What I Would Change

If I could change one thing it would be the school lunches. I honestly don’t think that the students like most of the food. I think we should serve stuff the kids might actually like more. We should not serve anything artificial. It would be nice to have fresh fruit, meat, and vegetables. Personally I don’t think it’s a “must have” for dessert I would just want to have some more fresh items for lunch.

New Lunches

I think we should change a few things about our school lunch. One, we should add a dessert for every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I think people would like it if we had, ice cream, cake, cupcakes, brownies, etc. for an option. Next, we should have a better and healthier menu. A few healthier options could be, real tasting meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, etc. And lastly, there should be a soup and sandwich bar everyday in case the students don´t like what they have scheduled on the menu. A few sandwich options could be, ham, turkey, and there would be some veggies and cheeses to add on to your sandwich. And if we added some chicken noodle soup and wild rice to that I think it would be very popular. I think people would eat the school lunch more often if we added these new ideas to our school.

Make a Change!!

If I could change the world I would make the whole world healthy with fresh food and water. It would take a lot of work but it would be worth it! A lot of people are starving or eat unhealthy. I would like to change that. Every kid or adult deserves fresh healthy food. I would also love this because I could travel the world and meet new people. I’m a pretty shy person but that could change very quickly. I could have many people that want to help come with me too. This would make a big change in everyones’ lifestyle.

Make a Healthy Choice!

Tirana-44 David via Compfight

If I could change something about our school, I would add healthier choices to our lunch program.  I would love for our school to have soup and salad bar available every day.  There could be a soup du jour (soup of the day) I know that several teachers would eat this, and I bet students would too! I would also like to see fresh fruit on our plates, such as watermelon, strawberries, and kiwi.  Eating healthy is very important for our bodies, and it also helps fuel our minds.

While I love hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries, I think our school could serve healthier options that kids would still eat.

Here is an example menu of healthy meals I would like to eat:

Monday – grilled chicken & vegetable stir fry with brown rice, edamame, milk, and strawberries

—-OR—- salad bar with chicken noodle soup

Tuesday – turkey burgers with all the fixings, sweet potato wedges, milk, and watermelon

—-OR—- salad bar with tomato soup

Wednesday – baked pork chops, collared greens, wild rice, milk, and apple slices

—-OR—- salad bar with chicken wild rice soup

Thursday – baked parmesan chicken breasts, whole wheat noodles & marinara sauce, broccoli, milk, and orange slices

—-OR—- salad bar with beef vegetable soup

Friday – hummus and grilled vegetable wrap, boiled egg, string cheese, milk, and kiwi

I think if we serve healthy food options, students will eat it.

A Choice

I had to make a choice (obviously not a hard choice). I was in Tennessee and my cousins and I went to get ice cream and when we went I had to decide if I wanted to get cotton candy or blueberry cheesecake ice cream. It took me about four minutes to choose and I picked blueberry cheesecake.

I love churros

I love churros but I didn´t know how to make them.And I actually found a video! Youtuber Rosanna Pansino did a video on how to make homemade churros. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J0xiyucHVs

Here are the ingredients:

10 cups of oil

1 cup of water

4 cups of sugar(To roll the churros in )

1 cup of flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 egg

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

2 tablespoons of sugar(to make the churros)

3 tablespoons of ground cinnamon

My dad let me put in the ingredients and he let my little sister mix them.When we had to put the dough in the piping bag,we lost the tip so we had to just make cylinder churros. It turns out there was a lot of cinnamon sugar mix left.My personal advice is either double the dough mix or cut half of the cinnamon sugar mix.When my dad took them out,he had under cooked them but they were still good.We tried to cooked them longer in the second batch and they were just right.
