaint.
You can also create special rewards for the children who complete the challenges...it works wonders!
Just picture it, your whole family...
working together to eat MORE PLANTS and GET HEALTHIER!
We can't wait for you to try this!

Secret Strawberry Smoothie
1/2 Cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Frozen Pineapple Juice*
1/2 Frozen Banana
Frozen or Fresh Strawberries (as many as you would like)
Mix altogether in a high powered blender. This smoothie has such a slushy type texture...super yummy!
*This is the secret to the texture & taste!
Buy a large container of pineapple juice. Pour it into a container and place in your freezer for 4 hours- or until slightly frozen. Then WHIP it with a electric beater for 2 minutes. Place back in your freezer until completely frozen (6+ hours). Then when using it for your smoothies, you can scoop out the frozen juice with a ice cream scoop! Super fun! I'll post detailed picture of this "secret" soon!
