  • Healthy Banana Bread Smoothie (with a dust of chocolate)

    03.04.2014 / Blog Posts Recipes

    By Kimberly Young, MA; Founder of Healthy Little Cooks and author of the 5-Minute Lunchbox

    After being a part of the Redskins Kids Club Combine on Saturday, I felt moved to create a smoothie that both kids and parents would love, but was also super-healthy for our bodies.

    Unlike most traditional banana breads, this smoothie won’t weigh you down. It’s packed full of electrolytes and potassium. It also feeds the body magnesium, vitamin E & C. These nutrients make it an excellent post-workout snack or mini-meal. 

    Ingredients
    1 banana, very ripe
    1 cup coconut water
    1 cup ice

    During pregnancy alterations in your body chemistry and the mechanical compression of the uterus on a major vein in your body can lead to changes throughout the body. These changes can result in several conditions that can cause problems in your hands and wrist.

    I love anything with oats. So one day I set out to make a healthy granola bar. But, my impatience got the best of me and I tried to cut and eat them before they cooled.  Although it wasn’t one of my proudest culinary moments, it turned into something fantastic –an addictive chunky granola.  Although this recipe calls for gluten-free oats, you can replace them for the regular variety!

    INGREDIENTS
    4 1/2 cups gluten-free whole oats
    1/2 unsweetened shaved coconut
    1/3 cup ... Read More

    If your house is like ours, seafood, specifically shrimp and crab, are family favorites. If my husband (whose a DC native) had it his way, he’d eat seafood every day of his life.  So, one day I went on a journey to find a way to “extend” our last pound of shrimp and transform it into a yummy dish that everyone could enjoy. 

    I can’t say we had any leftovers, but combining this shrimp hash with wild rice and edamame transformed this ... Read More

    Sure, those high heels look good. But if you wear them all the time you run the risk of significant foot pain and other problems. Conditions range from bunions, corns and calluses to misshapen hammertoes or excruciating pain in the ball of the foot.

    Don’t despair! There are some simple precautions you can take to protect your feet and keep on sporting your stylish spikes:

    1. Make sure you’re wearing the right size shoe. Feet change over time, especially after pregnancy.

    2. The thicker the heel, the better. Give those stilettos a rest and opt for ... Read More
