Cooking with the Moms
Homemade smoothies are naturally sweet, easy to make, and loaded with great nutrition thanks to all the fresh and frozen fruit, yogurt, and 100% fruit juice. To celebrate the beginning of summer (and to stay cool), Janice and Liz whip up three of their favorite fruit smoothies: Mom's Mango Smoothie, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, and Blueberry Frosty. They also serve up some good news on blueberries, a super food packed with health-enhancing antioxidants.

Burgers are what's for dinner tonight. That's because it's that time of year again when backyard grills get fired up and burgers make their way to the family table. With lean ground beef and some surprising ingredients including black beans and quick-cooking oats, Janice and Liz cook up two better burgers -- Cheesy Black Bean Burgers and a Lean Mean Cheeseburger – bursting with flavor and nutrition.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day… so don't skip it! Research shows that eating breakfast can lead to higher test scores, greater alertness in the classroom, a healthier body weight, and a more balanced diet rich in calcium, iron, fiber and vitamins A and C. Janice and Liz hope their recipes for Toasty-O-Granola and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes tempt everyone to eat their morning meal.
