Was I to enter the land of oval shaped breaded chicken wads or chemically-colored orange goldfish? Or, could I possibly make that piece of broccoli actually taste delicious? Maybe my daughter might like a pea pod or a cucumber slice if I could just override the green, crunchy, not so fancy effect of the veggie.
It would be a challenge, but I was up for it.
It’s not hard to find something healthy there, but more importantly, tasty! What I have found is that if you can mix the veggies with something like hummus, spinach/kale dip (mixed with greek yogurt), or guacamole..mix it with a bit of salsa, you have a great BASE for any veggie concoction. You name it…steamed broccoli, peas, cucumbers…the list is endless.
Add some spiced chicken (which I broil every week) or a Smart Dog…and you have a meal!
She also loves the Kabocha squash, which adds a bit of sweet to the savory.
Ok, she really is like this when she eats. Having a blast. And..it’s broccoli.
Fruit in a bag. Messy? NOPE! It’s freeze dried, and if you live in Phoenix, that is a bonus. Everything needs to be temperature friendly, or it melts/rots/stinks. These rock the casbah! So, I’m just having fun watching her enjoy good food. Good tasting and good for her. Cookies? Sure. Treats are just that…treats. She will have her share of these, and I don’t want to make any food forbidden. However, if she can eat the non-chemically treated food, she may just like the real stuff better! 🙂
