Healthy Eating on a Budget!

Today, we continued our healthy eating.

Our teachers showed us how easy it is to eat tasty, nutritious food

without breaking the budget!

Again, we fed 50 people for just over $50.00.

There was plenty of food and we all returned for seconds and thirds.

Some people even returned for fourths!!

This is what we ate today:

Firstly, pasta bolognese.

These are the ingredients:

ONIONS, GARLIC, HERBS, MINCED BEEF,

TOMATOES FOR A RICH SAUCE AND PASTA.

ALL TOGETHER IT MADE FOR A HEARTY, FILLING, TASTY MEAL.

The final product was delicious!

The second meal we had was Fried Rice. It wasn’t just ordinary fried rice.

It contained so many ingredients.

It included rice, prawns, chicken, bacon, egg, spring onions, sausage, and broccoli.

These two meals included the three main food groups which make up a balanced plate:

CARBOHYDRATES, PROTEIN AND VEGETABLES.

We were very full after this meal.

These two meals were very easy to prepare.

They were filling, healthy and nutritious.

They were also not as expensive as one might think.

WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM THIS TODAY?

We learnt that it is cheaper and more nutritious to eat at home!

It isn’t that difficult to prepare healthy food!

Google Car and Re-positional Potholes!

Look at this photo.

What do you think it is showing? 

Do you think these are huge potholes in the road?

Do you think this might be a dangerous road for cars to drive on?

Could cars be damaged if they hit this pothole?

Now, have a look at the next photo:

potHole2

Did you work it out?

Yes, they are re-positional potholes!

Why do you think the traffic authorities

would want to use these on a highway?

Now, think about what problems these re-positional potholes might solve.

Could they actually create more problems on the road?

Now watch these short videos on the Google car:

Now, think about what problems the Google car might solve.

Could the Google car actually create more problems on the road?

Write back and tell me what you think?

Try to convince your readers about how

either of these two new innovations could resolve some traffic problems,

or perhaps even create more!
