My younger daughter does this thing where she eats the same breakfast every single day for six months. Luckily her current favorite is one of the healthiest breakfasts I can imagine. We call it “Banana Thing,” and here’s how to make it …

Peel a banana and slice it in half length-wise. Spread some natural peanut butter (or other nut butter) on one half, and put the other half back on top, like you’re making a sandwich. Spoon some plain yogurt (we use the 0% Fage Greek yogurt) on top of the banana. Drizzle with pure maple syrup or honey. Sprinkle your favorite muesli cereal on top.

So the Brooklyn Food Conference was great. Lots of people came by and I’m gearing up to do free consultations with 40 people!

I shared a table with Stacie and Michelle from Stacie and Michelle are two awesome ladies who are working to spread the word that our kids don’t need to be given special “kid” food to eat, a la chicken fingers and day-glo yogurt, but that they can and will enjoy the same healthy food as their parents if given half a chance to eat it. I highly recommend their blog,, which contains loads of kid-friendly recipes and family food tips. Be sure to check it out.
