what to read and watch

just finished this book…

A fascinating book about getting kids to eat a wide variety of foods that are healthy and not having them snack constantly. One of the reasons it is so interesting is because in a lot of ways it seems so simple…so common sense. Like, if you don’t snack midmorning, you’ll be hungrier for lunch. If you eat a well-balanced meal, with high-satiety items (a good mix of carbs, protein, and a small amount of fat) ypu’ll be more full through out the day until your next meal. That being said, it was thought provoking and had lots of good ideas for parents. Some fun recipes are included too.

Can we just talk for a moment about the Olypmics? I am a little bit obsessed. Actually, a lot, if we are honest. I get a little distracted at work watching them, but pretty much the Olypmics win over anything else. Swiiming and running are the best, but I will watch anything. Anything.

Read this book: French Kids Eat Everything

Don’t watch these movies: A Little Bit of Heaven or Mirror Mirror (I have yet to see one good rendition of Snow White), but be excited about all the amazing movies coming out (Anna Karenina, The Great Gatsby, Les Miserables, and The Hobbit).
