Soups for Winter

leave a comment »

Soups are the best way to get our kids to eat their veggies. Make them from scratch and they should be appreciated.   The bodies of our little ones are so challenged by their tics that their immune system could be weakened. It is up to us to help their immune system as much as possible by getting our kids to eat properly. And that means getting their servings of fruits and vegetables. I serve smoothies all year long, salads on warm days and soups on colds days. The wonderful thing about soups is that you can also prepare a big amount and eat it over several days.

My son prefers the veloutes which are creamy and tasty (if you do a Google search you can easily find a couple of recipes) and I like them cause they are simple and get the kids used to the taste of vegetables.

Nutrition and Tourette

leave a comment »

Good nutrition is essentional for good health. There are four basic nutrients the body needs: water, carbs, fats and protein. Half the US population suffers from a deficiency of one imortant nutrient. Nutrients act together so to correct a deficieny you need to add it to the others, ie eat a varied diet. To help my son get plenty of nutrients we make him a smoothie every day.

Smoothies have carbs, fats and protein! Today my husband took what he could find and blended it all together. A handful of spinach, grapes, OJ, apples, oranges, a banana, chia seeds, dried apricots and cabbage, raisin, almond milk and presto! The dried fruits sweetened it and the apple and oranges made it taste great.

A proper diet is necessary for health. And our kids need all the help they can get!
