An Apple A Day

Here are some smart dinner recipes that the whole family can enjoy!

Between dropping off and picking up the kids, a full day’s work and the endless demands of the day, Mom’s need quick and easy dinner recipes that deliver nutritional value and help to turn

As part of our COA Mind & Body program we believe that eating well is a learned experience, one passed on by the parent. By opening up the world of “nourishing” food children make better food choices and develop a healthy respect for nutrition.

We know you are superstars both on the job and at home but every star needs a break once in a while. Let COA Apple-A-Day Blog help you with

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Shop & Prep Once A Week

Pick one day a week and do the bulk -- if not all -- of your shopping and pre-cooking on that day. It might sound like a big time commitment, but doing everything at once means you only have to preheat the oven once, chop your meats and veggies once and clean your kitchen once. For instance, to chop all of the ingredients for one meal, it takes about 10 minutes. However, to chop all of your ingredients for 15 meals at once, it takes about 40 minutes. That’s a huge time saver!
