Snack: The 4th meal of the day! Recipes and more with Toby Amidor

How many meals did you eat yesterday? Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner used to be considered the only times we sat down and ate. Now we not only don’t sit down and eat at each meal, we have added an afternoon snack meal. Some even snack during mid-morning. Why is this? Our lifestyles have changed. Consequently, so have our eating habits. Unfortunately for some this means eating more than we need resulting in excess pounds. And, too often nutrient packed foods get lost in the grab and go snack shuffle. Toby Amidor RD to the rescue! Not only is she founder of Toby Amidor Nutrition, she is a food writer and has authored cookbooks, her latest being The Greek Yogurt Kitchen. As a busy working mom, Toby has had to figure out how to balance and spread daily wholesome food needs into four meals. She has sorted out what we should serve for on-the-run or sit-down snacks in order to satiate while nourishing hungry children and adults. You are in for a treat – delicious snack solutions such as Raspberry Oat Bars, Mama’s Berry Smoothie, plus Kale, White Bean or Hummus Dips with carrot sticks. On a cold afternoon why not serve and enjoy a cup of warm Lentil or Black Bean Soup topped with a dollop of Greek Yogurt!

Look around you. The statistics are visible everywhere: 65% of adults in the U.S. are overweight.

This can be managed and reversed. David Katz, MD, an Internist and Preventive Medicine specialist, nationally recognized nutrition expert, and author of multiple books including Disease-Proof: The Remarkable Truth About What Makes Us Well has founded “Turn the Tide Foundation” dedicated to creating effective and practical programming and making that available free of charge.

Healthy Child, Healthy World. That’s makes sense. Challenge is, the increase number of children who are sick is rising at a disturbing rate because they are living in an increasingly unhealthy world. These days, at birth, on average, babies have about 200 unwanted chemicals already flowing through their veins.

These facts  motivated “Healthy Child, Healthy World” to empower parents to take action and protect children from harmful chemicals now found in the soil, food, housing materials, cleaning solutions and even the clothes children wear. Our guest, Alexandra Zissu, will explain how small changes can produce a healthy difference.

Picky Eater Challenge - Recipes

It seems there is a Picky Eater in every family.  I had one, an award winning one.  I know the challenges of hearing kids say, “I don’t like it. I don’t want it. I won’t try it, NO.” Their lips tighten shut. They also  gag and make “yucky, no way Jose!” faces.  It may be because it is green, has a “funny” texture, the food is mixed (casserole), it’s not sweet ... their reasons of refusal are endless and often creative. Is this phrase, “Thumbs Up, No Yucks” music to your ears?  If so, then this is the show for you.  Stacey Antine, RD, founder of HealthBarn USA, wrote the book, Appetite for Life: The Thumbs-Up, No-Yucks Guide to Getting Your Kid to Be a Great Eater.  Her goal is to have your kids eating fresh healthy foods while giving you a thumbs up with a smile.  She is our Co-Host this week.

Going Nuts Over Nuts - RECIPES

I go nuts every time I hear, “No Nuts!”  No nuts because they are fattening.  No tree nuts because of peanut allergies.  These are just a couple of misnomers about this rich source of protein, healthy fats and fiber. Nuts have many health benefits and it’s time to clear up the confusion about nuts. There are nut allergies that are real and need to be respected.  However, not all nuts are the same.  Thus, an allergy to one may not exclude one from eating others. Two of the best people to help you sort out the facts are joining us in our Family Food Experts Kitchen.  One is our guest, Amie Valpone, Culinary Nutritionist, Personal Chef, Media Personality, Editor-in-Chief for The Healthy Apple., and spokesperson for the California Almond Board.  She knows whole lot about nuts.  This week’s Family Food Experts co-host, Dr. Heather Manley, Naturopathic Physician and author of the Human Body Detectives educational books for children, knows the nutritional benefits of nuts, and how to pay attention to nut allergies.  Together, they will clear the air on this subject.
