Welcome to another FoodPlay Friday!
Though cold and damp have so far been the keywords for spring, here in western Massachusetts, the season has still inspired a new health regimen for my family. And as we pay careful attention to what we’re eating, I’ve found myself scouring the healthy food blogosphere more thoroughly than usual, on my quest for fresh flavors that will keep me on track.
With that in mind, today’s column is devoted to everything I want to eat in the coming week, thanks to my favorite food bloggers!
Red and green were themes in the blogosphere this week, beginning with striking red in Prevention RD‘s Penne in Roasted Beet Sauce and Mom’s Kitchen Handbook‘s Beautiful Beet Hummus. And for dessert, don’t miss these Homemade Strawberry Creamsicles from Super Healthy Kids.
Super Healthy Kids also brings the green with this avocado-heavy Brainy Breakfast Salad. And for more avocado goodness, check out Healthy Eats‘ Avocados 5 New Ways. Wanna mix up your red and green? Take a look at Weekly Bites‘ Honey Lime Melon Salad.
Other dishes that caught my eye this week, include this PB & T (Peanut Butter and Tuna) wrap from junior high student Justin Brownell, by way of the Healthy Kids Challenge blog, these taco ideas from the Food Network’s Healthy Eats, and this Black Bean Manga Quinoa recipe by way of The Kids Cook Monday.
It’s going to be a delicious week!
That’s all for this week! See you next FoodPlay Friday!
