We’re all on different schedules and have different body clocks, and our hunger kicks in at different times. If you’re someone for whom the (lunch) bell doesn’t toll until 1:30 p.m. or who likes to dine after 9 p.m. like the Spaniards, is that a problem? Read more

- A piece of this lasagna plus a green salad and even some dessert equals a well-balanced meal.
In honor of National Nutrition Month we’re giving you meal ideas that follow the USDA’s MyPlate recommendations. We’ve covered breakfast and lunch—now it’s dinner time.
Ending the day with a well-balanced meal is important. This is your last big change to take in any nutrients you may not have gotten enough of during the day. For example, if you have pasta primavera for lunch, be sure to include 3 to 4 ounces of protein for dinner. If you didn’t get in all your fruits during the day, make sure to add one for dessert.
Meal 1: Lasagna
Green Salad With Strawberry-Balsamic Vinaigrette
Baked Banana With Cinnamon and Honey
Food groups: protein, grain, dairy, fruit, veggie

In my years of practice, I found that many families don’t eat dinner together – or any meal for that matter. A recent study released by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University revealed what a big difference family meals make in your children’s lives.
About the Study
Family mealtime has drastically decreased since the 1950’s. Although you may not initially see the connection, family meals play a huge role in your kids’ lives. Yes, it’s important to eat together in order to sit down and catch up on the day, but there’s more to it. The study called The Importance of Family Dinners VI dug deep to see if there was a connection between the frequency of family meals and teen substance abuse. It also explored what teens thought about the concept of family dinners. The results will shock you.
This family-friendly comfort food brings back those warm childhood memories. For the filler, Ellie Krieger uses extra-lean ground beef to cut the fat and pinto beans to add in fiber. Have them for a simple mid-week dinner and save some for lunch the next day.
