Tonight, I had a 4-H meeting. 4-H is a great program for kids to learn life skills and work with farm animals. I take sewing, knitting, market hog, and of course cooking. I think it’s neat to raise hogs and then cook with pork. It’s a great way of knowing where your food comes from. It’s important to know. The recipes in the 4-H cookbook aren’t necessarily the healthiest. It’s mostly basic comfort food, which is never a bad thing. I like to adjust the recipes to my health likings.

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
