Vinny just passed a nutrition quiz with flying colors. Want to try it yourself? Click here. Warning – it’s not easy. The language at times needs careful attention. But the information is right on and the quiz is a good reinforcement of what you know. And if you don’t know, it will set you straight.
The website that hosts the quiz, The Food Hospital (Using Food as Medicine), is a British TV program with lots of well researched information.
Under Foods you can find the good, the bad, and the ugly about your favorite things to eat. Vinny’s favorite foods are avocado (for sharp minds), low-fat dairy (for balanced nutrition), and olive oil (of course, for daily doses of healthy fats). What are your favorite foods? Click on them to see what their best points are and what you need to watch out for. Click around this fascinating food site and you’ll find plenty to chew over.
If you didn’t do as well as you’d hoped on the food quiz, get smarter… with avocados! Check out some great avocado recipes from Muy Bueno Cookbook, where I found the lovely photo of avocados I’ve posted above. Thanks so much!
If you’d like to start a food dialogue with the kids in your family, check out Vinny’s book for lots of fun that leads to tips on healthy eating.
