My mother-in-law knows that I have VERY picky eaters in my family (and I'm not just talking the kids here!) and she knows how I'm always fretting that they're getting enough nutrients. She sent me this cookbook and if you haven't heard about it ... you've got to check it out! Here's the link: www.thesneakychef.com. There are a ton of recipes I can't wait to try!!!
Here was one of the reviews. I just like the sound of it. Stealth vegetables!
Parents can sneak veggies into kids' diet Washington, D.C --- Parents who want their kids to consume fewer calories and eat more vegetables might find a healthy solution with “stealth vegetables.” A Penn State study shows that decreasing the calorie density of foods by adding vegetables and other lower-calorie ingredients leads to a reduction in children’s calorie intake and an increase in vegetable consumption.
I had read an article earlier this month on Jessica Seinfeld's book (Jerry Seinfeld's wife) called Deceptively Delicious, and thought that this would be something perfect for me (ya'll know how much I like to cook!) Apparently Sam's mom read the same article, but when she did the research, this book (The Sneaky Chef) has a higher rating. Here's the link to Jessica's book: http://www.deceptivelydelicious.com just in case you're interested.
In any case, thought I'd share! I'm all about making things that disguise vegetables that the kids hate ... I'd rather not have to hear the crying and the frustration of "eat your vegetables!"
