Earlier this week I was expecting to make and share a recipe for a baked treat. Nice plan. Nature intervened by hitting us with a heat wave. With our local temperature at over eighty degrees, I started going through the refrigerator for chilled foods.
I found this recipe at latinonutrition.org and thought of all the fresh fruits at my grocery store. I can picture taking my niece and nephew to choose their favorite fruits, then debating whether to use a spoon, fork or knife to spread the peanut butter.
Please take a moment to check out the Latino Nutrition website. The starting page is full of links to useful materials for all aspects of health, including the No te hagas pequeña campaign. No te hagas pequeña encourages women to be powerful, stand tall and be comfortable with themselves.
I’ll be back to check out Latino Nutrition’s home page – for the downloads, recipes and tips. I just saw their statistic on calories burned by dancing. Keep up the good work!

**(parentheses above are my notes) I think frozen or fresh fruits of other varieties can be substituted – drain juice if possible, to keep the burrito from getting soggy.
