Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Los Angeles Kids

Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Los Angeles Kids

Healthy, growing children need to snack between meals for proper nutrition. Most West Hollywood parents have probably had the experience of forgetting an afternoon snack. What happens? Kids finally notice they’re hungry about an hour before dinner, and boy is it hard to wait!

A great snack ingredient is peanut butter. It is an inexpensive source of protein and calories and gives West Hollywood children the nutrients they need to grow and to stay healthy.

Here are some great healthy snack ideas using peanut butter for Tarzana and Brentwood kids.

Peanut Butter Banana Pops

Bananas, cut in half width-wise
Popsicle sticks
Peanut butter
Chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other topping

Take the popsicle sticks and push them carefully into the cut bananas. Spread peanut butter over the bananas and roll in nuts or other topping. Freeze. Enjoy.

Peanut Butter Balls

This is the kind of recipe you can’t really mess up, and the portions are approximate.

about 1 cup of peanut butter
a few tablespoons of honey (2-3)
a few tablespoons of instant dry milk

Mix everything together until it forms a large ball. Pinch off small pieces of dough, and roll into ball shapes. Store in the refrigerator, and pull them out at snack time.

Recession Proof Healthy Chocolate For Los Angeles

Los Angeles Hot Job In one of his always-insightful messages, Dan Martin, Xocai Vice President of distributor relations emphasized an important fact : Los Angeles Direct Marketing Businesses do well in economic downturns.

(I quote from his message with a few minor additions to personalize it for my readers):

The majority of today’s Los Angeles workforce is on the brink of economic collapse, living paycheck-to-paycheck, CA retirement funds dwindling or gone, and wishing they were self-employed. Hollywood people can’t afford to tell their Brentwood employer, “That’s it, I’m done.”

But our industry is booming in CA! Direct selling is one of the few business models that do well in West Hollywood in economic downturns. Your efforts are what allow you to break free from the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, set realistic retirement goals, and answer only to yourself.

I am sure you don’t need Dan Martin to remind you of the barren West Hollywood economic landscape. I was feeling uneasy about my West Hollywood professional future when I took a risk and started my own Los Angeles Xocai antioxidant chocolate business.

It wasn’t necessarily a financial risk, Xocai has low start-up costs for Brentwood and Tarzana weight-loss chocolate entrepreneurs. It was more of a psychological risk. I had to believe that Hollywood home-based antioxidant chocolate business success is possible.

Fortunately, my healthy chocolate business got off the ground quickly. (That’s not surprising; I sell healthy chocolate to Los Angeles antioxidant chocolate lovers.) Early success with short-term goals builds the confidence to reach long-term financial goals.

Let’s talk about your financial future. My number is Skype: wendynorthbeach and my email address is coco@chocolateontheweb.com.

Cheers!! Wendy

All-Natural Energy Drink

Los Angeles Dark Chocolate I am Wendy Leatherwood, a distributor in West Hollywood. I am excited to tell you about Xocai Activ drink.

Of course the ingredients in Xocai Activ drink are nutritional powerhouses: unprocessed cacao, acaí berries, blueberries and concord grapes. (I would expect no less from Xocai, the original antioxidant chocolate company.) However, what Activ does not contain is equally important.

Xocai Activ has NO:

  • Added colors
  • Artificial flavors
  • Preservatives

Xocai has formulated Activ for the West Hollywood purist who wants an all-natural energy drink with the highest antioxidant content of any drink sold in West Hollywood.

Even though Activ contains no preservatives, you don’t have to worry about it spoiling. It is sold in powdered form which keeps for a year without losing its nutritional value. To make a delicious chocolate health drink, add ten ounces of warm water to the Activ powder and shake well. Then add eleven ounces of cold water and refrigerate overnight. Some of my Brentwood Activ drinkers like their shake a little thicker so they add slightly less water.

My active Tarzana and Hollywood Activ lovers who are always on the go appreciate the fact that Activ dark chocolate drink comes in powdered form. It is lighter than bottles or cans of liquid and takes less space in a backpack or suitcase.

Activ is the ultimate antioxidant beverage for the active Los Angeles lifestyle!

If you would like an Activ Xocai review or information about other Xocai products such as meal replacement shake, come join me at my next West Hollywood Xocai meeting.

Call me at Skype: wendynorthbeach or email me at coco@chocolateontheweb.com and I will let you know the time and place and answer any questions you may have about Xocai antioxidant chocolate.

Chocolate Diet In CA?

West Hollywood Weight Loss Chocolate Eventually, it happens to every West Hollywood man or woman who has taken a haphazard approach to diet and exercise. The Health Reckoning. The Big Wake-up Call. Harsh Reality.

Call it what you may, but eventually us Hollywood slackers all realize that we have to live a healthy lifestyle to feel good, look good, and stay active.

For many Los Angeles folks, that means improving diet and incorporating more exercise into chaotic schedules. Perhaps Los Angeles teens and Brentwood twenty-somethings can function without nutritious food, adequate sleep and regular exercise without noticing any ill-effects. But that lifestyle cannot continue indefinitely without serious consequence.

Our metabolism slows down as we age. It seems to take more discipline to maintain a healthy weight at 45 vs 25, especially around CA. If you are having a hard time keeping your weight at a sensible level because you indulge in chocolate regularly, Xocai antioxidant chocolate is for you. Xocai delivers the dark chocolate fix without the fat and calories found in conventional chocolate products you find around West Hollywood.

My name is Wendy Leatherwood. I would love to chat with you about all the health benefits of Xocai healthy dark chocolate. I hold Xocai meetings at UCLA Library in the West Hollywood area . I invite you to join me at my next meeting. If you want to lose weight but still enjoy chocolate daily, I can show you how. Contact me at Skype: wendynorthbeach or coco@chocolateontheweb.com for information about my next meeting.

Is Juicing Better For Los Angeles Kids?

Is Juicing Better For Los Angeles Kids?

Los Angeles health trends come and go and I have recently noticed that the practice of juicing fruits and vegetables has made its way back into the CA children’s nutrition spotlight.

In my experience, I have found that the only Los Angeles parents who have been successful at making their own super-healthy juices over the long term are Los Angeles vegetarians who dedicate a lot of daily time to preparing their food.

Most Los Angeles people who buy an expensive juicer use it for a few weeks before it is relegated to the back shelf of the pantry. Though juicing provides a way to improve your children’s nutrition, it can be time-consuming and expensive. After buying fresh fruits and vegetables, it can cost several dollars to make one glass. Of course, if you have ever tasted fruit and vegetable juices made fresh, you know how delicious they are. For many Los Angeles parents, this is worth every minute and every dollar spent.

Does juicing provide more nutrition than eating whole fruits and vegetables?

I haven’t come across any convincing evidence of this but I do see the value for Los Angeles parents whose kids enjoy drinking juice more than eating whole fruits and vegetable. Mixing vegetables with sweet fruits in a juice can disguise their taste and make them more palatable than the same vegetables raw or cooked.

Los Angeles parents who would like to start juicing should keep in mind the fact that juicing usually removes all the fiber from the fruits and veggies used. A glass of fresh juice also contains a lot of calories!

West Hollywood All-Natural Antioxidant Drink

Los Angeles All-Natural Meal Replacement Drink Do you have an active West Hollywood lifestyle? Does your day consist of cooking, cleaning, getting children to their Tarzana school and after-school lessons and trying to keep up with the laundry?

Are you a Hollywood businessman or West Hollywood businesswoman who spends a lot of time in airports, hotel rooms and rental cars?

Do you work two Brentwood jobs trying to keep ahead of the bills? Are you fortunate enough to have discretionary time to pursue hobbies? Are you a full-time West Hollywood college student who works part time and studies late into the night?

Do you get up at 5:00 to squeeze in a six-mile run before the rest of your West Hollywood household wakes up? Are you busy searching for a Los Angeles job? Are you caring for an aging parent, chronically-ill spouse, or special-needs child? Are you a Los Angeles retiree who unselfishly contributes your time to community humanitarian organizations?

Whew! If any of these descriptions are apt, Xocai’s Activ antioxidant beverage is for you.

Activ combines the wonderful flavors of unprocessed cacao, acai berries, blueberries and concord grapes, leaving you with a lasting, ‘dark-chocolate’ taste. The antioxidant content, or the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) Value of Xocai Activ is similar to the other MXI Corp. chocolate products and antioxidant beverages. However, the approach of Activ is slightly different clearly focusing on the ‘All-Natural’ West Hollywood chocolate lover.

If you are sensitive to artificial colors and flavors, Activ is for you. If you are careful about avoiding chemicals, Activ is for you. If you choose foods that are minimally processed, Activ is for you!

Do you know anyone in West Hollywood who doesn’t have an active lifestyle? Xocai Activ is the health drink your body is craving. To try the Xocai Activ all-natural beverage, contact me at Skype: wendynorthbeach or send me a note from my Contact page.

I recommend Xocai because I can eat all the chocolate I want without gaining weight.

Life is too short to not be healthy!

Are Multivitamins Necessary For Tarzana Kids?

Are Multivitamins Necessary For Tarzana Kids?

Hello Tarzana! Welcome to today’s Tarzana children’s nutrition post. I am Wendy Leatherwood, and I promote children’s health in Tarzana and the 90046 zip code area.

Today’s post discusses children’s vitamins. Many Tarzana parents give their kids a chewable or liquid multivitamin. We all know that it is essential for Tarzana kids to get sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals and we often give them a pill to fill in nutritional gaps, just in case. Are multivitamins necessary for Tarzana kids?

I have found that Tarzana pediatricians have varying opinions about this issue. Some Los Angeles children’s doctors recommend parents give their children vitamins in pill form or at least don’t discourage it.

More importantly, Tarzana pediatricians urge parents to feed their children a variety of nutritious foods, presumably because vitamins and minerals in foods are better absorbed.

The Mayo Clinic website offers the following advice for Tarzana parents who give their children a multivitamin:1

Make sure the multivitamin is designed for your child’s age group.
Choose one that provides 100 percent of the daily value (DV) for all vitamins and minerals.
Store multivitamins out of your child’s reach and make it clear that they are not candy.
Don’t use multivitamins as a replacement for proper nutrition.

I sell a great-tasting healthy snack packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other good stuff for kids. To order, contact me today.
