Playful May


Do you remember the joy of unwrapping a fruit roll-up or the creamy comfort of macaroni and cheese from your younger years? This May, we're scaling the clock back but with a "grown-up" hat on. It's time to recreate these childhood favorites with a twist that not only nourishes your nostalgia but also your body. We’re calling it Playful May, where we give you permission to act like a kid again—only this time, you're in charge, and your menu is getting a healthy makeover.


Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

Who said mac and cheese has to be a guilty pleasure reserved for cheat days? With this Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese recipe, you'll introduce a rich, nutty flavor and a truckload of nutrients without waving goodbye to the familiar cheesy goodness. The butternut squash adds a sweet depth of flavor and creaminess, not to mention a boost of vitamins A and C, without all the empty calories from heavy cream and butter.


Banana Breakfast Sandwiches

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches hold a dear place in our hearts, known for their satisfying blend of sweetness and nuttiness. But why not turn it up a notch? Swap out the white bread for a wholegrain option for added fiber and heartiness. Our take on this classic combines the creamy texture of peanut butter, the natural sweetness of bananas, and a dash of nutrition from seeds or nuts for a morning meal that will have you bursting with energy.


Oven-Dried Fruit Leather

Fruit Roll-Ups were the luxuries of lunchboxes across playgrounds. Now, you can make your own without any of the preservatives or artificial sweeteners. Using our Oven-Dried Fruit Leather recipe, you can create a chewy, sweet snack with pure fruit. Whether you choose to go with berry-pineapple or apple-blueberry, this is a fun snack that counts towards your five-a-day.


Make this month all about reliving our cherished memories with a nutrient-packed punch. By reimagining these childhood staples with a health-conscious lens, you're not just feeding your nostalgia; you're crafting habits that nourish your inner child and adult self equally.
