nutrition news

It’s that time of the week again!  Every Saturday, I share with you the latest in nutrition news, yummy recipes, and healthy eating blog posts. I even share a few giveaways for healthy foods and kitchen gadgets.

Nutrition News

  • Real Food Forager shared a thought-provoking article  - Is Autism an Autoimmune Disorder?  With my oldest child having been diagnosed with ADD (on the autism spectrum), this is a topic near and dear to my heart.
  • Small Footprint Family shared The Cost of Nursing Your Sweet Tooth.  It has a great infographic at the end that puts it all into perspective.

Healthy Recipes Around the Blogosphere

  • Eat at Home shared a great recipe for Grab and Go Snack Bars (either mixed berry or peanut butter).  I am going to have to make some for the kids for after school snacks.
  • I have not made homemade pasta since I lost my sourdough starter.  But this Herbed Kamut Pasta recipe from Baking Whole Grains makes me want to get out my KitchenAid pasta roller.
  • Do you have zucchini in abundance? GNOWFGLINS shared how to make dehydrated zucchini chips.  I think this would be a great alternative to unhealthy potato chips in kids lunches.
  • Do you love quinoa?  The Coconut Mama shared a recipe for a pizza crust made from quinoa.  I am intrigued.
