Shannon Crocker, RD has a go-to time saving trick: “I like to grill a whole turkey on the barbeque for a weekend dinner (it’s easier than you think!) and then use leftovers for stir fry, pizza or soup during a busy week.

Give kids lunch that packs a nutritious punch with these tips from RD Shannon Crocker: With a busy schedule, it can be tempting to buy pre-made lunch foods. Don’t give in! Highly processed, ready-to-eat options can be high in sugar, fat or salt and can result in an energy crash. Your kids need good fuel at lunch to stay alert and ready to learn. Pack lunches with easy yet healthy options, like sandwiches on whole grain breads or these veggie filled turkey wraps! Learn more at…
