So how do I get my kids to eat the foods that are healthy and amazing for them without them turning their noses up and/or only taking one bite?? How to I make sure my food rejecting son gets SOME protein, and green veggies??
How do I get them to eat stuff like Avocado's, Spinach, and sweet pea shoots?
Voila!! Drink up babies!!
Here is a list of ingredients I put in my smoothies. Not all at the same time of course. I mix and match creating different flavours. Most ingredients are Organic and/or local products....
I usually eat these in the morning, and post workout.
Frozen Berries, or fresh picked
Spinach, lettuce or other greens. Jam them in there.
Shoots of any sort...like broccoli, sweat pea ect..
Peanut Butter/Almond Butter
Chia, Flax Seeds
Raw Unsalted Nuts (macadamia,almonds,Walnuts)
Honey, Agave Nectar
Coconut milk in a Can (love the chunky stuff)
Pumpkin in a Can (organic is so so good)
Almond, Rice, Coconut, or Raw MILK
splash of juice ( I'm not a juice advocate..so use a tiny bit or non at all)
That's all I can think of off hand..I'll add more to the list if I think of some later. Have fun with it. Mix and match and try different things. The point is to jam as much vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, fiber, protein and good calories as you can. Your skin and your bowels will thank you ;)
