This is lunch for our kids…REALLY?

I just can’t quite believe that this is going on. This is the age of childhood obesity, Michelle Obama on the front lines fighting to get kids healthy, local PTAs taking over their school cafeterias in order to bring local food into their schools…I could go on and on.  So where is the disconnect?

Read it, you won’t believe it!

Another Reason To STOP Drinking Soda!

Please read this if you are still drinking soda!  This study was done using two cans of soda per day. A can of soda is 12 oz. That’s 24 oz of soda per day used in this study. If you’re driving through McDonald’s to grab a medium soda (21 oz…) or a large (32 oz) read on to learn what you could be doing to your kidneys.  Scary to think what we are doing to the tiny people in our lives when we think we are “treating” them to a soda!
Peace, greens, and H2O 🙂

Eating Out With the Kids

If you are out and about this weekend with the kids and want to try a new place for lunch or dinner here in Cary, try Zoe’s Kitchen. We went there for lunch today and they have a great kid’s menu. I loved the “white upon request”, otherwise they serve wheat and decaf unsweetened herbal tea as an alternative to soda or juice. I snapped a pic of the menu while I was there so you could take a look. I ordered a half of a tuna sandwich and a cup of the braised beans for myself and it was super yummy. Order at the counter and they will bring it to your table. Their service was friendly and fast. It’s a nice healthy alternative to other options around town. Oh, I forgot to tell you that I ordered the humus too, really good!

Zoe’s Kitchen is new to the Cary area with a location in the Park West Village just off of Morrisville Parkway. Check out the link below for a location in your area.
