MVSD Family Engagement Newsletter
The month of November is associated with the holiday of Thanksgiving. Traditionally, it commemorates the coming of the pilgrims to America. With our current situation of a pandemic, it is time to reflect and show gratitude for our blessings. Showing gratitude will in turn help us physically and emotionally become stronger individuals. Cultivating an attitude of gratefulness also builds resiliency and helps us cope with situations that arise and gives us the ability to move forward. To keep gratitude in the forefront of our daily schedule, write things down in a journal, give thanks to those around you for the everyday interactions and make gratitude a daily habit.
On behalf of the MVSD Family Engagement Team, have a safe and joyous holiday!

Nutrition- Holiday Dishes with a Healthy Twist!
The holiday season has arrived. It’s time to find your favorite family recipes and start cooking. While many of our favorite dishes help us to remember special times in our lives, choosing healthier options does not have to be a challenge. Add more veggies such as nopales, spinach, broccoli and bok choy to those favorite recipes. Don’t forget the lean proteins - lentils, beans, chicken and fish. Try baking instead of frying, flavor with herbs such as cilantro and rosemary vs salt, and substitute applesauce for butter in baked products. Eating turkey? Dark and white meat without the skin reduces calories. Remember a little bit of gravy goes a long way. Above all, enjoy quality time together!
