Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Professor Pea Broccoli Shelton & Mr. Figpin Carrot Tops

As some of you all know, my daughter, Gabby, attends Metro Christian Academy in Tulsa, OK. Metro is a Pre-K thru 12th grade school that's aim is to educate children in their mind, body & spirit. Although it has been a big financial commitment (sacrifice) for our family, it has also been a tremendous blessing for us, especially for my daughter.

The school actually has a Health Board, of which I am a volunteer (an obvious perfect fit for me). For the last 3 years our group has done all sorts of activities to bring awareness to the student body, faculty and parents regarding ways to integrate more healthful life practices into their lives. We've had lots of fun with it and now everyone at school really looks forward to "Respect Your Body Week," each fall.

For today's elementary school assembly, we flew in a very special guest. Professor Pea Broccoli Shelton from the world renowned and highly esteemed EatYourVeggies University. I felt an instant and uncanny kindred connection with Prof. Shelton and was especially intrigued with her vibrant hair, yet slightly annoyed with her Julia Child-esque voice.  I hope you will enjoy the clip and very special thanks to Metro mom & RFR member, Ronda Roberson for filming!



Tomorrow we'll be taking over the lunch room at Metro and serving delicious samples of Green Smoothies to the student body and faculty. We have invited parents to come join their students during lunch so they can gain knowledge on how to add more fruits & veggies into their family's diets by making  mouth-watering & highly nutritious green smoothies for their families. In addition to my VitaMix, I'll be packing along my video camera to capture a bit of the action to share with you here at RFR!

Wow that was too much lol. I am guessing that is Gordon as Mr. Figpin? That is great how active you guys are in your community. You are always an inspiration. I know I always tell you how great you look (which I do mean) but Mr Figpin Carrot Tops got a healthy glow around him also. You both look so healthy. They Treated Mr Figpin like a rock star upon entry. That was funny.
Hahhahha.....no, Mr Figpin is really Mr.Figpin - THAT'S his REAL NAME! He's just another dad of a Metro student, but you're right, he did have a healthy glow about him! LOL!

How did the kids like the green smoothies?
This reminds me of Jamie Oliver doing his Food Revolution and he was running around in the school play yard dressed up like a pea pod...ha ha ha ha ha.
OK folks, what have you been putting in your pie hole today?
I found my first young thai coconut and learned out to open it without chopping my fingers off.
Love youtube. Love you Prof. Penni Broccoli Shelton!
Always a pleasure to see the good professor! LOL, a cross between Julia Child and Dame Edna...and, who occasionally slips into her southern twang. ツ

Eat your veggies! Move it or lose it!

Give the professor a smooch from me, will ya?
xoxo
That was neat - what a great idea to get questions from the kids in advance.
Great video Penni.....My daughter Haylee watched it with me and we can't wait for the green smoothie vid! Haylee says she likes your name.........cuz she loves broccoli! Love that you do this!
