Breakfast Time

This morning my 5 year old chef in training woke up with a breakfast request. " Mommy, can you make yellow grits this morning please." He never ask for cereal, but that's my fault only because I want him to have a well rounded palate with food and breakfast is much more then cereal and milk. So of course, I didn't say no. Once he received his bowl of golden yellow grits, he "buttered" me up with his usual - "Mommy, your the bestest cook ever!" Gotta love kids.

A yummy bowl of organic yellow grits (also called polenta or corn meal). I just added some organic butter, a litle sea salt, some borsari seasoning, and a few slivered slices of a cave aged gruyere cheese.

*You could also serve this for lunch or dinner with a spring salad dressed with an aged balsamic vinager*

Healthy Chips, Finally!

I was at my local Wholefoods Market on one of my zen escapes. On this particular day there was a vendor with a really interesting product. Chips, but not just any chip - Raw Chips!! Now I'm not a raw foodist, but I do like some of the products and recipes that are offered. Brad's Raw Chips was the vendor and Brad himself was there to offer delicious samples and informative information to all those who were opening and will to try and listen. These are the first raw chips (uncooked) to be offered in Pennsylvania and possibly the northwest region. I was gamed to try the beautiful array of colorful chips that awaited my taste buds. The flavors that he had out to sample were Indian, Kale, Sweet Potato, Red Bell Pepper, Beet, a non-dairy Cheddar, Sun Dried Tomato. My favorites were the kale, red bell pepper, and sun dried tomato. These yummy chips are ground up veggies with added seeds which is great because it still upholds good nutritional value. Making it like a meal in a bag. Now with me being a mom of a 5 year old and growing infant this is the snack I can confidently give my kids. This only reassures me as mom knowing I have good options for my children to have a healthy eating habits. What chip out there can you buy that has Vitamins A,B's, C, Calcium plus more? I only know one - Brad's Raw Chips. Thank you Brad for offering a snack that will assist in the betterment of the health of my family especially my growing children.

Get your chips at and tell them Umm Food sent you.
