Today, seniors DeAnna, Hayley, and Stephanie presented a class on healthy eating to the 7th graders and highlighted a cool website, www.foodfacts.com. I had DeAnna and Hayley in my class the first year I was a teacher at Groton. They did an excellent job and I wish them well next year when they enter college. This was a part of the New Visions program all three attend. Above, Star and Tristan sample Waldorf salad, humus, and pita chips that the presenters prepared for us as an example of a healthy snack.


3 tart apples - peeled, cored and chopped 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 cup seedless grapes 2 stalks celery, chopped 2 green onions, chopped 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 2 tablespoons plain yogurt 3 tablespoons apple juice 1/4 teaspoon celery seed 1 bunch watercress, trimmed and chopped 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, combine the apples and lemon juice. Add the grapes, celery, and green onions; toss.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, apple juice and celery seeds. Spoon over the apple mixture, and toss gently.
Wash the watercress, and dry thoroughly. Arrange greens on individual salad plates. Mound the apple mixture on top, and sprinkle with the walnuts.
