Healthy eating can taste great! Here are three super simple quick and easy healthIER ideas for you to try!
Ingredients:1 cup lemonade*
2 cups frozen cherries
Blend the cherries and lemonade until icy and smooth. Divide among glasses and serve immediately!

* To make the lemonade: in a pitcher mix together 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 cup lemon juice, and fill with water! Adjust the quantities of sugar and lemon juice depending on the size pitcher you're using. Most importantly.... keep the ratio of sugar to lemon juice a 1:2 ratio to keep the sugar content in-check.

Try new products
I love trying new products, some are hits and some are misses! Take the challenge and find new foods and drink options while you are grocery shopping and try them... be adventurous.
Here's a new product that we recently discovered: when my husband and our boys were grocery shopping recently, they discovered Ithaca Hummus. It tastes amazing, it has a simple ingredient list, no preservatives, and it's made in Ithaca, NY which is only about and hour from where we live!
