First and foremost, I wholeheartedly believe healthy eating starts with raw ingredients! I have three teenagers - my own two children, and a foreign exchange student from Japan who is living with us for this school year. The heart of our home is the dinner table...I involve the kids in planning weekly meals, grocery shopping, and cooking. The kids all love to cook and are filling their own personal recipe books with tried and true favorites and building their own culinary repertoire! We have traveled the world with the military, and love trying all types of new foods.
