How does Cassandra approach nutrition at home?

  • Tune into your body. Even kids can use their intuition to understand what they want and how much.

  • Balance. We are balanced. It’s OK to eat a cookie from time to time.

  • Watch your words. “I choose my words around food wisely. I watch out for the ‘shoulds’ and the ‘bads’. You have to be careful about food perceptions, especially with my daughters. I try to be mindful!”

  • Cassandra reminds us that sitting down for meals teaches us to slow down. You don’t have to multitask with everything!

Foublie is a big proponent of family meals. (Did you know that there are nutrition and academic benefits to a family dinner?!)

  • “It’s hard for people to take a moment and be mindful. But sitting down helps us be in tune with our bodies and our fullness and hunger signals”.

What’s Cassandra’s go-to family meal?

Stir-fry!

This is a 10 minute meal people! To make it balanced and delicious she starts with lots of veggies, adds a protein like tempeh, shrimp or chicken. From there the varieties are endless.  Her favorite is adding coconut milk and a scoop of curry paste. Yum!
