Healthy Turkey Toasts with the Tots

Posted by rosanne walsh on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, In : Community Programs 
Another fun pinterest-inspired festive, healthy snack craft with the children of Good Shepherd preschool. We made these whole grain turkey toasts using whole wheat bread, spread with apple butter as the "glue" and used cranberries and
raisons, as well as whole grain cereal and pretzels to decorate its feathers made from sliced bread. The kids had fun making their own edible crafts after we talked about whole grains and why they are so much healthier than processed grains, being full of fiber a...

Slow Cooker Vegan Vegetable Farro Minestrone

Posted by rosanne walsh on Thursday, November 14, 2013,

Day 18 of my 21 day vegan challenge. And its freezing here in Boston. Three things have become blatantly apparent to me in the past three weeks. 

1. Being a vegan is not nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be

2. The slow cooker my sister gifted for me for Christmas last year has never seen more use

3. My days of eating lots of salad in the winter are dwindling - soups are  warming to the body and just as healthy

To elaborate a bit on #1. I was always somewhat inti...

Posted by rosanne walsh on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, In : Community Programs 

The students and families of the Good Shepherd School in Charlestown were the lucky recipients to a generous donation of UNREAL candy from the local Boston based company. Halloween was never so sweet - their yummy candy served as a nice healthier alternative to some more traditional favorites. The candy is made with no hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, artificial colors, chemical preservatives, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Best of all, for those of us familiar with ...

Healthy Snacking Lesson Program Launch

Posted by rosanne walsh on Monday, November 4, 2013, In : Community Programs 

CAPE is proud to begin offering healthy snacking lessons at the Good Shepherd preschool in Charlestown, MA.

Our program kick off took place in October following National Kale Day, where we offered students an opportunity to tear up kale leaves that we turned into kale chips, which they were happy to...

DIY Oven Baked Chips

Posted by rosanne walsh on Monday, November 4, 2013, In : The Art of Healthy Eating 
Everyone loves a good crunchy chip every now and again - so great along side a sandwich at lunch or as a stand alone snack while watching a movie. But what we keep hearing about in the media is that most commercial chips are made from genetically engineered ingredients, and also cooked with trans fats. Neither of which are good for your health - trans fats are artery clogging and can lead to heart disease over time and GMO foods are considered carcinogenic to the body. Mercola.com goes as far...

Fennel Cannellini Bean Soup

Posted by rosanne walsh on Sunday, November 3, 2013,
The Vitamix is such a great tool to make healthy soups in the winter - the powerful blending technology offers great flexibility since it offers the speed to blend to just the right creamy or chunky consistency. And since soup is a meal that can be made quickly on the weekend and freezes well into individual portions that can easily be reheated as a lunch or dinner up to 3 months later - its a great option for singles and families alike to stock up on!!!

I was really excited to make this fenne...

Kale, Cauliflower and Quinoa

Posted by rosanne walsh on Friday, November 1, 2013, In : The Art of Healthy Eating 
We have heard countless times that there are many benefits to a vegetarian or dare I say vegan diet. Lose weight, gain health, feel great etc - who WOULDN'T want that for themselves and for their family? What makes most people cringe at the thought of going meat and dairy free is the thought of what do I eat on such a restrictive diet? Can I live on tofu alone?
Now that I am on day 6 of my personal vegan experiment or almost 30% into my 21 day vegan challenge (the big 4-0 is around the corner...
