These No Fry Chicken Nuggets are better than the best! So easy.  Key: buy taste chicken breasts from naturally raised chickens.  Cut them into nuggets sizes, sprinkle both sides with paprika, dip them in egg and then into a bag of  a crumbled crackers (used Annie’s Buttery Rich) mix with a little olive oil. Bake and Voila! Make a lot because you kids will be popping and chewing as many as they can. Recipe

Recipe creator, Healthier Recipe Mom, Shonda, said, “The chicken came out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The subtle buttery taste of the crackers added a nice flavor. My daughter LOVED them! We will definitely make these again!” Try them.

heart

Since you heart is pumping hard to push blood through about 60,000 miles of blood vessels  a day, wouldn’t it be a good idea to feed this muscle its needed fuel? Dr. Heather shares what she feeds her family of four so all stay healthy and function at their best.  Good fats (Omega-3s) were tops on her list.  Putting flax seed oil with heart healthy blueberries and other fruit into smoothies is a daily event for breakfast or snacks.  Avocados in salads or Guacamole are frequently consumed by her family.  Grass-fed beef and eggs are commonly found on their plates for dinner and other meals.  One of her young daughter’s was making scrambled eggs with spinach and cheese for her breakfast while we were on the air.  It’s not that hard!

To hear all of Dr. Manley’s Heart Health interview, please go to the www.BetterFoodChoicesRadio.com archived shows, or, www.iTunes.com, Podcast, Better Food Choices and click on the Feb. 3rd, 2012 show. PLEASE, avoid having any heart disease statistics in your family.  Listen to Dr. Heather Manley.

Spelt Spaghetti is as good as it gets! The grain spelt has been grown for thousands of years in Europe. In this country, Spelt used to be grown by the hundreds of thousands of acres. Increased mechanization made it an impractical crop, and it was replaced by wheat. Now Spelt is making a big comeback in the United States. It has a rich, nutty flavor and a smoother texture, containing a “balanced” protein made up of all 8 essential amino acids your body requires. Plus, it is more easily digested than wheat. All other pasta will taste boring after you enjoy some made with spelt. The Kid Kritics LOVED it.  So will yours.  Put this on your grocery list!

When you find your kids or yourself reaching for something sweet, reach for nuts, seeds, slices of cheese or turkey instead.  You will find you are not as interested in satisfying your sugar craving.  This will help keep your family and you from eating the average of 35 teaspoons of added sugar a day!  So many grams of sugar are hidden in processed foods as high fructose corn syrup, glucose, dextrose, fructose, maltodextrin, and more. Reading labels is the smart way to avoid buying any of these foods.  And, always having some protein finger food around as an alternative will save the day!
