Karen GilmanHi, I am Karen Gilman and I am here to celebrate with you your child’s choice to ‘go vegetarian.’ You are here because you worry they will not get the nutrients they need or you are looking for tips on how to make healthy vegetarian meals. I am here to help put your mind at ease and give you the tools to support this vegetarian journey! Be sure to check out some of my programs and free resources.

My Teenager Has Become Vegetarian... Now What?

Your teenager has declared they no longer want to eat meat.  How are they going to get enough protein, calcium or iron? Can their growing body get enough of these nutrients and the calories its needs if they do not eat any meat?

Not to worry. They will be fine as long as they eat the right foods. I know only too well how challenging it can be to get kids to eat properly.  Boys, too, can be picky eaters, although they don’t face the same nutritional challenges as girls.

You don’t want them to become dependent on multivitamins to bridge the gap, which is why it is important to ensure they get the nutrients they need from the foods they are eating.

5 Healthier-Than- Cereal Breakfast Options

5 Healthier-Than- Cereal Breakfast Options

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But did you know that despite cereal flooding the shelves at your grocery store, cereal isn’t as healthy as marketing makes it out to be? Unless your family is eating good quality muesli each morning with some fruit and nuts, then cereal is not going to be giving them the nutrients they need to start their day off on the right foot.  I know everyone is rushing to get out of the house in the morning but taking a few minutes to do some preparation is going to give your kids the fuel they need to focus  and stay energized throughout the day

Being Vegetarian On Halloween

Being Vegetarian On Halloween

Are Halloween treats vegetarian?

So it’s Halloween and you might be wondering how this impacts you as a vegetarian. Well, it does if you don’t want to eat any animal products whatsoever. You may find this surprising but some candies and chocolates contain animal-derived ingredients. Believe me, I found out one day and was very disappointed.

As summer comes to an end and we all have think about the amazing hiatus in lunch-making we’ve all had. Yes, nine weeks of no lunch preparation. Amazing! But unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.
