Last week, I spent spring break in the incredibly beautiful Park City, Utah. I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach a Kid’s Healthy Cooking Class at Park City Mountain Resort making Apres Ski Snacks.
The kids had a blast making four recipes starting with Mini Banana Bread Loaves made with Greek yogurt and ground flaxseed.
I loved working with the staff at the Park City Mountain Resort. They made it so easy for me even though sometimes it’s tough working back in a big resort kitchen. I was looking for a masher for our banana bread, and this is all I could find.
I do appreciate all of wonderful help from Krista, Mike and Deirdra. Y’all are the best, and I had such a great time working with you!
Since it was St. Patrick’s Day, we also made a healthy Herb Dip appetizer that the kids devoured.
They also especially loved preparing the Homemade Granola Bars. It was one of the more difficult recipes, but definitely worth it.
The kids also made homemade make-your-own pizzas. Everyone used their own unique touch. When the food came out of the oven, everyone was ready. They were happy (and hungry) to eat all of their healthy homemade snacks, especially after a long day of skiing.
Be sure to check out Park City Mountain Resort and Snowmama’s the next time you’re thinking about a wonderful family vacation. My kid’s had never skied before, and they were off and running after a day of lessons from the wonderful instructors here. We all had a wonderful time and can’t wait to go back!
I have to admit. I don’t have a sports water bottle. I have been looking for a new one, and I am always checking out what people are carrying around at the gym or in yoga. Here’s some really fun, cool ones that I am trying to decide between. Let me know if you have a favorite. I am in Park City this week, and yesterday I taught a Kid’s Cooking Class at the Park City Mountain Resort. I’ll tell you more about that when I get back in town. In the meantime, have a super weekend, Alison
Klean Kanteen made the first BPA free metal bottle. This “Klean Kanteen Reflect” water bottle is sleek and cool. It has no paint or plastic just sustainably harvested bamboo, food-grade silicone and stainless steel.
Lifefactory’s largest 22 ounce glass water bottle has a fun modern design with a wide mouth which makes adding ice cubes, fruit and tea bags easy. Shown here in light blue, these reusable beverage bottles are free of BPA, phthalates, PVC, polycarbonates, lead and latex. Check out all the other bright colors. (They also make baby bottles.)
Pie Day was earlier this week. If you are a lover like most people, this PI314 Reflected as Pie made by Sigg. It is BPA Free and has a lifetime warranty.
This 25 ounce sport bottle from Camelback, called “Podium Big Chill”, is BPA free and is said to keep water cold twice as long. It is also has a great seal eliminating any chance of spills and leaks.
The 17-oz EcoVessel Insulated Straw Bottle shown in this great metallic purple is a great bottle for those constantly on the go. It will keep your beverages cold for hours. The unique straw top makes drinking easier so you can drink from the bottle without unscrewing the cap. And, the straw won’t open accidentally in your bag or car.
If you are a runner, how can you not love this Sigg Water bottle by Cafe Press? It’s made from a single piece of aluminum, so it’s lightweight and crack-resistant.
Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17th, and I am so excited that I will be spending my Saint Patrick’s Day teaching a Kid’s Cooking Class at the Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah. We we will be making kid-friendly apres ski snacks to make in the condo. See more information about this fun class on the“Snowmama” website. One of the recipes I’ll be making in the class is this healthy, easy and very simple Saint Patrick’s Day Fresh Herb Dip. It’s a great way to get the kids to try fresh herbs such as basil and dill and to eat fresh vegetables. I like to use reduced-fat Greek yogurt in this recipe because it has so may health benefits and is filled with protein which is perfect after a long day of skiing. Enjoy this recipe on Saint Patrick’s Day or any time of the year.
