Product Talk: Glory Greens

Glory GreensEvery Sunday after church, my family gets together for dinner.  We fix a variety of food, but my all time favorite meal is baked chicken, greens, sweet potatoes and cornbread.  Normally my mom fixes the meals, but I had the desire to cook a couple of weeks ago, so what did I cook?  My favorite meal…   When my mom cooks greens, she gets the fresh one from the produce department, where she has to clean them, cut them and cook them until they are tender.  I wasn’t about to do all of that, so I made a trip to my nearby Brookshire’s, where I found Glory Greens.  I poured the cans of preseasoned greens into a pot and let them cook for about 15-30 minutes and Viola, they were done and they were umm-umm good!!  We invited some friends over, and my Greens were a hit.  They could not believe how delicious they were…  I chuckled and said Glory greens don’t need any help…

Family Matters: Summertime and your kids

Summer time is here, the kids are at home all day and they seem to be always hungry!

I want to help my kids make healthier choices when snacking.

Here are a few things that I do at home that seem to work for my kiddos:

  1. Keep a basket of fruit on the kitchen cabinet at all times filled with apples, oranges, bananas and fruit leathers
  2. Keep individual bottled water in the fridge
  3. Place yogurt tubes in the freezer for a healthier frozen treat
  4. Frozen grapes also make a cool summer snack

You’ll be surprised at your kids’ choices! When we are heading out the door for the day, I tell my kids to grab a snack and something to drink…they usually come to the car with a piece of fruit and bottled water. Yeah, I’m a pretty good Mom!

Family Matters: Food, Family and Fun!

It is almost time to celebrate the Fourth of July!  With the holiday falling on Sunday this year, most Americans will enjoy a relaxing 3-day weekend away from work.  And that’s only more time to bring family and friends together for food and fun.

My wife, Karen, takes the responsibility of making our Fourth of July meal extra special.  I like her idea:  She always checks with each family member before she goes shopping to make sure we serve up their favorite summertime food on the Fourth.  No matter how unusual, she will serve it, which is exciting for our grandkids.

But so far, we haven’t been too surprised by the menu.  The grandkids expect hot dogs.  For Karen, it is a thick juicy hamburger hot off the grill.  My daughter insists on potato salad – the kind that comes from Brookshire’s deli in the plastic tub.  (We’ve long since given up on making potato salad from scratch because the product from the deli is so delicious.)   My son wants grilled onions for his hamburger.  And my favorite taste is the blending of baked beans and Lay’s potato chips – the combination is heavenly.

Holidays are so much fun for the family.  Make your family’s Fourth of July special this year by serving everyone’s favorite foods.

Shop the Sale: Sunnybrook Farms Fresh Cut Fruit

Sometimes you have very good intentions on eating healthy, you buy a bunch of different fruits and you are so excited to eat it.  You take the fruit home and then what happens to it? The fruit ends up just sitting there and you never eat it.  A solution to this is to buy fresh cut fruit. At Brookshire’s, Sunnybrook Farms’ fresh cut fruit is on sale.

When fruit is already cut and placed in a container for you, it is so much easier to just grab the container and eat the fruit. Fresh cut fruit is perfect to take to work with you for a healthy lunch or snack. With fresh cut fruit there is no messy cutting or peeling involved; just grab and eat. Another neat thing about Sunnybrook Farms’ fresh cut fruit is that you can get a variety of fruit; you can get grapes, honeydew melon and cantaloupe all in one bowl!

Dine In: Vegetable Topped Sandwich

When summer comes around, you always just want a light lunch. You want a lunch that is nothing heavy, just something light and refreshing. Sandwiches are always great in the summer but bread, meat, and cheese can get really old really quick. Making different kinds of sandwiches will help with this, like adding different vegetables to your sandwich. You can grill or sauté vegetables to add to your sandwich.

1 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 cup onion, sliced

Healthy Living: Fresh Produce

When on a gluten-free diet, you know that the simpler the food the better. When you pick up a process food, there are so many different ingredients it makes your head spin, you start to wonder does this mean it has gluten in it, then you start feeling defeated, and think I just can not do this gluten-free diet. Well guess what? I have a quick fix for you. Go to the fresh produce section! 

Look around do you see any label; anything that has stabilizers or modified starches? No! Fresh produce is where you should start spending most of your time in the store. In fresh produce you will not have to look at each product to see the ingredients. When you discover that, in fact, you do have a lot to choose from on a gluten-free diet then you will feel like you can succeed. 

Healthy Living: Eating Healthier!

“I’m going to start eating healthier…”  How many times have you said that?  I know I have many, many times and usually that means a day or two of cutting back on soft drinks and eating “healthy” snack bars between meals.  Today as I was eating my favorite “health” bar I decided to look at the nutritional information.  As I read the numbers I stopped eating.  While more nutritious than the well known candy bars on the market, I don’t know that I would classify most “health” bars on the market as healthy.  There is a healthier choice…..FRESH FRUIT! 

This is a great time of the year to make a commitment to eating more fruit.  This season’s domestic fruit harvest has begun to hit our stores including many choices from local growers – peaches, nectarines, cantaloupes, watermelons and my personal favorite – blueberries.  We are fortunate that some of the best blueberries available are grown right here in our area.  Blueberries are sweet, refreshing and VERY nutritious.  One cup of blueberries has only 84 calories and is packed with age fighting antioxidants.  So the next time you have a craving for a snack, reach for a handful of blueberries!  Your body will thank you!

Healthy Living: Parmesan Zucchini

Instead of using bread crumbs to bread your favorite vegetable or meat, have you tried crushed cereal? If you pick a high fiber cereal to use instead of bread crumbs it enhances the nutritional value of the meal. You can either place the cereal in a food processor to make into crumbs or do it the old fashion way – crush them yourself.

Take a zip top bag and place the cereal of choice in that bag. You can either crush it with your hands or roll a rolling pin over the cereal of few times and voila you have cereal crumbs.

Parmesan Zucchini
Serves: 6
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

2 zucchini
1 egg
1/2 cup crushed cereal
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp oregano

Preheat oven to 350°F. Slice the zucchini into 1/2-inch round pieces. In a small bowl, add egg. In a shallow bowl, combine crush cereal, cheese and oregano.  Dip zucchini in egg bowl and then cereal crumb bowl. Place cereal covered zucchini on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
