Gluten Free Recipe:
- 1 butternut squash, preferably wide with a long stem end
- Coconut oil, butter, or ghee, melted (about 2 Tbs.)
- Sea salt
- Pizza toppings of your choice, including tomato sauce and cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400. Line 2 or 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. After peeling the squash, slice the stem end into ¼ inch thick slices. The wider your squash, the larger the diameter of your mini pizza crusts. It's best to pick a squash with a long "stem end."
- Scoop out the seeds at the bottom part of the squash. Slice and roast these pieces and enjoy as a snack or side dish.
- Place the squash slices on the prepared baking sheet. Brush lightly with the melted oil and sprinkle with sea salt.
- Roast for 35-40 minutes, until tender and lightly browned. Flip the squash halfway through baking. Add pizza toppings and broil to melt cheese. Serve immediately.
- The crusts are not crunchy, but they provide an easy grain free pizza crust that stands up to plenty of cheese and sauce. You can eat these with your hands or with utensils.

Make 2019 Your Child’s Best Back to School Year Ever
|Starting a new school year can be exciting (and sometimes stressful!) for kids and parents alike. Between shopping, new schedules and everything we do to prepare for the big first day, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. Here are a few ways to help families ease the transition from the lazy days of summer to early mornings and hitting the books.|
Focus on Health
Back-to-school season is the perfect time to schedule your child’s yearly physical, eye exam and hearing test. Health experts recommend checking a child’s height and weight at least annually to make sure they are growing appropriately for their age. Tell teachers and the school nurse about any allergies to food or medication your child may have. And remind kids to wash their hands frequently to combat exposure to germs at school.
Talk About Schedules
Whether your child is in elementary school or a high school student juggling after school sports and a part-time job, it’s important to find out his or her schedule. Discuss any clubs your child may want to join and be sure they aren’t overscheduled. Study time, playing with friends and downtime is important, too! Asking older kids about carpooling with other parents and students can alleviate the burden of transportation and helps children feel involved.
Begin the first day of school (and every day) with a balanced breakfast. Running late and skipping breakfast can make it difficult for children to concentrate. A balanced breakfast such as eggs with whole grain toast and fruit provides the protein and energy kids need to do well in class. Packing a healthy lunch and plenty of water is another way to keep children feeling refreshed and alert throughout the day.
Practice Your Routine
Plan and practice your back-to-school routine a couple of days in advance. Begin by having children go to sleep around the time they would on a school night, wake up with an alarm clock, get ready in the morning and arrive at the bus stop on time. Establishing a routine and practicing it with children will help them feel more comfortable on the first day of school.
Let’s face it. Making the transition from summer break to a new school year isn’t easy. But with a little planning, preparation and communication, we can help kids make this year their best ever!

Babies Born by Cesarean Section are 33% More Likely to be Diagnosed with Autism
New research has been recently reported in moms.com blog as well as Daily Mail regarding babies born by cesarean section. It is reported that these babies have a higher chance of developing autism as well as ADHD. Swedish researchers lead by Ph.D. student Tianyang Zhang, analyzed data from more than 20 million births in 19 different countries. During this study, it was found that 33% more babies were likely to be diagnosed with autism and 17% more were likely to be diagnosed with ADHD, compared to vaginal births.
Researchers suggest that the increase in these diagnoses may be associated with the fact that a baby born via c-section is not exposed to important bacteria located in the vaginal canal. This leads them to believe that this could impact the development of a baby's immune system and lead to potential autism and ADHD. However, other experts in the field discount this theory and believe that it is not the actual c-section operation that causes these diagnoses but the fact that these babies are predisposed to autism and ADHD, and that is why the c-section was needed for their birth in the first place.
The study explains that there was no difference between mothers who elected c-section vs those who needed ones for medical or emergency reasons.
It is important to note that one in five children are now born via c-section, a number that has tripled over the last thirty years.
The published study used for this post can be viewed at the JAMA Network Open.
If you believe your child or your client has an attention difficulty, SIRRI can provide you with an Assessment to pinpoint specific strengths and weaknesses and design a customized plan to make certain weaknesses are addressed and improved.
