Below I have vanilla yogurt with tangerine slices:
Kids love noodles and pasta. But you can buy whole grain pasta and turn it from a junk food extravaganza into a nutritious meal! I love the wild yam pasta you see below; but Shana loves the brown rice pasta:
Think of all the pasta your kids eat–macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, etc.–it’s all made of white flour meaning they’re eating nothing but a big bowl of sugar! But it doesn’t have to be that way! Buy whole grain pasta and REAL cheese! You can even buy Raw Milk Cheese:
What about Cereal? Kids love cereal. But nutritionally speaking, commercial cereal is a disaster! Look at what you can get at the health food store:
There’s nothing in this cereal but brown rice, that’s the only ingredient! You can also get puffed corn and puffed wheat. And check out the granola bins!
Here is Shana’s favorite hot cereal: Cream of Wheat. There’s only one ingredient in this one–whole wheat. We have to order it over the internet but it’s worth it. www.CreamOfTheWest.com . (Of course, the commercial cream of wheat, though delicious, is nothing but white flour–meaning, a big bowl of white sugar!)
What if your child needs something sweetened? Here it is, raw sugar! No, not “brown sugar”, RAW sugar! It actually has nutrients and fiber! How can you enhance your child’s cereal? Add real fruit and raw milk! Raw milk hasn’t had all the vitamins and enzymes boiled out of it!
OK, look at the time…. I’m not done, but I DO have to cook dinner now–no frozen dinners here, no microwave; so, you will have to excuse me, but, I will be back next month for Part-2. Are you with me? Let’s get started!
