25+ Back to School Recipes Kids Can Help Make! | alidaskitchen.com #recipes #HorizonB2S

Today we are officially back to school.  It is Adam’s first day of Pre-K, and we are all so excited!  Greta and I will miss him during the day, but look forward to seeing his smile every afternoon.  I know he will be excited to come home (and for Greta’s nap) so that we can make a snack together, do some dinner prep, maybe even make some muffins for easy breakfasts throughout the week.  Adam loves to help in the kitchen.  I always find the more involved kids are in the kitchen, the more likely they are to try what they make.

As we head back into the school year, I wanted to compile a list of recipes from my favorite food bloggers that are not only kid-approved delicious, but are also kid-friendly to make!  From no-bake bites to frozen fruit bars to easy snacks, fast dinners and more, this a great list to have handy.  By presenting healthy options, you empower kids to make healthy choices while having fun too!  …

30 Healthy Recipes using Greek Yogurt #AetnaMyHealthy

A collection of 30 Healthy Recipes using Greek Yogurt, plus healthy eating tips.  

Recently, AETNA posed the question to me – ‘What’s your Healthy?’   While I share recipes ranging from healthy to splurges, I am actually a health and fitness fanatic.  I am often running, at the gym, or chasing my kids.  When not exercising (or baking up delicious desserts to share with you!), I am trying to figure out ways to make our every day foods healthier.

One of my favorite healthy food secret ingredients is Greek yogurt.  It is high in protein and calcium, is delicious plain and also works great in lightening up recipes without sacrificing taste. From dips and pastas to smoothies and desserts, there are so many way recipes can be made healthier using Greek yogurt.  Here I gathered some delicious recipes using Greek yogurt from my favorite food blogger friends….

Over 75 Avocado Recipes - Alida's Kitchen

In the months leading up to the holidays, there have been dessert recipes popping up all over the place.  While I’m never one to complain about a good dessert, after a while I start craving healthy recipes.  Lately it has been all about the avocado.  My kids love avocados plain, and I’ve been whipping them into smoothies, as pasta sauce, in place of mayo in sandwiches and salads, even using avocados in place of butter in baking!  Since over 75% of fat in an avocado is unsaturated, it’s a great substitute for foods that are  high in saturated fat.

While I frequently make delicious avocado recipes at home, it seems very few have made it on the blog.  That will change soon, as I get these recipes ready to share with you.  In the meantime I gathered over 75 wonderful avocado recipes from my favorite blogger friends.  Enjoy!  …
