Vegan Punjab Curry with Moraccan carrot salad wraps

Vegan Eggplant Punjab
This looks super fancy I don’t think I can make this, Wrong! It is super easy. The trick is in any situation in the kitchen get water boiling to steam veggies or make rice/ noodles whatever it is that water can slow you down. The next trick is finding premade vegan eggplant Punjab which trader Joes sells. I add onions and green peas to spread serving sizes and add more flavor.

Kids love vegetables when presented in an appetizing display

08school-lunches-slide-FHP1-blog480[1]Undercover kid video taped what was really being served at his grade school lunchroom cafeteria after a media storm and celeb chefs like Rachel Ray supposedly overhauled the menu. For anyone that ate school lunches the video entertaining. This highlights the need to follow-up with people and organizations that are trying to change but do not really have the education or set up to sustain the ideal food options. Kids love vegetables when presented in an appetizing display, it is not that they think produce is yucky but that most parents do not present their kids with vegetables cooked correctly.
