In part one of “cooking with kids” we showed you how to make healthy snacks with your kids at home. In this video we take our apple doughnuts and cucumber cupcakes to the streets to see if they past the taste test. Watch as other kids (and grown ups) in NYC give these goodies goodies a try and talk about why eating healthy is important to them.
How many of you would agree that losing weight is hard to do? Sure, calories in have to be less than energy out, but sometimes there is more to that equation.
It’s easy to make mistakes that unknowingly hinder us from achieving our weight loss goals. In our latest video, we talking about 5 common pitfalls many folks make and what you can do about it. Go ahead and head over to our youtube channel and give this video a pla-play.
Are you looking for an alternative to those pre-packaged veggie burgers that are loaded with preservatives, sodium, and other icky stuff you probably don’t need?
We thought so.
That’s why we created this delicious DIY black bean veggie burger recipe that is sure to rock your socks. All ingredients are fresh and whole, and everything can be done in 5 easy steps. Watch the video below to get started.
1 cup of black beans
1/4 cup of finely chopped onions
1/4 cup of finely chopped red bell peppers
1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of ketchup
2 tablespoons of whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
Pulse a few times to mix well. (If the your machine is not blending well, add a few spoons of water and continuously stir the mixture with a spoon while the blender/food processor is off to get a consistent texture. Then continue pulsing)
After you get a consistent texture, scoop out the mixture into a bowl.
Form 4-5 patties with your hands. Sprinkle each side with some extra breadcrumbs for sturdiness. If you plan on eating them up right away, lightly oil a baking sheet and
bake for 15 minutes on each side at 450F or until crisp and brown.
If you plan on storing them, you can either wrap each patty individually in plastic, or you can line each one with wax paper, and then stack them in a container. Then they can go right into the freezer! Whenever you’re ready, just de-frost and bake them.
We hope you’ve been staying warm! With the weather getting colder and all, it’s really important to keep those beautiful strands moisturized and lubricated to avoid hair snowflakes (aka dandruff).
