Kids Can Cook Energy Bar Episode

Last week I posted a web cooking show done by two fabulous hosts Nia (age 6) and Haile (age 9).  They have a new blog called Kids Can Cook and they’ve been starting a buzz. As soon as I saw this site I was in love.  First of all the site’s “stars” are two of the cutest little girls around. The duo star in their own webshow that teaches kids how to cook!  These girls don’t just cook anything, their goal is to teach other kids how to make healthy recipes. Haile was interviewed by my son and talked about how parents don’t have to drive thru McDonald’, but how they can just pack a healthy lunch or snack for their kids!  I was floored, and totally impressed by this nine year old!  What kid doesn’t like to go to McDonald’s.  Amazing! They are on the right track from the start.  I hope  Haile and Nia can be an inspiration to all of our kids (and us parents)!  FYI the girls were just featured on Tucson Morning Blend (their local morning show).  On today’s Kids Can Cook episode (which is not made by our site, this is a www.Kids-Cancook.org production) my children, Mya (age 9) and Victoria (age 5) join Haile and Nia as their guests on the Kids Can Cook wevbshow!  Let your kids watch to find out how to make these easy energy bars.

Kids Can Cook

Earlier this month I stumbled across a fabulous new blog called Kids Can Cook!  As soon as I saw this site I was in love.  First of all the site’s “stars” are two of the cutest little girls around.  Haile (age 9) and Nia (age 6) star in their own webshow that teaches kids how to cook!  These girls don’t just cook anything, their goal is to show kids healthy recipes.  Haile and Nia were just featured on Tucson Morning Blend (their local morning show).

After connecting with Charmaine, the mother of Nia and Haile, she asked if my children, Mya and Victoria, would be interested in doing a webshow with them!  Of course I said YES!!  My 5 year old cooks with me all of the time and loves it!  I believe that teaching kids to cook is not only an important survival skill, but also it’s important in establishing healthy habits in them.

Fit Meals Monday

It was a good week at the Davis house, though it started off a little shaky.  My husband said he would take over the kitchen for a week preparing both raw and vegan meals.  When my husband offers to cook for a week, I’m always ALL IN!  Well…Day 1 he had great intentions, but by 5pm he still had not gone shopping for his ingredients.  At 6pm our kids were starving and my little one was whining on my shoulder saying “Mommy why didn’t YOU cook dinner?!?!?”  By 6:45pm I was asking myself the same thing!  But, he finally got things together and dinner was delicious!  We had a Veggie Lasagna (made from all veggies, no pasta).  The “noodles” were made from zucchini and squash.  The sauce was raw made in the food processor and was delicious!!

This week started off with a  fabulous luau party for my daughters 5th birthday!  I can’t believe how fast time flies!  We had a great time, great food, and I had a blast making her hula girl cake!  We played coconut pineapple bowling, did the limbo, learned how to hula dance, played pin the tail on the monkey, and busted open a hula girl pinata.  My little hula girl said this was her best birthday ever!  (She says that every year, but she means it every year too. lol!)  Sweet Victoria is a party planner at heart, so I bet you starting Monday she’ll spend the next 364 days planning her next party!

This week will be one of the most exciting ever for our family.  Not only are we celebrating Victoria’s 5th Birthday, her actual birthday is Monday so we’ll have a special dessert to celebrate again as a family, but, this coming Sunday my husband will be competing in his first Ironman!!  We’ll drive to Arizona on Friday so our meal plan for the week will be short and sweet as I don’t know where and what we’ll be eating in Tempe.  We will possibly have access to a kitchen so we are hoping to find a Whole Foods or Trader Joes and cook our own food while there so he can stay on track eating healthy.  One change for my hubby will be that he has to add extra salt to his food a few days before the race so that his body can retain water during the Ironman.   He’ll do this so he won’t get dehydrated during the 2.5 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26 mile run!  I still can’t believe he’s doing this!  I’m so proud of him, and excited that he decided to take this on at 40!

Here’s my “Ironman” menu for the week.

My husband competing in the 100 fly

Monday Veggie Lasagna this week with pasta

Taco Tuesday- Taco Salad (lean ground beef, black beans, fresh corn, avocado, fresh salsa)

Wednesday-  Chili (white and black beans, fresh corn, garlic, onion, leftover taco meat or  a piece of the chicken that I’ll use for Thursday)

Thursday- Grilled Chicken, broccoli, mixed green salad with veggies

FRIDAY-SUNDAY- Driving to Arizona for the Ironman, hopefully eating at Whole Foods or making our own whole food…Sunday??? I have no idea when he’ll finish the race so the kids and I will be on our own.  We will meet up with our new friends from Kids Can Cook and hopefully find a healthy restaurant that gets the Kids Can Cook seal of approval!  I’ll let you know next week. (FYI my meal plan may change…if it does I’ll let you know.  I couldn’t find my hubby’s triathalon book that tells what he should eat this week.  So, this is my plan, subject to change once I find the book!
