Curious on Concepts & Children

I recently had the privilege to step into the kitchen of my friend’s mother-in-law, as she prepared an authentic Chinese meal. I have been inspired to visit other “grandma kitchens” in hopes to revive our traditions, honor the elders & gain their wisdom in an effort to preserve the integrity of my own kitchen. We are a pop and pour society, and if we do not learn the art of cooking, it will be lost. Our children, and generations to follow, will pay the price. I am working on a blog-compiling my experiences in this pursuit and hopefully some good recipes too.

In the meantime…..while in that ‘ancient’ kitchen, I stumbled across an individual who is part of an admirable project. One that reaches out to our children, respects our modern living standards, and most notably, donates a portion of profit to fighting world hunger. A model of change, one snack at a time. Here you will find their mission. Meet

Our Mission

We focus on snacks because that’s the easiest habit to change. Do you know that the average American eats almost 25% of their calories from snacking? In fact, snacking is the leading cause of childhood obesity. NatureBox helps you get more out of your day without wasting calories on the bad stuff.

Food You Can Trust

Every NatureBox item is carefully sourced and nutritionist approved. Everything inside your NatureBox will be guilt free so that you can feel great about what you’re eating. You can trust that our products will be made from the most wholesome ingredients and will be minimally processed, if at all.

Together, We Give

NatureBox works with WhyHunger to solve the problems of hunger and poverty, while working to make more nutritious food available to everyone. Aside from making donations to WhyHunger, we also donate our healthy snacks directly to WhyHunger partners, including community-based organizations, emergency food providers and summer meal programs for low-income children.

Other concepts–a fun movie recommendation for all those healthy, earth savvy children out there:

“Curious George Goes Green.” Brought to you by PBS.

A fun craft idea. Materials needed: flowers and contact paper. Press flowers (some cardboard and rubber bands suffice). When dry, place between contact paper. Makes pictures, book marks. etc. Beautiful. A great book to mark–The Magic School Bus. Any of them will do.

As for food–Making your own chicken nuggets is more affordable and more delicious. Chop up organic breast, roll in egg & then breadcrumbs. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.

Smoothies pack a punch. Zucchini and carrots make any bread taste better. Nuts rock. Popcorn pops. Apples grow on trees. And trail mix is literally nuts and dried fruit and anything else you can fancy tossed in a bowl. Go healthy kids!
