With this new paleo diet that my Dad’s trying out, there is a lot of alternatives for food that the diet doesn’t allow. He uses arrowroot instead of cornstarch to thicken sauces. He uses coconut aminos to add a healthy flavor. He got gluten free, low sodium soy sauce. He made his famous ginger beef, kale, mushroom stir fry tonight. The recipe had to be altered to be made paleo and he did it. Also, my dad would normally eat it with white rice but today he chose brown. I’m so proud!

Hi! My name is Chloe Long. I am 12 years old, and I am going into 7th grade. Three summers ago, I was the winner from the state of Montana for the Healthy Kids Lunchtime Challenge. I entered an original recipe called "What You Don't Like Tofu?!" Stir fry. I got to go to a lunch with 53 other winners (from 50 other United States and 4 territories) at the White House. We got to meet Michelle Obama, and she dined with us as well. It was an amazing, unforgettable experience. I have always been into cooking and healthy eating, but this past summer I really got into it. I love to cook meals to my liking, and health is very important to me. Exercising and eating healthy food keeps me feeling great and energized. I decided to start this blog to teach other young kids about the importance in healthy eating, and how fun cooking for yourself, family, and friends can be. I will be posting recipes, pictures, and facts about my meals that I make through out the upcoming school year. It can be hard to have good, healthy meals when you have a busy schedule. I will be giving tips and tricks for packable lunches, energizing breakfasts, and great dinners. With a combination of exercise and awesome food, I hope everyone has a wonderful, healthy school year. Happy cooking! View all posts by Chloe Long
