Are you jump-starting your day and eating breakfast?

Krista_NewsBreakfast is an important meal, as you are "break"ing the "fast" from not eating since the night before.  Krista shared some great tips on K2 news recently: Watch it here!

A quick, easy and healthy breakfast is making your own instant oatmeal packets (this recipe can be found in the Cent$ible Nutrition Cookbook), as simple as this:

Past news...

Hula Hoopin' Fun for Father's Day

"A Celebration of Families" is a National Event, this was the first time it was held in Wyoming. Almost all agencies involved were non-profit agencies who work with the same clientele as the Cent$ible Nutrition Program. CNP had a booth at the event and featured how to make your own trail mix, where participants could sample trail mix variations and pick up program information.  CNP had hula hoops and jump ropes available and the kids loved them!

Participants had a great time! To see more pictures of the event, visit Casper Housing Authority's Facebook Page.

CNP Educators prepare master mix for distribution(Photo Credit: Casper Star Tribune)

 CNP educators, Michelle Hans (center) and Krista Brown (right), along with many volunteers, prepared over 200 quarts of Master Mix for the Food for Thought Project.  Each kit sent home with families contained a plump bag of Master Mix, approx.... one quart along with a pamphlet of recipes and Cent$ible Nutrition Program information.

Master Mix is a flour based baking mix, that is the foundation for many nutritious recipes from Impossible Taco Pie to delicious brownies. Karla Case, CNP Educator in Natrona, hopes that families will learn that it is not difficult to prepare nutritious, cost-effective meals from scratch.  Included with the mix kits is our program information if parents want to learn more about CNP and take a class, that is also a bonus! 

Recipe for master mix and many other low-cost nutritious recipes can be found on our Recipe Catalog page.  Visit Food for Thought on Facebook or the project online, for more information.
