Ever since reading Crazy Sexy Diet, I have been diligent about getting more greens into my family's meals. Finn will actually eat a wide variety of vegetables, but he is not big into leafy greens, so in order to get him to eat more, I need to be a bit sneaky. Here is some of what we ate yesterday:
recipe for kale and apple muffins and decided to give it a shot. I used about 1/2 the honey suggested in the recipe. They came out not quite sweet, and not quite savory, but I thought they were pretty good. Not nearly as sweet as the normal fruity muffins I regularly make and they tasted healthy (in a good way). Finn helped to prepare these (and saw the kale go in) and still ate 2 of them when they came out of the oven. I guess that means they passed the test!
this vegetable hash, although I left out the mushrooms because I didn't have any and added parmesean cheese to the top. I thought it was pretty good, although Finn wasn't much of a fan. Honestly, I am more excited to cook up the leftovers with eggs in a scramble this morning than I was to eat it for dinner last night!
I am planning on slowly trying to change my family's taste buds to less sweet. We eat decently healthy, but do eat a lot of white breads and other starches, and I want to try and cut back on these (as I write this I am eating a piece of bread with a square of dark chocolate on top-- ha!). Anyways, I will be in search of more sneaky ways to get lots of veggies into Finn's food!
