Tip of the Day April 28

For one of our last reviews I found a great book called The Healthy Body Cookbook. It is full of interesting facts about the body and great ways to incorporate exercise with healthy eating. I found a recipe similar to something Audrey already enjoys and was pretty certain she would eat it.
Wake-Me-Up Sunshine Salad

  • 1 orange
  • 1 8-ounce can of pineapple rings, in juice
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 2 maraschino cherries
Using a knife, make a small X on the top of the orange. Peel and section the orange. Open the can of pineapple rings. Drain the liquid. Place two washed lettuce leaves on each plate. Place two pineapple rings on top of the lettuce on each plate. Place 1 scoop of cottage cheese on top of the pineapple rings. Place the orange segments around the cottage cheese on each plate to make the sun's rays. Decorate the top of each salad with a cherry.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Place lettuce on plate
  2. Place pineapple on plate
  3. Place cottage cheese on plate
  4. Place oranges on plate
  5. Place cherries on plate
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Wash lettuce
We love this book and the recipe. Audrey made us lunch and then we both ate it all. I even consumed the lettuce because I thought it would be good to get a little extra veggie. We did not have a fresh orange or maraschino cherries so I subbed mandarin oranges and fruit cocktail; all packed in juice. Audrey did not feel like making pretty designs so she just put the fruit on the plate. Rarely does she ever eat anything for lunch other than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so I was pleased.
