attempting to solve the picky eater situation, yet again!

21 Sep

Well here we go again!  Does anyone else deal with a picky eater, I’m sure you must.  My pick eater is 2 (well there’s others in this house, but for now I’m focusing on her!)  At daycare she will eat pretty much anything put infront of her…. why will she not do this at home?  I’ve tried so many tricks, and yet nothing seems to work.  We eat quite healthy in this house, lots of veggies and fruit and whole grains, salads etc.  Yet she will eat:  applesauce, yogurt tubes, frozen peas and frozen fresh blueberries.  On occasion she will eat a banana.  She hates meat, and won’t touch any other veggies.  So today I made some banana pumpkin oat muffins.  She ate half of one, maybe this is progress?  I’d love any tips from YOU!

getting a picky kid to eat

10 Aug

My two year old, like most I assume, is picky – picky with a capital P.  Feed her something one day she loves it, the next – refuses to eat it.  Will only eat frozen peas, not cooked, and that is about the only veggie she will touch (unless I sneak spinach in my smoothie and share with her)  Today I attempted to bring some excitement to her snack – it worked, a little .. she didn’t eat it all but did try a bit of each thing! YAY .. small successes are exciting 

Healthy Eats

10 Aug

Good morning!  Well I am on a mission over the next while, as I mentioned previously, to really focus on my health.  After eating pretty much anything I wanted (aside from my egg allergy) I now have restrictions.  I’m choosing to look at this in positive light!  A challenge of sorts to find new and unique meals I’ve not normally contemplated.

My breakfast today was inspired by the genius Angela of Oh She Glows http://ohsheglows.com/2010/05/03/are-you-an-athlete/    I made my overnight oats – soaked in coconut milk and also had my Chia treat.  If you’ve never heard of Ruth’s Hemp Foods, you should
check them out. http://www.ruthshempfoods.com/products/chia-goodness.html SO DELICIOUS!  I love the cranberry ginger regularly, and the chocolate is a perfect treat when craving those sweets!  This morning was like a special dessert!  After soaking the oats and chia overnight (in separate bowls) all I had to do this morning was blend up some of my frozen berries with a bit of water and milk, layer them and dig in!  I almost didn’t take a picture because I wanted to eat it at once.

Now I know that one important thing (for me) is that in order to eat healthy I need to plan my meals in advance, so I already know what today’s lunch will be – this gives me some comfort! (and of course a healthy morning snack – fresh picked blueberries! – we have 40 lbs!)  Lunch today will be my Edible Flower Salad.  I love that on Wednesday’s we have the local Langley Farmers Market here.  I get to go explore and find some tasty goods.  I picked up some edible flowers and had a delicious salad yesterday, and will enjoy this again today.

Speaking of Salads  here are a couple others that I have conjured up!  My watermelon salad is so fresh and tasty – adding Feta makes it just that much more delicious! And of course you can never go wrong with a Kale Salad!
And finally for dinner – I have left-overs of the delicious sort!  Fresh Salmon from the amazing 1Fish2Fish here in Langley http://www.1fish2fish.ca/
