Welcome to another FoodPlay Friday!
With April on the horizon, National Nutrition Month is nearly over. We hope you’ve enjoyed Barbara’s column, Hands-On Nutrition, in its daily, bite-sized doses. You’ll be seeing more of her on the pages of this blog in the coming months.
With spring weather becoming the norm, smoothies are the topic of choice in the blogosphere this week, including a Green Smoothie from Real Mom Nutrition, a Butternut Squash Avocado Kale Smoothie from PUREmamas, and Super Healthy Kids‘ Green Smoothies with Florida Orange Juice. Dates are popular this week as well, as seen in these 10-Minute Date Balls from PUREmamas and Date-alicious Dips and Snacks from Super Healthy Kids. Also, Kitchen Stewardship takes a look at Date Sugar as an alternative sweetener.
Healthy Eats has advice for vegetarians this week on how to Get Your Vegetarian Plate in Shape, while Healthy Child Healthy World offers advice for non-veggies in How Can I Eat More Vegetables? And both The Jolly Tomato and Hounds in the Kitchen have some words to say about gardening.
Some of my favorite recipes in the blogosphere this week include Prevention RD‘s Chickpea Biryani, Happy Little Bento‘s Eggplant Curry, and The Kids Cook Monday‘s Cranberry Goat Cheese Chicken. I also appreciated Super Healthy Kids‘ take on making rice balls with brown rice.
That’s all for this week! See you next FoodPlay Friday!
