Cristeen ~ Always remembering our warrior ~ Our is 3, how'd that happen?!?!
We welcomed another warrior in May 2012!!
2012 Decluttering challenge - 575/2012
This is how we did it: (*disclaimer, I have never and will never drink or ask my children to drink sauerkraut and seaweed smoothies. Yuck! I have one pretty picky toddler and one extremely easygoing baby as far as food.)
Breakfast became coconut flour/almond flour waffles with butter, fruit compote and vanilla spiked unsweetened whipped cream, or "dinosaur clouds" (peice of chicken or ham topped with stiff whipped egg whites, and the yolk placed in the middle in a little well made in the whites, baked at 350 until yolk is done), coconut flour banana bread french toast... so we kept some of the faves just changed how we made them and definitely pushed the protein. 2 yr old doesn't love eggs, I have to be creative. I make his waffles pretty much an omlette with a tbsp or two of coconut flour and splash of cream.
Lunch, my kiddos love soup so I just replaced the noodles with more meat, and do egg drop soup often. They also love chicken fingers, so I bread chicken with almond meal and seasonings. They like to dip in gravy, so bone broth plus some fat and seasonings becomes a yummy condiment.
Snack platters are a big fave. Veggies, fruits, cheese, meat, nuts, and dips.
Roll ups. Ham/chicken/roast beef/turkey smeared with cream cheese, or melted cheese (ya I know dairy isn't paleo but we LOVE us some full fat dairy). Left overs are good too.
Dinner you already do well with.
Treats, bake your own, you control the sugar and other stuff going in. Dark chocolate is a great treat!
Was going grain free and primal a struggle? Sometimes yes. But after 2 months, my boys are happy and don't often complain or ask for foods that we don't keep in the house.
A little tough love (not to the point of sauerkraut and seaweed smoothies ) may be needed, but with lots of other options available (sorry sweetheart we don't have noodles, but we have a. b. or c. which would you like) the transition should go relatively smoothly.
Could you share your chicken tenders and waffles recipes?? Pretty please
