Going Nuts Over Nuts!
I go nuts every time I hear, “No Nuts!”  No nuts because they are fattening.  No nuts because of peanut allergies.  These are just a couple of misnomers about this rich source of protein, good fats and fiber. It’s time to clear up the confusion about nuts. There are nut allergies that are real and need to be respected.  However, not all nuts are the same.  Thus, an allergy to one may not exclude one from eating others, or will it?  Two of the best people to help you sort out the facts are joining us in our Family Food Experts Kitchen.  One is our guest, Amie Valpone, Editor-in-Chief for, Culinary Nutritionist, Personal Chef, media personality, and spokesperson for the California Almond Board. She knows whole lot about nuts.  This week’s Family Food Experts co-host, Dr. Heather Manley, Naturopathic Physician and author of the Human Body Detectives educational books for children, knows the nutritional benefits of nuts, and how to pay attention to nut allergies.  Together, they will clear the air on this subject.
And, you can expect to hear some great recipe ideas your family will love including easy ones you can fix in a jiff, plus ones you can eat on the run!

Junk Food Spoils Dreams. Choose Fit Foods! RECIPES
Someone in your home has a dream, a dream to be a teacher, dancer, singer, artist, princess, a super hero, nurse, doctor, lawyer, Olympian and pro athlete…  the  list of “wanna-be” when I grow up is long. Just the other day a young boy told me he wants to be a paleontologist.  The number on pick among girls is veterinarian.  Have you ever heard of a VOTL Engineer?  I hadn’t until another boy told me that was his dream; he wants to invent flying cars!  All kids dream, though it may change from day to day.  All their dreams deserve to be fed with fit food, healthy food for the young growing bodies.  Unfortunately a steady diet of junk food spoils dreams thanks to the illnesses and injuries they feed.  Together with Co-host Carolina Jantac, RDN, LD (Kid Kritics Approved food program) we’ll spell out the anti-body building facts of junk food to confirm this truth. And, we’ll give you a delicious list of the best foods designed to Fuel Your Children’s Dreams.  Recipes, too!
