baseball, apple pie, and . . . green smoothies?

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Jul 05, 2010

I was asked recently for photographic evidence of my son Tennyson’s snacks in the dugout that radically differ from traditional standards. It wasn’t easy to capture boys sitting together eating (since they are usually PLAYING), and this isn’t the greatest photo, but here ya go.

I love baseball, but I don’t love blue PowerAde and Red Vines and salted sunflower seeds that you see my son’s teammates eating.

I do love apple pie–the LaraBar kind! (It’s a raw-food snack widely available now, even at Costco.) And green smoothies. Here you see Tennyson, who Coach tells me leads the team in all categories, with both.

No, my high-school junior doesn’t take Mom’s healthy stuff in the dugout any more. That’s okay–I give it to him at home before the game.

    My son drinks green smoothie in the dugout during baseball too! His coaches and team call him the “green machine”!

  2. I found the Larabar three weeks ago at Costco too! LOVE LOVE LOVE them. My kids like them too! They make good church snacks when mom is loosing her mind from getting all the kids ready.
