As moms of teenage boys, it’s a constant battle to make sure they eat their daily dose of fruits and vegetables so we’re adding “no thank you bites” and “try it Tuesdays” to the menu. Granted, these strategies are usually used on picky toddlers but the again…
With spring just around the corner and the local farmer’s market about to open, what better time to sneak some healthy kale or brussel sprouts into the boys’ diets. There are so many online sources for recipes that inspiration is just a click away and one of our favorites is Camille Styles.
Her Tuesday Tastings and In Season posts are the best and a number of her meals have been boy tested and approved (although one of them quipped this weekend that wholegrain flatbread pizza is NOT a substitute for the real thing!)
This weekend, we’ll be trying the Quinoa Harvest Salad and hope to hear “may I have some more, please.” So, what’s cooking in your neck of the woods today?
P.S. In case you’ve never used the above mentioned picky eater strategies, “no thank you bites” gives your child the right to say no thanks after they’ve tried a bite of something new and “try it Tuesdays” allows you to test a new recipe on the family (and get their feedback – positive or negative!) If you want any of the recipes pictured in this post, just click the image.
