Food for thought

I was surfing the web today a bit as my substitute students worked on their classwork and I came across these two stories on MSN.

It seems that its not just restaurants that tend to over-size portions. However, this next article is a great guide for making your everyday homecooking a little healthier.

Inside a Healthy Pantry by Lisa Drayer R.D. - This is a really great list of staples to have on hand for making healthy meals and snacks anytime. Just looking at the list makes me hungry!
