It's Feel Good Friday! Who's hungry besides me?
Before you go out and order a burger with pink slime or a sandwich with bread made from yoga mats, let me introduce you to ChopChop Magazine.
The quarterly magazine (published in both English and Spanish) promotes the mission of ChopChop Kids, "an innovative non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and teach kids to cook real food with their families." As they continue to explain on their website, "we believe that cooking and eating together as a family is a vital step in resolving the obesity and hunger epidemics."
The magazine "is filled with nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse, and inexpensive recipes. It also has fun food facts, games and puzzles, and interviews with healthy heroes ranging from kid chefs to professional athletes to the White House Chefs."
Great if you have kids or the attention span of a kid when trying to follow a recipe! I'm no French chef but am convinced even I can make these dishes.
While ChopChop is distributed at public schools, children's hospitals and health centers, you can also subscribe or read their content online.
