This delicious recipe makes a fresh, crunchy, family-pleasing treat that kids can help prepare. While this snack does contain some sugar (in the form of brown-rice and maple syrups), the nuts help slow sugar absorption and offer a dose of healthy nutrition. The popcorn provides a healthy dose of fiber. The herbs add wholesome flavor both kids and adults will enjoy.
This French-style mayonnaise of garlic, olive oil and lemon is wonderful as a condiment with steamed or grilled vegetables, fish and soups, or as a spread when making sandwiches. Lasts for one week in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.
Spring rolls are the perfect vehicle for your favorite veggies. For fun, fill separate bowls with shrimp, veggies and herbs — and let people customize and roll their own dinner (great for picky eaters!).
Enjoy as an appetizer with raw veggies or whole-grain chips. Choose wild-caught or sustainably farmed U.S. shrimp over imported shrimp, which may be contaminated with antibiotic and pesticide residues. For a vegetarian version, substitute canned black beans for the shrimp.
