Hi there everyone! I have been raw myself for 2 weeks (yeaa!) and my kids for 1 week. After seeing good results for all of us I have no intention of going back to SAD (or quasi-SAD considering all our food allergies). Mostly because I threw all our SAD food out – lol!
ANYWAY! I am struggling with “meals” for the kiddies. I have no problem munching down on a salad or quickie lettuce wrap or some juice for myself but I feel neglegent giving my kids just a sliced up banana for breakfast. I tried making mylk out of nuts and another out of bananas…and smoothies…and they want nothing to do with them. I tried dehydrator cookies and pancakes and burgers. Again, they want nothing to do with them (which just frustrated me as that was a lot of work!). I even tried the banana ice cream which I think is phenomenal and they only take a couple bites. Now they will munch on fresh fruit. My oldest can eat 5-7 apriums (apricot/plum) in one sitting but, again, I feel neglegent. I am so used to giving them a meal with all the “food groups”. Their meals used to be something like “grilled chicken with cooked veggies and applesauce”. Now I just slice up some fruit. One will eat “crazy bread” (from the dehydrator) with sliced avocado and the other eats some salad…but that is going to get real old, real quick. I just whipped up some banana-bread to make PBJ sandwiches…but again, that is going to get old.
Any suggestions??? I seem to always be stuck when it comes to lunch and dinner. I have TONS of RAW cookbooks but the cabbage salads and stuff like that…I know they will never eat.
Thanks to any and all! ;0)
