|The Wolfman's Brother enjoying: 2 dried plums, 2 sugar cookies, 3 veggie straws, 4 chocolate chips, 10 almond slivers. Dill will surely not get eaten. I know, I need more fresh options but at least the dried plums are a good start.|
In 4th Grade my classmate Jason brought in this cookbook and demonstrated the recipe for the vegetable monsters. It was a lot of fun. Mother subsequently purchased for me, during Cook Book Book Report Month. My friend, the author and cartoonist Marc Tyler Nobleman always loved that I had this book on my shelf, as he is a super hero all-knowing guru.
|Very early adopters of healthy eating guidelines in the early 80s, this book's messages of healthy eating stayed with me throughout my childhood. I believe this is out of print but you can currently get it on Amazon for $75.00|
I actually ended up taking Dr. Joan Gussow's course on Nutritional Ecology at Teacher's College of Columbia University. I recently wrote her a note thanking her for her work. I mentioned this book and how much it meant to me. Dr. Gussow didn't remember me, but that didn't matter. She is a trailblazer when it comes to healthy eating. For her I have the highest regard.
Yeah, some locally-sourced fruits would have been a good addition to the Wolfman Brother's snack.
At least he had organic milk for those cookies.
