Deliciously Nutritious, Inc. was created in 2006 by Melissa and Andre Sherwood, who saw a direct correlation between what children were or were not eating and the alarming increase in the rates of Type II diabetes and obesity in children. As the parents of two beautiful children we are naturally concerned for our own children as well as children around the world. We work diligently to put together programs that reach out to families to teach healthy eating, nutrition, fitness, cooking and promote all around healthy lifestyles.

STORING LEFTOVER TOMATO PASTE
Most recipes for pasta sauce and chili call for only a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste. If your paste comes in a tube, leftovers aren’t a problem. But if it’s in a can, don’t toss the remainder or let it dry out in the refrigerator. Instead, freeze it in tablespoon-size portions in an ice-cube tray. Once they’re solid, transfer the cubes to a plastic freezer bag. Later add them directly to recipes—no need to thaw. Try this with pesto and other sauces too.
PEEL GINGER WITH A SPOON
Ginger can be tricky to peel with all its bumps and irregularities. Rather than using a paring knife or vegetable peeler, reach for the spoon. Scrape it against the skin and it'll come right off, following every contour and minimizing waste.
USE EGG SHELLS TO REMOVE EGG SHELLS
The empty half of an egg shell is the best tool to extract stubborn bits of cracked shells that have fallen in the bowl.

You so can cut a lemon or lime in half and squeeze through a small handled-strainer.
