Healthy Meal Plan: Global Potluck

I love the two Sweet Pea's elementary school.  Hardly a week goes by without me saying "I love this place," or "thank you for leading us here."  The best part?  The boys love the school going, love learning, love sharing what they've learned.

I'm a very thankful mom.

But two things this week that made me really step back and say, "wow!"  The first, is a partnership our school is doing with artisans in Third World Countries, involving fair trade and education.  Wow.

The second was a potluck that R's teacher put together, complete with a World Cafe theme.  R's class has students and families from Egypt, Ethiopia, Brazil, Germany, just to name a few.  Each family brought a dish from their heritage.

We ate *good* at the potluck:

You ready to eat good (and healthy) next week?  Here's a meal plan:
