Well. Back to work has been fab. I love teaching, I love being in school, I love picking up my happy kids after a day playing with their pals at daycare.
Because I am not home as much as I was last year, however; I haven't been able to keep on top of E's eating habits as much as I would like.
The kid is ALL carbs.
I mean I would be too, if you know, I wouldn't become a million pounds :)
To combat his carb obsession, I have gone back to pouches... for "dessert" :)
D will eat kale and spinach (and any other veggie) in it's natural form. E not so much. I continue to offer veggies (whichever ones we are having) at every meal, but I also have been giving them pouches for "dessert."
They loved this one - and it is PACKED with the good stuff!!
I don't work for Squooshi, but I love them. Check them out :)
Give me some GREEN Squooshi Smoothie
We use organic, fair trade, and or local ingredients
1 cup kale
1 cup spinach
2 sweet potatoes
2 apples (with skin)
1 cup grapes
Steam chopped veggies until fork tender.
Add about ¼ to ½ cup of the liquid used to steam the veggies (the more water, the thinner, and smoother, the puree).
Blend until smooth.
I use an immersion blender and a tall cup. This allows me to move the blender up and down the cup until the mixture is really smooth (it takes about 5 minutes).
