The Great Food Race!

This weeks collision of parenting and homeschool:  Our mini unit study on plants (and plant based nutrition) resulted in the crazy idea of the "great food race" . . . with each family member moving forward or backward based on their food choices.  I assigned things like sprouts, raw foods, fresh juices, probiotic smooties & alkaline rich foods the highest point values and processed food / sweets really, really low values (with a continuum in between the two extremes).  Dad had a few too many cups of coffee and chocolate chip cookies today - so, he's still behind the starting line!  We'll have to start him out with some carrot/apple juice tomorrow to help him out!
