This morning we made smoothies. Don't let the picture food you ( I added it last minute as I forgot to take a pic during the lab ;). The smoothie were all natural with no added sugars and low fat yoghurt. Afterwards, students researched why kale is considered a super food and why it is the only vegetable that can grow year round in he lower mainland. We also looked at the health benefits of flax seed. And yes, a majority of students enjoyed them!
