Today's Food Adventure
I hate to cook. Now, I CAN cook, I just REALLY dislike it usually. Blending.... now that's different! I thought I would share my creations for today.
Let me start first by showing you one of the new fruit I bought yesterday, it is called persimmon (shown above). It looks like a tomato but tastes more like a thick-skinned peach. We were going to use it in today's smoothies but we liked it so much that my 6 year old and I couldn't save it and ate all I bought right away. I think we'll have to buy lots more next time!
Here is a link for some persimmon facts: http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/persimmon-fruit.html
Today's smoothie... spinach, dragon fruit, apple, aloe vera, blue & blackberries, banana, hemp hearts, ground raw pumpkin seeds and steam distilled water.
Another new fruit we tried today was star fruit. A little tart (should be bright yellow but my daughter (again) couldn't wait)
For lunch I made some raw pumpkin seed butter (2 C raw pumpkin seeds and 1/2 C coconut oil) on multigrain bread. Tomorrow I'm going to try banana pancakes with just 1 banana, 2 eggs and maybe some ground seeds. Such as, flax or pumpkin.
It's very encouraging to see my 6 year old drinking and eating so many fruits and vegetables! How many parents can say that?? :-D
