It takes homework to make healthy school lunches

You want your back-to-schooler to eat a healthy diet, so you pack a “wheat” bread sandwich and tuck a “juice” drink in her brown-bag lunch. But did you know that loaf simply labeled “wheat” may be just white bread with added coloring? And the “juice” drink may contain more water than juice?

Survive - A family guide to Thriving in a Toxic World

Health is so necessary to all duties

Snacks are Essential Food

People the world over have been ingenious in making food into essential snacks. There is an instinctive and practical need for food that stores well, is portable, and provides quick energy. Variety is sought, soft or crunchy, fruity or salty, lean or rich, depending upon mood and activity level. Unfortunately, industrial snack foods deplete energy and well-being with saturated, commonly hydrogenated (trans) fat, excessive poor quality salt, refined sugars, preservatives, dyes, artificial flavorings, additives, and a long list of toxic chemical processing aids.

Enjoyable Real FoodCherry Tree

Today, snacking is thought to be a bad thing. This is regrettable and unnecessary, ignoring beneficial snacks like EDEN's that are enjoyable real food that's very good for you. They nourish and energize, but do not deplete. They provide high quality protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy essential fatty acids (EFAs) containing poly and monounsaturated fat. They are rich in potent phytonutrients and antioxidants, that the vast majority of us do not get enough of. They provide essential fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Their antioxidants subdue oxygen free radicals. Researchers estimate that people need 3,000 to 5,000 Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) units of antioxidants daily in order to reach levels that benefit health. It's estimated current intake is only about 1,200 units per day for the average person. EDEN dried fruits offer far more than this per serving, and recently it's been verified that properly grown organic foods are far richer in antioxidants and phytonutrients than commercial counterparts.

Snacks with Many Uses

Popcorn Balls

Ingredients
• 1/2 cup EDEN Organic Popcorn
• 3 Tablespoons EDEN Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    or EDEN Organic Soybean Oil
• 1/2 teaspoon EDEN Sea Salt, optional
• 4 ounces EDEN All Mixed Up, 1 package
• 4 ounces EDEN All Mixed Up Too, 1 package
• 1/2 cup EDEN Organic Barley Malt Syrup

Directions
Heat oil in a large pot and pop corn according to package directions. Place popped corn in a large mixing bowl. Add the All Mixed Up and All Mixed Up Too snack mixes.

Place the barley malt and maple syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently for 5 to 7 minutes. Pour the hot syrup over the popped corn mixture. Mix thoroughly until all popcorn mixture is completely coated with syrup.
