I am so excited that it is spring with summer right around the corner! Nothing quite says summer like a big fat juicy watermelon. We have been spending a lot of time at the beach and this is one of my favorite summer fruits. When the weather is warm and I am feeling dehydrated watermelons seem to be just the right fix. It is beautiful how our bodies crave what is in season. Since 92% by weight of a watermelon is made up of water, fueling up on it is a great way to stay hydrated.
A few weeks ago I was talking to my sister-in-law about the snacks that are brought to the kids sporting games. Her concern is that a lot of them are pre-packaged processed foods that are also not food allergy friendly. And since most of the games or practices end right before dinner time, kids fill up on that stuff. My boys are not in sports yet, but we decided to put together ideas that we like to make for ready lunches and snacks. And are also great to bring to sports events.
