It's back to school time and there is a lot that needs to be done.   Kids need to prepare, moms and dads need organize and somewhere in there we need to find the time to feed the family right.

Start the day off with this great protein smoothie that both the parents and the kids will like.

I will be hosting a free "Brain Food" workshop on Thursday, September 27th.
