Picky Eater

Let me first update you on my Deceptive Delicious experiences. After the green cupcakes disaster I tried a more girlish look and use more attractive colors. Our current favorites pancakes with beets, carrots or sweet potatoes. Sarah loves the colors and is now reacting disappointed when presented a “regular” pancake. Pink pancakes are THE thing to eat. I use whole wheat, rolled oats, ground flax seed, ground almonds, and wheat germ to make this breakfast last a few hours LOL. I usually add a hint of maple syrup and vanilla to the batter and I bake about 7 and then freeze them separately.

I see it happen every day now…chicken (usually made with less than 1% bird content) nuggets, hamburgers and hot dogs, followed by candies and ice cream, the usual lunch or dinner at the pool. It doesn’t have to be that way! I pack fresh veggies and fruits, a Caprese salad (mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and basil), whole wheat sandwiches with omelet, or just plain good old fashioned peanut butter sandwiches. It so easy to take a few slices of a good bread and turn them into a colorful, great tasting, fun looking, nutritious meal! Bring some home made lemonade or ice tea and you’re good to go! Another great and easy solution: cold pasta salads and cold soups (gazpacho).

Stay cool!
