    I agree that we (as parents) have a duty to make sure we train our little ones to desire healthy foods. So, when they grow up, they will be on the right track. Education on nutrition is important.

    That is the main reason I purchased a high powered blender (BlendTec). It is alot easier for my children to get their greens and veggies amongst an assortment of great fruits in a smoothie. It’s lots of fun to let my young children be in charge of making “BlendTec Soup” for supper with fresh vegetables and other natural ingredients all blended up! It’s simple for busy parents and the kids feel they are helping out (which is important in this way of living to eat healthy). Many times it’s the children who decide what goes in our blender for smoothies or any healthy desert, pancakes or muffins…the uses are endless.

    I just keep good whole foods around and let them enjoy the blending and eating. It’s great for summer popcicles instead of the sugary alternative.

    Rip, your cookbook has been great in helping me cook better and have more ideas around me. We all have our favorites. My husband especially has enjoyed reading the testimonies posted. Please keep them coming!

    Thanks for all you do and stand for!!!
