Fooditude -Veggie Soup
Fooditude is my latest addition to I Love My Temple blog. Fooditude is Food + Attitude. I thought this would be a great way to introduce nutrition and talk about healthy yet tasty foods. I invite you to contribute your tasty healthy recipes via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: Fooditude). You can send pics along with your contributions. Tell me why your food has a great healthy attitude and I will post them on my blog. My favorites will be shared with my Yoga for Weight Loss group.
Here is a wonderful soup recipe from Healthy Kids, Smart Kids: The Principal-Created, Parent-Tested, Kid-Approved Nutrition Plan for Sound Bodies & Strong Minds by Yvonne Sanders-Butler, Ed. D. with Barbara Alpert
