Don’t Fear The Fat!

When many of us hear the words “high in fat” we automatically tell ourselves to steer clear. Especially when the high in fat item is a green fruit. Why would we waste fat and calories on something green when we could save it for brownies? Avocados are a different story.

 Although 77 percent of calories in an avocado come from fat, making it one of the fattiest plant foods, avocados are considered a superfood and extremely healthy. The fat in  avocados comes from monounsaturated fat which is good fat that is naturally sodium and cholesterol free. This fat is very similar to the fat in olive oil. The fat in avocados is heart healthy fat and a very important component to our diet. A serving of avocado contains 7 grams of fiber and more potassium than a banana. Avocados also contain nutrients such as oleic acid, lutein, folate, vitamin E and glutathione.

 STOP fearing the fat and embrace avocado as a staple in your diet. Avocados are a great substation to fat laden dips, spreads, and recipes that are loaded with saturated fat. Try skipping the mayo on your sandwich and spread a layer of avocado instead. It will give it a flavor boost that your kids will love! Next game day, switch out your go to dip, packed with sodium and saturated fat, for a creamy and delicious bowl of guacamole.

When choosing an avocado you must know when you intend to eat it. Ripe avocados that yield to gentle pressure should be eaten within a day or two. Unripe, firm or green fruit can take four to five days to ripen at room temperature.

Kid friendly tip: Avocados soft texture makes them great for babies and kids. Try spreading avocado on toast or on top of eggs for a fun twist kids will love.

Build a Better Easter Basket

For a long time, Easter baskets have played an important role in the celebration of Easter. Spring has always been a time for rebirth and renewal and Easter baskets have become a way to celebrate that. Legend says the fertility goddess Eostre carried a basket of eggs. Thus, Easter baskets signify new life, rebirth and renewal. No matter its origins, Easter baskets have come to mean excitement and happiness on Easter morning. Building an Easter basket your child is sure to love shouldn’t be a daunting task. Here’s five things that will make a perfect Easter basket.

Something Sweet: Every Easter basket needs treats. Marshmallow chicks, chocolate eggs, and bunny shaped candies help us celebrate Easter. Chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, sweet, or tart. Whatever treat you and your family love, we’ve got it.

Something Soft: Think cuddly stuffed animal or soft and warm blanket.

Something Fun: Try a board game, coloring books, sports equipment or sand pails. Your kid will love something that lasts long after Easter is over.

Something Useful: Treats and toys are fun, but try adding something your children actually need. Throw in a toothbrush, socks, school supplies, or something else your kid needs.

Something Healthy: Treats are fun, but odds are they are going to get plenty of sweets on Easter, try to balance out the sweets with something healthy. Throw in some apples, oranges or healthy granola bars. Your child will thank you when they don’t have a stomach ache.

Glorious Glazes

Any one of these three glorious ham glazes will leave your guests’ mouths watering and ensure they come back next year (unless you’d prefer someone else do the cooking next time). Also, make sure to check out our ham prep tips at the end.

Pineapple Glaze

Ingredients

Ham
1 (15.25 oz.) can sliced pineapple, drained with juice reserved
1 (4 oz.) jar maraschino cherries, drained
1 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Before baking ham, place pineapple slices on ham with toothpicks and place cherries in center of pineapple.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice. Mix together and microwave for about five minutes, until mixture is thick.
  3. Pour some of this glaze over the ham about every 15 minutes in the last hour of baking, until all is used.

 

Honey Glaze
(18-20 servings)

Ingredients

10 to 12 lb. fully cooked bone-in ham
Whole cloves
½ cup honey
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 Tbsp. orange juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place ham, fat side up, on rack in roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer in thickest part. Bake, uncovered, for two hours.
  2. With sharp knife, remove skin, if any, then score fat into a one-inch pattern; stud each with a clove.
  3. Combine honey, sugar, mustard and orange juice in 1-quart saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to boil while stirring.
  4. Brush half of honey glaze over ham; bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Brush with rest of glaze and bake for 30 minutes until golden and thermometer reads 130 degrees F.
  6. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes before carving.

 

Orange Marmalade Glaze

Ingredients

Ham
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
¼ tsp. ground ginger
1 (10 oz.) jar orange marmalade
¼ cup orange juice

Instructions

  1. Mix marmalade, mustard, and ginger together. About 30 minutes before ham is done, spoon half of it over the ham.
  2. Add orange juice to the remaining sauce and simmer for about five minutes.
  3. Serve with ham as a sauce.

 

When choosing a Ham consider which type will be best for your cooking style. Bone-in hams are traditionally seen as more elegant, and boneless hams are considered easier to serve, both have the same great taste.
Here are some important tips to help you select, prepare, and serve your ham this Easter:

  • Plan on two to three servings per pound when serving bone-in ham. A boneless ham will yield four to five servings per pound.
  • Bone-in hams are available whole, or as a shank or butt half. Bone-in hams are trickier to carve than boneless hams. For those who like to keep it simpler, another option is to buy a ham that is pre-sliced or spiral sliced.
  • Unwrapped hams, in their original packaging, will stay fresh in the refrigerator for several weeks.
  • Virtually all hams come fully cooked (just check the label). Preparation is easy – unwrap, heat to an internal temperature of 140 degrees F, and serve. (Check out our post on meat thermometers for more information.) Follow the directions on the label and heat in a moderate (325-350 degrees F) oven. Or, if you prefer, you can serve the ham cold.

 

Packable Produce

PRoduce

Most of us want to eat healthy lunches and, for those of us who have kids, that they are eating wholesome lunches as well.. The challenge is lunch is most often eaten at school or work leaving us with the option of packing a lunch or eating out. When packing a lunch for yourself, or your child, it can be hard to include healthy options that aren’t going to end up smashed in a backpack by lunchtime or falling apart in your work bag. We’re here to help with eight ideas for snacks with produce that are packable and will still be looking and tasting fresh by lunchtime with no refrigeration.

  1. Carrots

Your kids are free to sit on their carrots; and they will still taste great! Pair with hummus for a protein packed snack.

  1. Apples

Skip the banana that may be brown by lunch and opt for an apple. Slices won’t last as long as whole apples, but if you squeeze a little lemon juice on them when you slice it, it will keep them from going brown. Pair with peanut butter for a kid-friendly favorite.

  1. Grapes

Grapes are much more durable than berries and are great served at room temp. Try pairing them with cheese for a delicious snack.

  1. Lettuce:

The perfect solution to soggy and smashed sandwiches? Lettuce wraps!

  1. Asian Pear

Many pears  will end up bruised and battered in a pre-packed lunch, but Asian pairs have a texture more similar to apples and a tough skin making them ideal for packing.

  1. Oranges

Oranges are one of the most packable produce items because of their tough peel!

  1. Snap Peas

Perfect for dipping or snacking, snap peas can withstand even the roughest of backpacks.

  1. Clementines

Not only do they have a rough skin like oranges, they are the perfect packing size and are a great source of Vitamin C.
