Growing up we always had a protein, a carb, and a veggie (yes, a veggie is technically a carb too) on our plate for dinner and to this day I still aim for it. Anyway, now that I am cooking for my granddaughter I find I am already trying to instill that behavior in her. Mind you, with a toddler, I might not always get the result I am hoping for. The other night Miss F wanted pasta (of course, who doesn’t?), I wanted steak and hubby didn’t care! So the above picture is what we had – the perfect compromise (or so I thought) and a type of meal that I was raised on. Miss F might not of eaten the veggie (even though the carrots were really for her) and very little of the steak, but at least she got a glimpse of a well-balanced meal. Funny how the more things change in your life the more things actually stay the same!

4 Misleading Hunger Signals You Need To Avoid – My Fitness Pal
We are all born with the ability to identify our own hunger. Ever watch a toddler? They ask for food when they are hungry and they most definitely do not eat when they are not. Somehow though many of us throughout our lives lose this basic ability. Surprisingly we can no longer actually tell if we are hungry and lots of times when we think we are, we honestly are not. Loved being interviewed for this story!!!
This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Quit Carbs – The Daily Meal
No matter what I still can’t understand WHY someone would want to quit carbs and WHY carbs continue to get a bad rap??!! I do think it is rather naive of someone in this day and age to think ALL carbs are created equal. There are many different types and it’s like putting a slice of pie in the same category as a slice of melon, it’s just, I don’t know – plain silly. But obviously people are still doing it and I do hope they read about the consequences!

It is not uncommon for many people to think that if a food isn’t “fresh” then it isn’t healthy. Sometimes that is true, BUT sometimes that is so NOT true. Thanks to my pal Samantha Cassetty, RDN for interviewing me, and some of my colleagues, on what canned foods we swear by. I think you will find this article a must read!
