WE are SO SUPER excited to share our next
FAMILY CHALLENGE FRIDAY!
Today’s Challenge: EAT SOME LEGUMES!*
(*** This link will only work for the month of August! So make sure to download quick!)
Legumes/Beans are one of the most nutrient dense foods, relatively low in calorie density and one
of the foods that is most common to many of the long-lived populations around the world. “Legumes are among the world’s most perfect foods. They stabilize blood sugar, blunt your desire for sweets, and prevent midafternoon cravings. Even a small portion can help you feel full. They can be flavored and spiced in interesting ways, and you can eat an unlimited quantity of them.” Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
THE REST OF THIS MONTH WE WILL BE HIGHLIGHTING
SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LEGUME RECIPES!
CHECK BACK OFTEN TO MAKE SURE YOU GET THEM ALL!
Details of our CHALLENGES:
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 recipe ideas 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 HEALTHY!
We can’t wait for you to try this!
