"Super Awesome Hydration Mom", as I'll dub her, went out and bought her kids their own bottles to make their own fruit-infused waters, or "Waters With A Twist". Super Hydration Mom took a few more Waters With A Twist postcards for her three kids, some recipes for Seared Greens and the Healthy Snack Food Guidelines put out by the Ulster County Healthy Department. She told me that she was going to review food labels on packaged foods for fat, sugar and salt content with her kids as an educational experience. My Educator dreams are coming true! What could be better that people passing on good information!
Taking a note from Super Awesome Hydration Mom, make the time to gear yourself up for food success! Nourish your inner kid with a setup for Waters With A Twist, with some herbal tea, with food prep... Give yourself the luxury of a grocery list, of a new water bottle, of a seasonally appropriate salad or smoothie.
At yet another Food Tasting at Peters Market in Napanoch I was greeted by a woman who called me the Salad Lady. I had distributed samples of chick pea salad and tabouleh the month before, in March. April's offerings of raw kale salad and mixed green salad were a hit. I had five young ladies ranging in ages from 5 to 15 as well as two employees, tell me they had never tasted kale before... and that they liked it!
Eating healthfully on a budget can be delicious and fun :) Plus, it might make you famous, in a good way!
