I know, as a Mom, we strive to feed our kids the healthiest things possible. But life gets busy, right? So here are a few random things I quickly threw together today for a healthy and QUICK lunch for Samantha Smith:
GreenFed Beyond Organic BBQ Ranch Roast — leftover from mom and dad’s dinner the night before, this pre-cooked pulled beef is fast, healthy, and absolutely delicious. I don’t even bother re-heating it for Samantha. She just devours it with her hands. It’s messy, but oh-so-good!
Sweet Potatoes Bites — I had these organic taters delivered from Spacegirl Organics and, again, cooked them in the oven for our dinner the night before. For lunch, I cut them up into square pieces (after removing the skins) and sautéed them in a pan with a little organic oil just to get them a little firmer on the ends and less messy for hand-feeding.
Seaweed Salad — I picked this up at a little health store on my way home from running an errand. Is it weird and smelly? Sure! But she doesn’t know that! And she eats it right up. I fed her the seaweed salad with a baby fork after cutting it up so she wouldn’t choke on the stringiness.
Peas — I buy organic frozen peas from Publix and pour a tablespoon or 2 into a glass jar and keep them in the fridge to thaw. I pull them out and add them to her plate any time I want more greens. They are the perfect finger food because they are easy for her to grab and they have a great sweetness to them that non-organic peas usually don’t have.
SueroViv — I mix Suero Gold and Suero Raspberry in a little cup with a straw that Samantha gets instead of “fruit juice” (which is usually less fruit than juice) and she gets calcium, potassium, and magnesium from this delicious beverage.
