Provider blog by  Monica Bernard-Thompson, RDN, CDN, CLC

While you are running around, completing errands or taking your children to after school programs, it is much easier to stop at a fast food chain for a quick meal than it is to prepare a healthy dish. But if you were to prepare snacks for the entire week, you would be more likely to eat healthy. Having no time is a common reason we hear for unhealthy eating. The truth is that if we plan better,  we can create healthier habits for the entire family. What if you did have recipes that were quick and easy to make? With just 10 minutes, you can prepare Parmesan Kale Chips, package them in sandwiches bags and enjoy them for the entire week.
