Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Smoothies offer a quick and convenient way to boost nutritional intake, whether you include them as part of breakfast-to-go, or a sport recovery shake.

Your family can build-your-own pasta salad and the kids can participate in choosing the type of pasta, vegetables, or cheese they would like with it. This is my favourite version...   Ingredients: 250 grams spiral pasta (~5 cups cooked) - I prefer a whole grain, organic Italian pasta called 'Bella Italia' 1/4 of a red onion, chopped 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half 1/2 cup cucumber, diced 1/2 large yellow pepper, diced 1/4 cup light feta...
