Clean Fifteen and The Dirty Dozen

As a child growing up in Australia, my parents always reminded me to eat my fruits and vegetables, however I never really understood how it important it was until I grew up and began to understand the nutritional value of food. Now that I have my own little bundle-of-joy, together with my husband, we both encourage our Son to have a positive relationship with fruits and vegetables, just like my parents did with me.

Home Baked Miso Glazed Tofu Cubes

One of Miles Storm’s favorite snacks is our Home Baked Miso Glazed Tofu Cubes. They are very easy and fast to make. We like to make this for him as a snack once a week, as our pediatrician told us that it is not good to give little boys too much tofu. Her reasoning was that it has high level of estrogen and is only recommended in moderation.

Tomato & Basil Hummus

MIles Storm helping me make, and then tucking in to the hummus!

This week I went to the Health Food Store with Miles Storm to buy some organic dry chickpeas. I had a great urge to make him hummus as he eats so much of it. Lately, I have been lazy and buying hummus at the supermarket for him. I feel bad about this as I know the Sabra Brand we always buy is made with GMO and non-organic ingredients.

Make your very own Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce

Have you looked at the ingredients in a jar of commercial processed tomato sauce lately?

All food that is processed has preservatives added to it to keep a long shelf life, and let’s not forget that most jarred tomato sauces are also heavy-handed with unnecessary amounts of sugar, salt and oils. Call me crazy but I just do not see the point of adding sugar to a tomato sauce? One also has to consider whether the ingredients used are sprayed with chemicals/pesticides and are in fact Genetically Modified Organisms -GMO’s.
