Yes. I've documented my girls eating problems here before. I've taken to finding new stores to shop in and new ways to getting some new HEALTHY food items in their diets.
Smoothies with SPINACH in them:
Y'all! The smoothies have SPINACH IN THEM!
I got the sneaky recipe from Simply Seleta, a very fashionable and chic mom living in Florida. She has a fabulous blog and the recipe can be found HERE.
Straight strawberry is better for us and doesn't have the RASPBERRY SEEDS that made it UNDRINKABLE to AE. I do advise against using a mixed berry version.
A couple ladies asked if I bought the protein powder that Seleta used in her smoothie recipe. I found the same brand at an awesome local health food store, but I don't think it's the exact same as she had in her link. I searched the link she had to find a store near me.
Here's a picture of what I bought:
I've even had it just mixed with milk. I'll warn you, it's green!
My girls WILL eat fruit but they are obsessed with these two "dried" and "freeze dried" fruits. OBSESSED, I tell you!
Both are from Trader Joe's, and I sadly lament the fact that there is no Trader Joe's in our area. Last weekend when I made that short trip to Atlanta, you can bet I made a dash over there to pick up some rations!
One of my favorites. HJ's too.
I thought these might taste like our favorite All Natural White Cheddar Cheetos, but I was WRONG. HJ ate a whole bowl full after nap time one day. AE spit hers out and cried foul. I ate one and quickly put the bag away.
I've been on a sea salt kick lately, so I bought these. They're not bad, but the girls didn't go for them.
Thanks for stopping by!
