Healthy Kids Snack, Fresh Juice and Fun In The Snow

on February 17, 2015


Another snowy morning here in NY today, but the sun did come out for the rest of the day 🙂  I came home from work only to find Luna did not take a nap – ugh, she will become an emotional roller coaster around dinner time.  I had to tire her out!  We had lunch, me a huge salad with fresh turkey breast, carrots, avocado, tomatoes, apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil – Luna had lentils, carrots from my salad, broccoli and quinoa pasta.

I normally make fresh orange juice for Luna every morning, but I didn’t have enough time today before work.  It doesn’t matter when she gets her fresh juice, as long as she gets it ;).  After lunch, I made Luna a fresh juice from these organic beauties:

1/2 pink grapefruit

2 oranges

1 lemon slice squeezed

1/4 cup water to dilute it a bit

Easy, cost-effective and packed with vitamins and minerals!

Time to tire Mz Luna out. We went to the playground across our street where there’s a huge field to run, run, run and play, play, play!  It actually felt warm out, even though it was ONLY 25F degrees! I’m a summer person and definitely tired of the snow and freezing temps here, but Luna made me laugh the other morning.  I told her it was super cold out and she said, “Whaaaat?! I was looking forward to a day at the pool and beach and eating watermelon and coconuts!”  She was completely serious too!  I guess she likes summer better too! 

Snack today after using up a lot of energy was one banana and one apple sliced as per Luna’s request, with Manuka honey on them.  Loaded with so many vitamins, fiber, antioxidants and Manuka with anti-viral & anti-bacterial properties.  Yep, this is what she asked for.  My kid all the way!  

Last but not least, my mid-afternoon snack today was an organic raw juice I picked up at Mrs. Greens.  

1 beet

2 apples

1 lemon

2 inch piece of fresh ginger

One of my favorite juices that you can make on your own with a juicer or high-speed blender like Vitamix.

Happy and healthy!
