I have the hardest time getting my kids to eat their vegetables…same problem? Or maybe your diet could use a little more veggie “oomph”. For a while now I have been tricking, errr…masking veggies in some of my recipes. I can remember over hearing my grandmother say to my dad under her breath, “chop it up small enough and they can't pick it out!”, as I stared into my bowl of spaghetti, searching for the tripe she may or may not have slipped in there. Is tripe even nutritious?
Anyway, I'm getting pretty bored with the old cauliflower-mashed potato switch-a-roo and went on a search for new things to fool…I mean covertly introduce to my kids. I have discovered The Sneaky Chef! Missy Chase Lapine is a part of Parenting Magazine's line of experts and is the genius author the The Sneaky Chef. She has 4 books currently out full of recipes to help boost vegetable intake and one that sneaks a little more exercise into your kids day. How brilliant!! I'm looking into the one titled, How To Cheat On Your Man (In The Kitchen). My husband is almost as bad as our kids!
