Apples are Red, Blueberries are Blue, Sugar is Sweet, and So are These Scones!

Posted Jan 14 2011 9:03pm

Instead of working at the animal hospital today, I rescheduled my nutrition lessons from the day we had the snowstorm (my typical day off).  I gathered my stuff together while eating breakfast.


Cute coloring pages right? Perfect for preschoolers.  I spent the morning at one pre-school and the afternoon at another (hitting the gym quick in between!).  I even brought fruit (apples, strawberries, grapes) and yogurt for the kids to snack on.  Unfortunately I forgot all about food for myself! Good thing there was a little leftovers for me :)

Everyone’s got to know the whole “Eat the Rainbow” lesson, right? Well that’s what I taught today. 8 kids in the first class, 13 in the second.  That’s 21 little people that will hopefully remember what I told them and try all sorts of new fruits and veggies!  I even got a book as a present for helping out.


Cutest little book! When I got home I finally made lunch even though it was closer to dinner time.

I don’t know about you but I just can’t get enough of bell peppers (except the green ones – yuck!).

Dinner was a toughie though. My grandparents invited my parents and I out to the diner down the road.  There was very few things on the menu to choose from that were healthy.  With my mom making some lifestyle changes, I try to help her and encourage her especially when going out to eat. We both ended up getting the same thing – grilled chicken on a salad, dressing on the side. We also got a side of sweet potato fries to share between the two of us and my grandma.


It ended up being a delicious meal. I wasn’t expecting such a yummy salad from a diner but the chicken was juicy and the greens were fresh!

When I got home I was in such a mood to bake. And then I saw this:


Blueberry-Pecan Scones. I used whole wheat flour though but that was the only substitution I made. Breakfast is all set for tomorrow!
